Bike Movies..

What do you think about recent flicks like Biker Boyz & Torque

Damn, I should have put a 4th option on that poll, for "Not sure" ..but I can't edit the poll now, at least not that I can see...Shan if you feel so inclined, feel free to put a 4th option there.




I won't tell, but you just got passed by a Kat !!!

Torque is alittle bit on the unrealistic side...especially when your talking about riding a Y2K bike, in the city, at full speed ??

But Biker Boyz, actually wasnt all that bad, if you ask me..it brings into focus, a way of life that exists all over the world. Sure it will just make more people pissed off who think all we do is ride fast, are unsafe, and are a nuisance...b ut you'll always have those. Im kinda split on that movie, but overall, it was a pretty decent flick, IMHO. :bike:

My .02 is I love the stunts and would love it to become more main stream and controlled. It's a great talent. The movie part of it, it's only a movie and I take them at that value. But I would like to see more bike movies come out.

I like Biker Boyz better. It was a more realistic.

I thought Torque, was kinda dumb..but thats just me :ack:

I did like biker boyz though...I never knew the "underground" bike stunting & racing world was so indepth and organized.

I will admit Im tired of seeing though, as Matt has watched it like a million times.. :smilelol:
