In their first appearance anywhere in media, Bryan Carroll and James Walker join us to announce their newest motorcycling film project and you can join in! Why We Ride Flims produced the critically acclaimed "Why We Ride". Now their lates project is launching and it centers around the legendary 75th Sturgis Rally!
The impetus for the new movie stems partly from this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally being the 75th Anniversary of that motorcycling institution. In recent years, the Sturgis rally has drawn half a million participants, but attendance estimates for this year's anniversary rally exceed one million riders. There may never be a better time to capture the passion, dedication and camaraderie of the motorcycling community, and there certainly is no better place than the iconic Sturgis gathering.
When making Why We Ride, Sturgis was the first filming location, and it had an immediate emotional effect on the filmmakers. "There is a spirit there that enters you and grabs your heart," says Bryan H. Carroll, producer/director. "The beauty of the Black Hills is God given. You put your hand on a boulder and you feel this energy; you can feel it in the air. It's easy to understand why American Indians hold this place sacred."
"Sturgis is not just a place--it's who we are," continues Carroll. "When you say, 'I am an American,' it's not about your address or even where you were born. It's in your DNA, your spirit. It's why people from all over the world have been coming to this country for the past 250 years. It was always in them--they just needed a place to gather and be around like-minded people. This is the same story as Sturgis. There are many of us out there who are still venturing, still seeking out that next journey."

On February 8th, 1963, under the leadership of President John F. Kennedy, the United States severed all ties with the nation of Cuba. Up until that point citizens of Cuba had access to purchasing American goods of all types, including motorcycles. After this travel ban was instituted, these citizens no longer had direct access to parts and accessories to keep these American motorcycles running. Thus began decades of shade-tree wrenching and innovation like none other. The island of Cuba was essentially stuck in time, with its citizens continuing to operate these historic vehicles for more than 50 years. With the recent talk of the United States Government moving to relieve the long-standing embargo, our special guests took the opportunity to visit the island nation and see for themselves what the motorcycle culture was like. The chance to see these antique machines in daily operation and use is for many, the chance of a lifetime. Essentially our special guests Joe Sparrow and Kevin Bean’re took a step back into time and documented the daily life for the legendary motorcyclists of Cuba.

Dating all the way back to the early days of motorcycling, enthusiasts have always been drawn to the raw energy, speed and horsepower of racing. Throughout the first couple decades of the 1900’s, motorcycle racing was held on oval plank tracks, known as board tracks. The motorcycles which ran on these tracks were the ultimate in stripped-down powerhouses, with no brakes, and only a direct drive system in place of a transmission. Races were held all over the United States to the delight of crowds everywhere. Unfortunately, the danger of these races was all too real. After multiple horrific accidents resulting in the death of riders and spectators alike, board track racing was banned in the United States. While the machines survived, the sport of board tracking was seemingly gone forever; that is, until recently, when a group of enthusiasts have banned together to reinvigorate the lost art of board track racing. Held on dirt tracks instead of lumber ovals, the machines are still flying around in a display of raw power to the delighted smiles of crowds. This week, we at Classic Chrome have the pleasure of speaking with a few of the brave individuals keeping this high-octane sport alive and well. Interviewing Matt Walksler, noted builder, restorer, and award-winning racer, and Brittney Olsen, noted restorer and the only woman successfully competing in this dangerous sport!
