    As she always informs me! :D. This will mostly be liked by people who like two wheels, but looks to be so much better the the 'I, Superbiker' movie thats doing the rounds...

    The TT scares me greatly. Been in the IOM a lot not long before its ran and they have sandbags tied up round lamposts and everything :nonod:

    I think it would just scare me to watch anything like that :eek:

    Awesome!! would love to get over there to watch it, never been yet, plenty of biker mates make that one every year without fail.

    Scary ride but they know what they're in for........their adrenalin must surge 3 days before the race!! :D :D

    I do have rather an obsession with Guy Martin :D He really is my boyfriend who doesn't know he's my boyfriend :D

    Can't wait for tomorrow night when The Boat That Guy Built, is on :D

    And yep love the TT, fabby now the Moto GP have kicked off again :D And World Superbike and British Superbike will be kicking off soon! :thumbup:

    I took this picture of the man himself a few years ago at Oulton Park when he raced in British Superbike :D

    Fastest ever onboard lap of the TT, an AVERAGE of a 129 odd mph...and when you consider there are a few slow corners...and one lap is almost 38 miles long...

    Haha I'm not sure I want to watch those clips lol! I like the Isle of Man a lot but that race worries me tonnes! Seen the Steve Hislop statue he was meant to be quite good I think but he is the only TT guy I remember :laugh:

    Might have to get into it a bit if there's some fit men about though :rolleyes:

    :D

    Steve Hislop was great at the TT, theres also a lovely statue of Joey Dunlop, probably THE best TT racer up on the mountain...

    ...and seeing as you don't want to watch the fast stuff...try this.

    That's still scarey :D

    The Steve Hislop one looks out to sea from Onchan Head.

    Aww this makes me want to befriend my grandma again to go to the IOM :eek:

    Whereabouts is the Joey Dunlop statue? Looks a bit like magnetic hill...
