    Luis Salom was today killed practicing for the Moto2 GP. A talented young rider taken too early.

    He's the second guy killed this year isn't he? I read about another death a few days ago.

    I wonder if eventually the current trend for safe circuits will eventually catch up with the TT?

    Edit: Sorry, another brain fart, this was the Cataluña GP. Nothing to do with the TT.

    No problem. Death is part of the equation but non like the TT when every year they are automatic and accepted. Non of the riders complain, better to live life to the full than just live. A bit tough on the families.

    You were military, nowt you don't know about death. At least your deaths can be justified. Give or take Blair.
