His ride. Didn't work to well unfortunately. I think about 1 1/2 laps of practice, and less than a 1/4 of a lap in the race.....



Hmmm. Seems to be loss of sharpness between my iPad and the asylum...? WTF?
Whatever. The poms braze frames betterer than the Italians. And nice to see a big Yam, as opposed to the normal Suzuki.

Yep! You're on to it! My dear Sabine, who I met at Mugello in June, rode her Hypermotard up from Southern Bavaria to join us for the fortnight.
That's our humble little camp/workshop, housing between 7&9 of us in a tiny caravan, three tents, and a mini van. Fantastic! Surrounded by the best people in the world.

May be the original motor is kaput? Or in mothballs. So to run the rest of the bike a suitable (cheap, replaceable) motor is used? Maybe it like 75% of the bike has to be old.. ??

What ever - they are having fun which is the main thing...

Oh I'd say so, at least! A good spot to try some smaller local fare is down at the Bay, in Port o Erin. Usually some interesting drinks, and people,(!!), down there!
Did I mention that these luvly bikes get absolutely flogged, for two weeks?
William Dunlop, doing that....



Gotta luv it.

I'd love to try all those beers there... except that Coors Light I see, can't believe they go to the trouble of transporting that weasel piss all the way to the IOM.
