40 years to the day

It is 40 years to the day, that Peter, my step dad of 24 yrs, won the TT on his Monocoque Norton. Cool hey ;)

Your adopted "old" is a very special man. Seems he was rather good with a ped :ok:

Re: 40 years to the day

Also look up The Race of The Powerbikes on You Tube, it's an entire documentary on Peter Williams.
Sadly he can't race anymore after a terrible crash at Brands Hatch that left him unable to walk properly and more metal in him than you could shake a metal rod at!
He also thinks my bike is too powerful for me lol, love him to bits ;)

I think we should all descend on S-Jay's gaff and get her old man to tell us all what it was really like

Re: 40 years to the day
