Motorcycle Live 2019

Motorcycle Live returns to the NEC, Birmingham in 2019 from 16th – 24th November 2019, so at the time of writing you still have time to visit the show and I can easily recommend that you do visit the show.

Official Motorcycle Live Website

I have reviewed the Motorcycle Live Exhibition a number of times of already – so have a look at them if you are undecided on your attendance. In summary though I have been going since 2014 and that trip requires getting up before 3am to make my flight and not getting home to around 11pm. That should be enough to make anyone think it is worth checking out – but let’s put it simply – it is a day walking about looking at bikes, talking about bikes, spending money on bikes or at least thinking about how you would spend money on bikes – how else would you rather spend a cold, damp November’s day?

Just for reference in case anyone – cough BMW Motorrad cough – is feeling generous this is now top of my wish list…

2020 Isle of Man TT Schedule

The 2020 Isle of Man TT Schedule has been released and we have all the important dates and times to help you plan your trip, or if you can’t make it to the island at least you will know what time to tune into Manx Radio to ensure you don’t miss a thing.

Two things of note though.  The first may actually benefit you if you are heading over for practice week from Dublin – the first scheduled practices are now on the Sunday of Practice week. Traditionally the first day of practice was Saturday, however the first 2020  session will now be on Sunday 31st May afternoon – so if you are on that Dublin sailing think sharp – get off the boat and you will hopefully catch some Sunday qualifying.

Secondly – and sadly – there will be no TT Zero qualifying or racing in 2020 and 2021.  The class has been dropped for two years, allegedly to ‘allow development’.  TT Zero has been running for a decade and the electric machines from Mugen are responsible for a 121.824mph lap.  I get that the entry is low and also that the Mugen will win, but still, TT Zero showed innovation and look at that lap time!  I fully understand that many argue passionately that a TT Zero win shouldn’t really be counted as a TT win.  I am all for opinions, but that opinion is one I’ll just have to disagree with. It may ‘only‘ be 1 lap – but that one lap is potentially 120+mph and considering the lap size of 37 miles then it really isn’t to be sniffed at.  That one lap is still more than most full length Irish and Northern Irish National races.  Hopefully come 2022 more teams will be in the field, on the track and ready to race!

Finally – this schedule is subject to change and given the weather we have had over the last couple of years this schedule will change.  At the time make sure to follow : 

And of course don’t forget the TBNI Road Racing Calendar – that will keep you up to date with all the Irish / Northern Ireland and Manx Road Racing Schedules.

2019 Road Racing Season is Over

End of Season
End of Season

The 2019 Road Racing Season is now over (with the exception of Macau).

You will notice a bit of a change in the site content over the coming winter months – with more ‘tech’ content. Just go with it, you might even like it – and be safe in the knowledge that when the bikes are back on the roads all the important info will still be here.

If you have no interest in anything that else that the site has to offer I won’t hold that against you either – just bookmark or save the site to your favourites and I will see you again in April 2020!

In the meantime make sure you subscribe to the TBNI Road Racing Calendar – as always it is free, keep up to date and already is starting to get the 2020 dates added to it. If you haven’t already subscribed have a read and get that sorted.

See you in April 2020

2019 East Coast Racing Festival Results (Killalane)

The 2019 East Coast Racing Festival concludes the 2019 Irish Road Racing Season.

Unfortunately I couldn’t get anywhere near Killalane due to a mechanical incident with my bike – well some a**e left a massive screw on the M1 motorway near Dublin and ruined my chances of getting anywhere near the racing.  So thanks for that you inconsiderate t**t!

However well done to all involved in the event.  If you would like a decent recap of the event check out the

2019 Manx GP Results

Just like for the 2019 TT Races the weather did its upmost to put a dampener on things for the Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix over the 2019 Festival of Motorcycling.

However through some tough days and good calls from the Clerk of the Course, Gary Thompson, we got our racing.

The 2019 MGP ran from 17th – 30 August 2019.
