TT2012 pics

As promised, here are some pics from the TT.

We were at the Creg for Race Day 1, Braddan Bridge and Ballaugh Bridge for day 2, and the Manx Government tent on day 3. Day 4 was a wash out on Friday.

I have loads more pictures and will upload if you lot fancy seeing some more.

Michael Dunlop's knee puck is my favourite......

Indeed, stay tuned for famous old bloke pics...

BTW, Michael Dunlop's technique over Ballaugh bridge is nose first as it McGuinness' as they are afraid to break a chain if they land on the rear wheel. Michael was fine and went on to win SS race 1. He is the future for road racing. You can tell he is trying just that much harder.

A few more......

More pics.......

Had to throw in the 2 dolly birds. I shagged both of them by the way. At the same time.

Definitely worth the trip and spending extra dosh for the VIP tent. How many times will you do it if you live stateside???

Milky Quaye, Michael Rutter, John McGuinness and Steve Plater are all top blokes. They had time for a chat and an autograph.

Randy Mamola is a bit intense, but Kevin Schwantz and Neil Hodgson were just nice lads.

If you have any interest in going, just do what it takes and pull the trigger. These pics do not do the experience any justice.

More tomorrow if you like.......

I did get to speak to him for a couple of minutes. First of all, he is a stunning looking man.

He is really laid back and humble. He seems to like a laugh and a joke, but is dead serious about his craft.
