    Just How Fast Bikers Are Going At Isle of Man TT

    For the biker enthusiasts here and for those who would crap their pants witnessing it!

    About 2.5 minutes long

    In case you’re wondering, in 2016 5 riders died.
    In 2017 3 died.
    Since 1911 250 riders died.
    People create their own questions because they are afraid to look straight. All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don't sit looking at it - walk. Ayn Rand

    Have seen a few videos. Crazy stuff. Not at all a safe course like most race tracks. I think two perish, on average, each year.

    That's as may be... but I've always wanted to ride that race route - not at racing speeds mind you; but I wager I'd not get taken for the little old lady I am either.

    I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying harder to be a better person than I was yesterday.

    There are two groups that circle the course, on different days. One group is the professional racers, who generally aren't the ones smearing themselves across the scenery. The other group is J. Random SquidleyBiker, who rides as fast or slow as he wants, on whatever he rode to the race. Those are the idiots who end up going home in ambulances. It's one of the biggest attractions of the TT: The chance to ride the course as if you were a racer yourself, on your own bike. Needless to say, there are a lot of wrecks because the amateurs overestimate their skill and the prowess of their bike.

    Depeds on where they are on the course, and the camera settings. Best guess is somewhere around 80-90mph. On the longer, more open sections, some bikes will top out north of 150mph. Add 10-15mph in every section if you're talking about the pro racers.
