@codger Sorry. codger, wasn't trying to hijack your topic, just grasping the opportunity to share memories of riders in black with numbers flapping on their backs, and racebikes with wire spoked wheels and drum brakes. It's so enjoyable reading @samas and his Irish racing tales. I had a week at the NW200 Festival this year, followed by a week touring and several visit's to Joey's Bar. The bikes are different now, and the leathers different colours, but the Irish Road Racing scene still has the flavour and the atmosphere which is long gone from todays race circuits. However, thanks to TV, we can now see whole overseas races live, so today isn't all bad. How else would we see Weston and Macau over Xmas, and Dakar live from Peru?
Happy New Year to all.
