great song - best TT clip yet.
Looks almost like a typical BCSB group run to Squish Starfucks
no. if that was so, there'd be thousands of deaths.
Rawdonflyers dad raced on it many years ago, maybe Rawd can elaborate on this ...

I think it would be great to go watch this race in person. Going to have to do that next year!

Great vid; loved the tunes too.
Work sucks -- let's go riding!
When I was there for TT'94 to watch the Britten, Hyslop, the Dunlops, McCallen etc, it was all too much for me to take in. It blew me away. The big thing that really affected me however was Mad Sunday, where anyone [usually 10-15,000 pretenders, me included] are permitted to race around the circuit from 9am to noon. In '94, 3 guys were killed during Mad Sunday alone, never mind the racing fatalities. I thought I was really good passing guys ar 130mph, until the 'mad' irishman zoomed past me at 160mph WHILE I was passing some other guys.
Simply brilliant,,,,,,go there and get a different perspective on life!!
That video had the butterflies jumping in my stomach. My kids asked is that what I do could only laugh wish I had half the skill those guys are insane.
