I Can't honestly say! But really, you kind of need a bike...Some of the viewing places require nothing but. If you we're to gwoogly motorcycle rentals Isle of Man , you will find some very decent people to deal with. You will also find that they are almost all booked out, but people drop out for all sorts of reasons. And you don't need a bike EVERY day . Check it out!
And mate, people tend to look after each other.. Just GO.

Just off to the lotto shop which is a funny thing. I have no real interest in money. Why think about something you don't have, eh? But. Seeing opportunity's like this I wish my parents had worked harder.
I hope that wee bike knows what it's in for.

And this guy, who (at the time) I didn't know from Adam,




yet had a pleasant chat as I took pictures of the bike parked next to his spot at the airfield.

Rest of my crappy photos here.

Oh, and there's this:



I'm glad I found this thread. Reminds me that I need to get to the Manx. I understand it's much lower key than the TT weekend. This may be the year.
