Just a quickie...

Are there packages available to go watch it over there? And... roughly how much?

There are and extremely affordable.  The teensy problem is getting there from SA.  That makes a good quality Chuck Norris style wallet cry in fear.

You can go for the week or the races and get packages between GBP300 - GBP400 per person for the four nights.  Check out the Isle of Man government official website.  Flights, SA to IoM (return) upward of GBP1400 per person.  :-(

Me, I will go next year, even if I have to sell my BMW to 2SD to get the money together.

 Hi Firecoast,

                   Superbike magazine organize a trip every year.

                   They have diferrent packages including one where your bike goes over in a container.

                    Concact the editor, Clinton Pienaar .

I would love to go, but it is one of those things where, for a SAcan, it is very expensive to actually get there and back.

And then do you go to the IOM festival of motorcycling or to the actual TT week?

Definitely on my bucket list.  Being there is reasonably cheap.  Lots of accommodation possibilities and packages at reasonable prices.  Like you said, getting there and back is the super-expensive part.  Because it is so expensive to get there and back, I would reckon you should go for the whole two weeks.
