Why We Ride (Motorcycle Documentary)

The wife and I went to see a showing of a very neat motorcycle documentary in La Jolla last night. We were surrounded by other motorcycle enthusiasts--and several fellow members of the group I ride with locally -- San Diego Adventure Riders (LINK).

We enjoyed the film very much. It was reminiscent of Bruce Brown's most excellent flick, On Any Sunday.

I smiled, laughed and nodded in recognition along with the other riders in the audience.

Here's the movie's synopsis: Why We Ride is a story about who we are. Individuals with a desire to dream, discover and explore. Seeking a life outside our daily confinements and sharing those moments together. It’s a story about the journey, not the destination. Motorcycles represent the milestones of our lives. From a kid’s dream come true, to a retiree’s return to freedom. From a family riding together on the sand dunes, to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons – the bond is the same. It’s about the passion of the riders and the soul of their machines. Your senses will heighten as the world rushes in, your heart will beat to the pulse of the engine, your mind will race and set you free. Once you let a motorcycle into your life, it will change you forever.

Now who can't agree with that?!

Highly recommended viewing for the bike enthusiast in your life (and the DVD is available for Christmas).

Here is the trailer to get people excited: LINK
