Default that time of year

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.

Default back now

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
anthony
