A BMW RR won the Isle of Man this year, but only because Harrison had clutch problems with his ZX10RR after building an incredible lead. Until the clutch started slipping he was steadily increasing his lead and looked like nobody would ever catch him.

This year saw 131+ mph lap averages, from a standing start.

I have seen videos on Youtube about these races and I'm so impressed as to how fast these riders go.  It's awesome to watch it.

All programmed in on my to watch list, all week, on Velocity network, (sattellite) at 11 pm and 3 am. Wish they would do more extensive coverage, pretty short program for so much action..

And it wasn't just a BMW, it was the Tyco Team BMW ridden by Michael Dunlop... one of the winningest riders today...
Team mate of Kneen, who perished opening practice lap 4 days ago..

Not sure how I missed this discussion before.
Just learned the Isle of man was on TV today.

Now I'm watching whenever I can, and recording when I can't.

Ride safe, Ted
