Isle of Man TT Tour 2019!
Hello TT Fans.
The time is finally here to start making some concrete plans for the 2019 TT. Sorry for a late start, we’ve been rather busy this year and have just now verified our schedule for next year. I am working up a definite cost list which I'll forward soon. I also provide a step by step guide to preparing for the trip including a suggested personal supply list. We are roughly looking at $6500 plus flights. If booked early I’ve seen flights go for $800 round trip. I can also provide this service if needed. Upgrades are also available on bikes and accommodations. Prices will be for double occupancy in London, Nottingham and Yorkshire. The trip requires 14 days+ in and out as we will spend 7+ at the TT. No other tour gives you this much time on the island. Our closest competitors are quite a bit more expensive and do not include the London, Brooklands, Nottingham or Yorkshire experience. You will also be introduced to and be a part of a real live TT race team during your stay. There will be exclusive meet and greet events with TT celebs and more. We order ferry passes early this year, May 21st and require a non refundable $500 deposit per person. The remainder of the balance is required in 2 payments, one by December and the final payment due end of February. Other than the initial deposit, the trip is insured for you incase of emergency. We provide Medflight to assure your safe return to the states just in case needed. This trip is designed for motorcyclist but we have had interest in people joining by car also. If you would be interested in this option, please let me know.
I done quite a few of these U.K. bike trips now and have connections and information to provide an amazing motorcycle trip experience I don’t think you will find anywhere else at any price. I provide the basic option bikes, accommodations, trip insurance, emergency med flight and all the information needed. I’m with you every step of the way. Guest are responsible for bike deposits and personal expenses like food, etc.
Just to make it clear I will assist in all plans, accommodations, ferry booking, flights, etc. but you will ultimately be responsible for yourself and belongings. There will be no hand holding or coddling. We will have itineraries that will require a tight schedule to get there and back safely. Once on the island you can do things at your own pace, run with the group or explore on your own.
The basic package includes camping as this provides a very economical and in my opinion the most fun way to experience the TT. We provide all basic equipment, tent, pad , sleeping bag. Yes it rains constantly, but it never seemed to interfere with any activities or dampen spirits and just adds another aspect to the journey. If you would prefer lodging, for an additional fee I can arrange anything from a snooze box up to a grand estate on the coast.
We will plan on renting bikes in London with a wide variety for you to choose from. The most basic bike option is covered in the cost. If you wish to have an upgrade, price varies widely with a naked Honda Hornet being the most economical and practical bike available. There are BMW GS' and Ducati's available but they run double the price and have a huge deductible. Included are several days in London for sight seeing, a trip to the fabulous Brooklands museum and a ride up to scenic Nottingham home of Robinhood and the Yorkshire Dales with a stay in an antique pub before off to catch the ferry in Haysham.
Also in the works are several U.K. trips to Goodwood for the Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival plus a few more surprises.

If you know of anyone else who would be interested, please put them in touch with me. We require a minimum of 6 riders and have a max of 12 to keep things on track and personal. This promises to be a trip of a lifetime, hope you can join us!
