This is one of my favorite IOM videos. Listening to Guy Martin explain his way around the course is incredible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVXc29ZgutI

You can't talk about the TT and not talk about Hailwood.

I find it amazing the courage in my opinion that those guys have to ride there. I don't think I could do it.

You wanna see my itinerary?

I love watching this race. I cant imagine the courage it takes to ride there. One little mistake and every corner can kill you.
