Anyone seen this movie? I'm watching it at home (in two parts) on Netflix (old style DVD) and I find it thoroughly enjoyable. I watched it years ago before I had my Indian, and wasn't as enthralled with it as I am now. Just wondering if anyone else out there has seen it and has any input. Thanks.

You are so very correct, great movie. The movie came out I believe in 2006, it was a great interest to me as I was riding a 2000 Chief at the time. The land speed record he established back in 1967 (I think he was 68 or 69 at the time) and still stands;

Munro ratcheted the SA 1000 class record up to 184.087 mph in 1967—a record that has stood the test of time and still stands in what is now the S-AF 1000cc class. All the records were set with his hand-built 1920 Indian Scout based streamliner.

I enjoyed the movie. Apparently, my mother-in-law's father rode an Indian back in the day, and she had recommended it to me sometime after I got my bike.

I was given the DVD before I retired. It put Indian bikes on the map for me, as here in Oz they had no public profile. Then they brought out the new Scout and I was so taken with the design of the bike and my memories of the movie that I figured it might make a good retirement present for myself. I bought the Scout the day before I finished work back in 2016.

Great movie. I watched it before I got my Indian because I love watching motorcycle movies. It's time for me to watch it again.

My favorite line is in the beginning when Burt is melting down the pistons, "One part Chevy, one part Ford."

That cracked me up!

Years ago I was watching TV and the next show was the FASTEST INDIAN. I was thinking it was about some American Indian athlete. I watched and loved the show. Have seem it a couple of times since.
