RE: Well, how good was that then!
We went race week and the following week for a change, so we could get about the Island.  I thought the number of bikes seemed to be up this year as they were everywhere in abundance, which was great. Just my feeling though.
Great racing throughout the week, but as others have said, is the warm up lap really necessary, we have managed a hundred years without it, without problems.  The sidecar parade lap was just a farce and not a patch on parade laps of the past.
Another gripe was the official TT Merchandise that was being offered. Tee shirts at £26 that one bloke said he would not even clean his bike with. Very poor quality, overpriced and very little choice.  People like to take home souvenirs such as tee shirts, but they hate being ripped off. One shop in Ramsey selling them had price tags of £20 clearly changed in biro to £26. Needless to say, I did not buy one. 
Had a piece of luck on the Friday.  As I was in the car and parking had been nearly impossible at most places, I went to the field at Sulby Bridge and as luck would have it, a cooporate event was being dismantled, but the stand was still there and they said we could use it for free. Hardly anybody in it and a great view right by the 300 yard marker board.  Parked right by the stand as well, so went back Saturday for the Senior. Had a great day and met a lovely gent from Gallway and his son.
