    I was sitting just above the dead bike on the right, and took a pic of you taking that pic. You were also behind me waiting patiently while I was gearing up. Took you a while too! :D. Maybe we catch up next/ this year?

    [QUOTE="A";20336391]Excellent stuff Bootlace.
    Find any dirt?[/QUOTE]

    G'day A. Yes, but not where I'd have thought! With a bunch of Germans on sport bikes, after getting snowed off the Passo Stelvio! Different... :huh

    Umm.., nothing, really. It's just kind of a sobering reminder of the realities, I guess. Behind the timing boards, opposite the grandstand.

    I love those little bikes. I have some Ducati 48cc Cucciolo motors that I would love to put into replica Ducati racing frames from the late 40`s
    I am tempted to go the the Manx instead of the TT

    Every day, just as at the TT, there's something to entertain. Like beach racing, under Peel Castle. (They do GOOD tucker at the pub too...):1drink
