How hard do they ride?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - TT 2017 PREVIEW -

In 2011, racer Dave Hew­son broke down at Greeba Cas­tle, and spent the ses­sion watch­ing. “Dan Ste­wart came through. The track drops away there and his Blade spun up and wouldn’t set­tle for 100 me­tres. It wasn’t slap­ping, just wob­bling. But it did it hard enough to snap two cable ties and despatch his transpon­der across the track. I went to see Dan later to re­turn it, which he was quite pleased about. ‘Looked like a bit of a wob­ble,’ I said. ‘Oh, it wasn’t that bad,’ he replied.”
