2019 Tandragee 100 Results

2019 Tandragee 100

What a day!

Wall to wall sunshine and huge crowds brought the 2019 Tandragee 100 to life, and the amazing racing – all day – along with some superb organisation made it an event to remember!

As soon as racing started it flowed almost perfectly with only one slight delay to clean up a minor oil spill and one further unfortunate delay following a race incident in which Adam McLean was separated from his machine in what was a really hotly contested battle between himself and Derek McGee – Their fastest laps were only separated by a mere 0.122s!

More importantly Adam is doing well and I would like to wish him a very speedy recovery and return the roads.  The talent he had on display here this weekend was simply astounding!

It was another phenomenal day for Derek McGee, taking 4 race wins, Derek Shiels taking the ‘McCrum’s Motorcycles Aprilla Open Superbike Race‘ from him at the line in an amazing race nipping McGee to that victory by 0.4 seconds.

McGee got his own back though in the ‘Around A Pound Tandragee 100 Final‘ – with Shiels leading until the final lap McGee managed to nip back just before the line taking the victory with 0.195 seconds to spare!

Crowd favourite (and one of mine), Guy Martin, was out on his Classic Bullet 3 BSA and raced really well, taking second on the road behind Dean Stimpson (in a great battle that lasted the entire race), and winning his class in the ‘Millside Engineering / R Heatrick / W McCombe / Woolsey Concrete Classic.

It was great to see Tandragee buzzing – hopefully there were a few new spectators who came along, because if that was your first road race experience you should be hooked.  Tandragee 2019 had it all – loads of racing, minimal unavoidable delays, great structure and awesome weather.

Hope Santa was good to you all, if not not and you were on the naughty list and got some coal, never worry there is always next year.

iPhone X : A Week Later

iPhone X - 3rd November 2017
iPhone X – 3rd November 2017

Rather than do an unboxing video or solo gallery of the new iPhone X I have decided to combine a gallery with my initial thoughts and a very short term review.

I have had the iPhone X a week, having been lucky enough to get one on release day (3rd November 2017), and I’ll be straight up – I am impressed.

I’ll also be honest – it is damned expensive!  A 256 GB model will set you back £1149 and if you want AppleCare it’s another £199 – so thats £1348 for a phone with 2 years piece of mind!  If you dont want piece of mind just throw your eyes over this repair price list – it may (or may not) sway your decision on AppleCare.  Personally I get AppleCare on all my Apple devices – (something I have never actually had reason to use) whether you do or not is obviously a personal choice however at these prices some sort of insurance seems like a no-brainer.

Quick Review : TI Ballpoint – Solid Titanium Pen + Stylus

I have reviewed a few pens on this site and pens are one of my frequent searches on crowd funding sites.  So when you couple a pen with Titanium, I am instantly interested.

This was however an eBay find, but I believe it started its life on Kickstarter as a Titanium pen that accepts 35 refills without any modification.  A plug and play pen : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/klinkokids/ti-ballpoint-pen-stylus-refill-friendly-titanium-p

TI Ballpint Pen Accepts over 35 Refills

It was well funded back in 2014 – looking $10,000 and ending up with over $38,500.

If you got in early enough you could have picked up the early bird at $59.  They currently sell for about $75 on their website.

I picked mine up for an absolute bargain price of £15 – brand new and unused on eBay!  Result!
