Cool Tt 07

Hope you have a boat booked and some accom/tent, I will be marshalling at Dorens bend just after Ballig bridge, you are most welcome to join us to watch the racing from there(private drive) just ask any marshals to point you in my direction, just say Dave from London.

TT meet-up

It's always difficult to arrange to meet up at anytime during the TT as there is always so much on, I can't make a pub for races as I will be on Dorans bend marshalling....No pub and a bit isolated. one other thing I did not think the UK BM club held TT meets anymore. Perhaps we can meet more than once for any that can't make a particular time/place. Where will you be at any known time?, BM meet(if ones on) Tuesday race week I'll be at the Crosby for Laverda meet... post more nearer the time.

The BMW Club :: View topic - BMW Club TT 2007 Natter-Meet

"Liverpool Arms, Baldrine between Onchan and Laxey. Thursday 7th June 2007. I'd say from about 1030 " ...


I'd suggest not meeting with them .. I'm told that pub is small and may well have problems if all the bm people go there anyway.

I think you'll find any time will have something on somewhere .. it may well be difficult to isolate a time .. then there is the place problem ..

Cheers Frank. Yes the liverpool arms is quite small and also on a nasty bend where a badly ridden sports bike could easily 'join' you in the seating area out front ! The BM uk club for a good few years had a big meet every TT at The Glen Helen but don't know why it was stopped.
