 It would be for the insurance company to prove it was unroadworthy

It would be terrible for motorcycling not only for the UK but the rest of the world if the TT were to end for good.
I haven't been since 1999, not because I didn't want to go but because its so expensive and that is if you can get the accommodation and the ferry to coincide, 95% it's one or the other but never both! 3 years ago I had a hotel booked but had to wait for the ferry bookings to open some weeks later, when they did I  couldn't get a ferry within three days of the arrival or departure dates. And this was within 30 minutes of the ferry website opening!
The Steam Packet rip-off the TT, always have done and because they own the dock on the island no other company gets a look-in, you would think the IOM govt would step in considering the wealth it brings to their economy but I guess they are more keen to keep the place as a tax haven for the rich rather than have dirty, smelly motorbike riders hanging around.
I would go to both the TT and the Classic TT if I could and if it didn't cost an arm and a leg to get there.
There's always the Isle of Wight TT to look forward to if it ever gets off the ground.

I was told by Conner Cummins who has family that works for Steam Packet that the IOM Gov set the price not Steam Packet.

There is a possibility. We have seen the last of the TT.

Unfortunately you could well be right especially if the Manx is cancelled as well.   :-X

That's why women buy pink tools; so blokes don't borrow them.

If i had known that i would have had pink tools down the pit.  ;)

Even if the UK was totally free of Covid. Spectators come from all over the world. Something like having to provide a negative test that was taken within 72hrs prior to arrival. Similar to Spain and thats not fool proof as its transmittable on surfaces.

IOM 25 deaths  New Zealand 25 deaths.

What it is doing and will continue to do in this country is to penalize the poorer end of society. Why should those who can afford and want to buy new EVs be sponsored by by the less well off.

One thing i have not said which i should have is the treatment i received from the ambulance paramedics, the staff at Huddersfield A&E and all the staff on the COVID ward at Calderdale Hospital in Halifax was tremendous. Thank you.

I am in the vunerable group having Asthma  and Chronic lymphatic leukaemia So we have tried to be very careful from the very start of all this. But as with all things and the passage of time vigilance drops and you tend to get a little complacent about the small things that keep you safe. No we haven't lived any sort of semi normal life this year really. We have been able to get away in the Motorhome a couple of times through the summer taking a couple of bikes with us and still been able to isolate to a very large extent. Where or how we have caught this we have no idea but we have. I am sure things will only get better for us as time goes on and a full recovery will be made in the due course of time.
It is amazing how much simple well wishing messages pick you up. Stay safe and thanks all.   ;) :)
