As a matter of interest to the 'moaners about death and danger`. When I was last on the Island, there were more people killed in skiing accidents in Europe in one year, than competitors killed racing in all of the TT races since they began.
Skiing:
Idiot or Brave?
Adrenaline rush!

I did the IOM TT in 1984-1987 as a spectator; 3 yrs on an XS850, 2yrs on an FJ1200. It is an absolute hoot, a buzz, and a celebration of life as an adrenaline-junkie. The racing, beer, nightlife, etc make it something that has to be done.
Do not expect any level of sophistication, except by the competitors. The 'competition` is a time trial: The riders set off at regular intervals, and race against the clock to try to beat previous records and be better than the next man/woman.
One of the best things about the riders is that there are few Prima-donnas; they stay in your hotel/guest-house/B&B, eat breakfast with you in the morning and drink beer with you after the racing is over.
Brave? No.
Idiot? No.
Adrenaline junkie? Yes.
