Roy Mooreisms
I love listening to Roy's commentary from Randy Hairpin, here's hoping we get a few more gems from him.
It's a shame we lost the thread from the old site, but a couple that I remember  "just listen to the Italian national anthem" when Gary Johnson went through on the MV. and from the Southern "they should just about to be in Maurice's s#1te by now"

RE: Roy Mooreisms
I confess to having been responsible for starting the Roy Moorisms thread on the vanished site.  
I'll try to link to that archive here so that, hopefully, Roy Moore fans can refresh the memories and post some new quotes from the master.  Icon_biggrin

Roy Moore
Roy came out with quite possibly his best of all time during the electric bikes:

"And Guy Martin is through, still holding on to that 14 second disadvantage..."

RE: Roy Mooreisms
Cant quote him exactly but does anyone else remember during one of the races he spoke about the farm animals thinking they where going for a day out but they where actually going to the slaughter house. Did make me chuckle to myself

I Think that was on Monday the 8th in the pre-race introduction story telling, "Going for a little trip"... "Turns left at Tromode, an might be in a burger by Friday".

RE: Roy Mooreisms
Today they played a clip from the 1964 Southern 100 it wasn't Roy commentating, but there was the classic line " sometimes you push and push and nothing happens" from the days before clutch starts but could easily be taken in another context.

RE: Roy Mooreisms
I've just heard a classic one from Roy, I'm currently listening to the pre TT classic races and he said "if it wasn't so cold it would be a wee bit warmer"

RE: Roy Mooreisms
he seems to have it a dim view of one particular Pre-TT Classic competitor. I wonder what 'effin' Owen's real Christian name is?

RE: Roy Mooreisms
+1 on the French Lessons

I take it that the mention of John McGuinness was a Roy memory to fill 'dead air' as they say in radio speak that got interrupted as the bikes approached. I guess the Paton made Roy think of JM as I've never remembered him to do the Southern Races and a quick search of southern100.com found no results.

"Thoughts of John McGuinness at the ah... ep a there's only one rider here"

then

"Well John McGuinness took the win in the Classic TT, the 500"


another one found in the 850cc Classic

Bill Swallow in the lead with his distinctive black leathers,

"He's not letting advertising encroach on his riding style"
