    The only other thing I have to add is, when will these moviemakers realize that we have NO interest in watching somebody's head/face as they talk? Maybe show them for a second and then cut to their bike. We want to see bikes and people riding them. Not people talking about them!
    Sorry, rant over.
    How come you watch salt ghost with now volume? That movie is great! I love hearing that motor fire up the first time in decades.

    I give that 5 out of 5 stars, best independent film I have seen in a while.

    I liked the film but as others have already said, the narration was a bit over the top.

    Anyone else notice that Kurpius kick-starts his bike a lot easier than most guys with Ironheads (me included)? Does anyone know if he runs low compression pistons? I have to jump up to get enough force to kick my Ironhead but Kurpius keeps his left leg on the ground when he kicks over his bike.

    Fuck yeah, he's been in a lot of good shit!
    Terminator 2
    Copland
    Strange Wilderness
    X-Files
    Walk the Line

    All in all, as much as I think the movie is corny in places and overly serious, I give respect to anyone that takes a trip like that on old bikes. If I had friends I'd want to do the same thing!

    It was a great mid-day break from wrenching. Inspired me to get back out in the garage and get my project finished so I could cruise the back roads this year. I find it hard to find people that want to even take a day trip for a few hours, so i appreciate their spirit. I think the movie should be taken lightly as entertainment. Also...would be awesome if there was much more motorbike movies out there to watch. It's just good that people of all kinds and ages are passionate about old bikes. This film helped inspire my buddy to ditch his XS400 Cafe racer cars n coffee mobile, in search of back country road tripper.

    I'm on the same boat, so I have to ride alone, maybe someday I'll will get friends, but I guess I'm not made for "bromance"...

    Finally made time to watch this last night (on Netflix). I was expecting it to be a lot worse based on some comments here.

    The narration was annoying but overall the flick was enjoyable. It's a bunch of dudes who rode cross country together and obviously had a blast doing it. I can't imagine anyone that actually rides their bikes looking at this footage, thinking about the experience these guys shared, the scenery shown, etc. and complaining about it not living up to some expectation you have for an edited documentary. It's about 21 days on the road, not about Brooklyn Invitational coverage (which is already covered to death). What more do you want?


    Agreed on the Netflix thing. Even if the movie was released on the correct date on Netflix, I'd still be annoyed if I paid for a copy and had no idea it would be on Netflix within weeks, let alone being accidentally released beforehand. Delay that thing 6mos to a year if you're going to sell it to Netflix.

    Their excuse of "Netflix released it early" is bullshit. I'm in film distribution and everyone involved would have had to sign contracts. They gave full control of the release date to Netflix or they didn't notice the availability section.

    .
    I think your point would be stronger had it been shot/edited as a documentary, some of the riding shots were beautiful, but most of why they were so beautiful was that they were plotted, there is nothing wrong with plotting your shots while making a movie, it's the right way to do it, but it's the wrong way to make a documentary, I think that is allot of why this flick is hitting so many wrong, it's like the flick doesn't know what it wants to be, that and open appature dolly shots of dudes hosing each other off, but the intermix of documentary style, and scripted movie style, just doesn't go that well, it leaves most viewers feeling disconected, but not really knowing why.

    All the respect in the world to the work that went into this, there was a great deal of time and effort on the filming end, and I appreciate people trying to make entertainment for us, but with the heavy-handed narration, and using the shot selection to prop the characters up, I was kinda left feeling that this wasn't made for us.

    Watched this last night. I enjoyed it for the most part. Would have loved to see the footage of the Brooklyn Invitational though.

    IMO, 3 outta 5.

    I was cool with it. I actually went back and watched it a second time cause my girl wanted to see it. I was ok without the Brooklyn Invitational stuff. It was about a road trip not a Bike show... It was a little over dramatized but I'm sure they are wanting to pull in other viewers rather than just us. Overall it wasn't bad to me.
