    Location is rhencullen. We were lucky enough to be invited by a resident to sit in their front yard. No idea what speed they are doing but very fast.

    It has been mumbled about for some time. I'd be surprised if he will be well enough to ride it in anger...maybe a parade lap....but you never know...

    Thank You.
    The bottom one is on the new (Norton)bike. but not on his site.
    I found those and really want the sticker but shipping to the US is more then the cost of the items ( I wanted a hat too)
    Shipping on the sticker alone is only a few bucks I guess.

    Just to keep the excitement up....one of the best on board videos from the holy island. Hicky on the Beemer HP race carbon fibre framed rocket.

    Check out the 5 gear wheelie he pulls after the Creg.... :thumb

    Is the gearing on that 1 up 5 down? looks as though he is shifting up for down and down for up.

    That'd be called 'Race Pattern'.
