Dax Shepard, the writer, director, and actor in the upcoming movie adaptation of CHiPs, the TV series many motorcyclists grew up watching, is a huge motorcycle fan. Said Shepard in the interview below, “I love motorcycles and I’m always looking to do anything that can hold comedy and motor sports….There hasn’t been a motorcycle chase movie in I can’t even think of when, you know, the ’70s or something.” Consequently, this love of motorcycling has produced a film that is “100 percent motorcycle driven.”

Even if you don’t have fond childhood memories of CHIPS, your love of motorcycling should be satisfied by watching this movie.

CHiPs enters general release tomorrow, March 24.

Like most of the best happenings in his life, Evans stumbled into his motojournalism career. While on his way to a planned life in academia, he applied for a job at a motorcycle magazine, thinking he’d get the opportunity to write some freelance articles. Instead, he was offered a full-time job in which he discovered he could actually get paid to ride other people’s motorcycles – and he’s never looked back. Over the 25 years he’s been in the motorcycle industry, Evans has written two books, 101 Sportbike Performance Projects and How to Modify Your Metric Cruiser, and has ridden just about every production motorcycle manufactured. Evans has a deep love of motorcycles and believes they are a force for good in the world.
