Post O/T again...Isle of Man TT winner dies in race

The other day I posted about the death of a Motorcyclist editor dying in a street crash in Ashville N.c at the Honda Hoot.

I just got a message that Isle of Man multi time winner Joey Dunlop died in a crash I think yesterday on a street course. It was raining and he came to an oddly angled turn...he slid off and hit a tree..

Sorry if I reposted...This really sucks..I take Motorcycles to be my No.1 interest with the Scooby at 1.125...super close second..
Lately things have been freaking me out about riding..Last year one of Eraldo Ferracci's sons died around the corner from my house..(Owner of Fast By Ferracci and Cagiva USA )
That was freaky..then I crashed my almost new CBR F4 in march..not too much damage to the bike and now these two latest incidents...just wierd me out...
Sorry to be so far off topic

Thats really to bad, my regards. Do you guys ever watch those TT races? They are the craziest thing I have ever seen, I'm surprised more people don't die. 200MPH on a city street, with potholes, cracks, uneven terrain. Totally crazy, I even get scared watching it sometimes.......

Yeah they are incredible...I can't belive they don't hit the curbs and manhole covers...The sidecar races are pretty wild too
