IOM TT: A Dangerous Addiction documentary

Disregarding that it's from Al Jazeera, it actually is a pretty decent documentary on the IOM TT.

Thanks.

Enjoyed that there.

I plan on jumping on the boat over to the TT next year with a few guys. Never been before, but it is something I have always wanted to go and see, even before I had bikes.

I really have no excuse as I'm only an hours ride away from the ferry port.

It won't be this year, as I have a few tours to do.

I'll be booking it for next year though. The ferries can be expensive, but it will be more than worth it. Also actually staying there is rather cheap.
I won't be taking the SP1 though as the girlfriend wants to go, which means the Blackbird will be on duty for the trip.
