Mad mad stark staring Mad

Anyone just watch the prog on ITV4 about John McGuiness - They have to have a screw loose to do that.

 

I was there when first 100mph lap was posted and now it's 131mph - I can still hear the Honda 6's and MV 6's coming over the mountain. - Good old days when I was 21 - 47 yrs ago -

An amazing place, and a crazy week, gets me all tingly just thinking about it. Such an atmosphere. Balls of steel those guys have. I much prefer Guy Martin mind what a lovely bloke. Have you seen 'Closer to the edge'?? That's a cracking film :good:

The TT zero race (electric bikes) was fun

 

All 3 podium places cracked the 100MPH lap, (McGuiness was second) fastest was 104MPH, first time in a race the 100MPH lap had been broken giving Michael Rutter a £10k bonus

 

:shaun:

Motorcycles give me the heebie Jeebies since I met a chap after he was struck by a car and ended up hitting the raised kerbstone, ultimately resulted in a hindquarter amputation. Decided that I was far too wussy to ride a motorbike.

Got to admit that I do agree that they have 'balls of steel'!

Manhandling a 260kg battery pack doesn't sound like much fun compared to a 120kg 1000cc superbike.

 

I will stick to petrol, thank you all the same :good:
