    The subject title says it all. This will grab your attention as you

    watch the race. Fatalities have been the norm in the early history of the race and you can see why. Although they now have better protective gear they also travel a lot faster. The shear sensation of speed, the whining of the engines, the crashes, and the danger will keep you glued to the screen, I promise. Crank the sound up, and go to full screen mode-enjoy thrill seekers!

    The Isle of Man TT was for many years the most prestigious motor-cycle race in the world. The racing is held on public roads closed for racing by an Act of Tynwald (the parliament of the Isle of Man ). It is the oldest motor-cycle racing circuit still in use. The official lap record for the Snaefell Mountain Course is 17 Minutes and 12.30 seconds at an average speed of 131.578 mph.

    this looks like fun i hit the rev imiter on my wr on a loose gravel road yesterday at 167kmh it was awsome but i wanted to go faster but i ran out of road and gear ,i've watched the TT races for years and i thought it would be cool to run this race with the sidecar bikes either driver or the dude jumping all over the back .never had a fear of speed driven a car at 275kmh but can't climb a ladder over 10 feet ..over seas is more fun, ontario has to take the pickel out of it ass and have some fun before we're to old or dead ..

    ive owned 20+ bikes .raced gokarts{2 stroke} cars but i had a chance at taking a race bike on a track. ime glad it was open practise. 2 laps in ime dragging my knee 3 laps in ime braking so hard the back wheel comes off the ground. ime feeling confident that mabey i should get into bike racing.then it happens... i get passed like ime riding a friggin bicycle, i think mabey its a different class, when i see how they really take a corner, front and back wheel drift. NO THANKS!! i take the bike back ,i havnt been on one since.thats on a clean race track, these idiots dont even know how clean the corners are or if a dog or person is on the track!!its like watching a train wreckyou turn it on its wrong but you have to watch it!!!! insane.

    Got an old racing buddy from Ireland who has done it on a 125GP and 250 GP bikes. He says it makes Mosport look like a go cart track. It is one thing to learn a 3-5 km track but one this long with the relatively non-existent practice is another thing. He says the first couple of years all he did was pace guys he trusted and pass when they screwed up. He has also done the Ulster GP in Ireland and says it is even more hairy than the IOM.
