I've seen this before, it's very good. Well worth watching.

I can't wait to watch this. Unfortunately, I'm at work right now.

Does anyone know of a documentary about the history of the IOM TT or (especially) the emergence of Honda's involvement in the TT?

I'm sure I've seen one or two. I can't remember what they're called, and I don't have time to search right now, because I'm going out to have a few beers with an American, a Mexican-American, a Nigerian and three English chaps at a Punjabi restaurant in Manchester.

Seen this before but the TT is always an unparalleled watch so thank you for posting. There is also a women's TT with the fastest woman rider from the UK, Jenny Tinmouth who is a motorcycle mechanic and owns her own shop, "Two Wheel's Workshop". Her fastest posted speed at the TT was 187kph! Average speed 116mph I think. I can't find any vids though. Wld be nice to watch the girls fly!
