There used to be a great onboard video of a lap by TT expert Nigel 'Cap' Davies, from Llanelli. The producers dubbed his commentary onto the vid. Interesting to hear the rider's take on it, stuff like "This section here, I just go as fast as I can"

I went to my first TT in 1n 1972.......

Peter Williams on an Arter Matchless was still beating the Japs !

Truly an art-form when they get get it right ,
but oh so easy to get it wrong

I remember reading in Foggys book a few years ago that in certain places he'd ride the curb like a wall of death.

Bonkers.

I went to watch a couple of times years ago and it's one of those things I plan to do again one day.

Twas an annual pilgrimage of mine until a few years ago, but then I sold the bike, as I wasn't using the RIB enough. Wasn't using the bike much either....
