So I took a 1/2 day off to visit the motorcycle show to see Joeys memorabilia.
Great to see it all.
When Joey was in Australia he was looking at a bike and the other competitor asked him if he would take it for a spin, so he set off at 200 mph +
The local cops stopped him on his return trip.
"Who the hell do you think you are Joey bloody Dunlop?" Asked the police man.
"Well I hope so" said Joey taking off his helmet.
"I want you to come down to the police station tomorrow at 5 pm"
"Are you going to arrest me?" said Joey


Here is a video about the great man

And a story from a taxi
