Video: Climb aboard for a blistering lap of the 1986 TT

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.
