That sounds good right now (as I suit up to ride to work in 24 degrees). What was the title? I'll see if Netflix has it. Anyone else have motorcycle type movies, post up. Tis nearly the season to only watch instead of doing.

Bike movies

Kind of the season to enjoy a few flicks. The Mexico trip was a private DVD made for each participant of the ride. How about a ADV film festival some dark and stormy weekend/evening. I have the original 'on any sunday', 'Dust to glory' starring our local hero rider JN Roberts. 'Harley davidson and marlbouro man' cheesy bike buddy flick. A old VHS of a mid 1980's trip north of the arctic circle in canada where the mosquitoes outnumbered the blood molecules. And a 1965 movie done by honda showcasing motorcycles and competition around the world (narrative in japanese, arigato). My thought would be to show highlites of various films so it doesn't turn into a snooze fest. Anybody else have ideas/comments?

Sounds like a good idea. I have those, too, and maybe a couple others. The Hare and Hound Classic is a good one. Only around 35 minutes and amazing to watch those big Triumphs, BSA, Huskies, etc pounding through virgin desert. Then I also have the usual mix of crash and burn, freestyle, baja, and dakar stuff.

What? No trials bikes inside?

I still have a TL250 honda 'trials' bike lingering around for sale (CHEAP). Maybe a few warm up laps in the brewery parking lot.

You should post up some pics, details, and price info. Would be interesting to see what you have.

we should work something out... the room is not very big but there is space for 5 or 6 people. the subwoofer is on the fritz so no big action movies but all of the riding stuff mentioned above would be fine I bet.

Sounds great. I guess the first step is knowing what nights of the week you'd be interested in having a few people over. Were you thinking weeknight or weekend? The good thing about most of these old motorcycle movies is that they are entertaining no matter how many times you've seen them. Even the fluffier ones (like Long Way Round, Long Way Down, and Boormans' Dakar movie) are entertaining. But not as much so as the ones from the 60s and 70s. Makes me feel pretty spoiled by the bikes we ride today.

week nights are good for me... I might be able to do a weekend but it is tougher. With the holidays coming up it might be hard to find the perfect night but 19, 20, 23, 24 are good at the moment 22 might be ok.

New guy

Hey all fellow Helena riders. I just recently acquired a '96 KTM 620 RXC, she is down for the winter, but come spring I'm going to be all over the trails.

Anyway...just wanted to introduce myself.

Hey FNG! Welcome! I know that bike. It will be a good bike for you when you get it sorted out. Keep checking back here to see when we end up planning a get together.

My first motorcycle was a '80 XR80, and I spent some time on XR75s too. That brings back some memories.

Looking forward to meeting you and getting out.

Welcome, mbmt. You'll definitely have to come on some rides. I'm still doing country road cruising type rides and a few trails, but most of them are only a couple hours long. The all day rides and hard-core trails will wait for next spring.

Seems like the little Hondas were a popular starter bike. My first bike was a brand spankin' new '81 Honda XR80 when I was a little runt. I road the hell out of that thing even once I got larger bikes. I finally sold it when I graduated high school and left for the military. It stopped firing and rather than mess with it, I sold it to the neighbor kid for $50, knowing it would be an easy fix to get going again and he deserved to get as much fun out of it as I had for 10 years. The report was that two weeks later a little red blur was seen repeatedly going up and down the road. Full tuck. Balls to the wall. I couldn't think of a more deserving kid!
