Very nice - thank you!

I liked when you opened it up to a reasonable speed - but it begs the question that if you and others felt OK doing it, why were so many sport bikers going so dreadfully slow there that you were passing them?

It may have been their first time on the Isle of Man, Ive been round it hundreds of times, so had the confidence to go a bit faster.

if you start the video at :16, you'll see that a wheelie was exactally what he was goin' for next.
