Links to my pics I took on my two week trip around [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], and the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - whilst there I rode around the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and watched some of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and went to the prize giving.

Other pics might be of interest, the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - I got the surprise of my life when I went in there, the first poster I looked at was of a former boss!
Also a few of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Didn't see much of the place, my calf had cramped earlier in the day and I was battling to walk - not easy at the best of times in bike gear.

Pam took pics too, hers are [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It's on my need to do again list. Might try and do the Southern 100 again - doubt you'll get any closer to the action and be more able to move about than this. Racing over 3 evenings, so plenty of time to 'pootle about' lachen during the day. Thursday is a full day racing and a prize giving party in the square.
If you can get on and off the island during the week and spend 4 nights there then the ferry price drops.

Any nibbles? Very Happy

Some video clips of the TT circuit. I edited the first 3 clips, cutting out the traffic and being stationary. Didn't do that with the part getting in Ramsey, the hairpin and the mountain road etc. I guess it gives a more accurate view of what the conditions were really like. Due to some superb editing on my part Rolling Eyes , I have managed to get the start/finish area at the beginning of part 3 then it cuts back 'to the action'.

It was clean .. ish Crying or Very sad yes - not that I cleaned it before setting off - I'd have been gutted if I had taken the cloth to it.
It picked up part of Wales' and most of Ireland's road muck in a few days. Took a good few hours on Saturday to sort of get a shine back (actually it's the cleanest it's been since I got it Rolling Eyes )
Do I lose my dirt bike award now? Wink
