To  think that the Isle of Man TT used to import bike thieves to do the stunts outside Bushy's. Bike wrecking scousers.

First rule of learning stunts is to use someone else's bike.

Is that really true?

Actually, they were just cheeky cuddly scousers who happened to have a natural talent for showing off in front off crowds down the estate on bikes that cost more than a year's wages. that got totally wrecked in the time it took to share a spliff.

Where were you in the 1990s?

During TT week, outside Bushy's watching riders doing stunts etc. None of whom slot into your description of them.

And what are you basing this sweeping generalisation on?

My bad.

Yes, they were all of course cheeky, cuddly scousers. And had been all their lives.

Potty, did you fall for one of those loveable scouser rogues when they were over? It rather sounds like it.

Well, having been involved with bikes for over 40 years  I wouldn't like to accuse anyone of being a bike thief or anything (it was big stuff in the 1990s and some of our best bike stunt talent cut their teeth at impromptu North West council estate bonfire parties.
