We lead a varied and exciting life at Taxation.
Following our invite to the Sport Relief do, I received an invite from my friends at Isle of Man Finance to a private viewing of the 100 Years on the Roads: a History of the Isle of Man TT Races, a photo exhibition, curated by Murray Walker no less, at the Getty Images Gallery.
Should I take the old skid-lid, I thought to myself.

In the end I decided that it would not go well with a suit (unless it was leather I guess), but clutching my motorcycle licence off I went.
There were a couple of bikes and the Audi TT race car out front, and inside was a great collection of photos from Getty Images – definitely worth a visit by any bikers or ex-bikers out there.
With talks by Murray Walker himself (never knew that his old man was a TT racer), lap record holder John McGuiness (132 mph round 37 miles of country roads), and fastest newcomer Steve Plater (125 mph +) among others, a great time was had by all.
At one point I found myself chatting to Mark Wilsmore, the MD of the Ace Café in north London, and anyone who wants to get some information on bikes, what’s happening and to see some photos of rockers and the like should visit the website, if not the café itself.
Perhaps I’ll post him the copy of Taxation 3 April 2008, with the speeding police bikes on the front; then again…
