I came across this and thought some of you might appreciate it.
It's a video of the Isle of Mann TT, shot from a helicopter, making for some breath taking sites. Its best watched in full screen mode.
For those who aren't familiar, the "TT" for Tourist Trophy, is an annual event held on the Isle of Mann, a small island between England and Ireland where there are no speed limits. Every year, they close the roads and riders come from all over the world to compete for the best times.
Watching it, you can almost imagine what it must be like to be the rider. These bikes respond with an almost telepathic like connection between rider and machine, acting like an extension of the rider's body. At those speeds, the synapses in your brain are firing at such extraordinary rates, that it gives you a heightened sense of awareness and the perception that time slows down. When in fact, according to Einstein, it does.
