classic tt / manx g.p.















sunday, that'll be the day of the jurby festival of motorcycling then, i headed out on the ducati from port st, mary over the mountains, through foxholes and joined the tt course at ballacraine, whatever you have heard about the isle of man wouldn't prepare you for what i saw on this day, the scenery? holy shit, acres of purple heather, green, rolling hills and the ever present atlantic ocean, wooded glades and little hamlets, tree lined tunnels of ancient oak's and switch-back hairpin bends, stone walls, church yard's, grave stones leaning at 45 degree's, wild garlic and tree fern's, the things you never experience on four wheels, live and exclusive to two-wheeled travellers only, jurby was a shock to the system, a world of motorcycling smorgasboard of motorcycling flavours, the worlds best moto guzzi?, beemer racer?, seeley commando?, vello racer?, saab car engined based stroker?, commando and rocket three's? nsu?, laverda s.f.c?, 350 'macchi?, treble-eight?, ducati 160?, desmo racer? oh yeah..............
