From it video it looked like there was little to no margin for error, have to respect people that operate at exceptional levels in those conditions. Much Respect.

Just as gutsy as these racers are the spectators who stand just a few feet away with no protection. Some of them looked rather young. Yikes!

The folly of youth. they probably think they're being cool and fearless but if one of these riders gets it wrong and either they or their machine comes at these spectators at over 100mph, it's almost certainly the last thing they'll remember of the day.

They 'think they are cool and fearless', grief what shit you chat. If you evr heard or met any of these guys (I have met McGuiness and Marshall) they are humble, genuine good guys who recognise their vulnerability and there is no 'ego' about them. McGuiness describes himself as" a bricklayer who can ride a bike fast". You judge others by your own fragile self esteem guest. These men are the gladiators of the 21st Century and you are not fit to clean their boots.

Most bikers are stupid people. That is why they a) ride motorbikes and b) revere plump bricklayers and childish HGV mechanics like John McGuinness (double "n", BTW) and Guy Martin. Don't hate the messenger.

So a stupid person can calculate the lean-angles, turn-in points, braking-distances, weight-distribution of a 350kg machine travelling at up to 180MPH with such precision that they manageto stayon it and break lap records while using te necessary short and long term memory to remember evry bump, curve and manhole cover on a 37 mile circuit. That is the domain of a fool then you Bikerbaiter will be a master of it. Your thinking: flawed. Your sense of humour: none existent

yeah they are sutpid. OMG i hate people like you. it is dangerous i agree. IT IS not about showoff, it about LIVING YOUR LIFE. You and me we sit infront computer while they are living their lives. Even if they get killed it the best death anyone can wish. When they get old they will know that they did something with their lives while you are sitting in front computer and feeling sorry that you didnt live your life.

People think that 'TT' stands for Tourist Trophy. In fact it stands for Titanium Testicles because that's what you need to ride this course at the speeds these guys do. Balls of steel just aren't enough.

Wrong. TT was the nickname of the original winner of the informal race, Huon Terry-Thomas, in 1904.

TT was one of the founding fathers of road racing. He worked at Royal Enfield from 1899-1914. Everyone involved in the sport knows this.
