RIP - Robert Dunlop

Isle of Man TT winner Robert Dunlop died in a crash during the Northwest 200 in Northern Ireland.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...n_page_id=1954

He was the brother of motorcycling legend Joey Dunlop, who was also killed in a race a few years ago.

I've been at the Northwest 200 twice and it's an awesome venue, but little room for error as, like the Isle of Man TT, the racers fly along narrow country roads, some with jagged rock walls for barriers, others with nothing keeping them from flying off the roads. A stop at Joey's pub, in Ballymoney to pay our respects was always par for the course when in "Norn Iron".
