    Because of the distances - and our eye sight - on Sids last run, me and John thought we saw a large puff of blue smoke as he thundered up towards us. He recons the bike was geared and sprocketed to be 250mph flat out. He may have been spinning up all along as the rear tyre was a tadge worn. No friggin way would I have had a go at that but I was well impressed by Sid and his fellow riders engineering and style/talents. Its not just twist and go for it.
    John and me were Very proud to have helped Sid with the spanners on his bike. Summat else to brag about at his doo in France (near to the town of Dausse) in August. Sid asked me to remind his mates that all are welcome. We also saw a chap pedalling a "pushbike" at 135mph = now he was fuckin crackers. Also a chap riding had only one arm = didnt dare ask how he lost it !!!!!
    Great entertainment for a fiver and very very enlightning as you can walk all around the "pits" area.
