of course they would probably have been okay if not wearing helmets.

those people all wear those stupid full face jobbies that prevents you from seeing and hearing all around. They should have been wearing beanies that way they'd get to see and hear better, plus the spectators could tell who was cool or not and buy you free beer

Actually, since the dead guys were wearing helmets, they get a 'get out of casket free' card. Free with every purchase. Good for one use only. They certainly aren't as dead as those morons that don't wear helmets, and that's a good thing.

I went in 1989. Best time EVER! IOM makes Daytona look like a block party. Lots more diversity in the bikes, too. You don't see that many of the GPTB (tm-kpaul, inc.).



On Mad Sunday, I was passed by a formula Ford race car in the mountains. Then I passed a trials sidecar rig with a blowup sex doll as a 'Monkey". It absolutely is mad.



Every rider should go before they quit riding. Truly amazing.



Apparently, the hot set-up is to fly into London and rent a bike, then take the ferry. I was stationed in Germany at the time, and rode there from Worms.

I was there for 1 day of practice this year - it is really different from the m'sickle scene here in MI for sure. I never saw a Vincent daily driver (with luggage rack!) before! Our hotel operator told us you would really be lucky to get a room for next year as the whole island is expected to be sold out.

IOM should be sponsored by Depends.
