    image.jpg Bruce Anstey is apparently going to ride the RC213V-S at the TT in the Superbike and Senior races. How good is that going to sound blasting around the island?!

    Better hope he's paid the extra £8k for the race kit then :D or McGuinness and Dunlop will be laughing

    Does look good in those colours though!

    Good job the bikes based on older rc213v rather than this yrs gp bike or the bike would be embedded into the wall at the first bend at bottom of brayhill as the front end would give out! :eek:

    It'll be embarrassing for Honda if it doesn't achieve a podium.

    Going to watch tomorrow from just after Ballagarey, can't wait to hear this beauty tearing up Ballahutchin towards me, it does give me goose pimples just thinking about it, especially as the weather is behaving itself too!

    But going to have to find a slow corner to hear him coming down the gears...Braddan Bridge, Ballacraine or the Hairpin are favourite for this I reckon.
