A 2013 documentary about TT legend Joey Dunlop entitled “Joey- The Man Who Conquered The TT” – Not to be confused with the 2014 documentary “Road” which was also about the Dunlop clan and was narrated by Liam Neeson – is now available to watch for free online.

The film provides both an in-depth look into the life of the Northern Irishman, his monumentally successful road-racing career, and his personal life off the bike. Throughout the film, various people from Dunlop's life share their experiences and stories about Joey which provides an intimate portrait of the racer. Obviously there’s no one better to ask than the people who were there, and that’s exactly what the film maker has done in this short feature length documentary.

With enough thrust, a pig flies just fine.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

I watched this last night. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will probably watch it again.

A couple of quotes I wrote down early.

"Best drug in life (motorcycle racing)."
Roger Marshall

"Why?"
Interviewer

"You can come down from cocaine apparently."
Roger Marshall




"Don't go around a boxing career if you don't like being slapped around in the face."
Mick Grant

Very cool. Thanks.
If loud pipes save lives, imagine what learning to ride that thing will do.
