Trivia:
The stunt double for Little Fauss in the closing road racing scenes were performed by Scottish born road racing champion Davey Scott. Much of the footage was captured during an actual national race.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When they are broken down and they are chatting at the back of the pickup, they are shown in profile with Halsey in the background. Past Halsey, deeper in the background, there is a constant stream of vehicles on what is obviously a major thoroughfare. Then the camera pans to a long shot showing them sitting in the rain. This long show also shows the surrounding countryside and they are on an isolated dirt road with no major thoroughfare around.See more »

Old School Motorcycle Racing Classic, 10 February 2006
Author: tox_medic from United States

As a 17 year old Arizona motorcycle racer, I had the privilege of working as an extra/ stuntman on the racing scenes in this movie, so I'm somewhat biased about the quality of this feature. It IS schmaltzy and VERY early 70s in its content and cinematography, but it paints a GREAT picture of what it was like to race motorcycles in the early days of American motor sports (back when no one but the Europeans EVER won anything!). Before Supercross, before motor sport superheroes when us folks that rode motorcycles were known as LESS than desirable, and no one ever called us athletes.

So, from a historical perspective, or just to see ME as a 17 year old tearing around a couple dirt tracks and out on a desert run aboard a hot Yamaha, I feel this movie can't be beat. It'll never take the place of such greats as On Any Sunday or On Any Sunday 2, but it's still a worthwhile 99 minutes of lighthearted flashbacks for anyone that lived through those times, or those that wish they had.

Oh, and Robert Redford wasn't too bad either...
