Well ridden john age and weight beaten by skill and experience nice to see stay safe top man.
He says in this report " theres no substitute for track time"

re: "Is he looking a bit porkie to to you?"

no worries, being bigger isn't quite the disadvantage around the island that it is on short circuits. McG (and anyone who fancies themselves a suspension tech) can thank the late jeffries for this revelation. the lighter the sprung weight of the bike/rider combo the less margin for error in set-up on the roads. so if there was ever a motorcycle context to where being built like a lumberjack had a benefit, the isle'd be it. :D
