  • i'm going to double dip here...

    i posted this in the thread below about favorite bike movies...this is not a movie but a documentary about the isle of man tt...as i stated below it has great footage, bits of dialog from men that i have been watching for years and again, a few cautionary tales...it is very good, head and shoulders above even my favorites from many years of watching...everyone chimes in, owners, riders, the race officials and marshals that line the roads during the races...if you have 45 minutes and want/need a lift, here it is...zp...

    Ive been watching the TT for years now and it still blows my mind. The hell with moto gp and supermotos. This is what true skill looks like. 190 mph inches from a concrete wall or a house and flat out.
    I am a huge fan of Ian Hutchinson. If you have a minute look that guy up.
    im getting goose bumps already

      Hey, watch it! Valentino Rossi has mad skills. Maybe these IOM guy have bigger balls though. I wonder if a Moto GP rider has ever competed there? Be interesting to see what they could bring to the table.

      i know ian from the videos...and fp...the people rossi and the other motogp rider ride for would not allow it...too much money invested in their employees and it's a different mind set...zp...

    Get about 2 feet from the screen and watch the on-board stuff. It'll make you dizzy! I only have 1 desire to leave U.S. soil, and it would be to attend IOM.

      bucket list fp...i would take the cbr there this year and ride the week before the races if i could...maybe i should start one of those "give me your money so i can live the dream" things you hear about...advertise it as i'm a war hero dying of an old war wound and riding to make money for the starving children of the rsc...makes you want to cry doesn't it...

    There's no doubt the Moto GP guys have gobs of raw talent, but the TT is about metric shit tons of raw *nerve*. Racetracks are a sterile environment compared to the constant hazards of the TT, and it's run flat out nearly 95% of the time, mile after mile... On a race track its maybe a few seconds. These guys are on a whole other planet.

    Just watched this last night. Fascinating. Thanks for posting this. Not very often that I can watch a whole video like this but I’m happy I did.

    Has me itching to go do track days this summer

    That’s the one. Just found out I owe Uncle Sam a large sum of money so no new bikes for me unfortunately.

          Yeah I watched a second iom video and thought I was posting it and utube sent the first one through...I forget about that, and I don’t get why it does that...

        Doc...maybe it’s been posted, maybe not...utube will just keep rolling videos until you turn them off and I watched at least 3 when I copied to paste earlier...this one is a forward view of the fastest lap (at the time but how often does that number change)...Michael Dunlop...

          That was cool. No music or other BS, just a bugs eye view. Freaks me out every time they get a tank slapper, air, or wheelie at over 150 mph. I think my plumbs would shrivel and go back up inside me if that ever happened to me.
