    And sadly, rather predictable. Anyone going that fast on that circuit is pushing their luck way beyond reasonable.

    My heart goes out to his family and friends.

    I love and hate the TT in equal measure, it takes extreme skill & balls to ride it, little room for error, if they make a mistake it can all to often be fatal.

    The thing is Dave you don’t have to be going that fast to meet your maker on a roads circuit especially any of the ones on the IOM.

    I was incredibly saddened to see the news of Daley's fatal accident. My heart goes out to his family, particularly his wife and child. I was also absolutely stunned to see how many deaths have occurred on the Isle of Man course over the years. Tragic.

    My hero Dave Jeffries was killed at the TT, it took me a few years before I could even watch it following his death. But I am not one who thinks the event should be banned.

    A young life, tragically taken prematurely, it must be so hard for those close to riders at the TT in the knowledge that any moment could be their last, RIP Daley and strength to his nearest and dearest.

    I imagine being there when a tragedy happens brings it home to everyone on the Island, I don't understand why people would want to take pictures of a crash scene where a young man just lost his life? :confused:

    There have been many more fitting tributes to Daley than ghoulish pictures of the crash scene.

    It's like all the scumbags who take pictures of motorway accidents. There will always be ghouls. I have the greatest respect for these racers. It's the same spirit that has pushed mankind to climb mountains, explore space and try things new. My sympathies to his family.

    I have said to my family that if I die on a motorcycle then I would have died doing the thing that has made me feel most alive, that is not to say that I want to die in that way, just my point of view if I did. :expressionless:

    I, too, have had that exact same conversation with my family and a number of my non-riding friends. The riding friends get it and (mostly) agree.
