Post: RE: Caley's General Stores to close in March

Well said Graham Garrett: use them or lose them. Maybe not too surprising that it's having to close after Raymond Caley died, but very sad nonetheless.

Agree wholeheartedly with all the previous comments. A lovely, generous man and a well-deserved honour. People such as Harold, the late Ray Caley, John Kennaugh, Gwen Crellin and others like them are...

Post: RE: Classic TT progression

Just to support what Splashdown has said about the numbering system. If, as seems to be the case , it is for safety reasons, there already was a system in place whereby if a rider was lapping faster i...

Post: RE: 2017 TT Countdown

Another fantastic effort. Thanks Dommyman for once again starting the whole thing off but also to all who contributed. (And thanks Kilbil for the photo of the late, great John Williams).

Post: RE: Two things I miss , a few years back .

Just to echo Splashdown's comments re. numbering. Impossible now to follow who's who and their progress. And all for no safety benefit as far as I can see. It would be interesting to see how riders ha...

Completely agree with DBD 34. We shouldn't be adopting new names "willy nilly". Also agree with Splashdown (who is saying the same thing I think) that new names will ((and should) stick. The key is t...

Post: RE: John Kennaugh R.I.P.

Very sad to hear this news. For me John was as much a part of the TT as Charlie Williams was as regards the radio. A lovely man who was lovely to listen to for what he said and how he said it. I'll mi...
