RE: Who, What, Where, When?
It's not Crosby - think back to places where we were allowed to stand/sit and now we're not.........not Nick but there is a nice side-story involving Mr Splashdown when my mate won the Senior MGP, give you another clue - he won the Senior MGP on a TZ350

That looks like Dave Ashton and I'll have a guess at Ballacrye as the location.

I reversed engineered this one - Gordon Farmer? Can’t say I know anything about him but if nothing else, nice to be able to educate myself on another mountain course star regardless.

Excellent work Ian - it is indeed Gordon Farmer, the machine is pretty special if you fancy digging around for info....Gordie won the 1982 Senior MGP on a TZ350(some results state Suzuki for some reason) and crossed the line with literally no fuel left and apparently there was a possibility of a protest - Gordie still speaks very well of Nick Splashdown who was 3rd and having none of the protest thing telling the officials that Gordie had won it fair n square..

Thank you. It’s nice to hear all these back stories. You page thru results etc and it doesn’t even scratch the surface of someone’s career.

Thanks Ian - no probs. This is the fab machine Bonhams : The ex-works, NCR, Sports Motor Cycles, Roger Nicholls, Isle of Man TT Formula 1,1977 Ducati 905cc Production Racing Motorcycle Frame no. 014 read through and you'll see Gordie mentioned.

No prizes for guessing who so all I need to know is where is it?

Don't have the answers I'm afraid but throwing it out to the collective wisdom hoping to find out where.

My best guess is somewhere around Greeba bridge?

I'm with you on the dip past Barregarow, taken from the top of the wall by the cottage.
