Haysham Ferry Port to Douglas IOM,

Fri 24 April Arriving Haysham Ferry Port after two hours riding with no problems we start to meet up with other bikers on this trip 12 bikes now with another two off road bikes in a van .Isle of Man has some great off road rides with lots of boggs to cross.

Haysham Ferry Port not the best i have been to but it is the closest to us for the IOM . We must have set off first or we have been speeding all the way

Re: Haysham Ferry Port to Douglas IOM,

You look thinner John. Bad food in Calais?

Nice looking bikes. Looking forward to hearing about your journeys.
