I thought this guy got killed a year or two later? maybe not, I guess it was John, I would have to go back 5 or 6 years to review, I would love to go do this b4 I pass, but prolly wont happen, some guys live there whole life around this thing called the IOM

I've been fascinated by the IOMTT since i started reading about it and watching races when i was a teenager. Watching that race live is one of the very few things I aboslutely KNOW I'll go see before i die. . . Amazing level of talent on display at the IOMTT every year and in every class IMO

My bad,
your thinking of big David Jeffries I reckon,
V&M Yamaha R1 and then just about unbeatable on the TAS Suzuki GSXR1000.
Killed at the IOM when he hit the debris left by another accident just in front of him that he had no warning of RIP Big Dave

He brought a telegraph pole down and Jim Moodie the next rider along just about garrotted (spelling) himself.
