Couple of pictures from the Manx last weekend. There was a photographer at the Gooseneck, so we bought the photo's as a memento of the trip. Got there Thursday night, late on. The weather was ace all day Friday, until we were on our way back from Ginger Hall to Peel at 9.30pm and me pal ran out of fuel on his YR5, and it began to rain. Saturday it rained all morning until about 2pm and Sunday was good all day. Monday it rained heavily all day and we rode to Douglas to get the Ferry. Worst crossing ever!!! Anyway, Ken lead, with me chasing him:
We did a total 0f 411 miles, Thursday to Monday without a hitch, except the petrol run out.
Nice pics fella I guess you have a new desktop background on your computer now ;D
Went to the TT one year (89 I think) and it took us over ten hours to cross in a force nine gale, we circled a yacht with the mast riped clean off for ages trying to rescue the poor guys who were holding on for deer life but couldn't help so stayed close until the lifeboat rescued them and we went on our way, all crosings were cancelled for 24 hours after we docked Yeah that was quite a bad crossing too !!!!
great pics there billbott what did he charge for them never seen anyone selling these tt week? or am i not looking in the right place? bloody hell splodge that crossing sounded a nightmare!!!
