Thanks

Takes me right back. Except for the run into Ramsey, Parliment Sq. (nice viewing spot), and The Gooseneck, it's a complete lap and at a pace us mere mortals can comprehend.

Shinden 3 project preparation is now started in U.K.

It was a very tough schedule to make the shipping and move to UK immediately after completing the final domestic test in Japan.

The maintenance of the bikes will take place at the MUGEN Euro facility, as was the case last year.
The significant difference from last year is that the number of machines is doubled and therefore the maintenance time is also doubled.
The MUGEN mechanics are still suffering from jet lag after landing in England and immediately getting ready for the test on 21st and 23rd of May at Castle Combe.

There is a real concern that the test schedule will be adversely affected by the weather in England, but we are determined to do our best for the last practical Shinden 3 test before the race event.

I love the TT Zero class, they sound like Tie fighters when they wizz past!

Yeah, kinda wierd coming from such a hard rider like Michael. He always seems a bit pricky towards those that beat him, but that was more tense than I thought it deserved. Even with William trying to laugh it off.

I see him as a Lance Armstrong type character (leaving aside the drug use for a moment) who uses inner anger to get everything into his race and maybe that carries over into the post race situation somewhat. One things for certain, it's building up to a great TT. The continuation of the McGuinness V M. Dunlop battle from last year is mouth watering.If Micheal brings home major race wins for BMW ,it will be seen as a master stroke by them for bringing him aboard.

I assume practice starts this weekend? Looking forward to it now. I was over a few weeks and took my BSA for a spin over "the mountain".




I doubt it will be so peaceful when I get there next Friday.

I'm on the plane and on the way! As a lifelong Buckeye and good friend of CG Cantemir, I can't wait to see you guys run! Let me know where you will be so we can hook up! We need at least one O-H-I-O!

OK will do. It is cool to meet other OSU alums and/or fans at the TT. We leave tomorrow midday for Dublin. Should be in Douglas Sunday afternoon. We did get in an a few OH-IOs at the wards ceremony after the race. Hard to say what folks thought of 11 deranged people shouting that. Probably thought those damn crazy Yanks!
