972 Breakdowns
« on: July 28, 2021, 02:35:30 PM »
A group of 5 young Germans, 3 gals and 2 guys set forth on an epic journey most of the way around the world on old Urals.

I watched it yesterday.  Easily my favorite adventure motorcycle movie of all time.  I loved all the "Long Way" series but honestly they all look like a cake walk compared to what these young folk pulled off.

Simply AMAZING.  And the movie is very well produced!  It has subtitles so don't worry.  I was not able to play it on my old DVD player for my TV so had to watch it on my computer.   I guarantee that you will love this movie.

The trailer looks awesome! That is quite an adventure they went on! Very brave or foolish, you decide, but certainly a memory for a life.
