"the motorcycle diaries"

Havent actually watched it yet. It was in the $5 bin at Walmart. One of these days I'll put it in when I feel like reading a movie - Spanish audio, English subtitles.

great thread.

Just watched Cycles South on Youtube.

What a blast, and obviously heavily influenced by the release of Easy Rider two years earlier.

Ha Ha, I didn't realize when I first saw it, that one of my best friends, Bill, played the rural Nevada County Sheriff. When he told me, I had to watch it again.

I can't believe I didn't recognize him.

Mondo Enduro is the best IMO - A bunch of regular guys with normal depth pockets, on the adventure of a lifetime. Fabulous!

Not sure if they seriously give out any useful info about the TENERE but I really enjoyed this little series that shows some great ADV riding.

This thread needs a bump.

I recently watched "why we ride" and although it has a lot of pirate stuff, it does try to grasp the feeling we all get when riding.
