Absolutely. I went last year, and just walking around got chatting to Connor Cummins, didn't recognise him at first with the beard, but a real nice guy. Then just round the corner was John McGuiness, just leaning up against the counter signing books. Nothing standoffish about those guys.

Its a great day, wish I could go this year but it might cost me a new Tiger 800!

£1000? Seriously, that's completely ridiculous!

Did it say BMW or Belstaff on it by any chance?

If you like the waxed cotton style, have a look at Merlin gear. It's well made and very reasonable price, proper motorcycle gear with the style rather than the reverse of that by a fashion house.
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

If you shop around you can get that jacket, trousers and some gloves for £2000.
