First Ride on the Dominator
I picked up my '88 NX650 Dominator on the 3rd June 2004, and did a couple of small trips around parts of the island during the next few days.
On the 5th June, I rode up to Ramsey and back to get the feel of the bike, then on the 6th I rode over to a friend's place in Peel.
We wandered around the Manx Classic Vehicle Show for a while - unfortunately, less bikes than last year, but they did have one of these:
A Sammy Miller trials machine, based on a Honda 175, I think
Honda 250 (Dream?)
Got home from work on the 8th June, was a little tired but needed a boost so when on a gentle dawdle around some of the back lanes, and down to a small bay, Port Grenaugh on the east coast of the island
Even had some little visitors as I took in the aromas of sea and seaweed
As you can see, they've lost a fair bit of their grounds in recent years:
That's the end of the runway for the island's airport!
