Thanks for sharing, LR. I don't know how you found it, but I want to thank you for finding it.

The movie trailer is really fantastic. Through the entire trailer, there was not one accident, death, negative connotation that would imply 'murder' cycles. I believe the trailer hits the nail on the head -- community, family and freedom.

Family? My father had a Yamaha YSD2 250 and bought us kids mini-bikes from Kidde-City in New Jersey. I learned to moto-cross on a 60cc Yamaha enduro and moved up to the MX/YZ 80s.

Community? More bikers will talk to other bikers just for the sense of community.

Freedom? When I ride with one of my kids on the back, even though we go on the same road - it's always a different trip/ride for the both of us. We see things differently.

Again, I can't wait for the movie.

Yes, pretty cool seeing some of those old bikes and their riders.

I ride because 50 years ago my dad owned the Honda shop and said that everyone in our family would ride until they couldn't do it anymore. I was 6 and riding everything I could reach the ground on. He is 81 years old and has just decided it is time to give it up. Not because he wants to, but because he just doesn't have the balance and reflexes any more. No matter what bike I show up with, he has to throw a leg over it and start it up.

I still do 30,000 miles a year on bikes, and only hope I get more than that after I retire.

Nice! Everything looks nice... I'm pretty excited about this. We got some good movies out right now...If you like cars RUSH, is a pretty good movie too. High ratings on rotten tomatoes.
