6 The Great Bear of Wall Street,

In that same year, 1923,
The winner of the worlds most important road race,
The Isle of Man T.T.,

Stanley Woods.

What became of him?

He won 10 T.T. Races between 1923 and 1939,
He lived on the Isle of Man and rode motorcycles all his life. He lapped the island circuit at 82 mph in 1957 (The Golden Jubilee) aged 54

The Moral:

Ride motorcycles!!

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.
