Agree with pete Davies here. Respect to amor but what has he a thallus achieved at the TT to warrant being a legend? How many wins did he achieve? Jonny mac, legend, DJ, legend, hailwood, legend. Joey Dunlop, legend. Amor is not a tt legend in any shape or form. Much respect, however, for even attempting the TT but attempting it does not automatically make one a legend.

a greatly over rated rider indeed,how in he11 he got those good honda rides is beyond me,maybe being reas buddy helped,martin, dunlop,cummins et al,would have gone close to winning tt with bikes like that,suppose he got fed up with ryan 77 beating him up in ireland week in week out also,yep fast tracked into works honda team,did not deliver on his spouting,and fast tracked to oblivian,and no big tt wins

One of the coolest guys in road racing - we were cheering you on at the Creg last June, and you will be sadly missed this year.

Good luck mate, enjoy your retirement in beatiful Cyprus!

Very sad news indeed coming off the back of such a successful season in 2011.

All the best for the future to you and your family Keith.

Has Cameron Donald resigned with Wilson Craig? I know he was third rider in the WEC for TT Legends last year so must be a prime candidate.

@ Kyle. The name was chosen to depict the fact that tt legends were to ride in the team. In world endurance. Swan are a brand who sponsor the smr team. TT legends is not a brand or business, is it? Do TT legends sponsor Honda, no.

@yamapimp off course legends dont sponsor the time but none ride for it either by definition no alive is a legend. Jealousy doesnt suit you everytime a story about keith appears you attack him yet you dont with plater mcguinness or donald. Is it an anti scottish thing or whats your actual problem
