Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

TT or MGP 2017

Post by ratatooie on Wed 05 Apr 2017, 2:29 pm

Are any of you planning to head to the TT or MGP this year? If so give me a shout and I will be happy to give you tips of where to watch, eat, drink and ride.

This TT is shaping up to be amazing this year with Dunlop moving to Suzuki, Connor to Padgets, Guy Martin back with a Honda and Molyneux to Yamaha. The launch event last month was great too. 

I usually let my house out, but I have people in this year for TT so can't offer that to people unfortunately.

One of my mates here marshals religiously. He loves it although there are a few incident black spots that he tries not to go to if at all possible. He says you get to watch at some cracking places no one else gets to. Only downside is that you are locked in for the day. I'd like to marshal but can't guarantee the time off work.

The hillclimb at the end of this month and various rallys are great too.

Is that the VMCC one or the Lap of Honour? The LoH was great last year if it is the one I'm thinking of, although we were watching at Sulby and one of the guys came off at the corner Sad
