The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy endurance race, it should be noted, is a motorcycle-based event--and one of the most challenging races ever conceived. It cannot be emphasized enough just how dangerous this thrilling race is--simply because it's "racetrack" consists of city and rural streets.

Here's a great place to see factory Superbikes in a demanding real-world setting.

Ya, this is the ONLY bike race I actually watch, it reminds me of the Monaco F1 track, how it goes in the city and rural streets.

sorry, I left that part out. I figured if anyone planned to watch it they knew what it was, or were watching NASCAR on speed and accidently saw some motorcycle racing LOL :D
I'm only a little bitter about the whole thing :) wait until they kill 2 wheel tuesday, then I'll be flat out pissed. anywho, back on topic;
I watched the pre-race special last night, some of the roads have fresh blacktop, but a lot of the road is still really rough and NEEDS some blacktop. Should be an outstanding race. Too bad joey dunlop isn't around to run it :frowning:
