Still a bit misty this morning
So much to do today what with the Ramsey Sprint, the Douglas Beach Races and a variety of Owners Clubs Rallies at such places as Laxey, Port St. Mary and Crosby. Don't say "There's nothing to do !".
I had a run round but was frustrated by the fact that an accident has blocked off the course near Ballaugh so rather than detour I returned to Douglas and managed to change my ferry ticket from Heysham to Liverpool with rather unexpected ease I might add.
Okells ales drew me to the Hilton but before I got to the bar, I was able to sit in with SUZUKI GB who were having a meeting about the GSXR Series and, separately, Suzuki accessories and add-ons. The panel consisted of a number of Japanese, one of whom was "the father of the Hyabusa", and a few local reps and dealers.
Facing them were a group of GSXR owners who discussed the many pros and one or two cons, and then they put forward a number of recommendations....
It was a most constructive meeting which brought out that once a dealer has sold a bike he sits back in relief, and fails to promote the accessories.
By this time Sammy had landed (in an aeroplane) so I had my daily Okells and ended up on 3FM discussing the TT. I met George Ferguson again after a couple of years gap....you do look well George ! I was interviewed by Matt and I was told to listen in for my Geordie-accented Ramblings very soon.
Tonight is the Beach Races....I intend to have dinner in the Hilton with Sammy snatching some furtive glances at the racing through the open window as we chat..
