Unfortunately I missed the Jurby Airfield event. That won't happen again!

First day (for me and a couple of others), was a wash out, so we were loaded into the back of the van, and taken for a detailed tour of the circuit. And the pubs along the way. Oh yeah, it got messy...

Step outside that door during the TT, and you'll have race bikes passing within a few meters at speeds nudging 300Ks.



Kind of appropriate, considering our rider was running a 500/4. Beer wasn't bad either.

Time to look at some bikes. Just about everything you have, and haven't seen at the Manx. The most pleasing thing being that they're not all show ponies, but real, ridden machines.

Last raced here in the 90s, but this year just doing the Ramsey Sprint. And no, it's no longer just a 400/4 !

As always, great photos boots. What's the significance of the graveyard?

I recognise that bike. I was pitboarding for a friend at the Gooseneck, spotted your GS, the ADV stickies and the plate that was from the wrong side of the planet! Thought I'd get some pics on my phone for when this thread pops up. (Took your time?)
