Will be interesting to see their "take" on what goes on there. Always enjoy the British documentaries, with their interviews, accent, and subject matter.

Rather hear someone else's voice besides Ralph Shehean, Brian Drebber, Dave Despain, or who is that other annoying flat liner guy that used to cover 500cc championship racing in the early 90's? Oh yeah his name is...Bob Varsha? He was a total snore compared to Julian Ryder or Keith Leuwen.

Is it based on Mike Hailwoods return to the Island or someone coming out of retirement?

That movie depressed me. The Dunlops suffered tragically for the family occupation. Some obsessions maybe should be broken.

Had to google the Dunlop family. Pretty intense. Evrybody told me I should quite after my accident. That I was "lucky" and that I had played my "get out of death free card" and "should quit while the decision was still mine"
But what kind of example would I set for my children if I stopped doing something I love because I got hurt. Obviously my situation is different than there's. But to me it's the embodiment of the motorcycle Spirit

Meh... I just went out to find a link to why I can't stand Liam, and ended up changing my mind.

Regardless what movie this piece of shit is in, I'm not watchin it. He needs to move his dumb ass back to the UK.

Exactly! After my wreck it was never a question in my mind that I would be back on a bike as soon as I physically could. Some things you just have to take risks for.
