Sit Stay Ride: The Story of America's Sidecar Dogs

Last fall I bought a DVD of the motorcycle movie The Best Bar in America. It's excellent.

Today I received an email from them announcing their latest motorcycle movie about sidecars and dogs. I pledged to their Kickstarter campaign. Check out the video trailer.

Below is the email I received:
I hope you're having an awesome day. For the last six months, my wife and I have been pouring our lives into a new documentary film called "Sit Stay Ride: The Story of America's Sidecar Dogs." Today, we've released the trailer and launched a Kickstarter campaign. The stories of these people and dogs hitting the highways and byways of America are absolutely incredible. Check it out:

It would mean the world to us if you would click the like button below. One click makes a huge difference.

Thanks so much for your support of independent motorcycle movies,

Eric

PS- please forward this email to friends, family, co-workers... anyone you think might be interested. the more the better! Here's the link again: http://kck.st/1eXvC22
I'm not in any way connected with it -- I just really enjoyed their last movie and hope to see this one.

Laugh

Ned,

I supported the first movie too. Not Avatar quality, but still well worth the $$.

I'm planning on sending them a couple $$ for #2 also.

BTW, how's the next Wumpa coming along? That BMW 1150 rig back east for $17 K sure looks tempting to me every time I pencil out the cost of starting new on one. Wonder why he overloaded it with all that stuff he has hanging on it?

Dale

I signed on and pledged backing!

Wimbrooklyn told me I had to.

PS. Bruce is a hell of a good name for a dog, if I do say so myself.

Thanks, though credit where it's due, the green machine was built by Chris (BMWEURO) at Boxer Metal. I'm sure he'd put another one together for you, if you ask him nicely enough

This is such a great project to be involved in. My company hooked them up with a Movi camera stabilization gimbal to finish up the project, can't wait to see what Eric and Geneva get up to with it. Good work guys!

As of tonite, they have 148 pledges and over 25% of their goal. Good start!

This thread got pushed down to Page 2, so--

To The Top

They still need $18,000. I shared it on my Facebook page. Just trying to think of ways to spread the word.

I did the same after making a small donation, the more we all can get the word out, the better.

This would be a nice documentary based on the footage they already have.

We're going to be in it too, trying to iron out a date we can meet up.

They have an initial trailer already (do t think it's been released widely yet), and it amazes me how many ADVers are in it. I think it's going to be AWESOME!

In! Talked to Eric last night to iron out some details for filming here in NC. Bryson has been stroking his beard all morning in anticipation.
