Article: Why We Ride Movie - Dirt Rider Magazine

Reviews

Pick: Why We Ride: Film Review - Hollywood Reporter

Pan: ‘Why We Ride’ Review: Bryan H. Carroll’s Love Letter to Racing | Variety

Consider it a modern day On any Sunday On Any Sunday (1971) - IMDb

I personally don't feel compelled to see it, but it might be interesting if packaged as an event.

2 Tickets bought... See you guys there


2001 GSXR 1000 (The bike that lit the afterburner on the liter class world)
2012 Monster 1100 Evo
2003 Yamaha YZFR6 (track only)

mmm... carbon fiber


It appears as if roughly half the people in this country think that they're in mortal danger from their own government. That's a lot of people sensing a lot of malice and threat. I worry that I don't see it. Sure, I see inefficiency and incompetence, but I've always seen that – regardless of which party's in office. And frankly, I've always welcomed it. I don't like my big bureaucracies to be cold, calculating, profit-making enterprises driven by a steely, clear-headed singular vision. A cursory glance through history would indicate that well-organized governments tend to enjoy well-organized parades, followed by well-organized ethnic cleansing. Which is why I celebrate the magnificent, muddle-headed ineptitude of our democracy. As far as I'm concerned, a little confusion and waste may keep the trains from running on time, but it also keeps people like me from getting a one-way ticket in a cattle car. Are our tax dollars being misspent on poorly run social programs? You bet! Do we get more buck for our bang at the local Post Office, Amtrak station, nuclear submarine or methadone clinic? Of course we do! But keep in mind that bureaucrats who can't find their ass with a flashlight and a hand mirror are not likely to find you either. To paraphrase Bobby McGee: “Freedom's just another word for who the hell's in charge here?!”

Looks like Ted Simon at 1:47 in the trailer. I read his book Jupiter's Travels years ago. He, in the mid-70s, as a novice biker, went around the world on an unreliable Triumph, sending regular despatches to the newspaper he worked for.
