Isle of man TT.
 
Anyone else has the Velocity Channel? I've been watching the most amazing spectacle ever to be on TV.

For those who don't have cable or the channel here's what your missing.

The side races are nuts, it takes balls to be the passenger. They use their weight to keep the bike on the ground.

I don't get cable :'( by far the ballsiest racers out there. I had a ninja 250 I'd love to do it on, but I'd be going half the speed. On my Ducati, I'm pretty sure I'd die. One of the things on my bucket list is to go watch the Isle of Man though.

Here's another video I found with interviews.

IIRC Jeremy Clarkson does... I've seen the Top Gear eps where they go to the Isle of Man and the roads look like a hell of a lot of fun.

This is one of the most insane motorsports events I've ever seen, these guys have gigantic cojones! I love motorcycles but I ride pretty cautiously, these guys absolutely throw caution to the wind, all out 110% flat out on the edge.

Craziest race ever! I'm so glad Velocity continued covering the TT. [cheers]
