      Was a great result for Tom Sykes a maiden double on home turf on the Kwaker,used to watch Tom on Suzuki in the BSB series brings him just for points away from the championship lead still a lot to ride through.My Racing was back in the the late seventies in a small amateur series
      On RD400 Yams.Truth was never made sponsorship and then enjoyed watching and touring,my Touring across Europe and Scandinavia
      Was my passion.my last track event was in 2010 a track day at Silverstone on the Kwaker 1200 great day but expensive with tyres they
      Just melt away.
      Hi Roy, RD400s !!!!!!! I saw them at Oulton Park, seriously fast and close racing, a bit leary. Bravery award.

        Isle of Man sidecar race tonight was really good. I never used to follow the sidecar racing or pay interest in it, but the coverage on ITV4 was really good and a good race to watch. On a negative note one of the TT riders had a very serious accident. The modern bikes which can average 130 mph (so reaching 200 mph at times ) on a normal road 37 mile circuit with lamposts, walls, curbs, houses and trees to crash into is extremely dangerous.

                  Hi Bikers,

                  Well another disaster for the Doc , a stupid arrogant mistake by the young reckless one and sheer brilliance shown by the winner riding perfection. And to say Cal did good would be a understatement , all in all a great race, but doubt the Italians had the same views ?. Danny no doubt sighed a lot thinking how lucky he is to have a really considerate teammate ,I think Honda may be having words ,very deep meaning full ones with the youngster having lost a podium place for nothing gained .

                    Hi Pete,

                    yes Marquez crashed on every outing on this circuit, his earlier high speed crash probably didn't help, he was very lucky he wasn't seriously hurt. I think it's his relative inexperience. Cal was brilliant. I think it was Bautista's fault taking out Rossi, the Rossi fans will probably give him a hard time now. Carol

                      Rossi having tough time hope he doesn't quit, would be very bad news for Moto GP. Cal seems to of matured a great ride from
                      a guy with painful injuries,young Bradley Smith another very brave race too.be interesting to see if Scott Reading gets a factory ride
                      In motor GP 1. Next year

                        Hi Carol

                        Hope your ok, Yes don't get to see most races ,but I did really enjoy this one . I was wishing for Rossi along with a few thousand Italians that he would do well, but alas it was not to be , But I really enjoyed watching .how it should be done by a pro. Well done our Cal despite his crashes still finds it in him to do well when it matters ,looking forward to the next one now .

                          Good TT coverage on ITV 4. Dunlop won superbike TT. Don't know what happened to my favourite Bruce Anstey, he was ill so not sure if finished. Guy Martin came fourth?? I think , total character.

                            Brilliant Dunlop but John McGuiness another lap record he has dominated for the last decade and the veteran can still dance with the best.

                                Hi Roy, Pete, Terry and all,

                                Hope you got to see the IOMTT on ITV4. There is an iPad app Isle of Man tt 2013 which I downloaded and looks good and it's free. Supersport race was fairly close. Bruce Anstey looked very ill after the race, apparently has got flu but he looked very grey. Don't know how he came second feeling like that! Hope my favourite rider is ok. Carol
