Just the two of us then.
Not surprising really.
I'm sure we'll have a good time.
Stay safe Dave.

Yes. Me too.
I now prefer the Manx.
But after 42 consecutive TT's I find it a hard ride to get off.

Do you get a prize when you get to 50?

Hello, blimey 42 visits to the TT back to back is dedication, doing both in one year is expensive. I just do the TT now only because of cost.......Cheers Dave

We go to the Classic TT every year. This year we're checking out the Real TT as well, having a day trip to Douglas on the Wednesday. We stopped the TT about 10 years ago due to the cost of doing both. Overnight boat there Tuesday night and late boat back on Wednesday, it's going to be a very long day. Wednesday will probably be that one day it rains. No transport either so grandstand and pits in the morning and Quaterbridge in the afternoon.

That sounds like an amazing plan👍😊. If you know of anywhere Paul that can be rented out for the Classic TT next year I'd be interested (along with the O/H).
Two years ago I managed to find accommodation in Peel for the TT but couldn't get a ferry unless I went without the bike!
It seems you can get one or the other but the stars never align to get the same dates for the ferry and accommodation 😕. The last time I went to the TT was in 1998, those bikes are now racing in the Classic TT!!
1976 Honda 400/4
1977 Honda 400/4
1981 Honda CB250RSA
1977 Rickman Honda CR750
1999 Honda VFR 800FX
1955 750 Dresda Triton
1978 Moto Morini 350 Sport
1982 Laverda 120 Jota
