Nice vid, good soundtrack too!!! Thanks John for putting that one up.
I am a MAJOR fan of the IOMTT I have been following it since 89 when my dad indtroduced me to it....I was only 6 years old then, still hooked. Plan to go soon with my two boys to enjoy the unmatched speed and thrill of it all.

You have to go there to really experience it. It's unbelievable. Used to be able to catch the ferry over from Liverpool and have a blast. There are no speed limits on the island apart from in the villages. Just have to make sure that speed never overtakes your skill, otherwise you're a dead man up on the mountain.

I'd really like to see that in person. Difficult to do from what I'm told though, books a couple years or more in advance I heard. At the dealer meeting earlier this week, I was talking with some fellow dealers and enthusiasts and most were humbled if not downright agast at the TT and some of the stuff that occurs during it. I personally feel it's the epitome of bike racing and it's purest form.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
