Imagine riding a motorcycle down a twisting, narrow two-lane road at speeds upward of 175mph. Yeah, I can’t imagine it either. The Isle of Man Time Trial is one of those events that puts the EPIC in EPIC. The CRAZY in CRAZY. Some may say that what it takes to finish this race is what rides between the legs of the men brave enough to push past a normal humans realm of understanding. I agree, but it’s not the motorcycle I am referring to. Guys like Honda TT Legends racer John McGuiness, has been doing things most of us deem impossible for years. He finished first at this years 2012 event with an average speed of 128 mph.
Tonight, I came across a video from this years race and had to share. Grab your favorite beverage and give it a look. If you are wondering, the video is not sped up at all. To say they pass in the blink of an eye is merely an understatement.
