WE seriously plan to hit the isle of man one year, I just want to ride those roads and see what it feels like!
Love this -- yeah, what it feels like to be airborne landing fractions from a wall lol -- even Rossi bowed to these racers saying he couldn't ride that circuit. Which is why Joey Dunlop still holds the record as the greatest motorcycle rider of all time. I don't know which circuit is more dangerous, Isle of Man or Macau.

Rossi sais these guys are Fugging NUTZ id I recall and the Dunlops as a whole are amazing riders, crazy assed John McGuiness is no slouch for sure he has some beautiful stuff on youtube and a clip on getting addicted to pan meds and recovery as well.
All who ride share the illness haha

Yeah, John has no fear -- Need for speed badasses all of them lol -- Wayne Rainey talked about having an out-of-body experience on the Suzuka circuit in '93 and hovering over his body watching his leg flapping behind him in the wind lol -- but he didn't break, no sir, it was still balls to the wall LOL!! I call all of them The Gladiators. I miss the Golden Age of racing when it wasn't 'who has the best bike' but it was who has the biggest kahunas -- everything is so technically monitored now, unlike the days of raw racing when the rider was the key element. MotoGP was more exciting with the likes of Rainey & Loris Capirossi. Still, an amazing sport -- I'd like to drift corners on my elbow & knee at 270 mph too. :cool:

started riding at age 9... Spent a number of years road racing '99-2007 then I had kids so my racing stopped and I rarely road. No bike now, tried the Harley thing but it just wasn't me. Now I do all of my "riding" on the snow and ice.
