  1. Broadway next! There’s a big pot hole in the centre of the road
  2. No need for overhead cables the potential (no doubt poorly sourced) electric tram will have a battery pack on the roof to power it. Charging for 3hrs whilst filling up with unhappy faces before embarking on its return journey
  3. no queues on broadway as no traffic lights is the biggest benefit, i noticed the pinkcrete has almost entirely broken off where it meets the tram rails. When you drive the full length its kinda OK, sh*t finish but at least its not a suspension workout like it used to be.

    Better than Our Yorkshire Farm? With 4year old watching her dad skin a lamb and pointing at it saying "Not Happy Daddy"
  5. Tidy beaches and countryside are something we should always aspire to. But litter is totally divorce of climate change. Bill Dale is tidying the planet not saving it. Good work but not to be confused. Building anything new build or the renovation of existing is always going to generate enormous amounts of CO2 as concrete and it’s ballast is one of the most footprint heavy products in existence.
  6. Any changes to the road layout could be fixed for TT with a few barriers and trackside protection. The whole area on offer is huge to once you utilize the QB car park pub and the old shop. Time for a one way system using Kirby woods or nsc as the centre

    TT 2022 ??

    This bit makes me think you know more than you have said! Streaming sounds plausible, North West 200 first did it more than 10 years ago. Red Button and BBC Sport Streams etc. TT 2022 programme has already been announced with more changes to come in 23 as already announced to some dismay. The other road races on the island will see bigger changes to their organization structure and formats in the coming months. None of it welcome.

    Bray Hill to Quarterbridge is perfect

    Birmingham Nec bike show coming up and I can’t spot the IoMG or an official TT exhibit. Unless the manx motorcycle club are running the TT again https://www.motorcyclelive.co.uk/exhibitor/manx-motorcycle-club/
  10. IOM Twitter is practically non existant. There are ~3 covid obsessed accounts all retweeting the same thing and mainly trolling Lawrie Hooper, its hardly a large online movement!

    Less bikes on the course is the future of the TT course, hopefully not diminishing grids but certainly smaller. Remember there has been a 'root and branch' review of road racing on the island.

    Scoreboard wont be needed as next years grid will be so small you will be able to hold all the info your head
  13. not good when chasing after a dog or small child who is pedalling away quite happily, surely this should have a green and stainless anti-motorbike barrier like everywhere else!

    Ride to the conditions generally means the weather not the track conditions. I noticed the high profile newcomer doing laps of the TT course in his fancy transit van yesterday

    TT 2022 ??

    Ralumac surface has been applied from just after hairpin to waterworks now, its again very poor and in no way fitting for a race track. White lines will be painted soon and then its off to ellerslie for tea and medals.
