That is either the most subtle gloating ever or a really futile cry for sympathy. A bad day at the IOM is better than a good day at work, enjoy!
As this this is a bucket list item for myself and probably many others please share all the highlights, including the miserable ones.

Photos of the paddock would be great! They still let fans wander through don't they or has corperate influence begun charging for that too.

Just got back to the land of the living :) Great 10 days on the Island, Got in some great racing, The riders had a lot of complaints with the lack of practice due to the rain, Most of the race cards went ahead though, Mad Sunday was cancelled as race schedule was moved up to Sunday,
Got to see the racing this year at the the top and bottom of Bray Hill, Conquer fields, The gooseneck, creg-ny-baa and Ballaugh bridge, Great having my buddy who has lived there for 24 odd years and knows every nook and cranny on the island,
Roll on 2019...

Yep, the TT is good fun and it seems once is not enough. :D

I've been twice and I'd certainly go again. The wife has been once and she def wants to go again. ;)

Crappy weather for sure, but you must have still had a great trip, you can't beat local knowledge no matter where you go. I've nearly finished watching the full iTV coverage, shame Hutchy broke his leg (again) and McGuinness was sounding like it was the end of his career in the interviews.

I love the TT trips, Any trip there is class, rain or sun... :smt023
Poor Hutchy, He was a lucky man, Looks like either a puncture or the tire came off the rim, Sadly, 3 racers lost their lives, The downside of the island, One of them, Alan Bonner was a local to my sister in Ireland, Tragic.

Note sports 2018 package VIP Vll is sold out already - is it the value cause its not certainly the cheapest package by far. Is it because of Sefton Hotel's location?

Got this tin poster for the garage fm Santa. Keeps me dreaming after a hard day at the office. Good therapy - more practical than fragrant candles unless they smell of castor oil. Actually met a local South African gent who rode a Manx Norton 500, as a privateer twice (1960-61). Help me bleed the brake on my LC. Small world.

Interesting to see the TZ750 blow passed his start line partner & others. Link:

P.S. - no goofy music - pure engine.
