    Hello,

    TT has just finished and I’m back in the real world :( but I thought I would share some of my photo’s. I’m not much of a photographer, so please bear than in mind.

    Lets start with the electric bikes, because I think they are the most interesting.

    This is Michael Rutter on the race winning bike, and fastest electric bike @ 104mph average lap.

    He is his teammate, Mark Miller, who was 3rd in the race.

    And the last pictures I’ve got is of John McGuiness. He was 2nd in the race, and I thought his bike was beautiful.

    Just a handful more of the electric bikes. Apologies, as these were taken with my phone’s camera.

    This is from the launch of the Segway bike

    Last up is the Mugen Shinden bike, and once again I cannot describe how beautiful this bike is, these pictures do not do it justice.

    Superb!

    Thanks for the pictures,
    Happyal. I also agree with you that the McGuiness Mugen is a piece of motorcycling art.

    And actually, I half-expected him to beat Rutter…

    Couple more, this is from Supersport race 1.

    This is Cameron Donald on the No 4 bike, towing around Ryan Farquhar.

    Here is the race winner, Bruce Anstey, who was impressive to watch.

    I'm not sure who this is, but I like his tassels on his leathers, I think he must have been a cowboy.

    TT 2013 has started, and I hope to be out and about again with a Camera.

    Looking forward to seeing how the Electric bikes have advanced, and seeing the Stars again. I think Michael Dunlop on the works Honda will be certain to win one or two this year.

    Not really had much of a chance to sort my pictures yet, but here is a nice picture of McGuiness from the first Superbike race.

    I will get some more sorted as soon as I can.

    Here are the 2 leader congratulating each other after a very close race, they didn't know which one of them had won and where asking the crowd.

    2015 TT has just finished, it seemed a lot busier this year and the atmosphere was awesome. I kept forgetting to take my camera with me, but here a couple I got on my phone. I do have a couple more I will upload over the next few days.

    These are from the TT Zero, electric race. These pictures are at the end of the course, and these bikes were seriously quick this year. Pretty impressive development over a few short years.
