Isle of Man TT

Great racing so far.

Honda's domination seems to be over.

Highest recorded top speed is now a Suzuki
Fastest outright lap is now a BMW

Only Honda on the podium so far is the sidecar.

Time trial

They start the riders at intervals, like 30 seconds apart vs mass starts.

Many moto GP riders won't do these type races because they are do dangerous

2 riders have already died this yr

TT=Time Trial I think,

The bikes aren't racing each-other per say- but trying to put up the fastest time around the circuit.

And as Racer X said it's a very dangerous race.

Dangerous because it's not just called a road course. It is the road. LOL. Runoff can put you in a house, wall, tree, cliff, or tons of other hard objects. No soft gravel traps for these guys
