Top Gear Bike Stig

Does anyone here watch Top Gear ?

I often do, not because I am interested in cars, but I think it's well presented.

I like the funny challenges they do and seeing how stars in the reasonably priced car do around their test track.

I have often wondered how a bike riding stig would do around that track on a full on sports road bike.

What do you think.

Would it teach bike hating Clarkson a lesson, or would it be an embarassment ?

Been done by 5th Gear

Sportsbike wins. :winkie:... and that's with Toseland 'showboating' with wheelies all over the place.

Damn

I don't seem to be able to see vids on my computer.

Clarkson raced a CBR600 on the track on one episode of Top Gear and then took the piss because the bike was way off the pace.

I somehow didn't believe it at the time.

So what happens on this vid ?

The Lambo / Ducati vid is from 5th Gear.

I've no problem with them because Tiff is into bikes

Both vids are from 5th Gear .. first is Tiff v Toseland ..Civic R v  Fireblade... bike wins.

Second is Tff v Leon Haslam ... Lamborghini v Ducati ...bike wins. (but it's close). :winkie:

!

I've seen the Lambo/Ducati vid.

I'm more interested to know what people think the chances of a bike being at the top of the Top Gear track ratings.

It hasn't been done, so it's only opinions.

Oh and Lambo V Ducati wasn't Haslam, but I can't remember who it was.

Got me thinking

I watched a vid a while ago, not sure who filmed it now, but it was a race between a Blade and a Porsche 911. The Porsche won by a knats cock.

I think it depends on the type of track. I would like to see a decent full on race bike, having a pop at the record though, I reckon it would be damn close though.

Top gear

Who can remember the top gear special when the three musketeers traveled across Vietnam on rather low powered bikes ?

I can remember Clarkson admitting he was rather enjoying the riding at one point and could understand the appeal ! That was on a clapped out scooter so I wounder what he would think of riding an R1 around the twisties .

Bless him :smile

Top gear track

 

Lets pay them a visit and see how fast a lap can be done on a road bike after all they can't be using the track all day?

I fear Clarkson...

may be a Bike Troll....whatever the outcome, he would never say a bike was better than the Cars.....some people just have attitudes you cannot change....it does help to be an 'opinionated tit',if you are on telly...I think that's what May's job is on the programme...to be a reasoning foil, for Clarksons sometimes 'extreme' views..a sort of 'calm down dear' moderator.:sunglasses:

The Trojan Horse

in the Top Gear trio is Hammond. He loves bikes and has shown it quite a few times both in Top Gear and in his very own documentaries. Rememer this race North when he was riding an old Norton... Lost badly but his spirit was soaring!

I've also dreamt about a biking "Top Gear" but let's be realistic - not in this programme, not with this team. Clarkson loathes bikes... I bet he doesn't even hold a motorcycle licence.

I love Top Gear even if it's only about cars though! :smile
