  1. interesting to see in this weeks' Motorcycle News the Bray Hill crash is given less than one column of coverage whereas a bus spilling diesel on the TT track is given half a page
  2. In great nick but haven't got a hood £18 Tel 453404
  3. Bought just before my child pushed through to size 3 so a couple of wears and that was it Tip top condition £20 Tel 453404
  4. ccm


    so how is this being funded then? surely not by advertising alone? are we the taxpayers paying for this service? is the Government backing it financially? sorry if these answers are available elsewhere but I've not seen them and would just like to know
  5. anyone ever sat in a car outside Braddan school, with vehicles going nowhere and an ambulance struggling, with its lights, horns etc going full blast, to get through traffic? what should have taken seconds took around 2-3 minutes. there are pros and cons to race week to me that's the unacceptable side of the TT
  6. disclaimer - for those who can't note the sarcasm riddling my last post ............ unfortunately my statement appears to be the attitude of many people (they know the risks etc)
  7. as long as we're all having a good time and making a bit of money, who cares??? party on!
  8. Schoolboy error JumpUp! They do not serve Whale or Herring in the Terrace chippy ...that's why you didn't hear me laughing
  9. There are a number of comments you made in the Cronk-y-Voddy thread that, to me and it seems a few others, lean on the 'very odd' side of the fence but hey, I don't want get drawn into the usual tit-for-tat rubbish that is often displayed on this site. Your opinion which you're entitled to and mine, which I'm entitled to. If you're going to employ sarcasm again, could you perhaps hint toward it so the rest of us also get the joke? Ta
  10. ATTENTION CENSORSHIP! I'm Manx & proud. It pisses me off when a) people from outside the Island are employed to do something that we on the Island can do and b) my taxes are going to someone off-Island when clearly they know nothing about my homeland For the record Censorship, having read some of your posts on this site you really do come across as a particularly disturbed individual who leads a very sad life. You must be very lonely in the evenings
  11. The nation's station is still sourcing work off the Island hence Bridson Street being named 'Brid-son' and not 'Bride-son' on an advert they're currently broadcasting Maybe if they'd employed someone local this type of gaffe wouldn't happen? And they want us to take their broadcasts seriously? Next we'll be hearing how they've only got two full-time members of staff and don't have the time to check mistakes like this
  12. With a 1630 road re-opening notice at Bulgham Bay, (read into that what you want), expect the inevitable news later in the day. Another reason why my kids will be kept away from any road for the next 2 weeks
  13. I've said it before and I'll say it again Look at the building Manx Radio occupies. It must be worth MILLIONS. What a location. Sell up and move to a cheaper site. Why should tax-payers/TV licence fee holders continue to bail out MR when it's sitting on a goldmine?
  14. point taken Censorship, if you'd just like to write out a cheque for £25,800 and make it payable to IOM Govt
  15. Don't be so hard on Henderson ..... better than a lot of the rest of the mob Houghton I'm not so sure about ....
  16. So far as I am aware no entity in England and Wales/UK has the authority to actually tell the Isle of Man judiciary what to do! Not even the Lord of Mann? She got involved when Teare was sentenced to death back in the 90s
  17. Had two flights go very low over us tonight between twelve and one a.m. Looked as if they were landing at Ronaldsway. They were about half an hour apart. I thought Ronaldsway shut at 10 or 11 o'clock?.
  18. Plus why would a speed limit be set at 70mph? It could be 80 or 90. When there is no limit then people are obviously thinking that the roads and their bends can be taken quickly. Otherwise there would be a limit in place if they were hazardous
  19. when the local newspaper screams the headline 'four deaths and twenty-seven serious accidents' then we're going to get the same old content if people behaved on teh roads then the question wouldn't be getting asked?
  20. One of them actually said (along the lines of) ...our thoughts are with his freinds and family but its sidecars next!! How crass! Ashamed to be Manx at moments like that
  21. I'm not convinced that was worth noting. Oil seems to be the topic of this thread Noted.
  22. No-one can say what happened until the inquest has been completed but it's worth noting one thing Oil does not kill, it's the walls and banks and telegraph poles and other obstacles that does that
  23. There have been riders killed at all of these tracks and maybe more in years to come, so what. Moto2 Now I thought HRC were behind that with the engines ???. This years TT will have the official Factory Yamaha Team competing and Possibly BMW. But who is paying for this? I think you'll find it's Shaun Muir Racing and not Yamaha. There's a difference between 'Official Factory Yamaha Team' and 'factory support from Yamaha'. Same goes for Honda, etc
  24. Many years ago almost ALL racing was on circuits such as the TT course. However many drivers/riders were getting killed and the universal attitude was enough is enough. Since then (lates 60s/early 70s) all the road racing circuits have either gone or improved dramatically toan extent where fatalities are now almost nil Except the Isle of Man which seems to be stuck in the dark ages .... One day we (or our children) will look back on these days and think why did we let this madness happen for so long when the world moved on many decades earlier
  25. Uuh, you started this thread. I dont know how many times Ive heard that the TT is the most dangerous activity on the Planet, but after just watch a program on BBC I fear not. Last year in Thailand 282 British Tourist lost their lives, and at the Famous Full moon party 8 Brits were killed. These figures are for British Tourist only and stated by the BBC to be the official figures. TT must be just a walk in the Park. I still don't get what happens in other countries has any bearing on what happens in the IOM If that full moon part thing happened here then we've got a topic. Otherwise we get into a vicious circle of my Dad's bigger than yours.
