Ok... its very wierd if you didn't live in the era... but Easy Rider.

The Worldest Fastest Indian is a GREAT GREAT GREAT movie, regardless of biker connection. I can not express how good this movie is.

Not sure if you consider it a movie but "Long way around" & "Long way Down" videos are inspirational and really makes you want to take a LONG road trip on your bike.

What do you guys think about my suggestions?

Got any more?

Easy Rider is more of a essay on the times than a biker movie. World's Fastest Indian is a great movie. Wild Hogs if you're into comedy, although it's too predictable. Hells Angels on Wheels was interesting from a documentary standpoint.

The Wild One is the quintessential biker movie, and is based on a real person and 'gang'. The most interesting thing about this movie is that while you're watching it, you think: "Yeah, cliche biker gang." But what you need to realize is that this movie is what caused the cliche to begin with. Instead of using pre-conceived notions, it created those notions for the general public. Later, gangs like Hells Angels, the Warlocks, and the Mongols merely took it to the next level and confirmed what people had seen in the movie.

Do not, under any circumstances, watch Hell Ride. What a mess.

Easy Rider was the worst movie I ever saw. And I think it was more about dope heads and hippies than bikes. LOL

World's Fastest Indian is one of my favorite movies.

I love Wild Hogs. I liked Macy's character.

I justed watched Harley Davidson and the Marlbro Man last weekend. Another crappy flick.

Tony Scott's supposed to be doing a movie on the life of Sonny Barger soon. That will probably be good.

I've seen Biker Boyz and Torque and hated them both.

I honestly can't think of many more.

If you guys are into old B type 70's biker movies then you have to see The Northville Cemetary Massacre. You michigan guys would recognize the territory. It was filmed in Northville,Plymouth and other local areas. The biker gang is the actual Detroit Scorpions that changed there name for the movie.

I would think with all the Harleys here that the all time favorite would be "Wild Hogs". When Travolta blew up the bar and at the end of the credits when they had the out-takes were hilarious!!

Dude I was watching it weekly on Starz. LOL I know it by heart. I let my buddy borrow my DVD of it and have yet to get it back and that was like 6 months ago!

I just read that they were getting ready to start filming part 2 and got Travolta back for a sequel, which he never does, and Disney stopped it because the directors last movie bombed. Old Dogs or whatever it was.

I forgot about Hell Ride. I don't remember it much but remember being disappointed when I saw it.
