Life's Not by Numbers

... but life isn't measured by numbers. It's just so much goddamn fun hooning around the best race track in the world as fast as you can.

ManxGP 2013 entries are now out... I'm gonna go back in August and give it another go. Same bikes, same goal. Might change the plan a bit... Always change a losing strategy.

Manx by Numbers

Been doing a few numbers on my ManxGPs...

Campaigns: 6 (2005, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012)
Races/Classes entered: 11
Starts: 9
Finishes: 6
Replicas: 2
Total Laps: 89
Fastest lap: 108mph (2006 & 2010)
Best Finish: 17th - Ultra-lightweight 2010 (not counting 12th in Newcomers race)

Christ! When I consider the time, effort, hassle, ball-aches, cash, pain, blood, sweat and tears... these meagre pickings hardly seem worth it. I must be fuckin' nuts to want to go back...

Fighter Jet Fly-by

Not quite on a bike topic... but what a rush!

... the pilot 1:45 into the clip is a bit mental. Dobro! Dobro!

Cafe Racer

Saw this a few weeks ago on the Cafe Racer Culture blog.

This is close to being super-awesome. Not sure about the red/maroon paint... and the name: Full of Hate. Change those and it would be one of my favourite custom cafe racers... big Vee Twin, single-sided swing-arm, loads of carbon, some pinstriping, clean... and mean.
