I went to The Isle of Mann to scope out having a ride in the Historics. I have some mates who have done pretty well there.

They fixed me up with a room right on the Promenade in Douglas. Beautiful country, that's a fact.

But I did one lap of the circuit (in the hire car) and said "Not for me".

I don't mind going fast. Even around corners. But WHEN I fall off I don't want to hit a Lamp Post (even with a pillow strapped to it !), a tree or a stone wall.

In places where there should be a ripple strip they have a 1 foot high stone gutter about 2 feet out from the side of a brick building.

I have heard that if the races do ever get shut down they intend replacing them with Russian Roulette. 6 spins for a quid.

Folki, just dawned on me, your a Pom ?

Ok. Why do the moderators on an Ironhead forum all come from some place other than Milwaukee ?
