    These races made a lot of sense in 1907 when the winner Rem Fowler's average speed was 57kph in the IOM TT.

    No they were just as mad/balls of steel..... gravel roads with no safety gear etc

    The used to have a race between Melbourne and Sydney also on gravel roads 1905..... TT in Tasmania.

    Fearless back then

    If anything these races are more relevant than ever.

    Speeds have grown exponentially, as has safety equipment, tyre technology, suspension, geometry, brakes, engine performance, medical response, motorcycle popularity. Deaths have not.

    All of which average schumks like us benefit directly from.

    Yes TurboR1, the old saying of racing improves the breed.
    The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.
