    We had a brilliant time in Ramsey. The weather was great and we only had to use the van on one rainy Saturday. It should be called the Isle of Van, there seems to be no restriction on wild camping any where. Although we did spend a whole £16 for the fortnight stop over in Mooragh Park it really wasn't necessary.
    The racing was awesome and the new bike went good, even with us two fatty's on it.

    Glad you enjoyed it. There are restrictions on Vans, and more seem to be creeping in. Langness was a great place to spend the night until about a year ago. Now concrete posts have been put in to stop vans from getting in.

    If you read the signs on the Sulby reservoir it say no overnight parking, you can safely ignore that though as it is no policed.

    Glad you had a good time :)

    The IOM is on my to do list,I have done most things but never the Rest!:(

    And I think I would do the Manx gp rather than the TT as would be less manic !

    Must get it sorted!(y)

    You must be getting old!
    The Manx is better and for the real motor cycle enthusiasts - don't leave it to long, it not even expensive.

    Photos - bit overcast but warm and it always brightened up.

    So pleased you enjoyed it, I live in Ramsey and walked to the Mooragh park many times with the grandchildren. It's a nice place to be. I must have walked past you to my friends Damon Daybreak just a bit further along the park, it can be seen in your photo. The Classic TT is fast becoming a great event in it's own right. And as you say, the weather was good, which made it even better. I should have scrounged a coffee from you. Next time eh?

    Would love to do the TT but from what I hear its to busy in every way,and
    the Manx gp is less so!:)

    And the pubs would be easier to get a drink at the Manx!(y)
