  1. Stay away from dogs without collars,and men with collars,i was told.
  2. Does that mean we get more great usa goods? Like i. Pads made by Samsung, Gibson guitars that wont stay in tune,Harley Davidsons nuff said,Coffee served in soup plates,by costa starbucks etc,or great American cars like ...ehm hm ehm ehm... cant think of none. or Levis made in Mexico,which are good by the way.Will Britain go under if we dont get genuine American goods like ehm ehm.ehm.
  3. Anne Sacoolas is the name of the American diplomats wife,who killed young motorcyclist Harry Dunn,by driving on the wrong side of the road in the Uk,and then fled to the US after telling police she wouldnt.Could you sleep easily after that? What a great chance to show the world the US isnt the backward,gun totting,fat guzzling nation,that many of us think it is,if they would just send her back.
  4. I enjoyed Terrys dvds on the history of the visiting industry on the island,well researched and interesting,now im of for a pub crawl, a sherry out of the barrel at Yates first, then a half in the Dogs home,before getting a taxi to the Ballacraine for a nightcap.
  5. Anyone remember the public information film from the sixties telling cyclists to ride single file on country roads? Also coppers would book you for riding a bike with no lights in the dark ,or cycling on the pavement ,the old cycling proficiency test didnt have bikes on pavements.My cycling proficiency badge along with the "happy smile" badge from the dentists, made me a proud kid,if only i had won a "blue peter badge" too.
  6. Two weeks later,the UN says they have "Credible evidence"of Saudi prince role in Kashoggi case.
  7. Grainy footage! I was always told the US satellites could tell what brand of cigs someone was smoking.
  8. Gary Linekers £1.7 mil,is so much worth it, who else can talk about brexit,and the new cheese and onion walkers flavour so well?
  9. Ive always thought the lap numbers were too much,4 laps of the Senior is enough to prove man and machine,the sidecars have the right amount imop.
  10. Ok. lets phone around the Isle of Man boarding houses and ask for one night during the TT.When Lord Lucan answers and says, ive a room, let me know. 1981, was much worse , it rained night and day for the whole fortnight, except for a couple of hours on the second wednesday,but the bikes went out on treaded tyres,not something i agree with, i remember it clearly.as ive still got 70 odd pictures of that TT,this weeks practice has been poor, and the wind on tuesday evening,was even causing problems in low lying areas too,never heard if that was behind Ian Hutchinsons off at the 11th milestone?
  11. Have they got Norman Collier,producing the race coverage today?

  13. I have a TT 2010 spec case made out of computer mousemat material,which was stiched together and made and sold by an opticians, in Ramsey.Am i a rebel now?, this durable homemade trinket, has given me several years, of service, So now we will denied this quality stuff?.On another hand ,my wife who is "anatomically gifted" in the upstairs dept, always found it akward when wearing TT, official shirts with ,that logo on anyway, and once on holiday in Sorrento,an amarous scooter riding Italian,crashed into a lampost whilst distracted by this combo of logo ,and natures wonders.Can the owners of the logo be liable?
  14. In todays motorcycle news, the story of the Japanese factorys first visit to I.O.M,is told.The landlord of the Nursery hotel Onchan,where they were staying, advised them to stay out of the bar,which was full of drunks on a Saturday night.as they stayed for a month, their Japanese food went off and all they were offered was Lamb,Happy days!..it also tells of the story of Kunihiko Akiyama ,who was the star Honda rider who was killed in a road accident just prior to leaving Japan for the island.The team that arrived minus Akiyama,and before practice ,they buried a casket containing a lock of the of the the late riders hair next to the TT course..anyone know where that would be? Also it appears they were on the Clypse course not the mountain course.
  15. Was the Creg Mallin in Peel a nightclub in the early nineties?
