Great story and pikkies Roger. Looked like Jumkie is a great host and took a lot of effort to give you a great time.

I have to admit that I am very curious/ bemused about your change in attitude towards Casey. Is it because of that meeting or because up close at the track you could see how fast he is........or just a bit of everything. Please indulge me ...............
Cheers, bunny

ive never said i hate casey, you lot assumed that. i just said i dont like the tantrums . but sure going to a race like this does tend to remind you of there skill than just seeing it on tv plus getting to actually ride the corkscrew highlights what nutters these racers are.
i watched in awe casey and vale battled and had massive respect for both of them. i was rather saddened on my return when i watched the bbc's coverage and heard what stoner had to say in the parc perme interview, but as i said im going to ignore that.

and jumkie was a great host, hopefully he may take the trip over the pond and let me take him to donny or i.o.m tt

I'm sure Roger will elaborate. But in a nut shell, you see that these guys are real humans. From afar we see they are professionals and super talented at their craft. We admire their abilities. The thing is, most everything we know about these riders is through what is on TV or what is written, and of course what fans say about them (which sometimes does more harm than good, as I have learned). They become almost like an intangible abstract entity. Ah, but when you meet them face to face, you see they are as human as you. At that points its just two guys with similar interest in motorcycle racing, us the spectator, and they the professional racers we admire. Its an amazing impression.
