What’s the old saying? God smiles on little children, drunks and fools?
Hi all, Steve just popping back in for a visit. I’ve seen quite a few of the onboard IOM TT vids but this one really stands out. Just hellishly fast!
Thanks to reader Johan Blom for pointing this one out to me.

I was searching the web for some movies of this project ( http://feber.se/bil/art/210331/saabskal_med_viperhjrta/) a SAAB with a Viper engine… But now to the fun stuff i found which might interest you – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvmnSiVpoH8.
As you can read in the comments “Short in bad english: A swedish motorcycle dealer bought the bikes as collectors items when they were brand new. Now, almost 20 years later, he puts them on display in his store. No, they are not for sale. :)”
So they are from the late 80s and early 90s and have been stored in their original boxes since they arrived to Sweden, and in march 2010 the were un-boxed and placed in the stores in glass cabins…

Maybe this old news but I thought let you know.
Thank Johan I had not seen this one before. It’s amazing to think that bikes like this can even exist. What an amazing find! Thanks for the information and the links!
Very well produced! If you own one you’ll get the joke. If you don’t own one hopefully you’ll appreciate the riding and hopefully the humor too.
Sort of a behind the scenes homage to vintage racing.. Thanks to Trinxol for the link. Not sure if this was his blog but it’s a cool spot.
Check it out.
