hey @jonh long time, good to see your presence on EX yet again! I'll be scouring for TT coverage here in the US.

That's awesome!! What is his number? I'll look for him in the race.....though our coverage is sorely lacking and in arrears of the actual racing. IE, we "might" get to see the highlights a month after it's all gone down....if only there were a dedicated internet channel....you know, like MotoGP and WSBK...........sean

Bit late, but,


ROFL, He wasn't "riding" the bike, he was keeping the family tradition of wielding the spanners on it,LOL


It was a great week this year as far as the racing went, just the weather got in the way a little to much...bugger,LOL


On the subject of racing, I'm getting to bloody old for that lark however, I've got my sights set on some "straightliner" run's. I've had the gpz down at Bruntingthorpe for testing and I'll be taking it to Elvington speed week in September....time to see just how fast a gpz can be made to go,
Should be a laugh if nothing else,
