Yeah good point ... it was described as the best race since Catalunya 07 ( touted as a possible best race ever). But I think PI 17 was better.

Catalunya 09 was better than 07.

Well, let's see who is playing nanny:





You registered your disapproval of this thread, that is, you try to 'control' the content of the forum, that's what nannies do genius.




Actually Kesh, I was late to this thread but I did notice some others pointing out an attempt to derail the thread and the side conversation about it. Pye replied to you expressing that Synn had yet not abused anybody and expressed hope for the thread, Mdub pointed out a tally of trolling attempt highlighting the fact Synn had not overreacted, Gaz and MikeM acknowledged that the thread is legit until it's not, so no, I'm not the only one "bitching" about it. I'm holding you accountable Kesh, the onus is on you, not only did you pledge but you said you finally discovered the ignore! I'm not gonna let you just troll a thread and let it slide when you're the only one making promises. You said you were going to ignore 'your' trolls, you're doing a piss poor job of it given post #5 was a trolling attempt, and off topic I might add. Take responsibility, say something like, my bad, shit you could have deleted the post since it was out of place. You're the one making pledges and promises. The thread is about great performances, so you don't need to express your disapproval.



Now let's move on. Talk about some great performances, can we do that? We don't need your permission. You know any great performances people can talk about? Add one instead of poo pooing the thread immediately as you did. Give this place a chance!

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
Seems to me you are trying to derail it as well, this is about racing not who you don't like, so please bottle it.

To be fair those Nortons used to rule the British national championship in the 90s, much faster than anything else.

True but that white one which Hizzy rode was a last minute deal and prior to the TT all Hislop had done on it was a test at Oulton Park where it blew up after 6 laps and apparently they were an absolute pig to ride and just wanted to wheelie everywhere.

I do remember the Duckhams bikes that Ian Simmo and Phil Borley rode in 1994 but those bikes weren't official Nortons they were Rotons that had been developed by Brian Crighton after he split from Norton in 1990. The official Norton factory team folded in 1992.

I saw them a few times when my mate was racing privateer class. They sounded awesome and the 750s just were blown away by the extra speed of them. Met Ian Simpson and Edwards Slighty etc at Brands.

Yeah Josh Brookes raced one at the Classic TT last year and it just howls, I know the straight line speed of them was mad at the time, at the 1990 North West 200 they were going through the speed trap 15mph faster than the works Hondas.

Simmo's a cracking bloke, amazing to think he managed to win 6 British Championships, 3 TT's and 5 NW200's despite breaking his legs 4 times and having to retire aged 30, probably the best rider Britian had who didn't get a chance on the world stage.
