    @HPPT WTF is this? Is this some French IOM? I know this video is like crashes and stuff but some of these guys look like they can barely ride a bike, much less do a course like this. Is there any licensing or do you just show up, throw some dude in a black and white striped shirt some Gauloises and your set?

    Also if it is a French Isle of Mann......can we call it the Isle of Woman?

    I kid, I kid. At least their public officials allow them to risk their life on a course like this. So they have that up on us here.:(

    Steeltoe What's my move?

    Crepes n Cream may correct me but I think that's some of their backwoods hill climb stuff.

    Tail of The Dragon level with more stickers.

    The sidecar at 0:46 was legit.

    Dude at 1:16 wouldn't make it out of intro at any track day I've been to.

    Lo motherfucking l at dude at 2:10. Sweet baby Jesus.

    3:18 - "just a bit outside". But made a really nice recovery :D

    Yeah some of those sidecars guys are on it. And the 4 wheelers when its wet. But most of those guys shouldnt even be riding to the nearest Le Starbuck's for Cafe O Lay.

    I actually have no idea what the hill climb scene is like for motorcycles. It's a rather popular sport for cars with a real championship, and guys racing some serious equipment. I need to ask a few questions.

    My brothers did a couple of hillclimbs in France in the 70's, it was very popular then. As for the riders, I've raced in France and I've never seen so many bloody nutters on a race track as there.

    joec brace yourself

    That's been going on for years. I dunno..I'm sorta torn as to if I'm interested. It's kinda wacky.
