Sorry slightly off topic but I went a few years ago with 11 mates, all on enduro bikes and all in one 3.5 tonne truck. An absolute blastA:

I stayed at http://www.glenloughcampsite.com/index.htm in 2005 there is hard standing and hookups for vans you can get a cheep meal a night, if you watch from union mills church you get a seat ,sandwich plus a peice of cake and use the toilet for less than a fiver. The bus stops at the enterance of the site so you can get into Douglas and catch the electric tram up to the mountain .

I go every year too greenlaning, we try to limit the number to 10 as to big a group tends to upset the treehuggers, i can get 3 bikes, 3 men and gear in the van just and it is just the best fun.

the ferry is expensive, I went over in the mini last year and it cost £180 with two people but that was off peak just after the TT and a special discount had been arranged as it was a classic mini event being held on the island. This year it's £220 because we are going in the summer holidays... but wait for it, to take the van with the mini on a trailer, £480!

Just the best week ever isn't it, you can get anywhere on the island. Good up the mouintains but scarey when the fog comes in and you have to find your way down.

We done a beech run, something like 15 miles from where we got on to where we left. True dakar style lol. Awesome.

I'll load a couple of old photos up later in the week when I get them from my mums. XR400's were the tool to have then:D

We live up at Stourscoumbe, do see a blue T4 down at truscotts each day but obviously not you then..... Have a look at my build thread and that will show you our van which you may have seen driving around.
