Thanks for showing the movie, it was good. I had watched ON ANY SUNDAY recently, that too is good. They also have ON ANY SUNDAY REVISITED which is also very good. If you have not seen either movie I would recommend it. Both movies are not as long but very good, the first one has Steve McQueen in it, not as the main character but in the movie and it is a documentary. It is dated but very good.
I have to say that while watching , WHY WE RIDE I had a desire to be riding and having the throttle wide open, you know that feeling don't you. You know that skimming across the surface of the earth , being propelled by an internal combustion engine, that sensation and sometimes that sensation of feeling free. thanks again

Contact Hank Barta. He coordinates meeting programs and events. This sounds like a good idea but might be better for a standalone activity due to length.

I'm new to the club but was wondering if we ever do "movie nights." If so, where/how do we go about it?

I do, I do, ,, me , me, I am interested. ,,, I remember a long time back being a kid ( I am still a kid )and for the first time watching the great escape with Steve McQueen. I am sure just about everybody has seen it, anyway watching that movie I knew I had to ride, the bug had bitten me even as a little kid. So, you have one interested party, Alex
