Crazy year at the TT, records are being smashed superbike, and trike, these guys are two notches past 11 on a scale of 1-10 in the crazy department, but they sure can ride, there is a video clip in the attached link to Dean Harrisons Superbike run into the 134 mph club, of which he's the only and founding member...

I don't know enough about racing motorcycles to make any worthwhile comments but if you like motor sports and mind-numbing speed, how can you not watch this? It's always a true highlight of the year.

Fun to watch but those guys are a bit crazy. 100+ mph with a stone wall inches from your body is just nuts.
