Emphasis on man. Grande Cajones and major skills involved.
I come from sportbikes and can really appreciate what it takes to run this great race.
If you come from the cruiser world, you probably can't relate and may not even care about such races..
These bucks can really ride.

I'm booked to go next year, on my GL1500 outfit.
I did the Classic TT (Manx) last year on my Moto Guzzi Falcone a lap of the course took me an hour and four minutes. Terrible I thought and did another lap, that took even longer.
Highlights of this years TT can be seen "ITV Player" and go to ITV4.

A white knuckle ride even sitting in your armchair :o

White knuckle event is right. Too bad they don't have a race with such a level of skill, speed, and excitement involved here in the US. I look for it every year.

Yup but only the TT in June not the Classic TT in August which is why I'm going in June next year. There are two sidecar races and I'm watching the highlights as I type this. Dave Molyneaux has just taken the lap record at 116.78 mph :o .
