Credit where it's due, weren't many people come past me when I used to get a shift on but Northern Irish plates and people doing some unofficial practice / set up on race bikes! That could only happen at the IOM that's why I love it so much!!  ;)f


Have seen  lots of video clips of Joey and Robert and others doing the same thing in NI many years ago anyone see this happening?

back from the TT, had a fantastic time.. I loved every single minute. The icing on the cake was both the amazing weather, and good friend Dan Hegarty came 11th in the senior and winning the privateers

It was common practice here, I (and a few others) used to set our race bikes up in the local industrial estate...... It had a link road that ran right around it and one part had a half mile straight, perfect for plug chops..... :D

What a trip, had a great time IOM is some place at TT week, it's got to be a must for anyone into bikes. But the icing on the cake for me was my rebuilt RD didn't miss a beat, even on the all night run in the pouring rain from Liverpool ferry to Beauly, must have done about 1000 miles on the trip quite a few of them in the power band ;-)
Please......anything but an electrical problem!!!
