Michael Dunlop laps Island at 109mph on NMM bike

Michael was representing Robert Dunlop in the Joey Dunlop 'the rivals' tribute parade lap held on Saturday August 23.

Not so much 'a parade' when Michael announced to Museum Director James Hewing that he was "going for it" and posted the incredible lap time on a bike he had never even sat on before getting on  the grid!
