If that's where Guy comes from?

 Guy Martin's quote from the Superbike Press Conference, I don't understand what he means? can anybody explain?

I think it means - 'there is no point wishing for things, wishing won't change things'....:winkie:...

Old Scottish Proverb:-


 "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride
If turnips were swords, i'd wear one by my side
If ifs and ands were pots and pans,
there'd be no need for tinkers' hands"
