After recommendation from this forum I say "On Any Sunday". Brilliant! It shows the humble and courageous roots of motorcycling - where did the Americans go wrong just riding their HD cruisers?

The documentary "Why We Ride" is a good addition to the story, tracing the roots of motorcycling till today. Both movies worth watching.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

Also available from Full Throttle. How's the oke racing with his dog on the tank !  :biggrin:
Flattrack was the cheapest form of motorsport in those days. We only had a short track (400m) at Zanadu across the old Rainbow Drag Strip but racing without brakes against 20 other lunatics was magic. Also reminds me of the mass start at the Bapsfontein race. About 150 riders lined up abreast with a single farm gate about 500m further on - mayhem. Also the Toyota 1000 Desert Race. No loops like today. Start in Gabs, race 480 k's to Serowe and 480 k's back the next day. Man those were the days!

The iconic DS riders movie for sure. Spirit of adventure and freedom.


For many of the same reasons I love these two guys, comparing riding today with what it was. Us younger guys can learn a lot from them. Posted before but its worth a re-post I think.

Very good clip, BB!

I can obviously relate very strongly with On any Sunday 1, and I love that movie. The love of offroad biking just shines through in all their actions.
Today it is very different, not as far as enthusiastic riders are concerned, but the lack of riding land and the cost of equipment has become a problem.

Bruce Brown is the maker of this movie. Same guy that made Endless Summer (1966) surfing movie

Great racing you refer to , flat track, Baps GP, mx at Bickor my best years, the crowds, the affordabilty, remember watching On Any Sunday2 in the Ster movie complex bottom of claim street Hillbrow, sitting in the 1000 seater and the 3 bikes burst over the sand dune on this massive screen,  :biggrin: :biggrin:
