Wow. How many people have died during the Isle of Man?
talk about knowing the track...looks like ill be playing the ps2 tt a little more before I go to the isle. thanks
I believe the average is two or three per year since the first race there in 1907. Ironically, though, most of the fatalities during the TT aren't competitors during practicing or racing, but fans crashing on their street bikes when the roads are open to the public. I had always wanted to go to the Isle of Man and at least get to ride on 'Mad Sunday,' but after I read, saw and heard what a clusterfuck that can be, I decided to make plans to go and actually race at the TT... it would be safer.

Nice 02 footage ,wild stuff 0 margin for error, formula bikes are going 200mph or more now .
Jefferies was known to actually bend the pegs while muscling his bike around the Isle. That is amazing.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
One year I'm going to watch the Isle of man from the side of the road. I don't think I would ever compete in that.

I like how he says “I really like this corner, it really gives you the illusion of speed”. ILLUSION??? It’s no f’in illusion your going 180mph!
I have always given credit to those street racers, thats some crazy shit!
