Performance Bike July2015 issue

Welcome to the August 2015 PB. TT race week is always an interesting time in the PB office. The truth is, what with online live timing and Manx Radio commentary we get naff-all work done. Guy Martin is a long-term friend of the magazine, John McGuinness is a columnist and Michael Rutter is our road tester. All of them had a great TT and visited the podium at some time or other. Guy went faster than ever but the standout performance was by McGuinness. We interviewed him just before his triumphant Senior TT and he seemed a beaten man, but he turned everything around, wiped the floor with his rivals and set the quickest-ever lap around the Island. Rutter deserves recognition, too. As well as getting a podium in the Lightweight TT (in his PB-branded leathers) he also got a top-six finish in the Superbike TT and set his first 131mph lap in the Senior. It goes without saying he’s the fastest regular magazine road tester on the planet, read his thoughts on the Ducati Streetfighter and the MV Brutale inside this issue. Enjoy the mag…
