I am pretty much annoyed by people taking photos of myself but that is probably because working on the cruise ship, guest are constantly photographing us like animals in the zoo. Since I am working there I didn’t take one voluntary photo of myself. It is one of very few thinks that annoy me.
Luckily no one want to take photo of my bike (it is ugly child),

There are photographers regularly at the entrance to Rivi Barn and also on the Horseshoe pass, they have websites where you can view the photo's and buy a copy if you like. There was one at the Goose neck for the TT last year as well.
I've had people ask me if they can take a photo when I've been parked up before now and others that just snap away, it really doesn't bother me, what does bother me is when someone watches you put your ear plugs in, helmet on, start the bike and then come over and start asking questions. bast*rds :(
