Isle of Man TT: Honda TT Legends (Video)

2011 Isle of Man TT

The 2011 Isle of Man TT was particularly kind to Honda TT Legends’ rider John McGuinness, who scored his 17th TT IOM win after two victories at this year’s Tourist Trophy races.

But besides placing him in second with most Isle of Mann TT wins (Joey Dunlop has the most TT IOM wins at 26), his Dainese 6-Lap Superbike and Senior TT victories also brought Honda’s tally of TT wins to 159.

At the 2011 Isle of TT races, McGuinness scored both those wins, plus took two additional podiums – second in the 360 Royal London Superstock race, and second in Supersport 2 TT.

McGuinness’ Honda TT Legends’ teammate, who took fifth in the Senior TT, had a best finish of second in the Supersport 1 race.

Following the team’s great success on the Isle of Man, the Honda TT Legends will now take a six-week break ahead of the next round of the 2011 Endurance World Championship – the Suzuka Eight-Hour in Japan.
