    Someone just posted an image from Tarantino’s biker movie Hell Ride. OK, they’re all pretty cheesy but we’ve all seen them! I’ve always liked the bike Jack Nicholson (poet) rode in Angels on Wheels. Anyone else got a guilty biker movie secret?

    Biker movies? You’d better like Peter Fonda, he seems to turn up in most of them! BTW, didn’t David Carradine star in a low budget flick about a guy and a boy heading to Canada on a chopper? Can’t find anything on Google, might have got the name wrong?

      Easy Rider is the obvious biker film choice, although it’s a bit ‘hippy’ for me and Fonda’s character just p*ss*s me off. Great music and bike shots though.

    There’s some good bikes in the Savage Seven. The rest of it is pretty bad though.

    The Wild One. Forget Brando’s Triumph, check out Lee Marvin’s Rat Hydra-Glide. (Some press shots show him next to a Flathead, but he rode a Hydra-Glide in the film)

    They’re just too cheesy to watch.

    Easy Rider will always be the best 60s Biker film – the rest were just milking the franchise.

    The Wild One is a real period piece. The rest are almost all unwatchable.
