TT: the gift that just keeps giv­ing


I rode to my first TT with eight friends this year. What an ex­pe­ri­ence. And one of the many high­lights was Peter Hick­man’s maiden win. We met him the day af­ter at the Creek Inn, Peel. He couldn’t have been more hum­ble. He had a bike at the pub and we laughed about his com­plete ab­sence of chicken strips. He said: ‘I once rode this so hard that the tyre folded over the rim and left the im­pres­sion of the tyre name on the rim.’ I tried to re­mem­ber that at the three fast cor­ners af­ter the Goose­neck on my Tuono Fac­tory. But it didn’t re­ally hap­pen for me! Great TT pic­tures from Dave Col­lis­ter in the Au­gust is­sue. Brian Ben­son, email
