Isle Of Man 2008

Just returned home. Wow what a time!! Racing, pubs and castles. What more could you want. If you plan on going to the TT 2009, I may be able to help you with lodging.

Where the hell were you? I was there for 2 weeks and didn't once hear an Amerikan. Agree, awesome time! Man, those Irish can consume beer.. Took the bus to Ramsey for the sprint races on tuesday-drag racing with full on touring bikes, panners and top boxes. European riders are serious about their sport.

Air from USA to UK and hopper to the Isle. No guess on what the Air tickets will be next year. Hotel rooms are very hard to come by and very expressive. Most are booked two years in advance. Home stay is probably your best bet which is like a bed and breakfast. You will need to book soon. Info. at www.iomtt.com.

If you can't make it to the TT, the Northwest 200 is a very similar race that runs through Northern Ireland and is also great craic! Housing accomodations are pretty easy to come by as well.
