this is McGuiness' record breaking 130mph+ TT winning bike, taken only a few weeks after at Goodwood FoS, the screen was still plastered with bugs cus they didn't clean it.

insane speed. can't see that record being broken any time soon....unless of course brookes keeps it rubber side down and the 2014/15 tt weeks are dry and sunny.





wondering when mcguiness calls it a day after so many races unhurt. seems like hes doing a gobert and tries to be the fattest race winner ever lately

Cam, Mcpint and Micheal Dunlop were at Donington getting some practise and fine tuning in.

as far as talent is concerned in my mind :


circuit riders > road racers


top bsb racers > tt guys


brookes> donald


qed


no really, say what you want about brookes but he is definately a really talented rider and i'm very happy that a somewhat internationally known top championship front runner (bsb is for sure the most competitive national sbk series) takes on the challange.


will def. take him a couple of years but given his talent and ,in lack of a better word, balls i expect him to do well

Sorry, I don't concur. McPint usually has a few races in BSB but he usually runs Supersport or stock and his results are not great


The only track riders that have had decent road racing results, in this modern era, is slim. Hutchy, Rutter, Easton, Wee Wizard , is all I can think of now, but then I'm sleep deprived and had a few <strike>shandies</strike> Stellas. I watched Daytona 200 so had an earlier start


I'd give Brookes a run at the NW200. IoM TT can he handle that before jumping off his bike and causing carnage?

I am so getting McPints moniker on the photo. McPint and Ken Block at the Ace Cafe on Friday.


Cliche, I had thought about taking you to the Ace if there isn't anything on in town GP week. You would be at home there, I've chatted with several Germans outside

thanks man, the problem is that a wedding might stand in the way of silvers so i'll most likely have to leave thursday before the race


thats why i decided to definately go to donington if theres only a 50/50 chance to make it to the gp.
