    1) The superbikes at Ballaugh are spectacular

    2) Ballacrye is sooooo fast

    3) Bruce Anstey’s RCV sounds mean

    4) The Norton sounds better

    5) The Suter smells so, so good…but the sound was slightly underwhelming

    6) Cam Donald’s best days may be behind him

    7) The Irish can spend all day talking to you about how flat and smooth the road surface is

    8) It’s illegal to overtake in double whites on the Mountain, even when the traffic is one way. Sorry officer.

    9) Graham Hill and Jimmy Hill are brothers. Possibly. Then again…

    10) The peanut butter cheesecake at the Forge in Santon is to die for

    11) NEVER try and do a Michael Jackson joke

    12) It takes three women to make tea at the WI in Ballaugh…Caroline pours it, Jennifer stirs, and Gladys adds the milk. Tastes mighty fine too

    13) Fastest I saw on the clocks on the Mountain was 143…and didn’t get overtaken either

    14) Johnny Foreigner still loves a random over (and under) take

    15) The flies seem bigger this year
