Stop it Bill - all these names, sounds and Memories, Great Job. Congratulations for all the wonderful records now saved long after you and me gone on YouTube ! The truly amazing fact about Mike Hailwood that he could ride any bike and get the best from it ! Suzuki RK 57 50cc TWIN (14:45) 17,000 RPR and 170 kph (over 100 mph on a 50cc!)

I was there in 1967 aged 16, sitting on a banking just before the grandstand on Glencrutchery Road. Ago pushed his bike right past my feet on his way back to the pits. When his chain snapped in the senior he freewheeled down from the mountain (bypassing Governors dip which got him disqualified) and pushed his bike all the way up Glencrutchery Road. I was back there this year to celebrate my 50th year anniversary. This is me, under the arrow, in the 1967 Motor Cycle magazine. https://www.flickr.com/photos/128739709@N07/35517900861/in/album-72157685626685546/lightbox/

Great photos and great memories.I was there to see the Senior aged 15.I was on Glencrutchery Road just before the grandstand across the road under the trees.I particularly recall Mike Hailwood at the end of lap 1 giving a "Thumbs down" to his pit so there was obviously something amiss with the Honda.And later on after Ago had broken down he returned to his pit with tears rolling down his face.I often wondered how he got the MV back with no chain.Maybe he got towed by a travelling marshall.As good as the TT is today ,for me there is no comparison with the sounds and excitement of the sixties.We used to get the midnight day excursion boat from Liverpool and in 1967 the landing stage was packed with fans boarding the steamers chanting"AGO....AGO..."or others including me with"HAILWOOD...HAILWOOD"Fantastic memories!

Hi Tony. I was also there in 1967 aged 16, sitting on a banking just before the grandstand on Glencrutchery Road. Ago pushed his bike right past my feet on his way back to the pits. When his chain snapped he freewheeled down from the mountain ( bypassing Governors dip which got him disqualified) and pushed his bike all the way up Glencrutchery Road.

Magic, I was there as a Fan the sounds bring back so memories. Bill and Tommy had a ball, some say they were not 'proddy bikes' but who are we to question!!! John's ride was ace I watched at Hilberry and it was a bit damp but to see John keep it 'flat' there whilst the frame decided to flex was a sight to behold!!

Great stuff. Much has been written and shown about the top stars in the TT races but to my delight this also gives some mention to other riders and some of their unusual machines.

Great to see Velocette getting 1st and 2nd in the 500cc production class in 1967. with the squish head ! I ride a 60 Venom. I like the BSA and Norton and Matchless as well. And the Triumph. and Douglas. BRITISH SINGLES !!!

I had a Douglas Dragonfly at one time (1961) which I set off to ride to Switzerland, however only got me as far as Watford (60 miles) before timing chest gears decided they were going to have a bit of a 'chew up' After a fellow biker stopped to help and unbelievably put the up the night and helped strip the bike to find the problem, next day took on his Sunbeam S7 Sidecar to "Pride & Clarke" London to obtain the parts. Returned and fitted the new gears, and he insisted it was too late too set off and stop another night. Next day set off for Dover but my confidence in the Douglas was broken and ended up storing the Douglas at Dover and taking the train.
