The wilderness of Argentina and Peru serves as a backdrop for the conversations between these two friends. They talk about the meaning of life and what the future may bring.

We do not advocate three individuals riding on one little motorcycle for reasons of safety. However, being the undisputed king of amazing motorbike flicks, we do suggest this. If you enjoyed The Grand Budapest Hotel but felt there weren’t enough motorcycles in it, you should see this film.

5. WHY WE RIDE (2013)

It makes an effort to identify and catalog the secret element or magical component that makes us live and breathe motorcycles.The film features a who’s who of notable motorcycling figures, including Dave Ekins, the father of desert riding, and MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi. 

The A-list bill examines the history of motorcycles as well as riders’ motivations for riding.

If you love motorcycles and are a student, you should see this movie.

6. SNAKE EYES (GI JOE) (2021) 

Okay, this could be a little bit of a cheat in terms of the format. Snake Eyes is not among the best motorcycle movies. In actuality, the film is more about a plastic action figure than it is about motorcycles..

To figure out what the GI Joe motorcycle was, the internet went into a collective meltdown. And even though the filmmakers never acknowledged it, Chris Paz’s name was listed in the credits (the US Service Manager at Energica). 

Would Snake Eyes have enjoyed himself better on a Damon, though? We will let you make that choice. If you want to witness the constructed electric motorcycle that had viewers scratching their heads, I recommend seeing this movie.

7. THE WORLD’S FASTEST INDIAN (2005)

Although Herbert James “Burt” Munro’s life is the subject of this film. He is a well-known New Zealander who also appears beside his customized 1920 Indian Scout motorcycle. Why is this bike such a strong supporting cast member? The 1,000cc land speed record was set by this motorcycle in 1967, and it still stands today.

This actual account of this motorcycle legend’s life is astounding. Sir Anthony Hopkins’ outstanding acting elevates it even more. Will anyone ever beat this record? Let’s wait and see when HyperSport is available for purchase. If you are interested in Burt Monro’s life and motorcycle history, this movie is a good choice.

8. CHARGE (2011)

The second film on the list is about electric motorcycles, a topic that we at Damon are quite passionate about. The film provides an inside look into the Isle of Mann’s 2009 inaugural all-electric motorcycle Grand Prix. 

It delves into the benefits of electric motorcycles as well as the debate around the conversion. If you want to learn more about electric motorcycles and get a glimpse into the future of motorcyclists, I recommend this movie!

9. THE WILD ONE (1953)

We’re returning to The Wild One, the first motorcycle movie, to take us from the future to the past. This is regarded as one of the most iconic motorbike movies, along with Easy Rider. James Dean and a certain Mr. Elvis Presley were both influenced by Marlon Brando’s portrayal of the rebellious Johnny Strabler in his trademark black leather. 

Being a passionate motorcycle rider, Brando couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be in this movie. In the movie, he even drives his own 1950 Triumph Thunderbird 6T. If you enjoy 1950s teddy boy attire and want to see the first outlaw biker movie, you should watch this one.
