“Cases from the Races” – presentation by Doctor John Hinds (R.I.P.) on critical care in motorcycle racing, with some unconventional interventions that work for his team in ultra-rapid response situations.
Racing is life. Anything that happens before or after, is just waiting

The awesome solidity of the surrounding objects, the smooth pace and the relentless momentum, make for a very peaceful, tranquil and calming three minutes 🙂
get me airbed blown up in me van… bit of a wank and go to sleep… proper!
Guy Martin, TT3D Closer to the Edge 2011
A good quality M8 x 1.25 HSS tapered tap, some stainless M8 socket head bolts and a bit of imagination with the airbox cap…
This bike took me on journeys to such tropical destinations as Brittany, Swindon and Swansea. She was dynoed only once, producing 101 BHP, with a theoretical top speed of 143mph. Top speed was tested only once, on a runway, resulting in an indicated top speed of 140mph.
The bodywork was particularly useful in heavy rain as one can hide inside it as Oscar the Grouch in a dustbin. More than one short faired sport bike rider was embarrassed by the Cat in wet conditions. Dunlop D207s and Hyperpro front springs completed the picture allowing silly lean angles (even at low speed) and late braking. The R1 brakes with braided lines provided enough power for two finger stoppies, while the stealth bodywork brought an air of sensibility to the whole affair.
This bike has now been sold.
