This has its comical moments, namely John Cusack's cameo.

Roadside Prophets
RiverCave | MN | 01/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

""I saw the movie and my head was reeling with adventure....then a week afterwards on the side of a dirt road while in the country with bro-in-law.....we saw a motorcycle for sale, parked next to an RV. on a lakeshore, this guy with gray hair said he spent his summers here in northern MN.,was retired, and every spring returned and sold his bike he'd ride in Florida during the winter months, living in his RV. I knew it was a sign from God. Here was a real Roadside Prophet, just like in the movie,offering me advice and showing me how to ride it. I bought it right there on the spot. I live for my weekend roadtrips now, running into Prophet after Prophet just like David Carradine/Arlo Guthrie's/Timothy Leary's characters portrayed, off the beaten "Media Battered Path."This movie gives us meaning...it's about "Being." Just living in the moment,as we were born to. Recognizing when to "Let go, Let God" without reservations and not looking back, knowing the best is yet to come. Get the movie. Get the meaning. Spirit demands it Your destiny is at hand. (P.S. A bike with whitewall tires helps too)"
Not-quite impossible dream

""Roadside Prophets" is a small movie with a not-quite realized vision. On the negative side, the acting is occasionally awkward and the dialogue clunky, but the film is rich in literary allusions and cultural critique. On the surface, it's a typical buddy film. On the other hand, not many buddy films feature two guys on ancient motorcycles searching for Eldorado so they can spread a Fat Bob tank full of ashes as a tribute to someone who was electrocuted while playing a video game in a strip bar. The point of the movie is not to glorify the end product, but the process. That is, living life the best way you know how, with the full realization that the end product is just that -- the end. John Cusack has a memorable cameo in the film, but others -- such as David Carradine's and Timothy Leary's -- actually have substance, where Cusack's is a triumph of style. As in life, the main characters meet people who have things to say, some profound and some profoundly silly. Dismiss those roadside prophets at your peril -- those who seem the most insane may well be the wisest people you'll ever meet."
Great food for your head

"This is definately one of those kick back in your sofa, light up and flow movies. The subdued plotline is warm and insightful and the many cameos in this movie are always a surprise waiting around the next corner.If you are walking the path or surfin the wave like some of the rest of us, check this movie out."
