I will be traveling from Heidelberg, Germany to the Isle of Man. Plan to ride my R 1200 R to Calais, catch a ferry to Dover. Ride to Liverpool and catch a ferry to Douglas. I already have a reservation. After the TT I will ride to Le Mans for the 24 Hour race. I am interested in advice on the most interesting routes and whether others will be making a similar ride prior to the TT and Le Mans.
