The potholes were certainly big enough to disappear down without trace!

Some say it won't be possible to have an RTC only five minutes after roads opening, but year on year we edge ever closer to breaking the sub 5 minute barrier.

Well I’ve just seen a first for TT2019, two motorcyclists riding on the pavement outside Port Erin chippy. Because there isn’t a great big fuckn road they could have used.

Some boy racer threw his Fiesta over the edge and rolled it down a field this afternoon. Looks like the local chavs have been out in force on the one way system mostly leading to the road closures today.

I’d say it was more pants of brown than balls of steel.

As an ex side-car passenger I would say it’s more likely a combination of both.

I drove back from Ramsey this afternoon and the weather was shite.

I was third car in a procession of maybe a dozen ( as it turned out when we got to the Creg,) and we were all going about 35 mph because we could only see about 4 white dashed lines ar a time due to the fog. 

I could not believe my eyes when a local, black hatchback passed everyone on the right hand side not having a clue what was in that lane and It only just got back into the single lane of cones in time.

Complete prick.

Unfortunately he got a green light at the Creg, before I got to speak to the Policeman at the lights.

No wonder the locals get a bad press when we are the focus of so many people.:(

I’d say he’s perhaps leaned his lesson. The car looked to be in a bit of a mess.
