More Stroking ???

I.m a pusher

Spotted this guy having a hard time pushing his bike up through the wet paddock ,I helped him out making sure not to dirty my new Honda jacket,asked him if he had broken down seen as he was the only senior classic back in the paddock,turns out he was first back because he had won it,well done !!!!thanks Rob for the pic,,,,,

Muck &

As I have said before a roadrace paddock is quagmire of muck and shite and Armoy didn,t disappoint after the monsoon the rainwater washed all the muck down,,,

A Neil Smutty Robinson replica gsxr Suzuki,a fitting tribute to a great racer taken just as he was hitting real form,Fag packet paint jobs always look good especially when you top if of with the right helmet,,,,

street view

Some neat spectator bikes at the Race,love the RC30 being used as it should be,,,,


Armoy produced some of the best roadracing we have seen this year with Micheal Dunlop willing to push it hardest in the conditions to dominate the meeting,weather was unkind with us standing in the paddock in a monsoon like rainstorm that even our umbrellas could not cope with,but still the day recovered and they got through the meeting well.Here are some pics I took and more to follow ..

Real Racing Hero

This is Denis Gallagher a Scot born in Donegal in Ireland and racing since the sixties.he has recently had cancer which he has beaten and raises money for cancer research by bungee jumping amongst other things ,the amazing thing about Denis is he is 74 years old and is still getting podiums in the 350 classics at the roadraces, that's
how to live a life !!!!!!!!


Here are some pics from Armoy from the last few years to get us in the mood,maybe I should get a better camera and start going for action shots like these instead of pilfering the net !!!
