Need help from bike/rider on Isle of Man this week!
Hi, not sure about the appropriate place to post this so I'll try here.
I'm a filmmaker filming the Relentless Suzuki superbike team from Northern Ireland this season (both BSB and road racing) and we're headed to the Isle of Man to shoot a TT recce this weekend (leaving this evening, hope to be filming Thursday through Saturday, March 18-20, 2010).
I am in need of some assistance from a safe, generous soul who might already have a largish touring or dual sport type bike on the IOM right now who might be interested in spending part of a day (probably Friday) helping me film one of the racers riding the TT course (not race speed, mind you).
I need to film from the pillion seat alongside the racer, and my needs are specific to the point that it needs to be a good pillion seat, I need a top box (no panniers, but pannier frames are a help), and you don't mind if I sit backward while I film. Unfortunately, plans to get my mate to IOM with his big BMW GS with whom I usually do this kind of work fell through because of a lack of transport options. Relentless Suzuki are attempting to make alternative arrangements for me but none have been confirmed, and I'm worried someone will turn up with a sport bike with no top box... and that won't work for me.
It should be good fun, and if you have the right type of bike and you're interested, please email me: mollystack @ gmail . com
Many, many thanks,
