    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. :rofl

    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.
