Tom Loughridge's Race Days

Isle of Man TT - page 6

scan5s.jpg (25460 bytes) 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.
