Format: DVD
Absolutely loved this film.

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.

A movie that chronicles the passion of people who "have the bug" for riding motorcycles. The people interviewed exude the sort of passion that only people who have toiled at successful start-ups have experienced. This movie makes it clear that success and doing something well as as much to do with passion and desire as it does skill....the two things work together and build on each other.

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.

Guys ... I am from Germany ... so we're used to be able to ride faster than 75mph - even 180mph if the streets allow it. :-)
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!

This will left your spirits and get your blood moving. It was a Christmas gift and was in the player moments after I opened it. It got the whole family in the mood for a ride even though it was in the 20's. I've passed it on to friends and hope to get it back at some point.

I saw it last night at Franklin Mills Mall in north Philly. The theater was packed and there were a lot of familiar faces. The cinematography was excellent - breathtaking shots! The message was great, but in my honest opinion it got a bit preachy for me. It included many facets of the motorcycle culture including how motorcycling started and the culture developed over the years. There were parts on street biking, dirt biking, short tracks, road racing, motocross, motoGP and cruisers. I felt there was a large focus on motorcycle riding with the family. Also, there was really nothing about Baja, Rallye racing like Dakar, and very little on dual sporting. I have a feeling that there were trying to go a different route than On Any Sunday and Dust to Glory (two of my favorite movies).

Go see it - or buy the DVD and share it with friends.

Anyone who watches this should recognize it as a sleek propaganda movie: The sound track is stirring, the photography emotional, and every bias of the public against motorcycles is dutifully addressed: "We are friendly, and you can pet us!", "Look at the two-year olds on their mini and dirt bikes, of course it's safe, and it promotes family coherence!", "Awww, MCs don't just engage in gun running and prostitution, they also donate to charity!"

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!
