2012 Isle of Man TTAug 09 2012

The first 30 seconds of this video are exactly what you want from a motorcycle race video. No, no, there's no motorcycle crash scenes that involve a stone wall, sheep, and a helicopter, but it's a good look back at this year's race. These guys go fast.

The Isle of Man TT, the most insane motorcycle race in the worldMay 29 2012

File this one under what fast looks like: motorcycle racers reach speeds in excess of 200 mph as they navigate the tiny curved roads of the Isle of Man during the Isle of Man TT race. The crash at 1:30, which is insane by the way, involves a stone wall, sheep, and was filmed cinematically from a helicopter.
