Wasn't sure what to expect, other than that it was about motorcycles. It covered many aspects of motorcycling, from history to hill climbs, to motorcycle clubs and family camping excursions centered around motorcycling.
Motorcycling is such a vast topic with so many people who love it and have their own unique understanding and niche, it would be difficult for a film to cover ALL of it.
But Why We Ride does a great job of covering many aspects. Note that it is not merely footage of dirt bikes sailing over dunes, such as you might see on a loop in a bike shop, for example. It is also not a step-by-step history/chronology of motorcycling and every single different type of bike (cruisers vs sport bikes vs dirt bikes, for example). Why We Ride focuses on the SOUL and the PASSION of what it means to be on a motorcycle, what it means to be a part of the global family of riders, and the unspoken LOVE understood by all. This is why it was so great that all of the speakers/actors in the film were introduced only at the conclusion during the closing credits. Because first and foremost, they love to ride. If you love to ride, you'll love this film.
I have the bug.....I love to ride. But even my wife who isn't a rider and isn't at all drawn to the experience and exposure to the elements found the movie very entertaining. She felt the enthusiasm and excitement that drive the various riders shown to be able to perform to the level they did. The cool thing was that many of them seemed like pretty regular people, as regular and you and me.....but they had a passion ignited by their connection to their experiences on a their motorcycle.
The movie was quite broad in it's treatment of the various kinds of motorcyclist....from dirt to street to track. From long distance riding to drag racers, to motorcycle rally goers. Yes, there were probably some areas left uncovered, but not for the lack of general coverage....it was clearly not focused on a single, or even just a couple of kinds of motorcycle enthusiast activities.
However ... I am not one of those motorcycle outlaws or rowdies. Most of the time I enjoy making a tour with my friends.
So I am not a member of a 'motorcycle club' and I hate all those idiots (as last time in NYC) who give us biker a bad image.
This movie shows everybody how the motorcycle was born and how and mostly WHY people are attracted to ride a bike.
It a film showing not only beautiful landscapes and all shapes and models of bikes but also the people and their families.
That film is the best way of showing a 'non-biker' - as the title says - 'why we ride' and also why bikers are so unique at all.
So guys ... I don't know what more to tell ... so I just add the DVD to my cart and check out to watch the film @home again!
Go see it - or buy the DVD and share it with friends.
I have a motorcycle, my wife got her license shortly after riding with me, so I did sip the cool aid already. That's why I gave it so many stars. I can't give it five stars, because if you go to YouTube and look at some of the Triumph commercials, say [...] they'll give you a similar feel, just brand-specific. This was not a documentary by any means.
Watch it, though! It's awesome!
