Default Motorcycles we saw on the Isle of Man during the TT:

With the 2019 Isle of Man TT now in the books (as of a few hours ago), and with only ONE fatality this year, I thought it might be a good time to take a look at some of the other aspects of the TT. In this thread, I will show some of the motorcycles that I thought were interesting enough to snap pictures of.

First up is our blood red dry-clutch Ohlins-suspended Ducati Monster 1100S rental, with carbon-fiber Termignoni exhaust and no db killers. We found il mostro to be competent. It handled well, the suspension/tires/brakes were all good. It was surprisingly light. My only gripes are that the low-rpm fueling was a little snatchy, it didn't have a lot of top-end power, and it obviously didn't offer much wind protection at triple-digit speeds. The dry clutch was okay, even in traffic- I've ridden dry-clutch Ducatis before. I think if we had it to do over, I would have rented a Triumph Daytona 675R.

The third pic down is our visit to the Fairy Bridge, right after picking up the bike.
