Thumbs up Classic "motorcycle" films

I came across this interesting list of motorcycle-centric movies. Some I loved, some not as much, and some I will definitely track down.

http://silodrome.com/top-20-motorcycle-movies/

Have you seen these? Any that should have been added?

  • Faster (2003)
  • Fastest (2011)
  • Joey, the Man who conquered the TT
  • Supercross - Behind the Dream
  • Twist of the wrist (more instructional, but a must-watch)
  • Dust to Glory (The Baja 1000)
  • Moto 5: the movie (...3,4,5)

TV

  • Long Way Down
  • Long Way Round

I'm probably forgetting some, but these are the ones that stand out to me.

I have 2 copies of the book, Take it to the Limit by Peter Starr, on sale. They are autographed by Mr. Starr. It makes a great coffee table book. It retails for $50, on sale for $20. I put them in stock last year thinking they would make great X-mas gifts and sold 3 of the 5 books I had ordered. Peter Starr was here at Wild West prior to the movie and signed the books at that time. 281-392-8850, ask for Bill in parts if anyone is interested.

Loved the scene with the old guy selling his Norton.

I was just about to post that although I'd have to say it would be second to "On Any Sunday" IMHO.
