@Ringo
Guy can't get a start spot for 2012 TT.....bcoz you and all you're club racing mates have took all the slots. If he manages to get in he promises to leave it in 4th gear over the mountain so you and your pals look and feel fast.

Well done to Guy and Conor for just coming back and giving it a go, regardless of finish position. Respect.

Whats wrong with 2nd on honda island, alright guy may be a controversial character but his very nature has made him probably the greatest ambassador for the sport.Look at the interest he generated with both the motorcycle enthusiast and the non enthusiast in closer to the edge.I think the problem lies with the stuffy hierachy not Guy, he is an exceptional rider. Outspoken he may be but genuine .To the knockers i would say leave him alone he does an excellent job both on and of track.Peoples champion

Lets be honest about this.. All the riders are very brave men but Guy has brought the average person into the sport.. His charector wins over the hearts of 1000,s.. How many Suzuki's were up there... Yes 1 and that was Guy so that kinda proves his bike was not fully up to the job in hand and to push that bike into a second place slot was incredible. Most of the people that try and bring him down are beer drinking smoking couch racer wannabe's Jealous of his charector and talent. Yes McGuiness did awesome but if Guy was on Honda's i am sure he would have won a TT. Well done to Johnson tho a fellow Lincs lad he deserved a win. As John Larder above this says a true ambassador for the sport should be more people like him. I,d like to see any of you people that bring him down complete a lap of the tt at an average of around 130mph. Like my mother always said if you don't have nothing to say then say nothing.
Best of luck for next year Cheif if anybody deserves a win its you. And all the no

what day do you intend making an intelligent educated comment Ringo. you jealous of Guys talent as a rider personality and mechanic,Ive seen em all Bob Mac ,Hailwood, Hocking, Agostini,Dunlop and the list goes on. respect them all for you just as i am a mere mortal and not there to judge men of talent Guy included.Ask yourself the question could you do what they do at that level. No insult intended
