100 hundred years of Road Racing on the Isle of Man

"The TT Mountain Circuit is without doubt the greatest challenge any racing motorcyclist can take on Every year some 500+ riders arrive on Mona's Isle to take on the gruelling mountain circuit in either the TT races in June or the Manx Grand Prix races in late August and early September. Most come just to pit there skills against the circuit with no thoughts of ultimate victory but just to gain a finishers award or a coveted replica. It is a dangerous circuit, but they all know the risks. No one is forced to race here, they all come for one reason and one reason only, to pitch themselves against the greatest pure road race circuit of them all, the TT Mountain Circuit, The Road Racing Capital of the World."

Ducati's New Superbike

Ducati has always been seen as the motorcycle equivalent of Ferrari. And like Ferrari, its loyal customers called Ducatistis always expect great styling bikes. So when the new 1098 Superbike was released to the press it brought about mix feelings from Ducatistis. The issue in question was not about if the bike looks beautiful, because it is definitely a stunning looking bike and if anyone says otherwise then I think he or she should be locked up in an asylum. The issue was more about the way the 1098 looked like other sportsbike. You see one main reason one would choose a Ducati over any other sportbike was that it look like..... well a Ducati. In my opinion the new Ducati 1098 doesn't look like others sportbike but that other sportbike are looking more like a Ducati. The 1098 a stunning looking bike and i think it still look like a it was made by Ducati. And if i had $25,000 laying around i would get the top of the line 1098 S Tricolore.
