User Reviews

The pilot for the TV series..

This is the introduction to the character of Jim Bronson, the soft spoken motorcyclist that went on the road looking for some insight into his life after the suicide of a friend. (Zen and the art of motorcycling??) It was later made into a TV series.

Bronson in his trademark knit watchcap aboard his red Sportster with bedroll attached, is still an icon for the free-spirited motorcycle lifestyle. It has been many years (at least 20) since I have seen this movie, but I can remember faithfully watching anytime it was played. In the TV series Parks often performed music that would be used to accompany the storyline, but I don't recall if he performed any songs in the movie.
