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.

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.

We have the Bordello party night in Douglas on Saturday 5th, so I'll liaise with FJ and see what he has to say.

What we are aiming for is a BBQ with some of the very best sausages you have ever seen and tasted in your life, FJ has the Ferrari of BBQ machines too.

Will keep you all posted

Man it comes around fast! I was going to go this year but.....work and stuff intervenes, as usual.
next year, fingers crossed!
I can't go this year (and probably not next year either), but I would advise starting to make enquiries and arrangements within a week of this TT finishing. I assume you're flying in, so ferries are not so much of an issue, but it won't harm to start looking at accomodation already. :drummer:

With Ed being used to driving on completly the wrong side of the road should he be forced to use handle signals only.

There are even signs around the TT course for the Germans " Links Farren Bitter " I think thats how you spell it!!

Ahhh Jimmy.....we drive on the RIGHT side of the road.

None-the-less, I've experienced driving in the UK, Bremuda, Australia and New Zealand....I'll just follow you and presume I will be safe (if i can keep up, that is).

I know it's a little early but was wondering if someone could help me plan a trip to the IOM.

My wife and I are planning a trip to Ireland in 2011 and I thought i would try to work it around so that I could spend one day watching the TT's.

I know that lodging is hard to come by so here is what I was thinking:

We're going to be in Dublin so i thought we would take an early morning flight to the IOM and then spend all day watching the races and fly back to Dublin at night.

Does this make sense? Would one day be enough or would it be a waste of time? Any other suggestions?

My advice would be to leave the wife in Dublin and come here for a week!!

If that means divorce then I would say you need to allow 2 days at least as what can happen if it is rainy then the race would be the next day.

Accomos wise don't worry if it is 2011 thats miles away yet and something can normally be sorted.Allso get a hire car sorted in good time but you don't need to do anything yet.

Alternativly if your wife is fit you stay in Dublin and send the wife! sorry to be flippent your welcome anytime just bell us nearer the time
