Hello from the Isle of Man

Post by Waggers » Tue Sep 11, 2018 3:44 pm

For many years a Honda C90 has been on my list of things to have, finally found a 1996 c90. I am a happy lad. Thank you for allowing me to join the forum.

Whereabouts on the Island are you located?

Great place by the way. I love the I.O.M whether there are bikes racing or not. 8-)

IExcellent, a short hop from Cronk Ny Mona and Hillberry at TT time, then. 8-)

I expect that the back road from Creg Ny Baa to Laxey is superb on a Cub. :D

Welcome1
I was over on your beautiful island for the Manx GP for the second year running. My pal brought his Monkey bike and I had my C90 with Lifan 110cc motor. We stay in Ramsey, handy for Parliament Square, the Ramsey Sprint etc.
One of the days we rode up the mountain to the Bungalow and took the gated minor road across to rejoin the course near Kirk Michael. A fantastic week with everything we could have wanted-the Jurby Festival and a trip down to visit"Moto Syko" shop near the airport. Met some very interesting characters and sadly the time passed far too quickly. Another favourite ride from Ramsey up to Bride(tearoom!) nr the church where Sir Norman Wisdom is buried and then up to Andreas and the lighthouse looking across the water towards Scotland.
