Default Re: Faster Movie (MotoGP)

This documentary (not a movie) was very well done. I've followed racing for a number of years and the thing about this film is that it's kind of hard to follow. They jump around a good bit and that's fine, but for the uninitiated, a little confusing. My hope is that a film like this can get people interested in motorcycle racing. It's sad that Torque and Biker Boyz were in locations across the country and Faster is known only by people like us. Overall, great film. Loved the doctor, the perfect Italian.



Hope we get a GP in the US next year!!

This movie can't hold a candle to Biker Boyz and Torque. Rossi is a wimp compares to the riders in these movies. Rossi is a wimp compared to the REAL riders in these movies.

Ahh, another pearl by the swine! I was wondering how you've been since the toilet seat hit you on the head.

I thought you would never buy an H.D. Then again you did say that you want a cruiser someday.

If you live near Atlanta, I was told that there will be a ride (partially sponsored by Ducati) with Ben Bostrom, Kevin Schwantz, and Ewan MacGregor in attendance riding from a dealership in Alpharetta (a suburb north of Atlanta) to see the movie on the big screen in Midtown Atlanta. I'm not connected to the shop, but you can search or call Moto Britalia in Alpharetta, GA. I'll see you there. I was told this will happen the evening of Thursday, September 2nd.

I rented them from my local shop at the time, but I think they're also advertised in Cycle News (usually a full page ad). They're real videos, with no hyped "drama," and a lot sharper filming. Some of the races won by Schwantz and Wayne Gardner were unbelievable. Also, there's no re-used footage (like in Faster).
