    Thanks for that link the wind/weather is bloody terrible out by the sea lookin at the flags!
    On a Motorcycle you're penetrating distance, right along with the machine!! In a car you're just a spectator, the windshields like a TV!!

    Bruce is entered, just not in top 10 on day one. Give him a day or so to find his feet and he will be up there.

    4th

    Bruce 4th in last nights (our time) supersport. It seems they're showing the video feed globally. So you can watch without a UK IP address.

    Sweet, that's Saturday night sorted.
    Do us all a favour, by bringing yourself up to speed, before pulling onto the motorway.

    I had a caravan in Portrush for a few years and I worked for the Uni at the Coleraine campus for a while, for some reason this was always my favourite time of year to be at the van or even at "work" :-)

    British Superbike Championship star Shane 'Shakey' Byrne is enjoying a first visit to the North West 200 and says he is "blown away" by the speeds achieved by the competitors.

    "Total respect to the boys but I will stick to short circuits. I once did a parade lap at the Isle of Man TT in 2003 and I frightened myself to death," added the 38-year-old.
    The difference between road racing and all the rest I suppose.

    Racing starts 9.30 our time. Hopefully the live coverage springs to life then. Doesn't seem to be on yet.

    Of course they're probably only sitting round drinking tea at the moment.

    Its not as bad as the flags make it look. Standing at Juniper Hil in T shirt & jeans. Quite warm with a mild breeze.
    Hickman seems to be the man to beat.

    Hicky failed to turn in a hot lap for 2nd superbike qual & parked up at Juniper chicane just down from me & toured back at the end of the session. Thats going to put him at the back of the superbike grid.
    Lee Johnson won supersport tonight & Peter Hickman cleared off for around a 3sec win in Superstock.

    They add the two days qualifying times together & halve it to get the time, so hes screwed.
