Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Super Scott
« on: 21 October 2019, 08:23:15 PM »
After taking a fair bit of stick off the media and some who should know better,Scott Redding took the BSB title in his rooky year."wait 'till he gets to Cadwell and Knockhill,Oulton Park,etc he won't know what's happening" and other such remarks,well when he did get to these places he not only didn't make a fool of himself he won and was on the rostrum at them! and when he came to curcuits he'd been,Assen,Donington etc he showed his class and won convincingly and this was on different tyres and no trick electrics,all stuff he'd have to get used to after Moto GP.A lot of people would have liked to see him come unstuck but he didn't and deserved the title,he was the best rider in the championship and I really think he'll do well in WSB. :thumbup

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Marquez the master
« on: 07 October 2019, 01:14:06 AM »
Just watched Mark Marquez take his 8th title with 4 races to spare,I've never really took to him in the past ,probably because I was a die hard Rossi fan but after todays exhibition he's gone up in my estimation,he could have settled for an easy ride ahead of Dovi and took the title but instead tracked Quatararo who was flying and risked everything for the win.I used to think he'd still got a lot to prove to be mentioned in the same breath as the great man but now I'm not so sure,I think he could actually eclipse some if not all of Rossi's achievements, 26 and 8 world titles  :eek

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Johnie's 5 timer
« on: 29 September 2019, 08:41:33 PM »
Brilliant !! Brilliant!! Brilliant!! Brilliant!! Brilliant!! the fabulous Johnie Rea took his fifth world title today,after intense pressure early season from Beautista he did what he does best and won it in style with his 12th win of the year.Lets hope he gets a bit more recognition from joe public this time for a phenominal effort. :woot :woot

General / Bitcoin Bullshit?
« on: 31 August 2019, 11:36:51 PM »
Just thought I'd ask anyone on here if they've tried Bitcoin Revolution,I read an item where Gordon Ramsey was raving about it and someone on a morning show had almost doubled there investment by the end of it !I read a bit more about it and actually started a procedure online being very careful not to pay any money and just see what happened before commiting to it,I got as far as giving my phone number which was one step before paying £250 to start this.About 2mins after I'd given my number this guy phones up saying he's my adviser andwent on about how great this investment was,the only thing that stopped me going ahead was the fact that all the places in the actual Bitcoin place were now taken but this firm or whatever it was he's working for was exactly the same and if I'd now deposit the £250 he'd start the ball rolling,I didn't particularly like the way this was turning into a hard sell,this guy was really trying hard to get my dough.I told him I'd have to think about it and he said "I'll call you back"not 5mins later he called back and was browbeating me for this money,I then told him I didn't like his attitude and the hard sell he was giving me,he then got abusive saying "what's the matter?do you need to get your wifes ok or something?I put the phone down on him but he's called back a few times but I haven't answered him because I don't really want to start telling him to fuck off and all that.Just wondered if anyone had had any joy with this because it seems to good to be true.

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Danny Kents problems
« on: 16 August 2019, 06:02:48 PM »
After being handed a lifeline with Leon Camiers MV Agusta he's now lost that ride after being given a suspended jail sentence for a knife crime,apparently he came upon his brother being held down by a bloke in a scuffle and pushed him off and a kitchen knife he had on him fell on the floor and the bloke involved in the scuffle picked it up and took it to the police who then arrested Danny for carrying it,he said he was carrying it as part of his work,but it didn't wash with the judge who gave him a suspended jail sentence.His boss of the racing team must have given him the elbow immediately,'cause Gino Rea has got his ride at Cadwell.I'm not sticking up for Danny with regards to the crime,I don't know enough about it,but when your lucks running rough it seems one thing after another,I've always rated him and hope this isn't the end of his career. :(

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Flying Hickman
« on: 08 August 2019, 05:36:10 PM »
After leaving the I.O.M. with the title of the worlds' fastest road race,Peter Hickman has now left it in the emerald isle at a blistering 136mph at the ulster GP!!! Most of us would never reach that speed let alone average it,can't get my head around it TBH. :eek

Don't know if there's anyone from over the pond on here but if so happy Independence day Y'all :lol

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / "we wuz robbed"
« on: 19 June 2019, 11:56:41 PM »
Does anyone else think we were robbed of what could have been one of the finest GP's when Lorenzo skittled the front runners? or would the relentless Marquez still have done the business? :z

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / TT washout
« on: 03 June 2019, 12:07:18 AM »
My daughter has just come back from the island,she could only get practice week off work,one day of practice and the rest rained off :( I said that in the old days they raced in all weathers and she said the reason was the helicopter would have a job trying to land if there was an accident on the mountain and there was mist down,apparently it was put to a vote some time ago and was decided to not race at all any more in the wet.I remember reading about how if it was misty on the mountain Bob Mcintyre would count the telegraph poles between bends and bank it in! "fucks sake"!you wouldn't want to miscount would you? :eek :lol

I think its great news that Danny Kent has been offered Leon Camiers MV Agusta for BSB,its already turning into one of the most competitive seasons,and once he gets the hang of things I think he will do well,you don't get a Moto 3 world title handed on a plate do you? always rated him me, just got a bit mixed up with pressure and management I think.

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Scotts threesome
« on: 27 May 2019, 11:08:40 AM »
Great to see Scott Redding do the triple,he had to do the business in BSB after comments he made about it being a step to far down the ladder before signing for Paul Bird.When you come from Moto GP people think its going to be a walk in the park in a domestic series,it just goes to show you how competitive BSB really is,and what about Fores and Barbera? really on the pace,I thought this year was going to be a bit of a damp squib with everyone following the "works" ducatis but no way! cant wait for Brands. :woot

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Scotland the brave
« on: 21 May 2019, 12:11:06 AM »
At last John Mcfee gets the win he so richly deserves,any win in Moto 3 is exceptional but that was top draw,I thought hed blue it when he slipped back to 7th but he just plugged away picking them off one by one,and these are no dummies, hard, nothing to lose youngsters who don't give a toss for anyone.Brilliant absolutely brilliant. :woot :woot

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Rossi almost there
« on: 14 April 2019, 09:41:40 PM »
Don't begrudge Alex Rins his win one bit, but how many race fans were willing "The Doctor" to win on Sunday ? it was a shame Marquez crashed out but I don't think it's a hollow victory for Rins,it don't matter how many fall off or break down at the end of the day,he won it well,nobody wins a Moto GP race easily these days. :thumbup

I wonder what the other teams are thinking when Marquez can gap the field at half a second a lap! that's really to much to accept with the current bikes and riders,I can't believe he's that much better but no one could go with him this weekend,let's just hope it's a one off or we're in for a right boring season.Great to see the doctor back in the frame though,bet Maverick wasn't to pissed off ay? ;)

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Guy's back
« on: 26 March 2019, 07:34:11 PM »
Good news about Guy Martin doing the Cookstown 100 this year,when we used to go to all the big irish races you could guarantee he'd be up there with the Dunlop boys,Ryan Farquar,Bruce Anstey,etc,etc,and the craic after was something else,especially if once in a while you went to Joeys' bar. When I was racing I sold Guys' dad a Rob North triple,this was when they wasn't a classic bike,they was well competitive, unless it was open 1000 races when the latest Yamaha TZs' would just fuck off  :lol but I remember Guys' dad being a nice bloke ,proper friendly northen type and when I seen the bike at Darley some time later it was like a different bike,absolutely mint! when I had it it was a bit rough to be honest,as long as I could get out for the next meeting I was happy.I think Guys' only doing classic races at Cookstown,funnily enough on a Rob North triple,I've often wondered if that might be my old one 'cause there can't be that many about,must try and find out.

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Amazing Alvaro
« on: 17 March 2019, 08:51:14 PM »
Wow! 6 out of 6,I am a big big fan of Johny Rea,but what a performance from Bautista! he not only won all his races,he demolished the field.You could argue he's got the perfect package from the off but even so he's not the only rider on a V4 Ducati,maybe after all there is a major difference in ability from Moto GP even down field.We'll see what happens when they come to Europe,it may be a speed differential as Rea,Lowes,etc are saying,but if it ain't we could be looking at the biggest whitewash since all the factories pulled out and left Agostini to breeze away to a few unchallenged world titles. :eek

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Who does Fenati know?
« on: 12 March 2019, 08:58:23 PM »
Talk about a slapped wrist! after what can only be described as one of the most dangerous stunts in modern day racing which could easily have caused a major injury if not worse,this twat gets off with a couple of races ban! O.K. you don't want to see a great young talent banned for life but where's the deterrent in the future? this will always be used as a precedent for anyone trying to get away with a risky manoeuvre !Defo ban for a season IMO. :thumbdown

General / 6 million memories

Don't want to start any political rants or anything just wanted to remember the jews murdered by the Nazis,including 1 million children world war 2  on this Holocaust Rememberance Day. R.I.P. :(

Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / pipe cleaner
« on: 20 February 2019, 09:42:46 PM »
I'm thinking of buying a set of stainless pipes for my gen 2,mainly because I can't stop them staining no matter what I do,do you think the stainless ones will be any easier to keep clean ?

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / R.I.P. Nigel
« on: 11 February 2019, 10:49:15 PM »
Very sad to hear of the passing of Nigel Rollason the only man to win on the isle of man on 2&3 wheels,we were a bit younger than him back in the day but he'd always have time for you,and give us passes for the big Mallory meets.nice bloke,R.I.P. NIGEL :(

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Rea's the man again !
« on: 30 January 2019, 01:19:47 AM »
Can't wait for WSB this year,what with Tom Sykes starting to click with that fabulous BMW,Alex Lowes really on the pace and the incredible,unbelievable,Johny Rea ,this year will be I think one of the best ever! Bautista will be up there from the off,Chas Davies if his back gets sorted.All the usual suspects and some fresh blood from MotoGP and Moto 2, it's got to rival the Fogarty days! Haslam will be using a fresh set of excuses for mediocre performances but once he's seen what a true maestro Johny Rea is he'll maybe quit all that bullshit and get on with being an also ran again.It won't be a walk in the park,it never is but I really think Rea will clinch another title and go on to be the greatest WSB rider ever,he's that in my eyes anyway. :woot :thumbup

A young apache brave asks for an audience with the chief "Come,sit and speak of your problems" "Thank you Geronimo,I was hoping you would explain how we got our names" "Ah,I'm often asked this question,you see it's quite simple,we name the infant with what's occurring at the time of birth,so Running Deer was named because a beautiful deer was running across the plains,and Sky Flash was named when a comet blasted across the heavens and your own brother Steel Blaze was named because the sun glinted on your fathers' tomahawk when he was born Thunder Brave when there was a violent storm,Fighting Bear who fought a grizzly bear,Stallion Breaker,after the great horse man,does this answer your question Two Dogs Shagging?"

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Rossis' last chance gone?
« on: 05 November 2018, 12:45:21 AM »
I was really pissed at Rossi going down at Sepang,I thought his winning days were over to be honest ,it would have been a great day for him especially after the brother winning his 1st moto2 race! Not to be though and I don't see him winning at Valencia but you never know. :think

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / Philip Island Gem
« on: 28 October 2018, 07:43:49 PM »
 :thumbup What a fantastic day at Philip island! right from the off with Moto 3,at one stage 6 abreast going into some corners ,through surely one of the best Moto 2 races since Mattia Pasini won in Italy,to a brilliant Moto GP which even though Vinales got away was still an unbelievable battle for 2nd,Megga,Megga,Megga.!!!

Diesels and Lawnmowers (Bike racing n things) / another class
« on: 14 October 2018, 12:15:36 AM »
Anybody think Danny Kent will do any good in BSB ?I hope so,surely you don't become world champion in a red hot class by default !I hope this is where everything finally comes together,he's still only 24 but seems to have been around for much longer.
