Everyone has to be a newcomer sometime, but there are people out here 40s a lap slower than the fast guys and some of the newcomers are pulling wheelies and waving at the crowd. It’s not right. I’m up for a bit of danger, but this is too much.
As for my bikes, they’re all getting there. We could’ve done with a bit more time on the Superstocker, but the grid position isn’t as crucial at the NW200 as it is on the short circuits. The Superbike has got some serious power. No one will have the legs on that.
I knew Robert Dunlop. I spoke to him a couple of weks ago about an R6 engine. He was a legend.
