Uhhh, correct me if I'm wrong, but if they weren't acting then wouldn't the story line get hard to follow??

Or would every movie be like Seinfield???  Orrrrrrr, all documentaries??  I'm perplexed.......... .

 Yeah ,like you weren't already perplexed  :rolleyes:

 The point is that Hopper was a decent enough actor to convince everyone he was a motorbiker . When the Art of the Motorcycle was in NYC Hopper took some riding lessons so he could ride with a group of actors to the museum . Memory says he may have crashed .

    If you have Amazon Prime they have a surprising amount of motorcycle related films.

How about naming some of them?

Thanks.

Yeah, Quit toying Bubba!





Not a movie, a series: The Motorbike Show with Henry Cole

https://ultimatemotorcycling.com/tv-shows-and-video-channels/

Henry Cole is one of those slightly eccentric, yet charming Brits who just happens to be mad about motorcycles. His show appears weekly on mainstream TV in the UK, however, in the USA, he is relatively unknown.
The Motorbike Show has Henry and friends restoring, showing, buying, and riding motorcycles of all ages and description—all presented in an engaging and humorous style.

sometimes lightweight, still enjoyable. The enthusiasm is infectious. Bonus!! Bike rebuilds contain no rattle-can black paint jobs, bobbed fenders or pipe wrap! Yay!

He didn't crash, the guy in the pick up shot him.
That movie's been around since 1969, maybe you should watch it when you get a chance  :rolleyes:

 I was referring to an incident circa 2004 , not from the movie . A small group of celebrities were going to the Guggenheim exhibit , for some reason the name Lauren Hutton keeps popping into my head . Anyway , seem to remember Hopper had a get off . .

Here's a few independent bike themed films I have got in on the "kick start" financing.  Low budget, niche films. 

"Girl Meets Bike." (Guzzi content)   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkrexqIKmMs  Made by film students in Minnesota.

"Best Bar in America"   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qf3hWk9pzI   Indy film company in Montana

"Sit Stay Ride: The Story of America's Sidecar Dogs"   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyLw7iYVlo8   

No they ain't gonna win any awards, but I like 'em.

If you like vintage motorcycle racing, Isle of Man TT 1935, try to find "No Limit", with George Formby. I have a copy, but I was surprised to see it on TCM last month.  Also, "Twice Upon a Caravan", the around the world story of Robert Fulton, Jr on a Douglas around 1932. Lastly, "The Pace that Thrills" from 1952, scrambles, TT, hillclimbs and the Wall of Death, with Bill Williams, Robert Armstrong and John Hamilton.

Why is it that ugly girls resort to tattoos, piercings, and funky hair coloring in an effort to accentuate their ugliness?  That trailer makes motorcyclists look trashy and slutty.

Prophet replies: "No. I left my wallet at home ...5 years ago."

I watched the Cycles South today. Was that a for real life filmed adventure or a planed rehearsed movie with actors?
Either way it was very enjoyable and brought back lots of memories from my trail ridding days 50 years ago. Thanks

 A bit of both probably , seems the 3 guys were friends , and some of it was spontaneous , but parts of it were certainly scripted and maybe even rehearsed . It is just a fun , slightly silly romp .
