Isle Of Man TT Racing

Don't know how many on here have any interest in this but honestly how could you not be.

The racing of the Isle Of Man TT.

Youtube has some of the most amazing footage I have ever seen.

Well over 200 men have lost their lives racing this race that dates back to the early 1920's.

I have posted a link down below.

Many amazing video's to check out.

Enjoy

I have a whole lot more guts than I have, and I really give kudos to the side car racers.

WTF, racing with sidecars? Those guys doing gymnastics on the sidecars and going around corners are insane!

A riding buddy of mine had an uncle that raced at Isle of Man. He died there as have many. Nothing like watching it. Very exciting and I don't have balls big enough!

I’m impressed with the motorcycle cops that can go around cones but come on.

Speeds of 200 mph on a normal road.

I was a MX rider my whole life and I’ve had my fair share of crotch rockets but these guys have real skills.

The old footage in the 1920’s the top speeds where in the 60’s & 70’s mph.

Those old timers were pioneers of this sport.

Could you imagine what they would think if the top speeds these guys are hitting in today’s times.

Crazy

there's been a movie out since 2014 about 2 sets of dunlop brothers and the isle of man TT race

i think it's called "Road" and it was on netflix for awhile.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3546370/

its an addiction to those who choose to ride it

Yeah love Isle of Man , my budd from Australia went last year and snagged me a Tshirt , some decals and patches , went one time years ago .. there are plenty of youtube videos on the races ..

Joey Dunlop is one of the guys , he died several years back racing . He was good . Watch some interviews and videos of Guy Martin , he is a card ..
