No Sykes I don't know the lad, but I've heard he's a madman, I don't think they will stop the racing , they never did at the TT.I'm a bit out of the sence now, but still love bikes and keep a few prize bits of kit for blown out the cob webs and my boy got the lust for them as well . What bike are you using for the track?

I had predicted on Friday morning that his sons would race and they did.
Which I feel was quite correct.
William was soon out with mechanical trouble, in the 250cc class.
20 year old Michael won the 250 class, same class as his father had died in while practising for on Thursday night.
And he did WIN it it was well hairy at times, no freebies there.
Nedless to say everyone, including myself, was "greeting like a wean" when he won.Very moving.
They buried Robert on Sunday afternoon.

Ahhh L'esprit gaulouis , fumées en France, Bon. The 600 is spot on as a track day tool , I've not long sold my Yamaha/Bimota YB8EI 1000, I had it marked as the greatest FZR made ! NON?
