    How do these guys fit their massive testicles onto a bike with them, let alone in their leathers?!
    Just amazing!
    If I had a dollar for every time I thought about you, I'd start thinking about you

    Amazing. At one spot near the end you can almost see the colour of the hair on one spectators legs. No where else like it. How can you concentrate for that long? I'm getting old...

    I never saw Casey ride, but that's exactly what they said about him - you could just tell he was going fastest. Awesome stuff.

    The first time I really paid attention to IoM was when a bunch of us Honda V4 types got together to watch the Joey Dunlop film "V4 Victory", back in 2000 or so. It is still spine tingling stuff today, but of course the speeds have gone from 'nuts' to 'insane'...

    If you want a good read about IoM, check this out - you won't find a better insight into what makes it so special.

    Hutchinson is a bloody legend what he's been through the last few years.
    Wasn't real happy in front of the camera's though.
    Not getting A-grade kit and being accused of cheating !!!

    I still remember vividly the first bike, a 600, going past Crosby Hotel in first day of first session of practice week and wheelying up over the hill and fkn GONE, the grass on opposite side of road flattened as it went past at approximately 160+ MPH.

    Still brings goosebumps when reflecting on the IOM even after not being there since 2007.

    A magical place ridden by Extra-terrestrials with above Anthropological talents!

    P.S. VFour Victory is still a brilliant doco and still relevant for the common man.
