- TT 2014. Here goes!
So practice for newcomers has started. Hopefully everyone comes homes safe. Bloody dangerous old sport and takes some huge cahoonas to even think about riding in it.Posted 3 years ago
I’m sure a lot of people will be thinking of Simon Andrews as they head out to race this year.
A win for the tea drinking chief this year?
Anyone from here actually going?sucklingmattMember
I live here on the island and I enjoy the racing and the “life” it brings to the island. But the nutters who race around on open roads when normal folk are going about there business are just stupid. Heard a guy today bragging he got to 160 mph seriously if u want to do that become a racer but don’t put me and my family in danger it does my head in, and then they think they are in the right kn0bsPosted 3 years ago
Bloody hell, how fast and close was that Superbike race?
If Brucie hadn’t blown it at The Nook, that would have been one of the all time great duels.
I’d love to see him clean up for the rest of the week – man’s a legend.
The onboard footage of the Birchall brother’s crash was a bit of an eye opener too – both ok thankfully.Posted 3 years agototalshellSubscriber
HUGE motorcycle and motorsport fan and i have to admire th skills and commitment of the riders.. sure no one forces them to ride probably no one even has to ask them to ride.. a BUT is coming… BUT the poor folk who have to deal with the immediate aftermath neither want or ask to do it and never want to repeat it if unfortunate to witness a fatal incident.Posted 3 years ago
i worked with a woman who went for the week supported a guy as he died and had to go back and relive it at the inquest ..it didnt sit easily with her and she certainly did not return to the IOM again.
Turned up at Brands Indy for a trackday with a mate once upon a time, on arrival at circuit I noticed his rear spindle nut wasn’t there. He’s not known for his mechanical skills and has no concept how long ago he’d checked it… We’d done about 80 miles that day to get to Brands.Posted 3 years ago
My only trip to the TT was in 1992. 🙂
Four of us, me on the back of my mate Ged’s Marlboro LC.
Ged’s a nice bloke, good rider, but a bit numb.
Ran out of petrol on the motorway to Liverpool.
Saved by an elderly chap who’d managed to ride there from Austria without any problems.
We’d come from Manchester.
Get off ferry, breakfast, tents up, out for a lap.
Get to Ramsey and Ged’s Hislop fantasy kicks in.
Bike felt a bit off over the mountain, back end all over the place but I was too busy laughing hysterically to pay much attention.
Back to the garage opposite the grandstand we find 10psi in the back tyre.Posted 3 years ago
