The World's Fastest Indian

Borrowed this movie from my is a real good one.

The World's Fastest Indian (2005), is a film based on the legendary motor bike racer from New Zealand named Burt Munro. Munro set numerous land speed records for motorcycles with engines less than 1000cc at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah in the late 1950s and into the 1960s. Many of his records still stand to this day. The film stars Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins and was written and directed by Roger Donaldson. The film opened in December of 2005 to positive reviews.

It helps to pass the time on the trainer. Not so good for super hard efforts (except for the 150 mph scenes at Bonneville) but is good for Zone 2 and Tempo riding.
