TT ace John McGuinness has taken to social media to thank his fans after injury ruled him out of this year's racing.
Last week the 23-time TT winner came off during the Northwest 200.
He was due to arrive on the Island shortly to compete for Honda alongside Guy Martin, but his injuries mean he won't be able to take to the course.
On Twitter he said it'll take a while to recover, and thanked fans for their concern.
