There are only two places where world class motor cycle racing is held on public roads, Isle of Man and Northern Ireland, both are on a downward trend and it is hard to see it being turned around. Everything is against it other than mild madness, I am a fan and hope it survives.

If it assists retired gentlefolk in getting a traffic free fill of oil then that's a big bonus and shows the human side of the Biking Community.

Well put young man and I agree with every word. Personally I wouldn't miss the North West each year although I can see ES's point about the future direction. Manx TT is also a "must see" however I must confess to preferring the Manx Rally...OK I'm a Philistine but I'm happy in my own skin.

"retired gentlefolk" who could ES mean? surely not David who doesn't have a gentle bone in his body since he fell off the top tree when wiring Sir William into the mains Such a job should be left to the injuneers who are well practised in all forms of wire pulling

The first rule of crawling is never crawl to someone who has less money than yourself.

I'll have you know that Mr Varley is a very affluent gentleman who owns half the IOM.
simply a gift of great gratitude. Not crawling at all.

Oh aye typical, I get the shitty end all covered in weeds and barnacles, and that is ES on a good day

Och your not too bad sire, Her majesty had a good word for you but unfortunately it can't be used in mixed company

Varley only owns that part of the IoM with the banks on it, he's no mug you know but just try asking for a loan. You will hear language used that certainly isn't Manx. Just ask ES, impoverished soul that he is, and if you believe that you also believe in fairies. he loaned Fred Olsen the cash to buy H&W !!!!

Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of Port. Hasn't quite the ring to it but along with a Vape Havana is good enough for most people.
Yo Ho Ho and a KFC Snack Box certainly tickles the ovaries of a goodly portion of the population.
Last time I saw H&W for sale the asking price was half a crown or two and sixpence or twa anna tanner in Aughafatten. We're sucking diesel today.

At last you've found something more palatable that black bothie bin juice but isn't the price a drawback? Do they have a Kentucky Fried McMuckburger house in Aughafatten?

Cancel the helicopter rescue, some unarseholes have come and done the sensible with the road furniture and reasonable legal access has been returned.

(I see the Aghafatten has a place nearby. Do they match his weight in Guinness every ten years?)

No thats the Preston Guild you're thinking off.

Aughafatten and the Braid Sheddings aren't exactly bristling with fast food joints as we regard them as the work of the devil. Followers of yer man in Rome and ones from the Irish Republic, always called freestaters, are also unwelcome as they are antichrists whatever that is. Drink, amber, black oder weiss ist verboten but we are a wee bit flexible on this one. Any more flexibility and we will be twinned with Las Vegas.

Aughafatten !! Heard its a terrible sinful place. Nightlife is centred around a phone box and a stamp machine that stays open till 22:00hrs. Ah well each to his own I say.
Time to get my bike from the mast house and have a pedal around the deck.

Aughafatten has nothing on Buckna !!!! they even have street lights all they need now are the bulbs.

I only had the misfortune of Sunderland Forge self igniting switchboards with the excellent ACBs of Whipp & Bourne. These only burned when set alight by the field of never-stay-tightened 'tulip' connections in which they tip-toed.

The one they provided for Pallion Huill 19 was, on owners insistence, provided without withdrawable starters and therefore without the many potential high resistance fault opportunities presented by both genders of their 'tulip' connectors. As a consequence it did not burn down.
