  1. I would appreciate some thoughts please : I'm 68, almost 69 with no underlying health problems I'm aware off, my wife is 71, relatively fit but received a warning letter from the govt about being a risk etc. She, however has contacted shingles a couple of weeks ago even though we have self isolated since 25 Mar. Do i go out or fall under the guidance she was issued as well ? Your thoughts please
  2. I had hoped that once it reached here people would wake up - it doesn’t seem to have! i have family just across the water in Dumfries and Galloway, they had the first case on Wednesday, they now have 13 !
  3. I might be wrong, if I am I’m sure someone will put me right : but if the TT is cancelled and the Island is open there will be no claims, the only way they will be able to claim anything is if the island is shut ? Then they can claim for the travel and accommodation but only if the FCO say it’s not safe
  4. Quick question : Do any of you take out travel insurance when you go to the UK ? I imagine very few of us do, subsequently how many Uk bikers take it out to come here ? So even if the TT is cancelled I think a large proportion will still make the journey as they will have paid and without insurance might as well still visit. just my thoughts
  5. I’m slightly confused by most of the comments and the direction this forum is taking, this was a ‘competition’ by a major, if not THE major motor cycle magazine in the UK, they decided that the Sound was a worthy contender and they themselves nominated them, it had nothing to do with the Sound. How many of the contributors to this forum are bikers and have actually been to the Sound over TT week ? The area is full of very happy bikers who make the Sound their destination of choice. Bikers like to go to somewhere where they can meet likeminded people, relax, talk bikes and generally enjoy wha
  6. Just a starter: if the proposed new customs border is agreed could this be a boost or pain for the Island !
  7. I’m still owed £17,000 from flight support, who were tied in to Euromanx. I’m not holding my breath !
  8. Is it still 1 April ?
  9. Is this the security as in baggage checks etc ? If so I thought that was already ‘private ‘ ?
  10. Because it’s too cold !
  11. After all the ‘publicity ‘ over the speed limit on Richmond Hill anyone who gets done for speeding there deserves all they get , I always get a queue behind me as i set my car to 30 when I get to the limit , I can see it annoys some people but tough, I’m not getting done to pacify them ! Just to clarify I’m not some old bugger who deliberately drives slow to annoy people, I enjoy driving and am a confirmed petrol head, my car is a V8 and gets driven as it should where possible, but as I said above it’s been well publicised that the police will be on Richmond Hill
  12. Yes, but I didn’t have 4 o levels !
  13. I left school at 14, worked in an accountants office until I got bored and joined the RAF at 19, I served 22 years and reached a high level as a senior nco, when I retired and returned to the Island there was a job advertised in the tourist board, the post required 4 ‘o’ levels, despite my service history and being Manx born I wasn’t considered as I only had 2 O levels ! The rank I attained required more than any O levels but the rules said 4 O levels.
  14. Budgets need to be spent ! In my previous RAF life I was involved in producing many budgets, any areas that didn’t spend the current years allowance would Suddenly NEED new cars or equipment before the year end. The most memorable one was in Saudi, where 2 new Range Rovers, a Rover SD1 and a Daimler XJ12 !! Were needed before the year end, the reasoning was to fly the flag ! Ironic that both the Daimler and Rover blew up within 3 months, but at least they matched the budget !
  15. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but a speed limit was put on Ballamodha following a couple of fatal accidents, I seem to remember that in addition to driving too fast for their ability, both times the driver hadn’t passed their test and obviously weren’t insured, they also happened at night time. I’m currently teaching two of my grandchildren to drive, in addition to them having ‘proper’ lessons, they are progressing very well and I’m quite confident and relaxed when out with them, I’m teaching them to actually drive and not just pass their test ! They go to an official instructor to hel
