Have you done TT before? If not be prepared to be impressed I think McGuinness holds the current lap record in the Senior; image AVERAGING 132miles an hour over 4 x 38 mile laps on standard roads and lanes. You have to be in awe:)

If you have some days spare in your schedule maybe a few of the UK guys can hook up for a ride in the Cotswolds etc?

That's why I posted. I'm up for some meet-ups. Haven't done the TT before but have since I first saw clippings on TV back in the 60's

Lymington

Hi

Where are you staying in Lymington, assuming it is the one in The New Forest down south?

Are you hiring a bike and riding to the TT or getting a bike once there? If you need one whilst in Lymington let me know. My business is based about 30 minutes drive from there and can always help you out with anything bike related whilst you are over here.

Appreciate the offer. I'm staying with an old friend and his family in Lymington, he has a Machine Shop business in Totton.
I've "hired" a bike in Bournemouth, a Suzuki DL1000. I have one here as a second ride and am familiar with it. And the price was right.

Mac has a LOT of bikes under his "command" (the largest fleet in the UK), and most are in Bournemouth :)
