In 2007 the IOM TT has its centanary. I'm thinking of going. But I don't just want to fly there and ride. Oh no. Jet lag. And look at all that ridin there is to be had.
So leave Jan 2007. Get on bike in India and ride. Nepal, Paki, Iran and Morocco. With short bits in Greece, Italy, France, Spain then Britian and onto the ferry to the IOM. Going on past peoples trips - 6 months $10,000 minimum.
Sounds like a good plan Frank. Just be aware though that both sailings on the steam packet ( racket ) and accomadation on the Isle are fast booking up. Although camping shouldn't be a problem. I know this because I began to make plans a few months back to crate the Guzzi up and attend for 07 as well. But thought better of it later on. Seeing as I have alredy attended in both 97 and 02 ( on the Guzzi ). I am aware of a number of other Aussie going across, so you should hear some familar accents.
Hope it goes well,
i was thinking of doing the same myself. don't have a route planned out yet but was basically melb -IOM. was on the IOM 4 the TT this year and absolutely loved it. can't wait 2 go back! well i have an R6 at the mo, which i'm in the process of selling and finding a bike 2 go longdistance on. but the prob is i'm only 5'3" so i can't touch the ground on most of them. so if ur still looking 4 a travel partner let me no.
Unfortunatly it is winer up there then ... so being a warm person I think I'll try to avoid that snown and ice stuff. Think the two kiwis maybe still going that way. But I've heard nothing from them other than their original post.
So Plans B-D are Africa based ... summer = warmth. And then return through to India?
Email me if your more than 75% interested? You may like to do the African section and then fly back home, or fly to the UK and ride back to India... Note that booking on the ferry now for 2007 would be fairly full!
The local Manx folk will doubtless be able to source you tickets.
You must be joking ! I have many friends in the Isle of Man since I have been going since 1980 and Marshalled from 1986, they are treated by the Steam Packet Co just as bad as the rest of us. The SPC are trying to stretch my holiday from 2weeks to 3, and still can't give me a price for my van (to carry dirt bikes) they say it will be 'around' £400 return! last year, same van £286 return....they are killing the TT....judging by demand camping may also be a problem.....so wild camping may have to be a possibility....Good luck
