You may have heard about the Isle of Man TT Races and you may know it's special, but what you don't know is that it won't last forever. Forces bigger than motorcycling are threatening this two-week festival of speed. The 150-mph run down bumpy and crowned Bray Hill, three feet in the air at Ballaugh Bridge, and flat out at nearly 200 mph through the mist and over the "damp bits" on Snafell Mountain are sights you can't see anywhere else in the world and they're all on the endangered list. Add the stunt rider shows, the drags, the Ramsey bike show, Mad Sunday, the crazy crowds, and the nightly smoky burn outs on Douglas' Queen's Promenade and you've got something that's not to be missed. If you want to know how to get there, where to stay when you get there, and what to see when you get there, then you'll want to have this ebook before you get there.
