You're never too old for the ride of your life..
Inspiring.
But, chronologically wrong. Burty took his ride in '67, not 1962. He couldn't have picked up a GI bound for Vietnam until 1964.

The best auto,mechanical movie ever made in my book. Great true story, well scripted, well acted and well shot. You can tell that Anthony wore this character to its full potential. This is another film that I have to watch every year before I go to the salt flats.

A sweet-natured little film that is greater than the sum of its parts. Anthony Hopkins gives a fine performance in the lead, and the director's lifelong passion for telling this story shines through in every frame.

Truly heart-warming. A term too easily used to describe trite hollywood garbage but this movie is really good. Gearheads can be the best people.

Based on the true story, and a 1967 world record that has not been broken to this day, Anthony Hopkins plays Burt Monro the kiwi who never let his dreams die and races his patchwork classic indian motorcycle (1920 indian scout) at the utah saltflats -- the film shows the record made was 201.5 MPH but the actual record was 205.67 MPH(unofficial becaue it was not completed, he crashed), the official record is 201.0. and i my opinion that is way faster than i would like to ride a new motorcycle never mind the frightening piece of equipment shown in the film

great family movie about keeping dreams alive, but also about kindness and treating everyone fairly and with respect.
