Looks pretty booked up unless going from Ireland. I see that they start pre booking for the next years ferry on the first Monday after/on the TT. Maybe have to pre book and go next year. Will look when I get paid.

If we're talking influences, for me it's the smoothness of riding.
Don't much care for speed or getting my knee down, but when you take a few bends with a beautiful flow and everything just comes together in one graceful movement, it feels fantastic to me.
It's the same reason I'd love to do free-running. Just the simple act of moving over, under, around and through anything in your path, all as one, big dance. It's amazing. (Y)

Love a nice traffic free run straight across a roundabout, like a chicane.

I must say, Russ (Mr RoadcraftNottingham) is a pretty influencial to me.
If he said riding off a cliff was a good idea, I probably would ;)

I got his autograph :D
But then it rubbed off :(

I love watching riders power through 'moments'.

In my 3 and a bit years riding i've had a few 'moments' and always found it had to slow down, take a deep breath and calm myself down.

Not been to the tt, been to scarborough plenty for the road races, really fancy going out to Ireland again to watch the road racing there, it's no where near as busy or as commercial as the tt has become.

yeah the notrhwest road races, ulster gp or skerries to name but a few, no commercialism, everyone there is ACTUALLY into the road racing, im not a fan of mgp or track racing to be honest, i appreciate what they can do but it doesnt really excite me, the road races make the hair on the back of your neck stand up :p and scott im in the same predicament i wont get paid till 1st may, hoping they will still be places available, the other thing you could do is ring steam packet during practice week and see if there is any cancellations, you will have hound them though lol, my only issue is having a licence that only allows me to ride in the republic of ireland, meaning if i was to meet a checkpoint over the border on the way to larne, i would be driving without a licence, and prob be put off the road and get an endorsement, so i might try go through dublin, cause the chances of bein stopped on IOM are slim once you behave yourself, off the mountain stretch of course :p also if i was to crash into anyone on IOM i would be uninsured >.< risks im not overly pleased with but have to take it as it comes :)

also the TT has staggered starts, most of the irish races all start at once which makes for some crazy action :)
