Isle of Man 2011

Just gauging some interest here as to who would be up for a trip to the isle of man sometime this year? I already have a couple of mates up for it but thought it would be nice to have a load of us. Costs wouldnt be too high, just ferry, fuel, and food etc. Accommodation is up to you, theres plenty of hotels/b+bs and camping areas.
Theres some info here http://www.isleofman.com/index.aspx
And best of all - NO speed limits once you're out of built up areas
We could either do the TT course or just fanny about and find some ace roads
Let me know if you're interested, when would be the best time of year to suit the majority and where you would like to stay. Cheers guys ;)

Iv been twice, well worth the trip. Just avoid Liverpool docks as the ramps to get on and off the ferry are too steep for lowered cars (from my experience).
