A documentary following the lives of motorcycle racers and racing enthusiasts, including actor Steve McQueen. First asking the question "Why do they do it?" this film looks at the people who devote (and sometimes risk) their lives to racing on tracks and off-road courses around the world. Written by

Access to the beach for the final scenes in the film (shot at Camp Pendleton, a marine base in California), was originally denied to Bruce Brown, but Steve McQueen intervened and the Pendleton officials then gave permission. See more »

I have only seen one Bruce Brown film titled "On Any Sunday".
I was turned onto the title 2 years ago (2004) by some friends I ride motorcycles with but, since the first viewing, I have probably watched the film 20 times and look forward to 20 more.
It seems that all of the people I know who have seen it... feel the same.
YES, we are all bike enthusiasts but, it's just a wonderful, informative and now historical doc of motorcycling activities in the early 70's with great period music and superb narration.
It's my opinion that "On Any Sunday" is the best motorcycle movie ever made.
If you ride motorcycles, think about getting a video projector and inviting your riding buddies over and showing the movie on your garage door or side of your house after dark. Call it "(instert your name)'s Motorcycle Ride In Theater".
Get some beer or tea or whatever, it's a good time! Three thumbs up!
