Some of the cinematography was worth the 8 buck price of admission alone.
Got to look at bikes for about a hour on a winter night and the wife enjoyed it. Thumbs up IMO.

Yeah. I liked the movie for the cinematographic elements, and some of the stories. However, it did start to drag a bit, and really didn't dig deep enough in to WHY we ride, except that people love it. That said, if MWS has another party with a movie around it somewhere, I am there.

Pretty pictures but not a great film. It's easy to get enamored by sunsets and slow motion shots. From a cinematography and film making stand point it was mediocre. You can still enjoy it though and I did.

For winter bike porn it was pretty good.

I and my wife found the movie to be an enjoyable watch. It was several families and others talking about why they liked to ride. It was not and did not pretend to be a m/c history film even thought there was some interesting info/footage there. It was not trying to include or exclude brands. I was surprised by how much racing footage was in the film but several of the families / people were from the racing community so that was part of their story. Others were custom shop owners, event organizers, RTW riders
The wife liked it and summed it up this way...."I liked it, especially not have to listen to 2 guys swearing at each other all thru the move..."

Made for a nice getaway weekend in mid winter....

You have to do it with stories and words.
There is no true way to "explain" why we ride as it does not convey into words really. So you put up some nice pictures and have some folks do their best to explain the unexplainable. That was what the movie was.

You were expecting "Gone with the wind?"

No, thats a porn movie and puts "why we ride" into a whole other meaning.

I saw it here in Las Vegas with a few buddies. I enjoyed the movie, but like many previous observations, some things didn't add up well.

Extended interviews with mother and daughters that set records at Bonneville, but little or nothing of them actually riding.

Early Daytona footage, and an interview from some guy that won Daytona once, but no mention of Scott Russell, "Mr Daytona", 5 time winner. How can you just skip over that?

I don't want to listen to Arlen Ness (or anyone else) talking.

If they had chopped most of the interview footage (and lots of redundant images of people with the wind in their hair), they could have added a lot more different styles of motorcycle riding footage that ended up on the cutting room floor or wasn't shot at all.

Pretty good coverage of hill climbing, and I enjoyed that part, but no mention of observed trials at all. I kept waiting for that to show up, but it didn't.

A little coverage and a few pictures of the Rock store in California, but no mention of the Dragon in NC at all.
Riding that area of NC (and the north Georgia mountains) makes Mulholland seem like a ride around the block. But it didn't make the film because it isn't on the west coast.

Ever been HERE?? If you have, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Worth Seeing

Omissions, loose ends and organizational flaws aside, it was still worth seeing. Even choked me up in a couple of spots. Wife liked it too.

Sure, they coulda put ALL THAT STUFF in the movie and it would be 10 hours long and then you guys would complain about THAT

I watched people who share my passion...and it was cool

Kudos to the film maker

"How did I become friends with these people?"
