Nice steady line round Ramsey hairpin.

It reminds me of a vid of Steve Hislop doing a TT lap with a voice over 
which gets back to the origin of this thread, crossing the centre to 
improve line. At various points on the circuit he says things like "the 
next three corners can be taken as one if you know the right line" while 
the white lines veer from side to side below him. And yes I know that's an 
experienced rider on a closed road.
