Isle of Mann

Just saw that the Isle of Mann TT 2012 premiers tonight on Velocity Channel.

Always like this race.....I'll tell you this, these guys have some BIG brass ones, amazing speeds.

Enjoy

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way.
I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Re: Isle of Mann

This is excellent news! It would be even better if I received the Velocity channel. All I've seen of this year's TT is Youtube clips.

Just sitting here watching it and thinking about posting when I saw yours.

The riders are incredibly good and incredibly nuts. Big brass ones the size of beach balls if you ask me.

I've wondered the same thing!

Did anyone see the interview with Mark Webber? They asked him if he'd like to make a lap on a bike. He hemmed and hawed a while and basically took about 30 seconds to say NFW.

Re: Isle of Mann

DVRed it yesterday, just watched the sidecars and sportbikes......the passenger in the sidecars have to be a little crazy(maybe more than a little) and I would think pretty strong, to do the maneuvering they do at the speeds...Incredible.

The diver lines look like one continuous line.
