1950 August Cycle Magazine – Hairpin turn at Isle of Man Governor’s Bridge

Cover Photo: S. Lawton / AJS – It was difficult to select a cover picture depicting Isle of Man riding technique for this issue. The T.T. races are strictly “feet up” all around the course. Governor’s Bridge is the slowest corner on the circuit but requires great skill to properly get around it. It is a downhill acute hairpin curve, speeds over 20 mph are disastrous. Note small boy plugging ih ears because of terrific din caused by low gear revs.

Contents: Editor’s Viewpoint; Isle of Man races – Nortons win Senior and Junior Races, Benelli wins Lightweight race; Greenhorn Enduro 1950 – Del Kuhn, Ariel, repeats his 1948 Greenhorn victory; Tuning the Motorcycle Engine; 500 c.c.

Filker, Alhambra P.D.; History of BSA Motorcycles; Roy Andres, H-D, Victor in Tulare Half-Mile Races; Harley-Davidson Dealer Harrison Reno, San Bernardino County, California; more
