Yeah! *sigh*

I was just thinking that very thing while watching the 2006 race...

Like the guy on the Suzuki TL (I believe) that got into the worst tank slapper that I've ever seen in my life...eventually crashing into a curb/hedge at about a bazillion miles an hour. And lived. It is shown at about 20 seconds into this video: http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...65&q=iom+crash

superbike2001 WOW. I watched the entire thing!

AZScorpion Kirk Michael (sp?). He hit oil on the road from a competitors bike during practice because the safety marshalls in the area didn't or forgot to put out their flags.....

zen748 Beautiful vid. Thanks nedragr.

Anyone know where on the course he had his crash?

asujosh1 good lord.

I just learned a few things,
  1. I never, never, ever, ever, ever want to run that race. Ever.
  2. Those guys are AMAZING. "you know you are on a good line when you are on the inside of the little yellow grate", um yeah. I barely SAW the grate that he is checking he is inside of at 160MPH.
  3. That is one LOOOOOOOOOONG lap, talk about endurance and knowing some unbelieveable stuff about the track. That is a LOT of corners...
  4. I REALLY want to go watch the race, unreal.
I still can't believe what I just watched...

249 Great article in RRW about Mark Miller's IOM 2006 experience. He said that his TAS Suzuki teammate (on a SB spec 1000) hit 207 mph... wow.
