Went in 2101 with a bunch of mates from Australia, Adelaide to Singapore, Singapore Manchester, Manchester to Douglas by small plane. Our first day out at Kirk Michael, the travelling marshals come though and close of the road, drape a couple of bits of rope across drive ways and car park openings, then it get’s eerily quiet, you know what will be happening soon. A few cans of larger....your very first IOM experience of watching the bikes come past at 180-190 MPH.. There are just no words to describe it.

I'm also going to be running a wee TT thread in the day tripping forum, as I didn't want to be dumping pics in y2blade's thread.

Guys feel free to put pics in this thread, makes them easier to see all in one place if you like...I'd love to see them


Horrible Mixed weather conditions last night , So frustrating for all the teams/riders ...sounded very challenging from the comments made by the racers after their run out.

I finish work today then head up to Liverpool late tomorrow night...dock at Douglas on Isle of Man Sat at 07:15.
Can't wait.

Let me just say the Island is amazing!!! I am staying on Promenade Row and walked to the Grandstand area. Got there about 45 minutes before they were supposed to start off. Looked around then high tailed it down Bray Hill and got me a choice spot on the fence line mid way down. They started a little late and took a newcomer around then Rain at Ramsey !! I mean, was I not going to get to see anything? There was a big shower there and they delayed until 7:15. It started to rain but no matter the boys took off!! I can say that I have never seen anything like that before. They came flying over the hill and hit another gear at a good 130MPH and the front wheel went toward the sky, downhill The boys have balls of steel.

Having said that, there were more showers, and most pulled into the pits after the first lap. McGuinness said it was so wet you couldnt learn anything about the bike and it just wasnt worth going another lap. He was on the 600 and he said the big bike is what he really needs time on because its 'scarey' and you really need seat time to get it sorted and under control. Interesting comment coming from 'the man'. The interviewed a couple of other guys who said 60% of the track was wet with standing water in some places and you couldnt touch 5th and braking was an issue. Basically they all seem pretty disappointed; all the way through Wed and maybe they have 3 laps total each. The sidecars did more than one lap though, at least some of them and actually a couple of the bikes went more than one.

Well it wasnt much for my first TT but wouldnt trade it for the world. Maybe stars will align and I can make it next year. In any event here are a few pics


AWESOME thanks for the update and pics...please keep them coming.

I love the Mugen Shinden bike, really do ..those ice valley bikes look great too..they all do tbh.


Have a great TT

Okay, I admit I am not a technical expert but when I went to ITV I am told I can't watch because of my location, outside UK. Is there any other choices or ways to get the coverage?

I'm using the VLC player and having no problems. If you're running a Mac you can dl the player and I can send you the text file you need to use. Let me know.
