With the return of Ducati, BMW's first entry in 30 years and KTM's first ever slot, the Isle of Man now has participation from every major superbike manufacturer with the exception of Aprilia. TT veteran Michael Rutter will race this Ducati 1198R at this year's race.


loving the paintwork

it's crazy just how fast something bad could happen, they are flying past people at 100+ and they are standing just feet away from the bikes whizzing by... some even in the turns...wow

Has anyone ever been there? I'm going for mad sunday and part of the race week this year. I could use some tips on recommended places to watch it from. I know there are plenty of places on the web with this info, but if someone with firsthand knowledge could advise I'd appreciate it.

Hopefully, I'l get some great pics and vids that I'll post up for everyone here at MH.

Only bad thing is I won't have a ride while there so I'm planning to drive the route in a rental cage.
