Thanks Jondog9 - that was good watching. Almost comical the other bikes overtook and one left him in such a short space of time!

A long time ago, I'd planned to go & attend the TT, but getting ferry tickets was an impossibility for anything less than nearly 2 years ahead!

You know there are no speed limits 365 days a year in I.O.M, right?

Everybody knows everybody on the IOM. I was visiting a friend over there back in about 1991. He was trying to buy a new VW GTi at the time and his insurance agent was trying to get him a quote on it. He was only 18. Well, one day we took his Dad's Ferrari 348 for a spin and we headed out to Castletown from Douglas. We flew by a line of cars at over 125mph. Left them standing. Unfortunately, his insurance agent was in that line of cars. She recognized the 348, knew his dad was out of town so it had to be Glenn driving it. Told him to find insurance elsewhere with that type of driving. haha.

Somewhere in that fireball is Guy Martin.
Guy only does road racing & does'nt do circuit racing because its boring he says.
Its one thing we Brits are still good at.

3D and I'd puke LMAO. Mind you I would probably puke if I was riding like that too The TT is something I'd really like to see one day, but it's so hard to get there and then accomodations and travel to and from. Need a friend there I reckon. I got peeps in Ireland, but it's just the wrong bloody island

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
