This video of the first TT run is now in 4 parts on youtube- just search lec iom 2007
I'm not an expert with this tech yet so wasn't really sure what I was doing. All four parts are there somewhere.

Brings Back some very happy memories. Time to buy another Elan I think but this time shop very carefully and not buy an utter shed.
Currently Elan-less and on the lookout for a good one.

Having been at this years TT and having to return home because it was washed out and with ferries cancelled, you would not want to be in an Elan. I stayed in a hotel but felt so sad for the hundreds of campers who just had no where to go. Thankfully many of the locals let them crash on sofas etc.
Did meet Hutchy ten minutes after his first win though :D

I see your point, guess you're a spurs fan...
I have a season ticket so I'll be there!

What about the weekend of the 23rd or is there not really any interest in planning a trip over?
I've not been before so I wouldn't have a clue where to visit/stay.

I happened to mention this in front of my car last night and it gave out a little whimper, think it might have been taken on the last trip by the previous owner and suffered somewhat, Turbo issues or something ??
I haven't been to the IOM before so might be something interesting to do if it goes ahead, would all depend on dates etc

Perfect conditions for a bit of fettling :bowdown: Apparently I still owe you a number of bolts though ?
