Re: Why We Ride - anybody seen this documentary yet?

I've seen the promos but not the film. It is supposed to show in the LA area in December, but I don't think I will travel the 200 mile round trip to see it...

Pat, Houston still has tickets. Not the funnest ride from the Hill Country to the swamp (sorry, meant Bayou) city, but might be worth it for the movie.

Re: Why We Ride - anybody seen this documentary yet?

BTW, I sent them a question on their face book site asking when it will be released in Canada, they responded that it will be released in 2014, no specific month. Since it seems that it is a limited release I will most likely have to see it in Ottawa,Ontario since the Quebec Government makes it mandatory to have all english films dubbed in French before their release to the public.

Re: Why We Ride - anybody seen this documentary yet?

Yes, Hector, I could travel the 3+ hours to Houston, but the problem is timing. I'd have to spend the night & I have one of the few big sales for the studio right after that....or I'd go! Gonna call the Alamo Drafthouse Theaters to see if they'll pick it up.
If you look at the site, with 75-100 per sold seats the movie can be had for a showing.

Re: Why We Ride - anybody seen this documentary yet?

it was supposed to be shown in NYC this past Wednesday, but the sprinkler system in the theater FROZE, so it was cancelled. I ordered it on CD and got it delivered yesterday. I will show it in my home theater Sunday night. No charge and free popcorn for all those attending.
I may do additional showings for folks in my area if there is enough interest

Re: Why We Ride - anybody seen this documentary yet?

thanks to the wonders of the w.w.w. i saw it friday night in the privacy of my home together with my wife (she's a rider too).
it definitely has some touching moments but i think it misses a bit by concentrating mostly on the usa scene.
two wheels and riding are a way of life mostly in east asia and the contribution to the sport by brits, italians, germans and such is unnoticed and that's a shame.

Re: Why We Ride - anybody seen this documentary yet?

Saw it Sunday evening on the big screen and will probably order the DVD.
The local Yamaha dealer sponsored the event, gave out swag, door prizes
and $20 off coupons.
