COMMENT:

This film is based on a true story, sort of......   Burt Munro is from New Zealand.   He took his 1920 Indian to Bonneville and set a worlds speed record.   Burt's real story is more interesting that the made up one for this film.   I never have been able to figure out why they buy a story and then make up another one?   Anyway, this is a great film and if you are into motorcycles, you should see this film.......
