@ the troll using different names to post the same comment.....

Answer me this then, hypocrisy in this instance, is to put yourself in a situation that would endanger other's without ever having been in the situation yourself? By definition that is hypocrisy.
Being that Farquahr is the most successful road racer ever, I would suggest hypocrisy perhaps should be used for Paul Bird, or Buckmaster, or even Palmer and MSV for putting on BSB or the organisers, but then without them we would have no teams or racing.
But NOT for an ex racer determined to keep the dream of kids like he once was alive, by emparting unbridled knowledge, producing a winning machine and dissappearing into the background with a wry smile when they do.......Just sayin...

@ snell. It's not getting personal. It's a matter of opinion and interpretation. Would be no good if we all had the same views. If we did then everything on the planet would be the same.

i have no interest in getting involved in a slanging match...

but having been given the gift of watching farqy race over the years and also single handedly push the new and wonderful supertwins class for all aswell as supporting irish road racing as much as if not more than many others i for one am over the moon that he is intent on continuing in some sort of racing..to impart his vast experience and wonderful enthusiasm for the sport we love..we need more chaps like farqy to stay involved for our sport to prosper!

And i'll be cheering the boys in orange all the way!

How can anybody say Farquhar is a hypocrite ? ( incidentally , its spelled with an e ) . He won 199 races , goodness only knows how many he competed in. Who said " he will put others on his bikes but wont ride them himself ".His uncle died riding one of his bikes . He has RETIRED and is entitled to retire WHEN he wants. As somebody else said lots of the armchair bikers on this forum probably don't even have a bike. He is respected greatly by all his competitors. Michael Dunlop said racing won't be the same without Ryan Farquhar. Whoever called R Farquhar a "hypocrit " is an armchair bulls**tter

It was a privilege to watch Farquhar during Manx GP 2012 from the marshal's station inside Westwood during evening practice and then from Douglas Road corner on his last ever ride. This was a master at work - smooth as silk yet devastatingly fast. Good luck to him in all that he does, he will have more success and truly deserves it.

Ryan Farquhar,s retirement has been on the cards for a while now, i think what happened was the push he needed to make his mind up. Be happy we had all the years of pleasure watching Ryan race, he has a young family and he must put them FIRST...so i say good luck to him and his team.

Ryan has given so much to the sport and deserves every bit of success he has achieved as a rider, and look how well Jamie Hamilton has done since joining Ryan's KMR team. Now he has entered a new chapter I wish him all the success possible and hope to see Team KMR on the grid for a long time yet.

As for the hypocrites on here, you talk about him putting another rider/s into the 'firing line'. Going by that argument then what about Neil Tuxworth or Rob McElnea or example?.
