Why We Ride is a story about who we are. Individuals with a desire to dream, discover and explore. From a kid’s dream come true, to a retiree’s return to freedom. From a family riding together on the sand dunes, to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons – the bond is the same. It’s about the passion of the riders and the soul of their machines.

An inspiring celebration of the motorcycling community, this documentary film shares the passion of motorcycle riding and shows the camaraderie of the friends and families who ride together. As told by the many racers, riders, pioneers, and parents in the sport, the story weaves its way through generations of motorcyclists who live each day to the fullest on their two-wheeled machines. The refreshing message about the joys of motorcycling, coupled with state of the art photography, capture the imagination and set the soul in motion.


Why We Ride will surely warm the souls of bike enthusiasts while prompting
many nonriders to join the fold.” –
Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

“It’s an 89-minute love song to the sport of motorcycling in all its forms.
Go see this movie with a crowd – with our community of motorcyclists.
Oh, and take a non-riding friend or two.” -
Evans Brasfield,

“A symphony of images making watching this documentary like riding a
magnificent mile.” -

“When you talk about stellar motorcycle movies…Why We Ride may be added
to that A-List.” -

Why We Ride is an interesting look at the way motorcycles have become
not only a form of transportation…,but also a form of recreation, sports, and
a way to bond with others, including your own family.” -

“Substantial appeal and abundant style.” - Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter
