Fifth Practice - Cancelled

The weather's been shitty the whole day. Pissin' down at the moment. Practice has been cancelled. The bikes are all prepped but will have to wait till tomorrow to stretch their legs.

It's on days like this that I'm soooo glad I've rented a house. Three years ago I was camped out in the paddock with a river running through the middle of my awning. Two and a half weeks living in a tent in the a quagmire of a paddock in the Isle of Man weather sucks... big-time.

Good home-cooked food, warm, dry and a telly with TT and other bikey DVDs. Got a dry garage with a hard floor to work on the bikes. Sure as hell beats the mud of the paddock!

So... tonight I bring you some cool pics from local pro protographer Dave Kneen. Enjoy...
