Pushing the limits of man and machine, why do we do it? From a personal experience I can only say we ride the envelope of life’s edge testing our ability to sync with the machine you’re running and to break through limits that surpass your own ability. The thirst for more power and better control of carving a line on the track where you’re finally in tune with all around you, which put’s you out in front. At that moment I didn’t note the RPMs I was turning nor the speed, when it came time to shift you can feel where the engine tops out before a sputter and op for a taller gear a realm where you’re riding the envelope but you know where you are. For many people who are fans of motorcycle racing thinking these guys are insane but admire the control of such an art form of such men who run The Isle of Man, this is life’s edge.
There is nothing on Earth quite like the Isle of Man TT Races. No other motorcycle race is held on such a challenging track as the 37-mile plus Mountain Course with its seemingly never-ending series of bends, bumps, jumps, stone walls, manhole covers and telegraph poles.
The skill, bravery and concentration levels required are immense, with speeds approaching 200mph, and, while difficult to learn and even harder to come first, the rewards for winning on the world-famous course are like no other.
