THE ISLE OF MAN TT, 2008: I have caught the TT Bug, having never been overseas until the 'mandatory' Centenary TT of 2007, off I went again to the 2008 TT and hopefully many many more to come, they couldn't do it without me now!

I had a few things I wanted to achieve in 2008, specifically 'officially meet' and have my 'picture taken' with Pauline Hailwood, Linda Dunlop and John McGuinness and of course, watch the racing and enjoy myself.

Mission accomplished, Pauline and Linda, absolutely rock solid ladies, outgoing and very approachable and obliging to this interloper. John McGuinness, you're kidding, not only did he take the time to talk to me, the photo together required the services of his Chief Mechanic! Nothing was too much trouble for John, a great guy, so successful at the TT and a bloody nice bloke.

WOOHOO: Pauline and Linda, so generous of their time, so proud to meet both ladies.
