This is “The Isle Of Mann” Motorcycle Race! Probably the Oldest Bike Race in the world!

I chose this one because most of them are all LONG and this one seemed to have the most ACTION crammed into a shorter period of time. Go to the Right Side of the page if you’d like to see more.

They seem to have 2 types of starts. 1/ Timed Start, every 5/10 Seconds, ONE is Off. & 2/ Hail Hail the Gangs all here and 20/30/40 all take off at the same time. Yumpin Yesus!

At 200 MPH. You BLINK. You MISS! ....There are usually 2 or 3 Fatalities per year. At that SPEED you don’t get the chance to go back and try again!

Hope Ya’ll Enjoy!

Rick

You’re right, one split second mistake and you’re history at that speed.

Right On Pottz! I Re-Built and rode a Classic Harley (And a BMW) for many years, then one day on the 401 Highway another close call!

The IDIOT Brake Checked Me at about 80 MPH for NO apparent Reason other than He didn’t like Bikers and I wasn’t ready for it

BAM! Over the top, 911, then Hospital for 2 Months. When I got out I made the derision that I might be the Best Biker in the World but there are too many IDIOTS on the Roads. I Sold Both Bikes and bought a Classic Corvette (C3 1979). Love It!

hehe, i rebuilt a 78 shovel head, tricked it out, and in 91 whilst cruising along, minding my own business, had a fella in a new jag, rear end me, i ended up on his hood, over the back onto pavement at about 50, road rash, that took forever to heal, if i coulda got up i’d beat the sob to half his death, dang it hurt,

pretty much did me in on the two wheels, so i went to jeeping well actually rock crawling, tricked out a few rigs, and still do it occassionally, problem is working on a broken rig in bfe is not my style anymore, the getting down and under it is ok, its the getting up and out thats killing me.

awesome race, used to watch it, boys sure have some cajones to ride like the wind

Thanks for your Comment Knockout. I know where you’re coming from.

Don’t tell anyone but a year later I met the IDIOT at his work, Outdoor Parking Spot. I took a Cab there. HE HAD To take a Cab Home! HE DESERVED IT!!

(Before everyone tells ME that REVENGE is not the way to go. It was very Satisfying! SO! Save Your Breathe!)

I gave up riding after a pretty good accident, but even in my day, I wouldn’t try what that video shows. Not sure if I wasn’t brave enough, or stupid enough. Probably a little of both !!! And to Rick – Sometimes, revenge is such a sweet thing.

A nephew rode AMA hound and hare races and was national champ one year. Could have been more if the AMA would do something about all the cheating, but that is another issue. His dad told me even when he was a little kid first starting he could see the kid was fearless and without any hesitation. His older brother was good too, but always a couple spots back in the pack. He had a slight hesitation in dangerous territory.

“revenge is such a sweet thing.” Yes it is Mel. Thank You! Especially when It’s Deserved and HE had absolutely NO legitimate reason to do what he did!

Thanks for your Reply Mel.

I don’t know who’s crazier…the guys on the bikes or the spectators standing along the sides of the race track. Obviously, one false move could kill the rider but, with the fans so close to the action, it’s seems likely that you’d lose more than a few bystanders with a riderless bike flying through he air like a missile!

Hi Pottz:

Yep! His was about a year old. I didn’t want the Cops connecting it to My stay in the Hospital and the Actual Accident.

Thanks for the Support Buddy!

I was thinking the same thing! A couple of the others show that happening. One was right in the middle of a small town.
The Bike Driver didn’t make it (May He R.I.P.) and a few bystanders were also taken away by Ambulance.

Thanks for your Reply Ripper!
