Tom Loughridge's Race Days
|Isle of Man TT - page 6|
|By this time I
was wasting my time trying to compete with a near standard 500 production bike against
RG500s. TZ350s/750s, 900 Ducatis and the like, with average race speeds of 110mph, even
the last of the Bronze Replica winners was averaging over 100 mph down in 19th
place. I then sold the bike.
