Hello mate, 2017 saw both McGuinness and Guy Martin crash badly on Honda race bikes.
McGuinness is still having problems with his leg from that crash due to the throttle sticking. The leg injury caused him to pull out of this year's TT with Norton because its not healed well enough.
Guy's Honda had a technical "glitch" or in Yorkshire language that means "a box full of bloody neutrals" which caused his bikes front wheel to hit a kerb and forcing him to dismount at 130 to 140mph on the road course.
Guy quit racing completely after that, although he has capitulated slightly and returned to some racing.

I've never seen Guy lost for words and that says it all about the bike and what happened.
He wanted to speak his mind as any true Yorkshireman, but of course the corporate bollox gets in the way.
The TT race is not the place to be "testing" anything on bikes. If it ain't ready then don't take it there is the message
for any manufacturer.

See his get-off and after interview.....

Without subtitles I can’t be sure but it sounded like he contradicted himself saying first, “box full of neutrals” and then later saying, “it’s not like I went for a gear and it wasn’t there”.  Makes no sense does it?
