TT claims it first 2008 victim (non race related)

Hardly surprising. I don't think i've seen anything as scarilly irresponsible, thoughtless and downright retarded as the general riding standards on the island in TT week last year.

It's a 40 mile course, you're never going to find a 'live' feed, especially of time trials. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

Is there a reason he left HM Plant?

Or did they pull out of the TT?

Honda officially quit, thats why Hutchinson is on Yamaha and John on Padgets. The bike is apparently pretty much factory (as is Martin's) and well prepared, but i'd like to know if the mechanical problems on Saturday were related.

Isn't Guy on a Hydrex? I would have thought the machines would differ if that was the case.

Tuxworth overseas the whole lot and i believe the parts and kit will be fundamentally the same but it will be built and setup by a different group, some minor parts will be manufactured in house so will probably differ.
