Kona’s Product Manager is a huge moto fan. He recently travelled to Ireland’s Isle of Mann for the world’s craziest motorcycle race. Here’s his report. To see Pat shred all things bike himself, watch the second video.
Our man Jimmy Moore, owner of 6 Konas, finished top American again, 2nd best privateer (non-factory team) for the week, and an 11th place in the final event Friday, the Senior TT. Jimmy rode for the East Coast Construction Yamaha team this year. His crew chief Colin used to be the crew chief for the late Joey Dunlop and then for the Kenny Roberts MotoGP team before it disbanded. Colin brought some of the old bikes he wrenched on for the parade lap including one of Rutter’s and one of Dunlop’s.
Here’s a link to a video from 2009 that I think reminds me of my experience there the most. Paddy
