Ok folks, a bit of a photodump from last night and this morning. The pit board pics kind of show Michael Dunlops lead developing.





















The race was delayed due to this accident. Chap was in bad shape, got a run in the helicopter to the hospital.

Fantastic days racing today again, with two more wins for Michael Dunlop.

I had a couple of great video clips, but i was videoing a helicopter which landed beside us at Cronk y voddy. Turns out it was landing to pick up a biker who had a heart attack just beside the ferrari and porche shown in the pics below. I was deleting the clip, but deleted everything. I have linked a youtube clip from exactly the same place we were sitting. Some of the pics are not great, but the bikes were doing about 160-170mph, and I am not a pro photographer.

Lots of similar pics here folks, sorry if it gets boring.

Sweet!
Are the electric bikes dead silent?

I was on the IoM in 2008- for an International BSA rally. The rally coincided with the Manx GP practice week. It was a complete gas. Your pix serve to remind me of that great holiday, where I rode a loaned 60? BSA not only all over the Isle of Man, but a total of 1400 miles around the Island & in England.

Thanks for posting!

The home office arrived today, and there was no racing, so we had a bit of a family day. I know it wasn't a biking day, but I have a added a few pics below to show the atmosphere.

Those Nortons are a 500T, trials bikes. Hardtails. Close ratio gearboxes.

Very rare in the States.

My friend had one, and was the vintage trials champ a couple of years in the '90s. He even had a trials sidecar for it. See below.

Thanks for posting all these photos, they're great.
