Why We Ride
By David Peterson I went to see the movie "Why We Ride" last night in Larkspur and it appeared to be an all biker audience! Anyone living here would enjoy seeing all the locations we ride in Southern California and a few familiar faces too.

I felt like there was too much repetitive talking and the soundtrack needed more variety. The movie lacked enough entertaining shots and was too narrow for the amount of information that easily could have been in the film. I think a little more focus on history would have tied the loop together leaving the viewer to walk away feeling it was a really great movie! There were lots of fun stories and responses to how great riding is and some of the cinematography was excellent. Overall, I did like the film and was glad I got to see it! I would recommend this film to anyone that loves bikes since we don't have many movies about motorcycles. "On Any Sunday" came across better; more like a Warren Miller Ski production. Id give it a 2 1/2 star rating out of 4. For comparison, Id rate On Any Sunday a 3.

I recognized Mert Lawwill of Tiburon because I met him with my dad at the Oregon Antique Club's annual chapter awards dinner and ride. I thought there could have been many more racers and bike guys included in the movie from a historical viewpoint. This was especially apparent for the Indian and Harley riders which were discussed for quite some time. I found the lack of name calling highly unusual. Like Perkins and Jones when they covered Ed Kretz the Iron Man. I saw number 33 Bill Brownell in the old footage several times! For instance, a funny man in the film talked about Brando's film "The Wild Ones" but didn't mention the Booze Fighters or go off on it. The film started really grabbing your attention as it slowly pulled you into a trance around a select few, but lacked enough action, riding, individual biographies, and bike events. They didn't even show Kenny Roberts on his one mile dirt bike even though they featured him several times. When I was about 15 I saw him fly out of sight through the hay bales at the Sacramento Mile. The race stopped for 45 minutes until the announcer yelled out "here he comes folks let's give him a big hand" as a pickup truck paraded Kenny down the track for the grand stands holding up his front forks with the front wheel still attached. He was ok!
