[Video] Climb aboard for a blistering lap at the 1986 Isle of Man TT | GRR – Goodwood Road and Racing

If you’ve ever ridden a motorcycle in anger, you’ll know the sheer exhilaration as you open the throttle on an empty road. But it would pale in comparison to a blistering lap of the Isle of Man TT, where motorcycles regularly reach speeds in excess of 170mph on narrow country roads, pushing the limits of velocity. It’s a brutally dangerous sport, there’s no denying, but the motorcyclists that race around the small island in the Irish Sea do so with a fearless aplomb, risking everything on the 37.73-mile mountain course.
