    Yeah, shed's nice. Do they hire out bays during the race periods ? Always been hard to find good workshop space I hear.

    The practise bike is a rehearsal for when you get your hands on the race one, LOl. The same list will be your start point for that.
    Be interesting to hear the diffence in setup from as received Donington to IOM road settings....

    Does the race bike have a big tank ? Is that legal under the SS rules ?

    The workbays are for the bikes they own, i counted 30 in one room. Id guess he would let people use them & also leave the shirt off his back lying around for you to use as well.
    The GSXR has around a 17 litre tank, were working on 12 per lap which means no flying laps on saturday as each lap will be a refuel.
    The bike being used for the TT will have a two lap tank so i guess it must be legal.
    Re the list, it wasnt stuff that needed altering for TT practice, mainly it was things that wern't up to the standard of assembly required to go for a 37 mile hoon at full noise.

    I fancied having a go at the TT as a young fella but hell ,glad I didn't.
    Dave Hiscock learnt the road in 3 or 4 sections I think he said ? He did great first time.
    He offered me to go with him in I think 1981,but by then I had a Police career and 3 kids. He took Bill Biber as spanner man.

    I think some people spend a life time learning the road.
    I hope young Jay keeps a bit in reserve,good luck.

    You'd never go hungry with Nigella Gaz.
    If it weren't for flashbacks...I'd have no memory at all..

    Hopefully the climbing and preparation pays off with a safe swift ride.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?
