Thanks very much. Last time we went, I lost my wife in the shops, couldn't ring her and had to buy a Manx Telecom SIM card so I could.  Mind you, a rant at Virgin on our return yielded a disproportio...

I'm very sad to hear this. I have a particular fondness for 1960s works Hondas, and there are now so few of their riders left from the era. RIP.
