  1. McGuinness said this about his four-cylinder namesake: “The stars aligned for me to be back on a Honda Fireblade for my 100th TT start. It’s an awesome bike and has meant so much to me over my career. And, if I think about it, to so many other riders over the last 30 years, too. I’m proud of my connection with its place in TT history and of this, my replica. There is no event like the Isle of Man TT in the world, and this motorcycle celebrates Honda’s, and my own part, racing in it. That feels good. Really good.”
