So in the real world what you are saying is.....................

New riders come over before the races and ride round the "course" which is mostly a, no more than B ROAD  UK equivalent road- at speed

During that "Learning" process it is not uncommon for these  "limited intelligence, IOM government prize money chasing Competitors"* to ride to the islands road rules, I.E no limit on lots of the island roads that form part of this "racing circuit""..

P.S. , don't even go there with these high standard/ experienced "skilled" riders with an International license and that sh1t.

You well know that riders licenses do the rounds on their own to get a signature to make a TT ride OK.

* There are no Nobel prize winning types riding for money on our death race 🙂

There's nothing happening like you say, you are completely out of touch as you so ably demonstrate. It's impossible to fiddle your licence and racing capabilities these days, organisers have access to all of your results, no matter where in the world you come from. 

Riders are driven around the course by a qualified instructor at normal road speeds, in fact quite slowly. Not many choose to ride a bike on their own to learn the course, you can't get much of an idea about racing by riding on open roads. It's mainly about remembering landmarks, turn in points and apexes etc. Some come over and drive around the course, have you had a problem with that?

You can try to denigrate riders as of limited intelligence, you obviously don't know any. I'm sure that you would be seen off by most in a battle of wits! There's no Nobel laureates on here but you still seem outclassed!

Allinson on the NPM this morning, giving it large, everything in the garden is rosy. The hoteliers are expecting bumper bookings, people are looking at the island as an alternative destination. I think the good doctor has a severe dose of Skellyitis, a variant of bullshititis, but more infectious. Symptoms include ability to distort and manipulation of figures, telling gullible people what they want to hear and keeping a straight face at the same time. This disease originated in the Department of Enterprise before spreading throughout the IOMG, but has laid low, until subsequently re-emerging. 
 

On a serious note, I think that this a prelude to an intense burst of serious money wastage - grandiose schemes like the deep water cruise berth will get another airing. Ramsey Marina and Ramsey Bay schemes whilst they are private schemes, IOMG will railroad and push authorities into giving the developers what they want for as little as possible. I can even see Laurence’s wish for a new TT grandstand plans get an airing. 
 

Incidentally many people I talk too, think the TT won’t go ahead due to Covid and the knock on effects.

It's always good to look on the bright side.

Bright side …………….. a dose of realism more like. Even if these throngs of tourists do come here, the dereliction, squalor and decay will certainly put people off from returning. 
 

If Allinson says that everything is booming and hotels are expecting bumper figures the perhaps the COVID support schemes need to be ceased. I would imagine the outrage from the Hoteliers and the LVA.

If I ever want cheering up on a Sunday morning I'm going to save your posts for Monday in future🤣

If experts like this Zahawi gent, as posted elsewhere, are predicting via whatever divine means available to them, that the virus is going to be around for another six-odd years how does that fit with the TT going ahead?

Probably similar to the way other sporting events went ahead around the world over the past two years?
