I am watching when I have some free time.  I have been addicted for years. I cannot imagine the absolute rush those riders must experience. 
The laser focus was what I enjoyed about racing, there was no room for any outside distraction. But I always did it in a controlled environment,
a dedicated road racing track with run off areas and over a distance of maximum 4.3 miles.  This, what they do over 37 miles and changing
conditions over different parts of the track, passing so many structures that are immovable, takes a very special mindset.  Unfortunately, that
is what claims lives, and we just lost a rider in the last two days.  So, while it still holds my interest I am more conflicted as I get older with
the very high risk factor.  But of course, that makes it what it is.  I hold my breath more watching the TT than I do Moto GP.

$30.00 to watch all the TT races, practice and qualifying is worth it to me. As is the $130 or so I pay to watch the all of the MotoGP season. If I could watch all the races on cable TV for free, I would still gladly pay the money just to avoid all the commercials and the vastly more detailed coverage. I will say the guys that do the MotoGP coverage do a much more professional job than those who are doing the Isle of Man TT races.
