Hi koala27 I am glad that you got the information you required for all your pictures from the above mentioned forum members,I really enjoyed looking at them all in these strange times.

Hopefully you will return to the Isle of Man TT in the coming years or even as soon as next year??.

Best wishes.

RE: Koalas 1984 TT retrospective
Many thanks Koalas, brought back a load of memories and got me thinking that I should dig out all my old slides from TT's through the '60s.
You may imagine my disgust when I opened the boxes they were stored in ro find they were all ruined by damp when furniture was put in store a few years ago during in our last house move.
Real classics with the MV, Honda, Yamaha, MZ, and Norton works bikes going back into the late '50s.

One of my favourites was taken in the paddock early one morning which was of Mike Hailwood getting out of a Mercedes drop top, a long camel duffle coat over his leathers. As he walked by us he gave a very bleary eyed smile and a nod.
Watched him swing a leg over the 350 MV for a lap at just over 100mph, and then another lap on the 500, also at over 100 and on his way back to his car we caught another bleary eyed smile and "It's bloody cold out there!".

I'm gutted.
If at first you don't succeed, avoid skydiving.
