A Story Worth Living

Last year, we were asked by the folks at And Sons Magazine if we’d help outfit six BMW F800GS motorcycles for a feature-length film. Each year Twisted Throttle sponsors many projects and events to sponsor, and because outfitting bikes for adventure riding is essentially what we do best, we were immediately interested. We flew out and got down to business outfitting the bikes with the ADV gear they would need to navigate the unforgiving Colorado terrain. Get a closer look at how we were able to outfit these bikes in this video, and see the full parts list here.  A Story Worth Living has gotten some great reviews and endorsements, including one from Long Way Round/Down star and ADV enthusiast Charley Boorman.

Would love to see this movie and bring a group of folks along who are also motorcycle riding enthusiasts. As soon as tUmea are posted, I’m sure I’ll get a good response of attendees.

Why only showing on one night? I’m bummed because I’ll be out of town that day!!!

They are only showing one night because no one will return once the word gets out. This is NOT a motorcycle movie, it is an evangelical film that will sorely disappoint you if you are going to watch a motorcycle movie. I saw it in OC CA and more than a few people walked out. At one point someone stood up and yelled “Just Ride!” as the characters went on and on about their life experiences. Some great photography but this one missed the mark by a mile. The sponsors and the public got duped on this one.

Well Shoot, the 7:30pm is sold out in my city and I don’t want to be out after the 10:10pm showing is over. Sad it’s one night only. I hope it comes out for sale down the road.

I have posted this on the riding club site that I am a part of, the problem is that it will only be showing at select theaters in the U.S. There is interest in seeing this but is there some way to get a hold of someone to get this movie brought up to Canada?

Will it come to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada?

You should seriously rethink your decision to put your name as a sponsor on this film, it was nothing like the trailer portrayed it to be and the only reason it was done as a 1 time showing is because it would have been a total flop after the first group of people left the theater. this film was horrible and I only wish I had left with a refund.

I wrote a much longer review, but the gist of it is… I wanted to like it. I wanted it to be good. I like those companies sponsoring these sorts of projects. But this was barely ready for Youtube, let alone a theatre release.

This is probably the worst motorcycle adventure movie that i have ever seen. About half way through the film most of the motorcyclists had walked out. It is more like ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ than an adventure film. It is contrived from beginning to end and the group discussion after the show was the worst. It was a phony from the beginning to the end. One guy crashes and supposedly breaks 3 ribs and punctures his lung and get backs on his bike and finished his “epic ‘journey. Pure Bullshit!!! After 8 days on this great adventure, they are… Read more »

Saw it last night. Really a big dissapointment. Not much motorcycling in it at all. Definitely beautiful scenery shots, but overall NOT a motorcylcing movie as the trailer clips indicate. I thought it was a very contrived ploy about these 6 peoples self perspective with a whole lot of born again church inuendos.
From a motorcycling perspective… a big waste of money. Many people walked out early. No lies

WHAT EVER YOU DO…DO WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS MOVIE. It is absolutely horrible…and I do mean horrible. Worst movie I have ever seen. If you can’t take my word for it….research other websites posting reviews. True dual-sport enthusiast are saying over and over again how awful and deceptive the trailer clip is. I was duped and pissed off after watching this.

Really enjoyed this movie and hope it will eventually come out on DVD, including the extras they will start streaming online starting next week.

Sooo did anyone at Twisted Throttle watch the movie? I did as did many others that were duped into watching a movie almost void of adventure riding…. Please take some time to review the thoughts of the adv community on just about any forum and perhaps let us know if TT was complicit with the deceit. I love TT and value you as as resource, and this post was one of the reasons I went to see the movie. After seeing it, I am left wondering if it was also your intent to mislead us? I doubt it, but hell,… Read more »
