    If that grassed area would of been gravel or a barrier he'd still be in it. Stay on track Seb, Lewis did.
  3. I've often respected your views, not these ones
  4. What dilligaf said. Ross is the man, you'll not find better on the island.
  5. Nope, just relaying the news.

    Out of interest, do you know what price it sold for?
  8. I thought it was one of the most dangerous "improvements" to a road I've ever come across. It's 30 mph through there, and absolutely no prior warning that there is an engineered ramp across the whole road. Hit it at 30 mph in a works van and see if anything is left on any of your shelves in the back. God alone only knows what it'll do to the sump of a low car.
  9. Play the link, "its exhausting" he says

  11. Not all JLR owners, Freelander 2 , HSE, Bought new in 2011 and serviced every year. 68000 miles done. Never so much as a misfire. Best car I've ever owned. (Not the best return on fuel though). Had a Merc before that and it was very problematic.
  12. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/new-vehicle-emission-equipment-for-doi/ Interesting to see how far this will go. People who have paid to have their DPF filters removed on diesels will be the first to cop it. GOV would love to bring in that fine. £1000 for cars and £2500 for vans having found that the DPF has been removed at test. (Currently in the UK anyway)
  13. Did you listen to him? Rambling nutjob.

    Pubs closing

    There was also a lovely cafe in the Garden Centre opposite Marown school. Its a hideous housing estate now. Not too sure if the Watsons used to run it. Used to be a specialist audio shop next door too. Mr Myers iirc.

    Manx Radio

    I don't ever remember Manx Radio getting any stick until some staff that used to work there decided that they could do a better job themselves, and went off and set up their own stations. Then it almost seems that they found out by accident that this takes quite a bit of work and money, so complained bitterly ever since that the playing field wasn't fair because Manx Radio was getting a leg up from the Government. (Just like it did when these guys worked there).

    Rate reform

    But why? What do they do that deserves a rates discount?

    Rate reform

    Why do farms pay much less in Rates? Don't their bins get emptied?

    TT 2018

    Comms breakdown aside, am i not right in thinking that all riders have to attend a riders briefing, and in that briefing they're all told what the return wrong way process is, and isn't it that it will only ever take place under group conditions with a travelling Marshall front and rear? If that's the case, how would a rider ever attempt to return without these conditions being met? No mater what a marshall has said, riders know they don't return till the travelling marshalls are ready. Or is that not the case?
  21. He dies because of an unfortunate accident. Not because the event was poorly organised.
  22. Sorry to inform the rally fans. Just came through to me.
  23. When you look at all the dry stone walls around the north of the island, including this sheep pen, doesn't it make you wonder how much hard, really hard work went into building them? Just look how long it takes in modern skilled labour to repair 10 yards of it, never mind gathering all those stones from the fields and building them in the first place. Without the aid of Diesel and hydraulics.
