Isle of Man with Dave Roper on a G50

Posted: January 20, 2012 in British Bikes, classic bikes, Vintage British Bikes, vintage racing

This video is a classic, check it out if you haven’t seen it.

You get a real flavor of what the circuit is like rather than on the heart stoppingly fast modern bikes.

The Matchless doesn’t have stratospheric revs or power, but uses all it’s got in the hands of a true expert Dave Roper.

He narrates the video in a calm and relaxed fashion and somehow remembers where the (long) track goes.


  1. Excellent video, very cool!!!
