I just found out that my son is going to the 2014 Isle of Man TT.
The TT is on my bucket list!

The guys that race that might just well be in the bucket, I've seen some pretty horrific crashes in that race.

That is awesome! Good for him. I've been wanting to go and thought 2014 could be it but I guess I need to go to Italy next year and that takes all my vaca time :/. . As a fan myself I bought this year's commemorative helmet from Arai and I love it. 1 of 234 made and I haven't used it once!



And a little vid to get the juices flowing early!

The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is a scary fast motorcycle racing event. It's a time trial, but frequently faster riders overtake slower riders. It's a year younger than the Tour de France and done in the streets of the Isle of Man.

Heres the wikipedia about it.

This video says more.
