I couldn't agree more mate.
Have a great time on the island!
With you on hoping for a win for Guy, might have to be the smaller GSX though...

Can't explain it, maybe it's a Northern Ireland thing, most people I know prefer the more modest William.

I will there as part of the Buckeye Current electric motorcycle team. Rob Barber will be riding for us again this year in the TT Zero event and we will share his paddock space. This is a student project made up of undergraduates at Ohio State University.

Fantastic, I have been a fan of the TT Zero TTXGP series since they first came to the Isle of Man TT.

I wish you all the best, have a great TT

I was going

But I had a stroke instead, so I will be watching on the internet instead. I think the result depends on if Michael Dunlop can fine tune the BMW for the course in their 1st year together, it certainly has the power, and he is such a competitive bloke. I loved the BBC coverage of the NW200. The race where he was pipped by his brother William was spectacular, 'Don't do that again' he quipped to him after the race. And being an Aussie, I'd like to see Josh Brookes do well, only in his second year at the TT, but now on a familiar bike.
Cheers,
Mark

Give us some idea of the logistics, are the bikes shipped? When do you go, where are you staying, will there be an adv sticker on the bike ;-) ? I'm over next Friday morning and will be up to say Hello.

They didn't hang about! I work in Belfast Docks, and saw them catching the Belfast-Cairnryan Ferry at 11:30 am yesterday. Must have driven straight to Heysham yesterday evening. I was going to ask them if they had any freebie give away stuff for the kids, but they were having tea in the trailer.
