Re: Dust to Glory 2 - Reminder!

Any thoughts on film, Tourmeister, his son, myself, and my wife went in Conroe. Was totally surprised, only 10-12 or so folks there!

Re: Dust to Glory 2 - Reminder!

Only four people in theater I went to in spring.
I thought there wasn’t enough motorcycle action.

Re: Dust to Glory 2 - Reminder!

I liked it. Sure, I'm always ready for more motorcycle action, but this was about more than just the motorcycle aspect of racing. The first movie just focused on the actual Baja 1000 race. This had more about the whole season of racing, the various teams and people, and a bit more about Mexico. It has something for everyone. That is a LOT to cram into 110 minutes. I thought it had some pretty cool footage from races, onboard, helicopter, drone, etc,... Overall, I thought it did a great job of conveying the feel of the whole off road racing community, the machines, the motivations, the ups and downs of racing, the triumphs and tragedies, and more. I will definitely buy it on DVD when it comes out.

I was amazed at the poor showing of viewers though. Yes, the weather was in full on suck mode last night. Still... I just wonder how much upfront promotion it got. I was not aware of it at all until someone posted about it here just a week or so ago. But for that, I would have missed it.

It DEFINITELY made me want to go ride!!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Dust to Glory 2 - Reminder!

We had about 20 people in Dallas, "technical difficulties" meant we got started late & people were pretty disgruntled having to sit through some SEMA promo for 10 mins beforehand.

Other than that I felt it was enjoyable but as basebill said, a little too much touchy-feely family and not enough racing. The first one was better but then again, it did have an element of surprise at the amazing racing footage which by now we all expected from #2.

Last year, the year before? When we had all the cobblestone ice on the roads.... there were packed houses for the motorcycle movie we went to see.

We had about 20 BMWDFW club members at the Grapevine show last night and that made for about 30 bodies in the seats.

Agree with your review of the show. I would've like more "speed" shots, but I liked the personality profiles of this show.

I thought it was going to be a packed house and convinced my Buds that we needed to get there early if we wanted a good seat. I took some razzing when everyone had finished their popcorn before the lights even went down!

Me too, I was expecting a lot of folks. Oh well. Personally it was ok but I won't be buying it. Some good footage but overall a snooze fest for me.
