OK, I just got off the horn with the Isle of Man folks, and they assured me that I would NOT be on the menu at the banquet. Instead they'll be serving a Manx delicacy called "Soylent Green."



I am SO relieved.

Note: new handle - subscription expired just as I went to reply.



I found that, too, so I took off the stock clip ons and put on some helibars. It doesn't look as cafe as is used to, but I'm considerably more comfortable. The knees didn't bother me so much, which is weird because I've got all kinds of knee injuries in the past.



T100 is a great bike, though. I'm thinking of getting one and outfitting it as a tourer with the larger TX tank from Norman Hyde.

Well my GPTB list includes: H-D Lowrider, Ducati ST4, H-D Electra Glide, MV Agusta Brutale.



So I think you've got me beat but longride is right on your heels for sure.



I exchange my girlfriends with about the same frequency you exchange motorcycles though.

Well to be fair i didn't have the Beemers for long so they shouldn't REALLY be counted, but I did legally own them so they're on the list.



Longride should change his name to Honest George's Motorcycle Supply.....The guys garage must be big as my house..

They're more dead than the guys they didn't mention that crashed but didn't die because they had helmets on though.

"Is there a more fatalistic sporting event in the world than IOM?"



Nope. That's what makes it so beautiful. It's an anachronism in our pussified, nanny-state Volvo age.
