Yeah I don't know whether you feel the same but John seems very uncertain about something, usually he's quite confident in himself without appearing brash or arrogant, but recent interviews since the cage removal seem to have a tint of uncertainty.

I've also seen news that Guy Martin will be returning to road racing at Cookstown and Tandragee racing a BSA Rocket 3 in the Classic category.

Yeah I wasn't to sure myself but you've confirmed the way I was thinking. I'd say that when he gets on it if he doesn't feel comfortable its time to hang up those leathers, I feel the little man in his head is telling him what to do already. Very sad but he's a great bloke and better alive than dead.

Woweee I'll go hunt that news down about Guy.

Agreed. I'll go as far as saying even if he had hung up his leathers after his crash, there would have been absolutely no shame. What he's achieved on the TT is legendary.

I lost 2 of my best mates in racing and one of them told me, this is my last race as his wife was pregnant and he didn't want to not be there. I was gutted after, his wife lives down the road from me and his daughter is now 24 and a bike nut I showed her my collection of scars and pics of the plates that hold a significant part of me together, all she did was shrug.

As Michaels book is subtitled "It's in the blood" he won the very race his dad was killed qualifying for less than 48 hours earlier.

The difference being she never knew her dad, she hasn't even got pictures of him racing.
