Thanks for this post, JB! It's the kind of tribute Kato most deserves.

For some reason, the Isle of Man TT seems like a special case to me. All the riders know how particularly dangerous it is, yet they come. It's like "tickling the tail of the Dragon"* or running with the bulls at Pamplona.

I agree completely. That is one event that I really want to experience before I die, as is running with the bulls at Pamplona. I seriously had intended to do both while I lived in Europe, but somehow kept putting it off, and now I suspect I will be able to do neither. There is a lesson in there someplace, I believe.



When I saw this article on Crash.net, I couldn't help but be struck with the irony of the situation -- juxtoposed with numerous articles about Kato's death, tributes from riders and others, and discussions of possible Suzuka bocotts, here is this post about Triumph returning to the TT!
