    To add to an already tragic weekend in motorcycle racing, we've lost two more competitors at the IOM TT: Dwight Beare and Paul Shoesmith.

    All our worst fears hearing of a riders death, RIP, sadly sometimes no matter what the track officials do, high speed and frailties of the human body come off second best, all the safety in the world but it can still be dangerous, track officials will learn from this, and future riders will benefit from the recognition of this sad event. Great young rider, will be sadly missed.
    It used to be "Rock around the clock" now its "limp around the block".................................In the shed...... Multistrada 1200, Termi full system with matching ECU, and ohlins SCU. KTM 640 supermotard, with full titanium system and a shit load of spares. (track bike) and a Bran spanking new 1290 GT. Torque monster.

    Sad day for Moto2......

    http://www.motogp.com/en/news/2017/1...changes/247213

    Thread resurrection...Saw this story today and was reminded of Luis Salom and the conversation we had in this thread back then. Looks like Circuit de Catalunya is making changes to the parts of the track where Luis perished, looks to include moving the grandstands back in order to increase the size of the runoff.

    I think this is great, it cant be cheap to do but its the right thing to do, so glad to see they’ve agreed to spend the euros. Wonder how much pressure the FIM/DORNA/etc. had to apply?
