Bugs And Motorcycles

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2020 by getbent57

If you ride a motorcycle you will get hit will all kinds of stuff, mostly bugs.  Think I have been hit with them all now after today.  Riding home I get hit right in the throat with this big black bug.  Didn’t know was it was.  Until I got home and looked in a bike mirror to see it was still stuck to me and some what alive.  That did freak me out a little.  But whatever I now have a story to tell with some pictures.  Which you can see below.

 

 

On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2015 by getbent57

OnAnySundayTheNextChapter.jpgHave been waiting a very long time to watch On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.  First was going to buy in off of Amazon.ca.  That had a listing it would be out February 10, 2015.  Went to order it on the tenth but the site said, “it would ship within 2 to 5 weeks”.   Later found a different listing saying it would be out March 3, 2015.  So on the third tried to order it and the same thing was there.  This pissed me off.  Ended up renting it off of the Google Play Store.’

Am glad I only rented this because it was a big let down.  It wasn’t very entertaining or interesting.  There is some good bits in there but that’s it.  They do some nods to the first documentary.  How ever they felt out of place.  Think the problem with this documentary is they tried to cram to much in and not letting some of the segments to be flushed out.  If you like motorcycles it worth checking out but not to own.  There is a much better documentary that is newish called Why We Ride.  Which is so much better.

OnAnySundayTheNextChapter.jpgWas planning on order myself a copy of On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.  It was set to be out on Blu-ray February 10, 2015.  How ever when I went on to Amazon.ca on the tenth to order it wasn’t available.  Saying it would ship within 2 to 5 weeks.  Which kind of pissed me of.  Have been looking forward to seeing this motorcycle documentary ever since I first read about in back in October.  If you never heard of it.  It is a sequel to the very famous 1971 documentary On Any Sunday.  Which is pretty good.  Well worth checking out.  You can find on YouTube.  You can check out the trailer > here or below.

[Update] Found another listing on Amazon.  Saying it will be out on March 3, 2015.  Will check back to see if its true.

OnAnySundayTheNextChapter.jpgBack in January of 2011 while watching the documentary channel.  Seen the 1971 motorcycle documentary On Any Sunday.  Which was really good even todays standards.  Then in November 2014 there was a sequel out called On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.   The people at Red Bull Media House had a hand making this so know it will look really good.   Have been looking forward to one day to watching this.  Just found out it will be out on Blu-ray on February 10, 2015.  Will be ordering myself a copy.  If this is the first time hearing about this check out the trailer > here or below.

On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2014 by getbent57

OnAnySundayTheNextChapterA few years back got to see the 1971 motorcycle documentary On Any Sunday.  While it was old and date it was still very good and entertaining.  There is a sequel coming out on November 7, 2014.  It is called On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.  It is was made by the same family that made the first and along with Red Bull Media House.  The people at Red Bull are great at making spots videos so this documentary will look awesome.  Am sure it wouldn’t be long before it will be on VOD and on Blu-ray.  When it does plan on getting myself a copy.  You can check out the trailer > here or below.

American Beta

AmericanBeta Going though some bad motorcycle withdrawal.  Hoping to find out more details tomorrow (July 11, 2012) how much it will cost and long it will take to fix.  Back on track.  Was reading about the motorcycle company American Beta.  They have been making trails bike for years have have gotten in to making enduro and dual purposes motorcycles.  I am sure they are available in Canada some were.  Did a quick search and only found in BC but they don’t have any dual purpose ones.  There RS dual purpose bikes do look pretty sweet.

On Any Sunday

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 19, 2011 by getbent57

OnAnySunday Flipping though the TV channels yesterday.  Got to the documentary one.  Looked at the info, read the word motorcycle so I clicked it. It was called On Any Sunday.  Missed the first of it.  After a few minutes I was thinking this has to be super old just by the look of the film and the bikes.   I was right it was made back in 1971.  That being said it is still an interesting watch.  What is great is it talks about more than one type of motorcycle racing.  Also show more than one brand of bike.  Another selling point Steve McQueen is featured as well.  Get to see him in some races.

Didn’t get to see the whole thing.  Did a search and thanks to an YouTube (ElSnorro1) user you can check it out.  It broken up into nine parts.  Plan to watch the whole thing now.  Posting the first part below.  My guess you will be able to watch the by fallowing the links at the end of each part.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
