Just thought I would show you this, look how he is overtaking guys after the second mile.
Calm as anything he explains how you have to stay composed if your helmet clips the wall as you drive past.
There are stone walls on either side of the road.
Remember he is doing 180 MPH and the only rubber contact with the road would be the surface of your two palms.
There is loads more on YouTube
One story I heard about him in Australia. He was looking at a new motorcycle owned by a fellow cyclest and the owner told him to take it for a spin.. He took off down the highway at 200 MPH
The police put up a large visable roadblock to stop him when he was coming back.
The guy in charge roared at him !
WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE JOEY FECKEN DUNLOP?"
Joey took off the helmet and said "I hope so"
To which the officer said "Come to the police station at five O'clock tomorrow."
"Are ya gonna arrest me"Says Joey.
"Naw Just autographs and Photographs."
The other one was when he was stopped for driving a bit fast.
"Go a bit slower you might come across some mist or fog and what would you do then?"
Well says Joey " I would just have to put Mister foot on Mister brake"
I said "Mist Or Fog!" said the laughing policeman
