The 2009 Ramsey Sprint: Always a great draw card, I adore Ramsey and the machinery did not disappoint! The 'track' is actually a 'one eighth of a mile' section of Mooragh Promenade, which runs parallel with the northern coastline of Ramsey.

THE HAYABUSA FILES: Seemingly unburstable, the venerable Suzuki Hayabusa receives quite a work over by some owners. The line between pure Show Bike and Sprint Racer can appear very wide when appreciating the amount of detail on some of these machines.

STAGGERING, BUSA'S LOOK GREAT IN ANY COLOUR, BUT THIS, WOW!!

BEAUTIFUL WORKMANSHIP

TYRE SEEMS SMALL

POLISHED FRAME

AN ALMOST STANDARD BUSA, LIGHTING UP THE REAR

BUSA LE, ON STEROIDS

CHECK THE BAR GRIPS, OUCH!

NOW THAT'S A TYRE

THE HARLEY DAVIDSON V-ROD: Well presented, personally I would have painted the frame another colour. The Radiator shroud is substantially 'narrower' than standard.

VERY SLIPPERY SHAPE, WITH STANDARD BELT DRIVE

RADIATOR IS MUCH SMALLER

ANOTHER 'HUGE' TYRE

TTXGP SPRINT BIKE: The Kingston University/LifeBatt Team had a very sophisticated entry in the TTXGP, details here.  The Team also developed a Sprint Bike for Ramsey, suffice to say it was a 'first attempt at Ramsey'. The runs were expected to be 'quiet' but also offered very little forward motion!!

NO NOISE, NO TYRE SPIN, ALL HAPPENING.  MAYBE NEXT YEAR!!

MINIMAL FRAME

DECENT BATTERY 'SIZE'

Concourse: The 2009 Concourse De Elegance, located adjacent the Sprint 'Track' had healthy numbers and some very well presented machinery.
