Only if you were there, can you "re"visit

"Henderson in Nevada, you missed the point. "RE" is the key word here. What I hoped and expected; the young crazy kids, grown up and now grandfathers as they hash over old times. They're in their 50's and 60's even. They all looked terrific; still good pals, which just goes to prove the sport is for real. Malcom Smith and Jim Rice weren't featured and I was looking forward to seeing them. If you weren't around back in '71 to appreciate the original release, or you didn't ride; you probably won't appreciate this. WE were involved and my husband died since then; so it was like going home. Odom, Bugsy, Dave Aldana, Kenny Roberts, Mert Lawwill, Palmgren, Nixon, Gene Romero; if these names don't sound familiar, don't bother. It's exactly what the title says; "REVISITED"; IF YOU WEREN'T THERE THE FIRST TIME, YOU CAN'T "RE" VISIT anyplace. I did hope to see some Widow Maker in Utah, how many people have made the top since. Teeth clenching "endo's" that would kill most. I'm happy with it; just too short. Death of one rider; sad, but can we say "UNEXPECTED?" I think not, since when you see some of the accidents left out of the original; you should know why."
Beat It !

"This horse cannot be beaten to death !Although not as good as the original, (how could it be ?!), it is a worthy tribute to the riders and stars of On Any Sunday.Meeting them again after 30 years and seeing how this revolutionary movie of it's time affected their lives is what I wanted to see. (You can see Malcolm Smith in OAS.3).History in the making before your very own eyes - How can you beat it !"

"If you loved motorcycles in the 50's & 60's, you will enjoy this film. It contains footage not used in On Any Sunday, with interviews with some of the riders featured in On Any Sunday.Watch the old bikes ride again!"
