IOMTT 2017 – John McGuinness, what a man!

10th June 2017 by  in Daily Digest, Racing

IOMTT 2017 – In addition to receiving a standing ovation as he, together with his family, boarded the Mannanan at Liverpool dock, John McGuinness has been his usual giving self. As per normal he is in demand for interviews, PR cameos and glad-handing the great and good, plus queues of autograph hunters. A couple of days  [Read full post…]

IOMTT 2017 – Who left the shower on?!

8th June 2017 by  in Daily Digest, Racing, Rants & Raves

IOMTT 2017 – Just back from a trip up to the summit of Snaefell this afternoon on the electric railway, (I’m something of a control freak and I find the lurching, rickety, and somewhat decrepit Mountain railway a test of calm), having been assured, by my Chief Sector Marshal, (an authority on all matters Manx), that  [Read full post…]

IOMTT 2017 – Honour life’s opportunities to the full?

8th June 2017 by  in Daily Digest, Racing

IOMTT 2017 – An entry that I did not want to write. Today saw the second and third deaths during races and practices at this year’s TT. Davey Lambert’s death having been confirmed by the ACU earlier today following his crash at Greeba Castle on Sunday, we saw two more riders die in crashes today,  [Read full post…]

IOMTT2017 – Ginny nettles well deserved!

3rd June 2017 by  in Daily Digest, Rants & Raves

IOMTT 2017 – “And another, Rant Warning”, I’m afraid, plus some unpleasant anatomical information. Last night’s pinnacle of idiocy took the form of drunken yobs walking out on the closed track, “to see if the bikes are coming”! Between Knock Breck and Harold’s four men repeatedly walked out from the hedges and onto the race  [Read full post…]

IOMTT 2017 – Ride Safe People!

1st June 2017 by  in Daily Digest, Rants & Raves

IOMTT 2017 – “Am I getting even more curmudgeonly as time goes by?” Is a question I find myself posing ever more frequently – some of the standards of riding I see on the Island are stunningly subterranean. Riders coming toward you with full beam blinding you, (making it as difficult as possible to judge  [Read full post…]

IOMTT 2017 – Mountain curcuit’s “Memory lane”

28th May 2017 by  in Daily Digest, Racing

  IOMTT 2017 – My first full lap of the Mountain Circuit this year and an odd one it was too. Setting off at 05:10 in glorious sunshine, I was too late to avoid the bin lorries, delivery vans and early morning dog walkers. But, that first lap was memorable not for my learning about  [Read full post…]

After five days on the Island……‏

3rd June 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, Racing

……. ……. a lap of the Mountain circuit! A combination of weather, Marshaling preparations, Marshaling, Cafe support, (friends with whom I stay run a Cafe in Douglas), and sleep, combined to forestall my getting out on the bike to ride the circuit. Now that I’ve managed my first lap of 2015 I can relax, and  [Read full post…]

You save up your pennies…

29th May 2015 by  in Motorcycle Touring & Travel, Racing

You save up your pennies, save even more, (eldest scion needs a better car so savings disappear), start saving again, you clean your bike, clean your kit, clean the bike again because you went out for a ride, the day arrives and you set off at silly o’clock so that you can sit opposite the  [Read full post…]
