This is just like my commute on the Wolf.  Really, it is!   ;)   ::)  Except the Wolf is a little slower.

That's amazing. How do they remember the bends at that sort of speed? I was surprised at the noise - the four-stroke multi revs so fast that it sounds like a two stroke - even the popping on the overrun reminds me of my SB200 (that's just about where the similarity ends!!).

Back in the late 60s I was on the island for five weeks. My best time driving round the course was just on 38 minutes, driving a Ford Anglia 1200 early on a Sunday morning. Not quite a 60mph average. Just a bit down on the bikes...........

This is the best Isle of Mann video I've seen.  Spectacularly captures the intensity in HD, and it can be downloaded and burned to a disc.  The vid cannot be hot-linked here, so copy and paste the URL and delete the space before the 4.
