Top 10 Races to See Before You Die

If you’re reading this, then you understand the excitement of motorcycle racing. The technology behind the equipment is bested only by the talent and dedication of those bold enough to pilot them. And we can’t get enough of either.

Sure, watching the races from the comfort of your couch, beer in hand, is nice. But nothing compares to the atmosphere of actually attending a race in person. In our experience, anyone who starts a sentence with, “I was there when Kenny Roberts…” generally has our full attention. In this week’s Top 10, we look at the races you absolutely must attend in person before you kick the bucket. Why should you see these events? Easy – because you’ll create memories that’ll stay with you forever.

    Isle of Man, by a mile.

    • Oslo Norway

      Good over all list too…Man, the TV thing just doesn’t do a mile track justice. Hockey and dirt track miles seem to suffer this fate. A mile race on the dirt in person is a must see deal…

        Agree with the hockey part.Maybe you’re right about the dirt track part too,wouldn’t rule it out…

    If they were still doing Spa franchorchamps on motoGP,I’d still place it second to IoM.But it would have been a great second:)

    Great list

    Edit:Should be needless to say,but check out TT3D:closer to the edge.It’s documovie from IoM which comes also not 3D :D

    I was hoping #1 would be the Isle of Man! I’m going to make it over soon and bring a bike. They say you can ride the course. The Videos are Unreal!

      Have fun! Yes, there should be opportunities to ride the course. Quite jealous. I’d love to go back.

      If you go there,I would recommend riding around the track very early in the morning (around 5am) rather than mad sunday.Do mad sunday,but be careful then as there are alot of nutters there then.
