Best motorcycle movie ever?

Recommended Posts

Ok not exactly a movie and not exactly a dirt bike, but who here was alive and actually remembers seeing this in prime time, it is kinda obscure as a motorcycle themed TV show that only lasted 1 season in 1985 (for obvious reasons)

Street Hawk (think Knight Rider only with a motorcycle, as a matter of fact the premise is almost a carbon copy) only "Jesse Mach" (main character/hero) raced motocross as part of his back story.

That bike in Street Hawk looks like a modern dual sport, kinda funny.

Well it is an all terrain attack motorcycle :banghead: A quick wikki search (take it with a grain of salt) says that it is based around an XR500 and the stunt bikes were CR250's (1984)

I am suprised that The Great Escape was not mentioned. The final scenes where Steve McQueen on a motorcycle being chased by nazis-epic! Besides for the chase scene probably one of the best movies ever made.

Also who remembers the terminatior 2, Arnold Schwarzenegger on the harley, and the kid on a CR80 being chased by the T1000 in the semi truck.

The problem with that (for me at least) is they dubbed over his XR100 with a CR80 (or other small 2 stroke) sound and ruined it. He apprently had 7 or 8 speeds on that thing. :banghead: I'm a 2-stroke guy too, but I hate it when they do that crap. Same goes for that crap movie Torque. They dub over the sweet sound of a Honda RC51 (v-twin) with a inline 4 sound.

I was going to mention that, she must have been a prototype Honda was testing with the new dual 10 speed gear box :thumbsup:. Besides the sound dubbing it was a pretty good chase scene.

O.K. not really a movie, it's a documentary and not about dirt bikes but MotoGP. "Faster" is one of my favorites. Here it is on Vimeo. Troy341

Any Given Sunday is a classic. Good ol' MSR.

Isn't that a football movie, directed by Oliver Sone? Haha I kid, I know what you meant.
