When I first began riding, every motorcyclist I knew had seen the movie "On any Sunday". It was not uncommon for me to hear the words "that was the film that inspired me to start riding". Today I am surprised at the number of riders I meet who have never ever seen or even heard of this film.
On Any Sunday is a humorous, in-depth look at the exciting and sometimes dangerous world of professional motorcycle racing. Originally released in 1971 by director Bruce Brown (The Endless Summer) this film remains one of the best documentaries ever produced. On Any Sunday showcases every aspect of motorcycling, from road racing to motocross, ice racing to hill climbs. You follow the old school pros like Malcolm Smith, Mert Lawwill, Dick Man & Steve McQueen on their racing season adventures.
The film is now available on DVD or in the 30th anniversary box set. I recently picked up the box set and have to say the extra footage is worth it. The bonus DVD's detail the making of film and give a look at some of the racers in present day.
If you ride, this is a must see! Watching this film really gives you an understanding of what you are a part of as a motorcyclists.
