Inevitably, the bike will have a twenty-nine speed gearbox too. And no matter how fast they're going, when the bike goes over a puddle of water (or just a wet spot for that matter) it's low-side time.

Anyone who has ever seen the movie "LeMans" will understand the difference between great racing footage and a great movie. As was shown in the "making of LeMans" segment that recently aired on Speedvision, the filming of the race was a labor of love on the part of Steve McQueen and some studio types he was able to get excited. As racing footage it is unequalled, incredible shots of incredible cars (Porsche 917s and 908s, Ferrari 512s, etc) at speed both during the actual race and afterwards. See it if you get a chance, this weekend on Speedvision. But as a movie it doesn't even rate one star, because it lacks everything that makes a good movie other than action, such as plot, dialogue, acting, character development. Even the soundtrack (and I'm not talking about flat-12 symphonies) was so lame as to be hilarious.



My point is, what is exciting to do for us and exciting to watch for many is not enough to support an entertaining film without a lot of things that most of us find simply annoying, such as that lame love story in "Pearl Harbor" that took up so much of the time that could have been spent blowing up more stuff!!!

Amazing...we were talking about that movie yesterday. And it was pretty good, from a gearheads perspective (any flic with a nude Lauren Hutton must get at least one, er...thumb up). But we couldn't remember the name of the other actor (not Robert Redford), the guy who was also in "Bonnie & Clyde". Can anyone help?

michael j. pollard is the actor's name (opposite robert redford). he did a lot of wacko type guys in various movies. "black rain" has some neat street racing scenes (sort of hokey, a sportster beating a sport bike), and a dirt bike chase scene. hope ll and the movie are alright and do well. the first "rollerball" was good only because james caan was good in it. ll has always been up front with his motorcycle enthusiasm- he rode a gsxr on to the stage at one of his mtv award appearances, it's about time he got real with it. the dmx video, "ruff rider anthem" was the coolest thing i have seen on mtv, up to that point, and i have been watching it since it debuted.

yeah, but it was Bud Ekins that did the jump, not Steve McQueen. Steve is still the man though.

Sidewinder One was Silver Dream Racer in the dirt. Some good race footage, though.
