No, I'll be there for the entire race week. I was just thinking about only renting a bike for a couple of those days to explore the Isle properly. The remainder of the days would be spent near the course with a beer in my hand.

At the Manx, spectators/tourists are normally on classic bikes.
In that aspect, the Manx would be more interesting to watch. Unless they change the dates though, we won't be able to attend until we are both retired from our careers. By that age, my diabetes will likely be advanced enough to all but eliminate my ability to drink beer and whiskey. Therefore, I'm going with the TT while I can still enjoy all it has to offer.
