    Coverage starts tonight at 10 CST on Velocity here in the States. I read somewhere yesterday that the Superbike race is postponed until tomorrow due to rain delays during practice week.

    Yeah, although since the racing runs every other day for a solid week, most folks go for at least that week if not the whole week of practice the week before that. for them it just means they get racing for two consecutive days rather than having Sunday "off", and that they have an open Saturday to ride the TT course and drink beer in the pubs. Wish my days off were like that, LOL.

    Michael Dunlop currently has the fastest lap of 2017 on the new CBR, which is encouraging for Honda fans. I hope he's carrying Nicky's number somewhere on the bike--that would be cool.

    I replied a while back but I think the mods deleted it because I linked to a TT story. Sorry, mods. Most folks go for at least the race week, and many go for the prior week of practice, too, so I doubt too many will be put out by having to wait until tomorrow for the first race of the 2017 event. All it means to them is that they get races on Sunday and Monday rather than Saturday and Monday. And get to spend Saturday riding the TT course in between practice sessions and then drinking beer in the pubs. What a terrible way to pass the time, LOL.

    Word has it that Michael Dunlop did the first 131 mph lap of the 2017 event, a good sign for Honda fans given that he's on the new CBR.

    My brother in law and I were going next year. I had deposits on a ferry and two bikes...then I realized it conflicted with my kid's graduation. The TT is high on my bucket list, too, but not that high. Hopefully 2019.

    Well, duh. I guess since I'm in the process of buying a Honda, that was wishful thinking on my part since the Morecambe Missle is out. Here's hoping he doesn't hang it up for good.
