There hasn’t been a quality Hollywood-style motorcycle documentary since On Any Sunday in 1971 until Why We Ride was released in 2013.

The award-winning high-quality Why We Ride has a host of Hollywood production staff involved.

The beautifully shot feature-length motorcycle documentary features interviews with a host of motorcycle greats including 1969 AMA Grand National Champion Mert Lawwill who starred in the On Any Sunday motorcycle documentary.

Other motorcycle greats are father and son custom bike builders Arlen and Cory Ness, Motorcycle Hall of Famer Don Emde, bike clothing designer Troy Lee, GP winner Kenny Roberts, Sr and Ted Simon, the man whose best-selling book, Jupiter’s Travels, about his dual circumnavigation of the world inspired Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor to film The Long Way Round.

The project boss is Bryan H. Carroll who was responsible for films such as Public Enemies, Miami Vice and Collateral. Apart from a crew of Hollywood and American TV network specialists, the documentary

“Why We Ride is a story about the passion of motorcycle riders,” says Carroll. “From a family riding together on the sand dunes, to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons — the bond with two-wheels is the same – it brings people together in a unique and memorable way and we wanted to share that joy with an audience.”

But the real features of the film are the cinematography and stunning scenery. Filming took a year and took the crew from the deserts of California to the salt flats of Bonneville, visiting Sturgis and Daytona rallies.

The doco has a special emphasis on the increasingly popular women, youth, and family groups of the sport and recreation. Why We Ride screened in New York at the Motorcycle Film Festival 2013, where it won Best Feature Documentary.

  1. You’re not asking for any contact details. I wonder who will get those prizes… 🙂

    1. Hi,
      I’m pretty sure the address details are at the end, but I can’t check at the moment as the survey won’t let me in once you’ve done it. I’m getting my IT guy in the UK to check it out and all have an answer shortly.
      I’ve not had any other complaints, except one guy in the US who couldn’t get past Q26. However, I’ve taken his name and email and yours and all include it in our draw.
      Thanks for filling in the survey!

      1. Was completing survey when the web page failed. Now can’t go back in to finish?
        When I try to log back on or redo it tells me I already have done the survey?
        Sent email to the address supplied but haven’t heard any thing back yet to help?

        1. Hi Chris,
          I understand your frustration.
          If you want to bail out early there is an opt out and return button, but if it fails, there is no way around it as it record that you’ve done the survey.
          However, for purposes of the competition, you have been recorded and are still in the running.
          Good luck.
          If you want to add anything about your riding experiences that you feel is important, please tell me now!!!
          Cheers mate,

    2. We are asking for your email as per Q37. It is optional, so you don’t have to provide an email but if you do, you go in the draw for the prize so we can contact you.

  2. So I finished Q.26 , it said 91% done at the bottom and then hit the submit and that was it. I got a thanks for coming and no I wasn’t asked to enter my email address. Is this a hoax?
