    Wild ones?

    There are a bunch of old Harley movies with biker gangs that are cheesy and campy but they remind me of growing up around my Dad and his biker friends.

    Also there are some contemporary movies (Fled) with good bike scenes.

    Don't Forget Biker Boys and Torque!

    and of course.

      I forgot about the Wild Ones.... Johnny, what are you rebelling against.... "what have you got?"

      Love it!

      I should add Hells Angels Forever and Mask

        Mask is off my list because it has Cher in it. :P

          Yeah, I agree- mask is not must see, like Worlds Fastest Indian- perhaps the best "hollywood" bike story ever told.

          If a '28 Indian can go that fast, can a hawkgt/bros?

            That is a great movie. I still have to get my wife to see it. I own a copy and she just won't sit down with me.

            Maybe tonight.

            Anthony Hopkins was great in that.

            I love the beach scene where he can't get it started then blows by all those punks like they are standing still....

              My favorite also... that plus the look on the faces of the timers when he finally gets to make a speed run

              We'll have to have a movie night... sometime when it really is cold outside

                I think The Great Escape counts because Steve McQueen was such a badass.

                      Don't forget the farcical Mission: Impossible 2, which has a pretty good ~10 minute bike chase/stunt scene near the end. At one point Ethan Hunt does a turnaround stoppie with one hand while firing a gun with the other.

                        The Returner has a similar stunt. Definitely worth seeing.

                        If you like Torque (and are given to laughing at dorky movies) the Bollywood flick DHOOM is just the greatest. DHOOM 2 (in theaters), not so much.

                          I watched Torque for the hot Blonde.

                            Who remembers Angie Jolie riding onscreen in Gone in 60 Seconds?

                            Oooh... she made a great blonde.
