    They extended the deadline in Birmingham and more people bought tickets so it may still shown if about 15 more buy tickets.

    Saw this movie tonight in Ft. Lauderdale. I really enjoyed it and am so glad I saw it on the big screen. Most people clapped at the end.

    I'm sure someone will come up with before and after extracurricular activities. I plan on participating so I can justify the long trip down from Huntsville. It's not just a movie but also a chance to meet some fellow riders.

    If you have 2 passes for the 2 pm, and cannot use them, I will buy them.

    I've been to see the movie. I traveled 1.5hrs each way to meet up with some fellow ADVer's to hang out at a local Applebee's before the movie and shoot the shit.

    The movie was filled with families who ride, patch holder bikers, sleezie bikers, some sleezie ADV riders myself included.

    The movie itseld has something for everyone. No matter what your decipline. Yea sure as someone else said. "I know why I ride"... I too was bit by the bug at age 6 and at 50+ I still ride Hare Scrambles/Enduros' and the occasionally Rally!!!

    I Hope this Movie comes to my area again so that I have the ability to see it again with my Wife and Kids (3 & 4yrs old) this time. I want them to see it so they know why it is that Daddy drags them out to different places all summer to go riding. Pretty soon They will be out on the trails telling me why they too ride!!!!:clap:clap:clap

    I you go see this movie and at some point Don't feel that lump come into your throat your really NOT that into motorcycles as you might think you are!!!:evil

    Hey redbud!! :wave
    I liked it, but it's no On Any Sunday. (even though Mert is featured):norton
    Well worth a look without doubt, but the soundtrack is AWFUL imo and distracting!!!
    it's a little sappy and a little preachy but worth every bit of 12 bucks.

    all true MRX!
    I figure the best audience for this are kids in a moto family. Hard to resist the draw of a family that rides together.

    Oh so that's why I needed a sweat rag. That's it, a sweat rag, not a tissue. :wink:

    Good to see it on the big screen. Hope I can get it on BluRay.

    I'm planning on seeing it on the 16th of Jan in west palm, but for instance, can't buy a ticket until the day of cause I never know if I'm going to be in town or not.

    I work at Sloans, which is a large dealership in Murfreesboro TN (Just outside of Nashville)... We had signed up to be a dealer to partner with a local theater to have a showing and we have not heard anything back from them... I am confident that in the Nashville area we have enough motorcyclists (not just adv/dual sport ppl) to get it shown in a theater. I know I have personally talked to several people just in casual conversation who would love to go...

    If they ever get back with us we will get it shown! But like I said... haven't heard anything yet... :deal

    it's more about racing, family and cruisers than ADV dual sport stuff.

    I think you can start a Tugg event and just put out the word to your clientele

    Just an FYI, I believe to do it as dealer will cost you $3k. Not sure if that is guaranteed tix sales or a flat out charge. Best you just do "friend of Murfreesboro" and let folks buy tix themselves.

    There was a showing scheduled in Nashville. I'm guessing they did not sell enough tickets. No doubt there are plenty of riders in just about any large city that would love to see it. The problem is getting the word out.

    I'm just happy that I was able to see it in Birmingham.
