    n 2009 India made history with the technology of the future.
    A bunch of college students who bailed out on their final year BE exams, traveled to Isle Of Man with one passion, one dream. The dream that perhaps we share. Race thier bike at the Isle of Man An 80Bhp machine that weighed just 170KGs!
    However thier journey just got tougher and tougher. The authorities handed a list of 16 things to be changed on the bike!
    The original rider backed out after seeing this list.
    In came John Crellin who said " I will race anything with two wheels" and went on to win the title and professed to buy the bike!

    There is quite a bit of insanity in racing the TT. And hats off to the brave riders that ride the streets on the IOM. Aspi Bathena ran in the TT is news for me and hats off to all that were before and all those who will follow after him. Had seen a documentary on DVD maybe a year back. Closer to the edge, I am sure I still have it somewhere ........... here is the trailer and sorry if it has been posted earlier
    I remember Rossi doing a lap with Mr. Giacomo Agostini and was asked if he would race the TT. I think he refused saying it was too dangerous. I maybe wrong but I think I saw that somewhere.
    Hope to be able to see the TT in my lifetime.

    Nice watch.
    I feel that most of the enthusiasts from everywhere who know about this race nurture a dream to one day go there and just ride their bike as fast as they can around the track. Not to win a race or post a quick time, but just to experience the joy and the sheer exhilaration of riding this insane circuit. And to be able to come back and say "I rode on it, and i survived.....and i cant wait to do it again".
    I still remember the first time i saw videos of the IOMTT and the racers just zipping across it. My jaw dropped, i couldn't even believe that it was even possible to ride like that in those kind of roads. It just seemed unreal, and then looking at the onboard videos of these racers going round it just becomes so clear of how difficult it is. The massive number of corners to remember, the speed, the bikes getting airborne over bumps, the incredibly tiny margin of error. THE greatest show on earth that is.
