Motorbike fans can enjoy an Isle of Man TT races event in Cumbria.

The Lakeland Motor Museum in Cumbria is showcasing its Isle of Man TT collection to motorbike enthusiasts.

With the current TT Races ongoing, the museum provides a fresh opportunity for fans to delve into the history of this famous event dating back to 1907.

The tribute features a hall of fame, video displays, and a timeline, offering a comprehensive history of the TT races.

Among its exhibits is an array of motorcycles loaned by TT legend John McGuinness, nicknamed "The Morecambe Missile".

McGuinness holds the distinction of being the first racer to break the 130mph lap record in TT history, and he is considered one of the most successful Isle of Man TT racers ever.

Rare vintage motorcycle collections from the 1920s and '30s provide a nostalgic glimpse into the past for visitors.

Keen enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to see a set of leathers worn by McGuinness while racing.

His iconic motorcycles, including the 2007 Honda CBR1000 Fireblade Superstock, which seized second place in the 2007 Superstock TT, are showcased as part of the exhibition.

Chris Lowe, curator at the Lakeland Motor Museum, said: "The Isle of Man TT is one of the most prestigious races on the motorcycling calendar and takes place every year."

He further highlighted the daring nature of the event describing the 37.33-mile circuit as "the most dangerous road-race in the world".

He expressed hopes that those unable to make it over to the Isle of Man this year might instead pay homage by visiting their tribute exhibition.

Among the Superbikes exhibited alongside the TT bikes is the 1985 Ducati 900 S2, 1991 Ducati 851 SP3, and the rare Honda RVF750, or RC45, known to cover a 1/4 mile in 11.1 seconds with a remarkable speed of 160mph.

The Honda RVF750 is recalled as one of the best-made Honda motorcycles and a much sought-after Superbike of the '90s.

The museum also harbours a distinct collection of AJW motorcycles from the 1920s and '30s and other makes including Norton, Suzuki, Honda, Ducati and Triumph.

The Lakeland Motor Museum's collection of 30,000 exhibits, including 140 classic cars and motorbikes, covers a span of more than 50 years.

Beyond the machines, it presents a social context around motoring, offering a trip down memory lane for motor enthusiasts.
