havin run in 125 & open mx classes, and couple cross countrys, early '70s, id say iom racers have more/bigger cajones. just my $.02.

Yeah that's cool but they killed it for me when the 2 smokes were phased out. I just can't watch it anymore.
+1. rode some 4 strokes, if nothing else, they sound slower. theyre not really anymore.

also like hillclimbs. cbx, anyone? gonna find a link, bbl.

no vids, couple stills, down the page. I was there. see #62. NOT me. i's just a spectator
