This video is not mine, it was shared on an IOM TT Facebook site and the S1kr rider is the lucky one!! If that SPECTACULAR riding ability he obviously possesses had caused an accident he might have been spending time in one of the Queens B&Bs.

I've ridden that road many times - it's brilliant  :046:

But yeah too many with enthusiasm which outweighs their ability.

That's why I go over for the Southern 100 rather than the TT - too many riders like this  :172:

Plus 1 for the Southern 100 and if you get up early enough can nearly have the mountain section to yourself awesome.

"Rush hour" can be hell over there could take you 15 mins longer to get to your destination! I see the weather isn't playing ball over there for the MGP and if not the weather people crashing!
On further inspection of the video I see it was nearly 2 S1Kr less as the bike he narrowly avoided while dodging the first one  was one too.

Whoa!  Im pretty certain that I would have needed a clean set of shorts after that.  Glad it panned out for both and I dont think performing a U turn shortly after was well thought out.

...Just as many a-holes on 2 wheels as there are on 4. Glad you got out in one piece.
