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.
