Just go back from seeing this movie. I thought they did a good job. The filming was amazing. I like to hear stories of how people got into motorcycling. There are some great shots of kids and big grins.

For me, it did focus a little too much on racing. Maybe if I had done some racing I would like that part more. A little racing is great but too much for me.

Dirt bikes just look like too much fun. I need to get into that as well and have been thinking about it for some time. My 35 years of riding have been all street but I remember when I was a small kid, how much I wanted that Honda SL70. It hurt.

Some of the characters are quite entertaining. I liked seeing so many women and girls who are getting into motorcycles. The movie is big on families riding together.

All in all, I would see it again and will most likely by the DVD.

Everyone who rides should take 2 people that don't ride to see this movie.
Spread the word, it can only get better for riders if all non-riders see this. Will they watch for us, give us more space ,envy us, respect us ?
I don't know, but it can't hurt.
I enjoyed it thoroughly. There was a nice balance between racing, dirt, street and a couple of RTW trips in the mix,Ted Simon and Dave Barr.

Saw it today in a theater in Atlanta. It was pretty good. Theater was almost full. Good folks there as you would expect.

I saw it today in Birmingham. Great movie for riders but I'm not sure how well it will go over with people who aren't riders.

I had the same pre-conceived notions so found myself distracted by waiting for the riding part.... I'll be watching it again.

Question under-impressed.

It was fun and had some emotional moments. I was underimpressed. 99.999% of the footage was in California, .0001% Daytona, .0001% Sturgis. Lots of history in CA but much of why we ride is because there is so much more than CA. Included lots of different brands. On Any Sunday was more inspirational. I won my tickets in a raffle and it was worth about that.

Great movie, I saw it with my son. He rides with me . Just how many 17 year olds like to hang out with their dads? That is part of the reason I love motorcycles.

YMMV, but I was underwhelmed. I guess I expected it to be cooler than it was.

The narrative is pieced together from 30-60 second soundbytes from a lot of famous biker talking heads. This goes on for the entire length of the movie and got tiring.

Pretty-much every scene w/ moving motorcycles is shot in slow motion with a soundtrack that tries a little too hard to be "epic". The music is similar to what's played right before a battle scene in Lord of the Rings.

It's not bad-bad, but it's a lot closer to "Cafe Racer TV" than "On Any Sunday".

Sorry. I wanted to like this movie.
It followed me home.

Great Film

Just watched the movie after my son gave me the DVD as a Christmas gift! We live 'in the sticks' and both knew it'd likely never show in our local theatres...and so he blew me away by making sure I have a copy. Now, I'm gonna get him one too.

I thought the film was excellent...with all the diversity out there in our motorcycling world, there's bound to be some who will think it misses the mark...their mark. I thought it covered many powerful aspects of why we do love riding, and was well done. I believe it can be a powerful tool to invite more into our way of life too...near the end it was mentioned that there's a 'seed' in many of us...the seed of being a motorcyclist. When something comes along to 'water' that seed, we are hooked. I think this film may encourage many to join us. I plan on inviting all my friends to see this...well done!

XR650R Oink!, Tiger 800XC, and many other notable rides, (and not so notable) now gone...

I got my copy right before Christmas; I strongly believe that the future of the sport relies on reaching out to a different market, my wife and son both ride, but I think that the sentimental family angle was a tad overplayed. then again, I've watched it 5-6 times, so I can't be too critical.

A good representation of DS/overland travel, flat track, hill climb, cruiser lifestyle, Moto GP, history, etc, but where was the isle of Man?
