Yes all you revheads out there, it's on again, so watch it on free to air if ya lucky enough to get it, otherwise settle back on pay tv.
Matt I'am GREEN with envy, that trip to the IOM was probably the highlight of my motorcycling life. ENJOYWell boys, I'm sitting here in the Claremont Hotel in Douglas, Isle of Man and surfing my favorite gun porn site....and I see this post. I've been riding for a while and both me and my lady ride BMWs. When my lady found out that one of my bucket list items was to see the Isle of Man TT races she booked our trip a year in advance and surprised me last Christmas!
The races are absolutely bonkers crazy and far faster and more dangerous than anything you see on TV. It's just mental. We did a lap of the course with 11 time winner Phil McAllen which was simply fascinating. He described in detail every inch of the course and what is going through the mind of a racer. As he said, the winners pin it and the losers back off the throttle.
Hope you get to do this one day, it is worth every dime.
Ditto that! I would think the Manx GP would have a lower casualty count: isn't there less chance of rain at the time of year the GP is held, vs. the TT?This race venue is the most dangerous anywhere in the world and since it began in 1911, 242 riders have died in both the TT and Manx Grand Prix races.
I love this event, but pray that no-one will be taken this year.
