Those races are fantastic to watch. One of, if not the most dangerous race course on the planet.

One of the best videos on bikes ever seen.

thanks for sharing. Like the bike with the fire on the exhaust, that was awesome.

You're most welcome Fastoman! Check out some of the others that pop up after the video stops, across the bottom of the screen. They have action in real time, and lots of cool footage.

Here is another, some say the best video promo ever on the Isle of Mann. Check out the vintage shots followed by current ones in the same part of the racetrack.

Years ago I bought CD's before they were broadcast, for the most part they were crap. The filming for TV has upgraded the quality considerable.

Wonder where they put the BRASS BALLS holder?

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.

Brass balls, right you are, Bob.

2010 TT saw Ian Hutchinson record 5 race wins and Guy Martin 160 mph crash. Lucky to be alive. For any crash there, would and could be their last.

This week, Moto 2 Japan's 19 year old Shoya Tomizawa loss was tragic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoya_Tomizawa
Also earlier week passing of 13 year old Peter Lenz at Misano. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Lenz
So young and taken away. RIP.

I don't think it's on Direct TV, sorry. It may be on another channel, check any Discovery or Versus channels.

Hutchy narrowly defeated Ryan(Kawasaki) tonight. What a great race!

Try 281. I found it on their site searching for "isle of man".

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!
