These guys are fearless, and the bystanders along the route are nuts!

A true Motorsport that nothing rivals it. Speed+Skill=Racing warrior! Man, i wish i could take my sport bike over at Isle of man and have a go at it. That would be worth risking death for me. If i die, i would truly die with a smile on my face

Or if you crash and don't die, a permanent smile on your face as you drink your breakfast through a straw, since you can only move your face muscles after breaking your spine...

You would be fine. They average 130mph per lap. You would probably average about 60.

some guys have hunting skills, some have kung fu skills and these guys have racing skills with balls of steel. Unfortunately, I just realized i don't have any of it.
