Isle of Man with our Ms!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Great few days with splendid fellows! And boy did we eat some great food! Oh and no speed limits (apart from urban roads of course).

Enjoy!

The view from our cottages








The start of the TT Circuit
































Jeremy Clarkson's holiday home




























The Laxey Wheel - World's largest water wheel
















Peel Castle and its resident Moddey Dhoo












Manx lobsters are absolutely amazing!







And the video! If you don't like the music, don't despair, persevere, it gets much much better

Actually, I love that music and fits very well with the first part of video, your M3's music for the second half was also good

Interesting video and cool photos, this time I want to quit my actual job and start a business which all I do will be planning these type of road trips in awsome countries and participate in some of them too
