Southern 100, ran after the end of the TT so as not to have everyone try and leave at once...
Leaving my viewpoint in Ramsey and the way to Douglas.

I am faster than you. You are faster than me. Where exactly does that leave us?
unless oncoming traffic was prohibited , numbnuts was taking some serious risks going around some corners

Cool...who was the totally fugly dude narrating at the start?? Your VTR sounds like shit. J/K dude shoot me a pm.
I am more than a mathematical equation, I am more than a chemical combination...
LOL, I like how you ride. Looks like it was great fun.

Meh, the challenge is when there is oncoming traffic.
Please leave this signature as is. Thank-you. Mgmt.
Pretty awesome. I'm jealous.
It may sound like a dumb request but could you describe the road? Asphalt quality, smoothness and texture compared to our roads? I've always been curious since they race, is it like a billiard table smooth, supper adhesive surface?
Try posting things you wouldn't be embarrassed to show your parents or your kids.
You can see my full lap, Thread: A six am trip around the isle of Man TT course, a historic ride...
The roads have no frost heaves nor the rippling from Semi rigs / tractors, also no manhole covers and or grates as far as I could see and the round abouts have no centre island. Also it is swept and cleaned like crazy, no grease strips down the middle, no rocks / dirt at the apex of the corners.
Not a racetrack but a well maintained road like what is normal for California / most of Europe, say, not the Duffy Lake ( pre repave),
worst bit is the classic shady tunnel iconic IOM TT scene, teeth jarring bumpy, at 200 + KPH down into Balaugh bridge (jump). John McGuinness current living legend at the TT and lap record holder at over 131 MPH AVERAGE speed, food for thought, with no run off... said that if it was repaved he could go quicker, but he's against removing the character of the section...
The mountain part is a very nice stretch, but it is all a real Road Racing course,
no quarter given, taken or expected.
A must do for any devout MC fan.
Hope that helps...
