Awesome place and Love it,
Go at least twice a year and even worth a visit when No racing on just to race round with No Speed limits on the mountain and other sections.

Looks like fun, wish we had something similar here in Oz. One of life's bucket list things is to go to the TT, doing Mad Sunday would tip it all off.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers, I may have a few more but really need to upload them

I think it's definitely something that if you have the chance should try. Some of my best bike memories are there

I was on a RD500LC on Mad Sunday 1987, it was my first visit to the island. I remember some riders showing me and my mate that we not quite as fast as we thought we were.
The wind was so bad in some sections of the mountain that a Ferrari came by and there was nothing we could do about. Still didn't stop me from doing a couple of laps though.

To get onto the ferry we had to ride across a plank, quite a wide one, but still it made me balk, and I was quite a reckless sod.
A bike went down in the ferry hold and took a whole line of bikes with it.
A real adventure for me when I was 20 and a lot of fun, so many bikes every where that it was difficult to park even in the side streets if you were late back from the racing.
A bikers heaven and a must I think, even if only once.

Thats exactly as it is now 30 years on. I did it in 2006 on my Benelli for the first time and gave up road bikes for near on 10 years and did it again as you can see in the video

A few more speed limits and obviously cost can be a bit spiteful but other than that definitely a great memory

As for the wind... Unless you've done that mountain section at speed like you say, you can appreciate how windy it is. I made a comment at the beginning of my video 10 years ago about it, then forgot all about it and did the mountain only to say the same again

It'll take 20mph off your bike speed and can move you across a lane if you don't have your witts about you

I think maybe your Dragster RR has some advantage in that I think a fully fared bike may well catch the side winds more. No how idea how one of the TT riders copes with 30+mph cross winds on a bad day.

There were a lot of crawlers in your video, I don't remember so many slow riders on my visits. They looked more like tourers than sports riders, does the island attract many tourers these days?
