5-6 weeks away...nae that long to go really. I'm going on my T though.....as I'm only going on my own this year. Well I'm going with another person that likes to duf around as well but he has his own bike. It's nae a TRX though.

Will you be travelling light and trying some of the course out ? What kind of luggage do you use on the T ? I read a tale somewhere that a Rentura? system fell off one of them and left a skid mark on the road ?

Probably going light due to no Fifi with me. I always take a ride round the course.....I have managed some very quick times in the past. Currently my record for start to finish is just under 34 minutes.:) I'm not called Slomo for nothing.
Yes, I use Ventura stuff. It's very good and I've not had any real problems with it yet other than losing the small pin to tighten the securing bolts.

No, I'm not, much as I'd love to. 

The timing of the NW, other things which always happen in May and the TT (which I never miss) mean that there just isn't enough time.  One year, I will have to make the time, though.  Let me know which year it's not going to pour with rain - I'll go then!   :152:
