How about a movie about MotoGP, Superbike, Supersport

Wondering if the powers that be will ever make a decent and accurate movie about motorcycle road racing? Movie makers have done a number of car (cage) racing flicks, why not motorcycles? I was thinking that a well made, accurate movie would generate interest in and even respect for the professionalism of motorcycle road racing among the general public.

There is a movie coming out this month sometime, called The Faster Movie, it's based on racing in the MotoGP class, if your a roadrace fan, I'm told by those that have seen a sneak preview that this movie is a Must see...I've seen the trailer, and it looks to be a very good movie...it will also be available on DVD.

Torque? That movie looks about as lame as Too Fast, Bi-Curious. I swear in the trailer when the Aprilia wheelies between the two cars, and pretty much any time after that, it makes an inline 4 sound, either that or my comp was seriously lagging when I watched it.

I`ve always wanted to see that, and almost rented it a couple times... Its on TNT right now... I`m glad I never rented it. I guess its just like F&F, just take it for what it is (ENTERTAINMENT) and don`t look too into it, and it`ll be good... although thats easier said that done, especially when they yank the steering wheel to the left/right and they`re supposed to be doing almost 200mph

Hollywood...

yeah holywood throws alot of stupid shit into movies like that....i think it might be hard to find crazy enough stuntmen to do the wrecks in a bike movie....if they would make a cool bike movie it should be about a young racer making his way to the top it could be like a TOP GUN but with bike and no military involvment...and the title would be "Low Side" or "High Side" or maybe
"Up on One" or "Two" possible names....my 2 cents, lol
