I'm thinking about it.
Not sure if I'll be on the bike though, prolly the train or enlisting a mate to drive me.

I wish, going twice, always go up with a few of us and find it knackering trying to look at everything in one day and the amount of years we have gone never watched any of the shows, and now its included in the ticket price we usually look around the bikes and watch some shows on day 1 then day 2 look around the bargains :D
And when we book a hotel in advance its less than £20!

I braved it On the weekend.

Left mine at 23:30 and did 70 miles, then left this morning and did the 90 mile trip home as it was more fun :D

And its only 1 hour to Birmingham from mine.

I'm going on Friday 30th with my brother and my uncle. Won't be on the bike though, no storage space for all the crap I'll inevitably buy up there :D

Going on the 2nd with my cousin and having a long weekend in Birmingham for my best mates 21st. I'll be the guy there looking very ill and stinking of booze.

For anyone interested the organisers have said they are offering a parking refund because they think the NEC is a rip off (which it is...) if you pay on the day you will get a £2 refund inside and if you've preordered parking you can get a £1 refund!
