"In a golden age of motorcycling, it's a shame Hollywood continues to put out so much motorcycle garbage (Torque, Biker Boyz, etc) when the life of Joey Dunlop would make such a great movie, appealing to those who aren't motorcyclists or racing fans (Kudos to Ulster TV for producing this great documentary).
There is so much to enjoy on this DVD: the slow-motion ballet of a great road racer, beautiful scenery, soul-stirring music, the "scary fast" sound and speed of big bore sport bikes (and the smaller 2-strokes) on bumpy, twisty, hilly public roads that have been given over so that true roadracers can ply their craft. Don't be surprised if you find yourself cheering Joey on when the odds seem against him!
A truly reverent look at the life and accomplishments of an eminently likeable individual with a never say die attitude, who continued to confound opponents with his ability to win a young man's game at his age!"
Please you must watch this 10 stars

"Joey may not be the greatest motorcycle racer ever, but hes the greatest man to ever race a bike!!!!!
In America, road racing means racing around short circuits, but in Ireland and the isle of man, road racing means racing on roads at easily over 200mph and 1 lap is 37 miles long, need i go on!!!! great onboard lap with joey, some great footage from the early days, and also a very touching funeral!!!!!
