Let's Riiide Open link in a new window is a motorcycle documentary that should be sponsored, and distributed, by the California Tourist Board. Let's Riiide shows you what it's like to ride a motorcycle in California, particularly Southern California (SoCal).

It's well put together, good camera work, and the documentary is interspersed with interviews. The producers not only show the wide array of places to ride in SoCal, but also tell you where to rent a motorcycle, eat a meal with other bikers, race your bike, etc.

For people who live in California, this DVD will remind you why you have that motorcycle in the garage. But if you live outside California, or worse, if you live aboard, WATCH OUT when watching this DVD!!! You better make sure you have money in the bank, since you'll be on the next airplane over.....to ride in California. The documentary has humor in it. It's done in a very relaxed way, following the 2 narrators on their bikes. They talk about the history of places, talk to the owners, and in general, goof around in a fun way.

Some of the stores & restaurants shown in the DVD are: Rock Store. Neptune's, Rock Inn, Hell's Kitchen, Gorda, Curtis Winery, Coldspring Tavern, Bartles Harley, Del Amo, South Bay Triumph Bronson Caves, and many, many more.

The sites/places visited are: Los Angeles, the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), Mullholland Drive, Vasquez Park, Cambria, Hearst Castle, Julia Pfeiffer Burns Park, Monterey, Big Basin Redwood Forest, Boulder Creek, San Francisco, Treasure Island, Buttonwillow race track, Santa Barbara, Motorcycle Museum Solvang, Willow Springs, plus many more.

The 3 hours 30 minutes lasting DVD is divided into 9 different parts: 1. LA, 2. PCH, 3. Track day, 4. Weekend Getaway, 5. Who Are they, 6. Retro is right, 7. Practice Makes Perfect, 8. Where the pavement ends, and 9. The Future is electric.

It's not just tourist info, but full of interviews, old bikes, the different riding styles, off road riding & adventures, lessons, electric bikes and really anything related to riding a motorcycle in California (or elsewhere).

Verdict
: An excellent documentary meant for anyone who rides, or wants to ride, a motorcycle, not only Californians. If you're planning to go to California to ride a motorcycle, this DVD is definitely for you. Even if you don't plan to ride there, it's very interesting to see how others live and ride their bikes.

Cost: US$ 19.95 (that's 3 1/2 hours of entertainment).
