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

He knows not where he's going, for the road it will decide, it's not the destination, but the glory of the ride.

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?

Had to get away to see what we could find
Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they've led
Listen not to what's been said to you

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!
