If this is for what I think it is I'd be happy to volunteer for gas pump duty or anything else to help.

Plus I need more beer.

You do know Pebble lives on Jersey don't you so he needs a ferry to do pretty much anything?

Pyn doing the TT now that would be a whole new adventure!!

Just think about the linkage. Because of the quality of that sequence, in slo-mo, they're gonna use that footage for quite a bit, I suspect. And every time, you get free advertising.

Dunno how much business it will generate, but what the hell, consider it bonus exposure from LPR Inc., all part of the full meal deal our people like to bring to the customer.

Nate; 'How is the Dakar for your dad, Robin? '
Pyn; 'Well, he's sitting here next to me. Why not ask him? Pull up a chair, Dad...'

Robins responses were music to me.

Thanks Nate, Lyndon and Robin.
That was an unexpected treat for me as well, I didn't know Robin was sitting there as we were chatting. Thanks, Dad!

I've long thought that the TT would generate some fantastic stories for RallyRAIDio, I just don't have any connections to that community.

Perhaps we should book a ferry as well?

While you're there pop in to Knighter's place and interview him about Dakar'14
(It's only a short boat ride from Pyndon's place.)
He's been quite vocal about being there next year!
Pyndon for HRC WC role in 2014! I bet Pyndon would have a few 'disagreements' with the HRC bigwigs about 'bike setup'.

This is Knighter's EWC bike ready to ship to SA.

Member Wideload is a marshal so we can be sure of one interview. The riders are certainly more accessible than Moto GP its just getting the right moment. Your real battle would probably be getting past Radio TT who like most things on the Island probably have some monopoly for radio interviews You might wake up with the kippers if you tread on too many toes!

Seriously I would look to approach the non UK based riders and focus in on them so the folks back home get that ringside seat that your recordings do. The TT is similar to the Dakar in that it attracts the amateur with a dream and sometimes their stories are the most interesting. If you could get Manx telecom on board to help with the mobile charges that could make it a lot cheaper, but if you are coming over I guess you would be recording it then uploading it. Manx telecom could help with a dongle.

Sounds like a fun project let me know if you need any logistics input. I have a couple of connections over there that might be useful
