How about...... African Odysee, "4 friends from Whakatane, New Zealand riding Cape town to London on motorbikes most wouldn't ride to the cow shed"
A good watch if you can get hold of a copy, awsome sound track too.

The Last Hurrah, a couple of older guys riding a 1965 Panther 650 and a 1954 Norton 600 from Beijing to Arnhem in 2005.Might still be able to get it from www.thelasthurrah.co.nz

MotoAfryka

What about Motoafryka?

I first heard about it here on ADV.
It was made by some of our Polish friends, including the infamous "Lordmaciek", who also made Moto Syberia.

It's a DVD telling their trip down the East side of Africa in 2005.

Good guys, great story, and some good humor.

Thanks.

There is an internet link:

I will add Salt and Gold to this list. Nothing like an inmates documentary to make for fun watching.

I have the "Get Lost Baja" and "Get Lost Oregon" movies. Both entertaining and kept my motorcycle addicted personality happy through till the end.

"The Ride" - Globebusters Richard and Julia take a bunch of strangers from ANC to Deadhorse to TDF. Pretty entertaining.
They also have one where they ride essentially the same ride alone trying to set a record. Cant' remember the name.
Nick Saunders "In Serarch of Dakar" isn't bad either.
Mondo Enduro and Terra Circa are still the best IMHO.

You can watch it for free here: http://www.hulu.com/watch/79438/on-any-sunday with a few advertisements. If you have Netflix, it and several related awesome old motorcycle videos are available for "Instant Viewiing." It's one of my favorite films, I've watched it several times. Not very "adventure"-related, though.

Enjoy!

Pray for the Wildcats

I am new to this thread, but had to comment. I didn't see "Pray for the Wildcats" and "Little Fauss and Big Halsey". These are classic with a bunch of stars early in their careers. I even have to keep an old vcr so I can watch my vhs copy of "Pray for the Wildcats". And while I am listing bike movies, here is my list of my favorites (not in any order):

Long Way Down (Adv)
Long Way Around (Adv)
Supercross (racing)
On Any Sunday (doc)
A day in the dirt (doc)
Pray for the Wildcats (fiction, Adv)
Blackwater 100 (doc)
Blackout (doc)
Little Fauss and Big Halsey (fiction, racing)
On Any Sunday 2 (doc)
Terrafirma (extreme)
Blackwater series (doc)
Black Rain (fiction)
Moto Crossed (fiction, kid theme)
Time Rider (fiction)
Grease 2 (fiction)

Just watched Mondo Enduro and Terra Circa. Loved both of them. Around the world on Suzuki DR-350 bikes! I bought both at Aerostich.

You guys missed Helge Pedersen's shameless self-promotional videos, Globeriders Silk Road, Indochina, Iceland and Eurasia. Actually they're quite good.

And Charley Boorman's By Any Means I and II have some motorcycling in them as well.

And Horizons Unlimited's Acheiveable Dream series is awesome, but it's more of a how-to series than an actual ride.

"Roadside Prophets"

Just for fun, not a big adventure movie, but has appearances by David Carradine and Arlo Guthrie.
