From the Hollywood Reporter:
"Covering a wide range of motorcycling styles while reaching out to multiple communities of riders, Bryan H. Carroll’s doc has the potential to capture the attention of legions of enthusiasts worldwide.

"Kickstarting things off with a succinct and highly entertaining capsule history of motorcycling in the US, the film pays tribute to some of the early heroes of the sport, whose bareheaded exploits in death-defying races became the stuff of legend among enthusiastic fans."
