In 1999, the book “Tourist Trophy – the Prohibited Race” became a cult publication for lovers of the oldest, most adored, feared and dangerous motorcycle race in the world, so much so that it had to be reprinted in 2004. Now, author Mario Donnini returns to the subject during the centenary year of this race over the Isle of Man mountain circuit, due to take place in 2011. Now is the moment of the new book “Tourist Trophy: a Real Case of Living or Dying”, which goes much further, delving like never before into this Temple of Risk, providing explanations, previously unpublished anecdotes, secrets, analyses and backstage intrigues about the legendary and fearsome race, including interviews with stars like McGuiness, Hutchinson, Lougher and Anstey. All accompanied by first hand exciting accounts by the author who for the last 17 years has lived for those two weeks of the year on the IoM, in close contact with the race, the champions and the legends of this fascinating and daunting road race.

HONDA CB 750 FOURS

In a list of the 10 most significant motorcycles in two-wheel history, there is no doubt that the Honda 750 must take one of the top places. But it would also be included if the list were to be whittled down to five models – or and even three. Because when the machine went on sale in 1969, it radically changed the world motorcycle panorama. If two wheeled machines were seen as a mere substitute for the car in previous decades, a spartan vehicle and, with rare exceptions, one of little fascination, a revolution took place with the arrival of the Four.
Now, the motorcycle – this motorcycle – is even preferred to an open sports car in that it is a vehicle of enthusiasts’ dreams due to its extremely modern appearance and high performance: for the first time, a production bike was capable of 200 kph. The technical content was extraordinary, with its 4-cylinder engine, which had previously been reserved for racing, the front disc brake and its five speed gearbox. On top of that, the machine had an electric starter, a feature that alone pushed many a “motorcyclist” into buying it, people who until that day would never have dreamt of giving up their 4-wheel transport the day before the Four came out. Competition was off-guard, so the arrival of the 750 meant the opposition immediately aged at least 10 years. And if that’s not a revolution…
