Jurby Festival

During our first visit to the IOM in 2009, we attended the inaugural Jurby Festival, a Classic Bike extravaganza. It takes place in the north end of the island at an old airfield.  In 2009, 5,000 people were there, but it has grown to over 15,000, 
quickly establishing itself as THE event to attend.
Needless to say, there were thousands of bikes there.  Some to do laps around the runway, but the bikes in the parking lot was a sight to see!

just loved the colour combo on this one!

 This pair were very much in love!
Bikes of all ages were there to be admired

I particularly loved this little passenger
I even got to rub shoulders with the legendary Sammy Miller, who won several off-road world championships in the 50's & 60's.  He now owns a well known classic motorcycle museum in the south of England, open to the public..
A replica bike from the old movie "No Limit'" showed off around the track
During 'Paddock Day', we were entertained by his musical talents!
Stay tuned for excitement from the starting line!
