Re: Your never too old

Think you might be mixing Sammy with Wheelie King Dave Taylor who did a lap (abet the front touched down a couple of times) on a modified Yamaha XT500

Last I heard the bike was on display in Jurby Junk on the Island

Re: Your never too old

Dave Taylor did a lap of Dundrod on the rear wheel at the Ulster one year. Also did a lap on his 'Superman' rig - an XS650 with a bit of scaffolding bolted on the back :)

Fuck, didn't know that, hope you have made a good recovery, its all about self preservation here, 7hr op May 5th last year, procedure in the Bons Tuesday and a bad kidney stone Easter Saturday on top of my accident in 2015, paying for my sins, bought a cam*per end of august last year, been away 120 nights since including a month long trip to Scotland & the Hebrides, got home two days b4 Lockdown , 13,300km so far, met Nodster in Balbriggan on the way home from an earlier trip, 6000w diesel heater, better than a heated vest
Stay safe young fellow...
