    Its on every night this week. The footage is amazing, and the camera angles/quality is the best I've seen. 160+ through city streets? Incredible. I used to ride crotch rockets, but I just can't relate to these guys! They are fearless. They put a lot of faith in their tires.

    I wish I had the talent Guy Martin had during his wreck on the first night.

    I have that shit DVR'ing every night. I love the TT and I love the interviews.

    I love watching this.

    Question, once you go 180mph on a bike, through the streets like in the Isle of Man TT....how else would you ever be able to get a thrill?

    Russian Roulette with 5 bullets?

    Watched this a few years back. I had never watched motorcycle racing in my life, but even my wife enjoyed it. Crazy to see them ripping that fast through local roads.

    Russian roulette does not require skill

    Play it with your feet instead of hands then.

    Date somebody with herpes?

    You guys should checkout some sidecar motorcycle racing, if they still do it. I haven't seen it in years. They don't reach speeds as high as Isle of Man TT, but the racing is every bit as exciting to watch.

    I think there are almost 300 total deaths in the history of the race.

    Which is a lot, don't get me wrong, but you'd expect a lot more given the length of time and what these guys are doing. I mean damn!

    It is a shame that guys are dying doing something that is considered "entertainment". I don't want to see anyone dying in real time. Not many walk away from an accident at that event - there is so little / no runoff room. I used to watch but every year I watch it less and less. For me, the reward for these guys isn't worth the risk. I know it is what they love, but dang...
