  1. Just feel it would be right to go leaving us wanting ,PK was one of all time favourites but he timed his departure from the sport to perfection Scotty could do the same .
  2. Possible a perfect time to hang up his boots as well just as PK did a few years ago ,great servant to the sport and a shoe in for full time presenter/pundit with KT .

    Bart is sheer Box Office everytime he races you just hope he misses the gate IMO if he were to win the" triple "it would be amazing I never thought it would be done again .I used to watch the GP 's on my own but particularly this year the rest of the family( my son never watched it on tv before) watch Bart's races and have become more interested in the sport in general ,isn't that just what's needed .

    Is Emil Right In What He Says?

    It is also true that even if you have loads of power rider still needs to know how to use it and often there has to be compromise for starting or flat out speed .I hate the term throttle Jockey because no matter what level of rider we are talking about a certain amount of skill and a huge amount nerve is required to ride a s/way bike flat out . At this moment it time the greatest exponent of this is Zmarzlik , as to handicapping IMO it is not his fault he weighs about 6 stone soaking wet .

    Is Emil Right In What He Says?

    Pre 4 valve engines we had a 2 valve Jawa from new which was just that bit quicker than any of our other engines ,the only thing we found was the cam lobes were possible slightly different from the rest . That engine broke many track records ( the old NL) it was a special engine like any item that is mass produced such as cars the odd one is some how better than others . In this age of rocket engine demand, there's bound to be the odd special one but I do concede that what goes on in a rider's head plays huge part as well .

    Plantar Fasciitis

    Sit on the bottom step of a set of stairs and keep your legs as straight as possible ,then pull one foot at a time to stretch the achilles (gently and hold for 15 seconds twice) .
  14. John Jackson in the mid 70's broke/held track records in the old NL on a regular basics

    Notoriously Dirty Riders

    It seems to me some riders coming to the end of their career's fall for no good reason ,one that springs to mind was PK in his last season he did it a few times ,when he was one of the safest neat riders I have ever watched .
