    TT / Road-racing video love thread

    Because stuff like this is too good not to share


    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

    There seriously is nothing else like it, makes gp monkeys look like wimpy kids and thats saying something. I consider a tt win way more glorious than a GP win, despite the glam. Fuck prototypes, this is man vs wild
    Would you launch of a blind crest at 180mph and hover on brake and not roll off the throttle on a road launching 1.5 mtrs in the air....crikey!

    The thing I love is that a lot of them are just regular guys (well other than the insanity, if you know what i mean). During the off-season they have regular jobs and you just know you'd be likely to bump into one of them in the pub.

    For men who push life to the edge this often, you sort of can understand why they are so laid back. Different outlook on life I think. I worship these guys like a googly eyed beiber fan. Call it a man crush mixed with envy! My eyes have inverted watching the on board footage over and over. watch it and try and pick a marker!

    Thro, you will never tire of watching these units race. It will be a sad day if it does ever get chopped, the irish govt is always under pressure but even the locals accept it. Call it living life to the full + some more!!

    Those are the days I miss. Not that we had that radical road races in this state but they were better than endless laps around Barbs. Although we only raced there once Kambalada was my favourite street circuit. Then I suppose Donnybrook then Collie. Oh! Hell the rest were damn good as well.

    nothing else comes close for skill and bravery in the face of such obvious danger.

    If anyone is at home, there is a doco on John McGuiness on SPEED (512, fox) at the moment on him breaking the 130mph average speed / lap.

    If you ever get the chance go to the IOMTT!!.
    Last year I stood next to a stone wall at the end of a walkway, just a simple piece of rope with a sign saying "racing keep out" at the end of it.
    This was at the end of Sulby straight, fastest part of the track at about 190mph, the bikes passing by us about the width of a lane away.
    Over the race week there are literally 100's of little places to watch and get close, being able to get close is what the TT has that nothing else does, in the pits, out on the track and in the pubs. Guy Martin did a fund raising night at The Ginger Hall where we stayed. Will be going back again some day.
