    Some great footage...

    Haven't had much chance to ride the bike this year, but just got sent this. The IoM TT is on this week and this footage from last year catches the thrill really well...

    How is this race possible? Public road racing for autos was eliminated so long ago for safety reasons. What are their speeds? No deaths? Doesn't seem real. That is one serious drug.

    I believe there are deaths. Lots of them if I am getting my memories straight.

    The Isle of Man TT is insane - people die almost every year.

    The Isle of Man is also a tax haven!
