    That sucks! I'm planning on one either Sat. or Sun. It's going to be a little on the cool side though. Just the way I like it.

    I've owned a silver 05 Yamaha FZ1 since 2007 and found this 2004 model late last summer with only 7600 miles and at a good price, so I now own two. Anyone with a dozen or so chainsaws needs at least two motorcycles. FZ1.JPG

    I ride a Honda Goldwing which is very quiet but I have also seen many youngsters cover their ears when starting my bike because they are expecting lots of noise.

    Wait for it. Here's a typical family enjoying watching a motorcycle race up close. These kids are right up against the edge of the racetrack, with no walls or fence, and riders approaching 200 mph

    It's all fun & games until a racer looses control and hits a fan.

    Then it's........oh my God, how could that have happened. :dizzy:

    Yep, we used to pit inside the 1/4 dirt track. I have seen a few sprint cars get air born and clear the dirt barrier. Biggest thing thou was it was muddy in the infield cause the track was banked and held water. they later built an outside pit that was higher ground

    When you put a human on a machine capable of obtaining ridiculous speeds, anything can happen.

    No way I'd let a child that close to something like that. If you're an adult you can think for yourself and rationalize the risk(s).

    Isle of Man is great, as is Ulster GP. It is strange that it's still allowed so we better enjoy it while we can. Safety is for sissies :D
