yes! my first visit to the" island" was the 1978 manx gp, it did'nt get much better for a 14 year old boy watching racing on roads, drinking beer in the local hotel bar and ogling phil read rep cb750's and cbx1000's.

I think thats really cos he was no good at it. He fell off at Quaterbridge and promptly declared it too dangerous.

It is bloody dangerous but thats half the point of it.

:confused: I could never understand Bazzer. He declared the TT as too dangerous, yet he was perfectly happy to race at Olivers Mount, which was, in my eyes, just as dangerous. I saw him have some epic races against **** Grant. I feel sure that he could have been good on the Island.

Yep, and I watched him do it at Cronk-y-Voddy.


Very impressive it was too!

Absolutely beautiful riding by the guys but after going to Ireland and watching road races with 4 abreast, turning into the round abouts at 120. I think that type of racing on the village streets will always be my favorite.
I am planning a trip to the island for my bucket list. Thanks for posting.
