Another motorcycle doco

Discussion in 'Multimedia' at netrider.net.au started by Duffman, Jun 6, 2007.

  1. I'm sure this has been discussed here before but i cant for the life of me find the thread.

    "Riding Solo to the Top of the World"

    An Indian dude rides solo to the Himalayas on a Royal Enfield. And I dont mean Ewan and Charlie style "solo" with a 14 million person support crew. I mean totally solo. He does the riding, the cooking, the camping, AND ALL THE FILMING.

    The scenery is nothing short of breathtaking.

    See the trailer here;


    I purchased the vid from the Australian distributors Motociclo (shop in St Peters for those in NSW) or http://www.motociclo.com.au/ or from the producers at http://www.dirttrackproductions.com/

    I havent seen it all yet but so far i am really enjoying it. Theres something extremely appealing about the simplicity of this "one man band", its probably the feeling that "i could do that too" that appeals more than LWR and LWD films.

    EDIT - Also, i just remembered, the vid shows possibly the best road sign ever: "DARLING I WANT YOU...BUT NOT SO FAST" :p :grin:
  2. Someone needs to make a list of all the good bike films and books. I'll copy down the name of this one and maybe hunt it down later.
  3. agree. a sticky should be made so we can add to it.

    here something for free:

    isle of man

  4. ahhh thanks guys, i knew someone had to have mentioned it already. Something is wrong with my searching skills cause i couldnt find it :)

    I'm surprised this doco hasnt generated more discussion on Netrider as it is a great film that i'm sure many people would enjoy.

    Costs $40 delivered to your door from Motociclo. Think it actually works out a bit cheaper buying it from the producers site, but i felt like going through the OZ link.

    +1 on the idea of a sticky for videos. Maybe keep all the discussions in a different thread but in the sticky just have the core info on what it is and where to get it.
