    Yeah, it is on mine as well.

    Insanity. I simply must witness such insanity.

    I wonder if they have a cutout in the tank to make room for their enormous balls.

    On mine as well. I used to race sport bikes until I got hurt. While my racing days are over, I'll have another bike someday. Those guys at the Isle of Man however are amazing!

    Valentino Rossi (the Doctor) has visited the circuit. He refused to race it.

    These guys have got some huge stones. When you look at the videos and notice how emotional they get when the race is over. I think they realize that they cheated death.

    Back when I had my CBR1000F I thought I was pretty good on two wheels. Realized after watching the Isle Of Man TT videos that I may as well of had training wheels on my scooter. Those guys are pure crazy.

    On my bucket list as well. Would love to participate, knowing full well that I'd never push the limits they push. Has to be a rush.

    Same here, except mine was a GSX-R1100.

    Now, I'd rather run the Isle of Man circuit in a Peel Trident (with the optional 99cc engine, of course!).

    Racers do pretty amazing things when on closed race tracks these guys do insane things on pretty much a closed public road with no safety barriers and no runoffs. I'd love to see them try that in the U.S. Never happen, hard enough to do a bicycle race on public roads.

    I don't want to witness it, I want to pilot a GSXR1000 through the streets.

    I may be a little strange. I used to drag race Hayabusas. There is nothing more amazing than 200mph on two wheels.
