Isle of Man TT

Watching TT 3D: Closer to the Edge again and I'm beating myself up for not knowing about or visiting the Isle of Man when I lived in England. Would LOVE to meet Ian Hutchinson, Conor Cummins, Guy Martin, John McGuinness, Michael Dunlop, or so many other amazing racers.

How many people here have made it to the TT and met their hero? I'm sure having the opportunity to sit down with one of these racers would be awe inspiring and incredible.

Aye, been there....






Heroes










A bit younger then (and a recalcitrant LeMans....)




They donot party these days anymore like they used too....




some seating is now deemed too dangerous...



they may have point, but that IS the point of the TT...




close to the edge





No digital cameras back then...

Wow Dutchy, great pics! Typically seen with dangerous sports these days, organizations intervene and put safety regulations on damn near everything. The bright side is, I have no doubt the restrictions and safety standards now save lives but there is a disconnect between the racers and fans now as fans really don't have the opportunity to get up close and personal to their heros anymore.

I'm booked again for next year, roll on can't wait. Highly recommend to everyone to go at least once, problem is you'll want to go again and again.
