I know I couldn't, not even when I was at my best. My brain just could not process all the incoming information quick enough.

Here are two of the best showing us how it is done, Guy Martin and Michael Dunlop.

You can tell he's familiar with the track.. and that he's looking far ahead...by the way he gets set up for the curves coming.

It would be fun to just ride it.... :D

i'd love to ride it, but it would be a pretty sedate ride in my case, just take in the scenery and to say i've ridden the course.

That's NUTS!!!! :scared:


Fortunately, the older I get, the more modest a definition of "speed" I find thrilling! :tricycle:

There are more fatalities from newbies riding the track at off race times that there are from the races themselves. What is amazing is that you can actually ride the track at all. Definitely on my bucket list.
