These articles will take you on a visit to Britain's National Motorcycle Museum where the 500 motorcycles on display will reveal how far back into the nineteenth century motorcycling's roots extend and then transport you to the land of Guinness, Gaelic, and Green where the world's fastest growing economy is making motorcycling affordable to the vibrant Irish people in an ancient land of hardship, suffering, and winding, narrow, cliff top roads overlooking the Irish Sea.
BRITAIN’S NATIONAL MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM
MOTORCYCLING IN IRELAND
& Isle Of Man
You've heard about it and you know it's special, but what you don't know is that it won't last forever. Forces bigger than motorcycling are threatening this two-week festival of speed. The 150-mph run down bumpy and crowned Bray Hill, three feet in the air at Ballaugh Bridge, and flat out at nearly 200 mph through the mist and over the "damp bits" on Snafell Mountain are sights you can't see anywhere else in the world and they're all on the endangered list. Add the stunt rider shows, the drags, the Ramsey bike show, Mad Sunday, the crazy crowds, and the nightly smoky burn outs on Douglas' Queen's Promenade and you've got something that's not to be missed. If you want to know how to get there, where to stay when you get there, and what to see when you get there, then you'll want to read this before you get there.
