The first shot of this official Isle of Man TT recap tells you everything you need to know: Trees line a pastoral field, blowing gently in the wind. In the foreground lies a narrow ribbon of asphalt, bordered by a stone wall. Suddenly, a distant roar interrupts the birdsong, growing in intensity until four bikes race past at nearly 200mph. This is real road racing.

    I always have waited in anticipation for the disco to arrive. So I can watch the whole thing. I have only been over to watch once and that was awesome then. It should be on the top of the things to do for any rider of any type of bike.

    Oh, sweet swimming Moses! I can’t wait to get home and watch that on my big screen. I may well pass out after the opening scene.

    Thank you, Higher Power for motorcycles. Fuck. Yeah.

    I would trade Mars Landing Footage, college football, the Olympics, monster truck shows, the NFL, the NBA, the WNBA (that still exists, right?) and any other sport not mentioned to get just-decent coverage of the TT on basic cable.

    I mean God Lord this footage is bananas!

    This video is absolutely invigorating and incredible! The soundtrack is awesome and so so fitting! I hope to someday make it to the TT for the real experience.
