No he hasn't done road racing before. Was a multiple British supersport champ and was unbeatable back then. Never quite made the transition to a top superbiker but has immense talent and is a proper tough guy.
Problem is that he does tend to crash alot which is an obvious problem racing with no run off!
Always loved the guy myself and been a massive fan so, like everyone else, just hope he stays safe on the roads!

BIG MISTAKE!!! Harris is prone to crash and crash big. Hustling a supersport bike around a sterile racetrack is a world apart from getting a superbike around the island. Harris never really produced on a superbike consistantly and his ambition always seemed to out way his talent. Leave it to the specialists, DO NOT DO IT!!!

Seems like it's any port in a storm!! Karl used to be brilliant on a 600 a few years back but after trying to ride 1000cc bikes his career just went further and further down hill! Also, Karl seemed to put on a shedload of weight and looked huge - too big for the bike really. It's a shame, but I think he is taking a big risk in the T.T. and should leave it alone - he is not a road racer !!

he should take a run out on one of the irish road races first,and see what he thinks about it before he tackles the tt,as far as i know he always wanted to do the nw200,thing about doin road races ,the massive thrill of goin so fast for so long,is just a drug to a bike racer,its like taken a hit of crack,you just want more of it
