Manx Grand Prix ~ Isle of Man

Hey Euro Troopers,

Just got the exciting news that I will be getting over to attend the Manx GP in the end of August. I am not planning on taking my v-strom with me and am hoping that some of you reading this may have ideas for renting a bike once I get there.
Also, any Euro Strommers going?

Joyous

Isle of Man is such a small place - I'd be very surprised if you could hire a bike there. Possibly on the mainland and ride over ( ferry ). Where will you fly into? Mancester is closest big airport, but I know a lot of transatlantic only come into London Heathrow.

Have a look here when you know were your flyign to

Only found this one doing a Strom - http://www.motorcycle-hire.co.uk/touring.htm

Or hire a classic http://www.classicbikehire.com/Bantam.html

( as for going - no , I have to work )
