Dutch TT MotoGP ; Who's going?

Hello All,

I'm planning to head down to Assen this Weekend, to go and see at least part of the Dutch TT- I'm probably going to Take the Train or Coach from London to Amsterdam and then Rent a Bike to Ride up to Assen.

Anyone else planning to go? I'm going for the Friday qualifying, hope it should be fun!
Also, could anyone recommend a good bike hire place in Amsterdam? I only of one,

I don't know if they're any good, but you can also rent at:

http://www.silverline.nl/motorverhuu...ctie_amsterdam

Watch your speed going to the TT, since the police tend to monitor every road going to Assen in the TT week and not only in the last couple of kilometers, but also those at 100+ km around Assen (with a special eye out for motorcyclists).

Thanks for the tip- I'll check them out today.

I imagine it must be packed with Bikers- I hope it won't be too busy on the Friday though!

Check here for mobile speed traps:
http://flits.flitsservice.nl/meldingen/flitsersmap.aspx (the exclamation marks are congestions, the blue markers are the speed traps).

This doesn't account for the serious presence of (unmarked) police cars & bikes on the routes to the TT.

And Motoport Amsterdam is an official ticket seller.

Thanks, I'm planning to stay on the slow side to be honest!

Also the weather might be a bit off and rainy that day so will take it easy.

For tickets i'm planning to get them at the track directly for Friday.

Reminds me of the time my son and I were weaving through the heavy traffic heading up to Assen. Then we came across a scruffy old purple ST1100 and thought nothing of going past until he appeared on my wing 2 minutes later. Shit. Unmarked cop bike.

Nearly had our bikes impounded and got threatened with a walk to the track...

We must have looked suitably sheepish, as he let us go after such a roasting.

We've dined out on that story every TT since, but we stick to the speed limits now...

They fined a little over 2000 people for speeding this year.
