in the name of suffering i have to lay down my tools and abandon my project to go to the land of tt where ferries will whisk me over the ocean with my kawasaki and they make you watch bikes racing as it's the law of iom land :)
apparently sitting outside of pubs with pints is also a pre required thing so as to not get into trouble over there i will partake of this drinking and motor sport watching and generally tour about sight seeing too along with chatting to fellow bikers on me travels.
have fun everyone in 100 % biker and trike forums, its gonna be a tough old week ahead for me :) yeahhhhhhh off to tt

I hear the ferry co's requiring photo ID before they let you on (in light of recent atrocities). Just a heads up.

hi all we had agreat time over in iom but practice was cancelled on two nights and only a short session on another night, still a fantastic break and yes went up laxeys wheel but it was a cool day which was interesting in bike boots.
i realise its horrible waking up sober without brekkie being made for us now im back :)
met a lovely couple and they coming to look at my project in a week or so on their bike but was nice being around all the bikes and bikers without looking over my shoulder too much and heres some pics and i bought an iom pin badge for a tenner that gets you in all the heritage places while there so we went to them all.
great stuff on with the fun

i feel very lucky and trying to sort for next year too and the funniest thing i saw was the c90 and also a load of mopeds all racing past in a group.
some of them were really old morini mopeds with a fs1e in the group and i think boy am i feeling that sense of not being there now :( the week feels very empty and bikeless booooo must find a rally or two to go to with girlfriend, been winding her up watching a race outfit on ebay :) her face didnt look happy lol

saw the tv footage of him crashing last night friar tuck and the interview with him in the tent with honda team manager where they said they putting john mcguiness's damaged bike together with new parts, they both didnt sound very confident at all but i'm glad he didnt get too injured.
set my sky box to record all the tt bits
