They still compete in the isle of man?? I thought those roads were too narrow for high hp bikes. guess I was wrong. Now i'd love to go see one. I love watching the old footages of honda (borrowing money to compete) bimota, MV Augusta and duc's.

How much is it to run the isle of man? I've wiki'd it and everything. I know "back in the day" it used to be very expensive and it was more than a reward just to finish the race.

I'd love to run it in about 10 years after I get some experience under my belt.

I think you have to be on a team or have a team . then go live there for a year and ride the course every day . Money is not the question . It is a life commitment .

Damn...seriously? I really wanted to ride that track after I got some experience, seeing that track ridden historically really makes me want to jump at it.

Any twistie roads? You get more freedom that way besides the rogue copper.
