Is it me or as I watch the iom bike episode (more4hd) when the 2 guys set off on their Ducati’s they’re on the correct side of the road then an aerial view shows them riding on the right hand side and a road marking saying SLOW is mirror reversed. Sorry I’ll hang up my anorak and go look for my pcv pipe

Not just you. I saw that too, and wondered momentarily if they drive on the right on the Isle of Man :lol:

if you mount a go-pro upside down, then let the software spin the video, it looks like you’re driving on the wrong side of the road.
