classic tt / manx gp



well, a year gone already and it's time for the classic tt / manx gp again, i booked the ferry and dig's last november,[ not that i'm obsessed or anything...] it's just something i have to do, it's not just about that fabled 37 and two bits of tarmac that make up the legendary tt course, it's the whole feeling that you get on this little island in the middle of the irish sea, just the stuff of legends, so much glory and for some, so much heartbreak, if you have any leaning towards the two-wheeled life it's just essential to do it. this year i'm taking two bikes, 'peaky blinder' is already there, courtesy of chalky who has hitched it to his trailer along with his triumph, so i can ride at the festival of jurby next sunday, [and hopefully have a couple of 'brisk' laps of the tt course too!] i'm riding over on the hyper-retard along with dangerous on the scramber tomorrow, we are up at stupid 'o clock friday to make the journey up to liverpool for the ferry, the weather is not looking good and more importantly for me, the crossing looks like it may be a tad 'entertaining' [sorry, i'm no sailor me, give me high, fast roller coasters - no problem, but, bloody boats, i could spew on a duck pond me...] oh well, at least the sea gulls should get some breakfast! so, that's it then, no posts for a week, like cilla used to say ta-ra chuck.......
