08 IoM BSA Rally Con't.

so yeah, Isle of Man. i'm there in August 2008 with about 500 other folks from around the world. most of us RDOE in on BSAs of assorted vintages. it was pretty great, but ya think it rains at ALL on the IoM? we rolled off the Steam Packet Ferry (out of Liverpool) in Douglas around midnight -a whole other story i won't get into, suffice it to say that we began calling the Steam PAcket Company the Steam RACKET Company.

anyhow, midnight, and it was POURING rain. no drizzle, no mild rain, it was dumping buckets. here's what the campground looked like next morning:

but yeah it was still the Isle of Man so we didn't really care what was happening. we were there to ride.

to be continued....
