    I hope John does make a come back.
    I missed that it was Robert and not Michael that got hurt. Thanks.

    yeah, most of the legends and stalwarts seem to be experiencing difficulties, as of late. It certainly changes the competition. I think Gator's call on Hutch is a good one.

    Hickman certainly has the bit between his teeth now, always liked the guy and his riding style, the manoeuvre at the chicane at the NW200 was cheeky at least, but he got the win and nobody came off

    Not impressed with Jodie Kidd as a TV presenter, still better than that twat Doyle .... Michael Dunlop had him sized up in 2015 "It must hurt to ride after yesterday's crash?" ..... "How the fuck would you know, you can't even ride a motorbike"

    LMAO , Michael must be hanging out with McGuiness. I have heard some great one liners from John through the years.

    Michele Pirro's crash was horrific, and getting knocked unconscious may have actually saved him further damage.

    And Dovi; 221+ MPH? Crazy!

    Dean Harrison on the Kawasaki posted fastest lap so far 133.28, unofficially breaking Michael Dunlops record, Dean said there's more to come, which given he's been consistently getting quicker every day is totally believable

    When Hutchy was told, he just shook his head, he's over there but he doesn't look well, putting on a brave face but I feel his year was 2010 and the next wave is just too quick for him

    Derek Shiels, the Irish road race demon has got a ride, he's got a lot of learning to do to catch the others up, he's a quick learner tho' good luck to him

    I'm just watching the Superbike race 1 on IOM TT live, see if you can sign up for FREE at iomtt.com

    Meanwhile things don't look good for Shakey Byrne after a crash whilst testing his Panigale broke vertebrae in his neck, unless the bones join back together he's going to have to give up racing

    He's in this frame for the next 3-4 months

    Marticus - watch the TT and get results etc from iomtt.com

    Sign up and you can watch it live

    If you go through the practice times you'll find the Suter there, if it's on the Island this year, not heard anything about it, so don't know

    Thanks thumbs, I did sign up last night but the page is always blank. Maybe I need to do it on desktop instead of cell phone? I see a spot for lap times but no live video

    So I've got a VPN connection now, and it thinks I'm a good Brit but I still haven't figured out how to watch anything. Apparently I can catch the highlights on channel 4 during British mor. I gs and evenings for an hour..

    It's not channel 4 mate, it's ITV 4, 9-10 each evening

    Available on demand too

    The IOM website works on my iPad but maybe not a phone

    Okay just got home 12 hr day, turned on MotoGP and what do I hear before the race even starts
    Talks with Rae to go to MotoGP Honda taking Pedrosa’s spot and MM as a teammate WOW!
    What a shake up that will be in WSBK.
    No mention in the past that they weren’t going to renew Perdobots contact, wonder where he’s going to go?

    It looks like negotiations have been going on for a while with Rea. Very interesting.
