    If a guy doesn't have huge balls and nerves of steel, he should not enter this race!

    I really dig the super slow motion action of the bikes suspension working and always look forward to sidecar races. The times are insane nowadays.

    Once I watched a report on tv 'bout the TT and when the races were finished they released the track and the visitors on bikes made their own 'races' - in a curve 5 or 6 bikers crashed and the camera recorded the bodies rolling on the ground with broken bones and injuries screaming in pain for emergency doctor...same thing every year.:banghead:

    Another rider lost his young life today in qualifying. Sad day for his family, friends and fans of the sport and race.

    If you look at the stats, more people get seriously injured every year in horse related sports compared to motorcycle racing.

    A second rider lost his life today. The course is not a forgiving one and the competitors need to push the limits of body and machine to come out on top. RIP.

    Yeah, that 's some of the most dangerous racing on the planet for sure and I'm surprised there isn't more deaths every year from it.
