There is an outside chance that I'm going next year

I do wear a helmet, as a matter of fact, along with other protective gear. But, the fact that you “certainly hope” I wear a helmet is so condescending it makes me want to ride a tricycle completely naked doing doughnuts in your front yard screaming Beastie Boys lyrics at midnight. Trust me, you do not want that. My buttocks are extremely pale and unsightly, especially in moonlight.

I don't bother.

I catch every three words he says....if he's not excited about something. He's near unintelligible unless its a sitdown interview

Nah I won't be driving anywhere, I can do it (and have an international license) but I can't stand driving on the right.



....and wait you have to book the ferries? Without a vehicle?

Any time you want to do anything on or to do with the Isle of Man during tt fortnight you need to book it well in advance . If you want to take a bike and stay in a particular hotel best to book it 12 months in advance . Its a very very big event , europe flocks to it . Its a small sparsley inhabited island the ferrys are the quota system to resrict numbers to a level the island can cope with .

The Island has a total of 688 miles of tarmac road . Half of that is single track roads covered in gravel and sheep . No dual carrigeways . Then add an extra 11000 power rangers on the best and worst machines money can buy . Then add no blanket speed limit on most roads ,a dash of driving on the left .... And let the games begin .

So who do I have to fuck to get a hold of a bike again.

Sounds like driving in Philly

Seriously, Philadelphia has to be the only city I have ever lived in where hitting parked cars is a spectator sport.
