I remember falling off a bike because my flares slipped over the Kickstarter.  Chafing of the calves due to the excess material whipping about at speed was also a problem. This editing of this film apart from the racing is awful. 🤣

Triumph Thunderbird 900 Yamaha rxs 100 and too many bantams !

Good vid, I`ve watched a third of it so far, will treat myself to the rest later.....there`s some interesting footage, thanks for posting.

What a dedicated follower of fashion the great man was 🙂  I have to confess to wearing flared trooserz, penny collars & platform shoes in the early `70s. Last time I saw him was at Donington Park with his arm in a sling being chauffeured  in a Jag, July `79.

I was just watching 2019 vid doing the rounds, with the other IOM TT great, still switching on the charm, with the female interviewer.

Haha, I`d`ve much preferred to have been a Teddy Boy or Rocker, but I was born in the `50s and in my defence, I didn`t wear them for long, but the garb helped with pulling the birds for that short window 🙂
