Will see you there, I hope, thanks to a generous offer of friendship from the resident fast MV riders there.

Thinking I should ship riding gear over ahead of time. Leathers appropriate (not race...just street suit)? Or would Kevlar Jeans and Alpinstar armored textile be better? and rain suit is mandatory from what I have heard.

I am really getting excited as this draws near.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Hi Ed

I would not bother shipping them ahead I have just been away to Spain and with a light good sized sportsbag with my leathers + clothes it was under 20 kilos.
If you send ahead it will just cost you more dosh which means less money to spend on beer.

If you have not got one buy a helmet bag and use that as your carry on.Bring a waterproof rain suite if you have one the last 3 TTs have been sunny and if it rains much we won't go out that much.

Bring leathers

We will be in the bar with Ade buying.

Bam

I'm there - arriving on the 3rd and going home on 12th. Bring it on!

Ade - you were talking about doing a pre-Bubba BBQ - when you looking to do it?
