    Ok wouldnt mind seeing this thing in real life.

    Who has been?

    What sort of costs are there on basics, EG is everything inflated
    tourists prices?? or just normal what you would expect?

    Things to see there on the island?? Or just the racing??

    Seems there are huge changes coming , probably due to the speed of
    bikes now.. :(

  8. I run an annual IoM TT Tour. With or without your own bike. 2004 is
    all full up.
    2005 is half full.
    2006 - 7 booked so far.
    2007 4 booked and another 18 thinking about it. For 07 I have more
    accommodation (19 ppl) but it's 18kms away at the far end of the
    Island.

    I have bedspace for 24 ppl at a Farmstay B&B close to Douglas which is
    the main centre for the evening entertainment. 20 minute walk to
    Bushy's Tent and a 2 hour stagger home! or 5 minute £5 taxi ride if
    staggering home from the pub is not your thing.

    If you'd prefer to do your own bookings you'd better start now as the
    biggest hassle is actually getting accommodation. I have mine booked
    for the next 5 years for tour groups.

    2007 will HUGE because it's the 100year Centenary and everyone wants
    to go then. Personally I reckon 2007 will be a pain in the arse.

    If you want more info drop me a note to dave(AT)getrouted.com.au or
    call me on 03 9331 0947

    Kind regards
