The good folks at ChopperTown have gotten a new motorcycle documentary out. Called "Free to Wander", the DVD follows a group of bikers on their choppers.
Remember those kids that played with their skateboards in the parking lots? Well, this is them, but grown up. Skateboards have been traded in for motorcycles that have been transformed into choppers. Some of them are real works of art, while some are held together with Duct tape and pieces of string. But it doesn't matter, as long as they ride.
And ride they do. These lads have no problem doing hundreds of miles on their motorcycles. The destination is not important, the ride is. The one hour long DVD follows them, and in between there are several interviews and some scenes where you see how they've transformed with loving care their choppers.
The bikers are from all walks of life; artists, lawyers, criminals, it doesn't really matter what they do for a living. Once you get on your bike, you're a biker.
Some of the riding sequences are a bit long in the tooth, i.e., they stay focussed on a specific bike for a bit too long, but it doesn't detract from the good photography. The sound tracks are awesome.
There are even some funny sequences in the DVD; one when they try to race their choppers in deep beach sand, the other when some of them ride in their underpants.
These choppers are not OCC built; they are real choppers meant to be taken everywhere, not for show purposes..
It's a nice DVD to be watched when you can't ride, like on a rainy Sunday afternoon. It's a DVD for chopper lovers. The movie was directed by first-timer Rich Grabbe Here's the trailer:
