Don't get me wrong - if they want to do it it's their choice. You just have to realize that they are nuts... basejumping or bullfighting is probably safer!
Nah, more like one or two die at the Isle of Man TT, and mostly on Mad Sundays when they let anybody out on the track. Most of this footage is from Ireland. Note the group starts, these are not Timed Trials... Still, when they are riding in the rain, you know that all the guys more than three rows back in the group in that photo can't see anything... at 180mph!
I was was riding in the hills last week and a damn goat came and knocked me off my bike. There behooves all up in my face and shit...
