Makes me wish I could ride like that. Damn. I've always loved TT.

Love the shot of the camera under the bike, where you can really watch waht the front suspension is dealing with. Talk about needing to have your shit dialed in.

Cool post!

1. Landing on a carrier at night

2. Riding the TT

That's pretty much it as far as qualifying for Huge Brass Balls status.

Nice vid.

Great vid! The DVD's are worth every penny!!!


Too bad the music svcks. The whole head banger heavy metal put to biker stunting/biker racing/biker posing videos is played out. Always reminds me of all the home shot vids with guys riding over their heads and over double yellow lines. Very squidly.

Man, Ill tell ya the older I get the crazier that race looks to me! LOL!

I'll step right up to the plate and say I have NO desire to ride that course at anything above the posted limit. Seeing how close some of those curbs and buildings are I'd get nothing but negative vibes.

you can compete in the new comers race. I think you'll need an international licence tho (not sure).
A close friend of mine raced there for the first time this year on a stock 03 ZX6rr.
You guys should check out some of the Irish road racing. I always regarded the Irish as a wonderful but slightly crazy nation and watch them race only confirmed it.

Ive had my dose of adrenaline coming too close to Pocono and Daytona's wall (for my comfort level) but that IOM still looks nutty.

You've gone over there a few times why not share you're IOM experience with us?
