looks like fun

I have found the learning curve to be nearly vertical - but I'm having so much fun I'm seriously considering selling my trail bike - it hasn't moved in anger for about 2 months...

Had a days paid training yesterday and I can see I really need to do that fairly regularly if I'm going to keep progressing.

Pretty lucky to have a great spot to play in 5mins up the road. There's a lot to learn but it's heaps of fun and reasonably easy to bail out when it doesn't go to plan.

That isn't the Isle of Man TT Races. They are run on a time trail basis, with riders staggered a min? apart. I think that video is a composite of some pre-races, including the North West 200 in Ireland.

Guy Martin is a real character. A documentary was done on him a year or so ago during TT week. He has also been on Choice TV recently doing up a canal boat with his mate.

Bruce Anstey is a Kiwi, that hasn't has much recognition here, but is a real hero on the IoM.

I'd thoughly recommend putting the IoM TT week on the bucket list. I'd love to go again. It's a special place.

At first I thought the ram had a hand up its' arse moving the head but then when it started running I realised it was a Weta remote control one. Amazing what they can do now.
