Bad to the ever loving bone!

Got family in Cardiff I'd be interested to know how hard and/or expensive it is
to get accommodations on the island during TT?

Every year? That would be awesome. I hope I can knock it off my bucket list just once!

Great video. The Mountain Course is both spectacular and very unforgiving. The hedges, stone walls and buildings are very close to the edge of the roads and, even in a car at sensible speeds, it can get pretty exciting.

Though I've never been to the TT races (way too many people) I've attended the Manx GP three times and can say it's an unforgettable event. In fact the Isle of Man is unforgettable, motorcycle racing aside.

It's a shame the motorcycle museum that once existed on Snaefel has long since closed. One the flip side, the Manx Heritage Trust has done wonders with the many historic sites that grace the island. It's a great place to visit.

I've had locals tell me that from the top of Snaefel a person can see six kingdoms - Man, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Heaven. I believe they're absolutely correct.

Really GREAT video, but I can't imagine being that side-car "monkey" hanging off in the early part....
