Your thread bring back happy memories for me.I go to the TT every year and am lucky to have a friend who is Manx resident and race Marshall.
He has many friends who are farmers and always finds us a great place to watch from.
The sight and sound of the super twins passing by flat stick about 3 feet away was awesome.I did not own my V at the time but I am SURE the memory stuck in my subconscious and was part of my reason for buying the V,no illusions of being a racer,3 of Ryan Farquar prepared bikes filled the podium,he was riding one but was considering retiring to prepare race bikes only.This decision was prematurely forced on him when sadly his uncle was killed in another race after the TT.
I remember reading somewhere one of the race bikes was prepared with an engine from a crashed Versys !!
