On Any Sunday will be celebrating it’s 40th anniversary on the 28th of July this year, it’s an amazing tribute that even all these years later it’s still the quintessential motorcycling film. The 1971 documentary even features the late, great Steve McQueen, making it automatically cooler than anything south of the arctic circle.
The film is a cult classic for two-wheeled pilots everywhere and if you haven’t seen it you owe it to yourself to watch it, hell even if you have seen it you’re probably not averse to seeing it again. And again. If you have a couple of hours free this Sunday evening, go pick up some microwave popcorn and grab it from iTunes here.
“I think Bruce Brown’s motorcycle film “On Any Sunday” is the best thing that has ever happened to motorcycling. The audience is taken on a visual ride in what I believe is finally the definitive film on motorcycling. To me it is an unforgettable film, and I was very happy to be a part of it in some small way.” – Steve McQueen

Segueing into the grueling excitement of a muddy and murderous motocross race, we then move on to the tortuous mayhem of the Mexican 1000 off-track trial race down the Baja Peninsula. An exhilarating experience that puts you in the drivers seat.
