Oh man that's nuts! They say there's at least one death every year. Looks like a hell of a rush!

Real street racing...

The Isle of Man TT and the Macau Gran Prix street/road races are..insane. Extremely brave guys with no fear of a crash that's for sure.

First time I saw them, I was glued to the TV. When they top those rises at well over 100 mph and the bike starts dancing and they never let out of it....that's a whole new caliber of riding!

I'm lucky enough to have been to TT Week many times and ridden quite a few laps of the 37 mile road circuit. It's the only place in the British Isles where there is no speed limit outside the towns and villages. The riders who do the whole lap at racing speeds are heroic. There's a good DVD out now called "Closer To The Edge" which is worth a look. I bought a copy from Amazon. There are many other videos available but this one is the latest and a bit different.
