Geoff Duke, multiple Isle Of Man TT champion. Slickest rider ever. Aged 92. And he's taking his final journey in a fitting manner, with a lap of the TT mountain course. ..>

Remember going in The Crosby Hotel and seeing his Manx Norton on display in a glass case in the Lounge Bar back in the late 90's.

Soon be TT time again - my favourite week of the year on ITV4.

Have to get back to the IOM.
