My Isle of Man TT 2014 trip

BraaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA



My 14th TT Trip was as awesome as every one before it.

This is My TT trip in pics, videos and words.
On way to Albert Docks Liverpool, Stopped every hr or so...lots of roadworks and a diversion due to motorway closure..Good run up though

On the Manannan, great vessel.


Off the ferry after a good crossing, first stop for any TT fan has to be the Fairy Bridge (scoff at your peril)



Then on to GlenLough campsite to pitch our homes for the TT
It is Hungry work putting a tent up


Not many racing pics, tbh i like to watch from fast spots and only had my iPhone and GoPro with me.

Superbike race
Josh Brookes


Lee Johnston


Took a stroll around the campsite.
Met some interesting people and some cool bikes, to me this side of things is as important as the racing to my TT experience.










































More, much more to follow.

More pic's of vintage bikes, please!

Had a GS 1000 G back in 1980. Rode that thing all over Europe, including a non-stop (except for fuel) Banzai run from Copenhagen to Torino. Love all the custom bikes, what is that big bruiser (V-twin or V4) with the sidecar?

Thanks for the good feedback, wasn't sure how my pics would go down as only took iPhone and GoPro (limited space camping on bike)....I do like to capture the side of the TT that appeals most to me, the interesting bikes and great atmosphere/social side of things


That sidecar is a V-Twin...Yamaha MT-01
