    Wow, I couldn't ask for a better way to start my week. The words from my Mentor which speaks up when you read them, what an experience it would have been. Isle of Man TT - Mecca of Motorcycle Racing, I personally dont think there can be anything better than this in Motorcycle World. While reading the experience especially -

    "We watched the TT at Creg Ny Baa, a sharp 90 deg right turn just after a long down-hill run down from Kate’s Cottage around the 34th mile of the course. The riders flashed through the curve, knee sliders and bike parts scraping the tarmac at almost 100 miles an hour. I so wished there was someone else taking the photos for me because I just wanted to hear the banshee screams of the bikes and watch them as they hurtled downhill and then braked hard for the curve, some entering with the rear sliding away to glory at an angle to the front and gunning that throttle again as they flew through the apex and raced down the short straight to Brandish."

    The visuals were trying to come in front of my eyes, but the imagination was subjective of the videos which I have seen. I was trying hard to visualize what it would have been in real world and to be there, that is when I realized that i got cold sweat on my forehead sitting in office where the temperature is around 20 degrees. Well all I could think is this is the Isle of Man TT affecting my body, don't know what will happen if I got a chance to be there.

    Great Sir, I am so happy for you. Now will have to meet up soon to listen to the whole experience.

    Simply exhilarating, this is the raw deal - respect to the riders. I am getting goosebumps now, visualizing the scenes from Guy Martin focused Isle of Mann TT: Closer to the Edge documentary; gonna watch it again despite many repetitions.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful experience OF Sir.

    Thanks guys. The TT is a world apart from the clinical Moto GP. The whole atmosphere is impressively professional and yet amazingly casual. You can reach out and touch the star riders, take selfies with them and mingle with the teams in the paddocks if you want to. The crowds along the track also show astounding self-discipline. The manner in which the whole event is embedded deep within the social culture of the Island is not just admirable but so very inspiring. Wish we could have something like that going for us here. But then only if wishes were horses eh!

    3rd or 4th Guy Martin is the best. He is down to earth.
