I worked on this production
2 September 2014 | by (Beautiful Pacific Northwest) – See all my reviews

I worked on this TV movie in the Transportation Dept. Prior to filming, I rode a motorcycle daily in Los Angeles as part of my profession. Robert Mandan and Jamie Farr were required to ride a motorcycle during filming and had never ridden a Harley before. Prior to the start of filming,we went to Griffith Park in Los Angeles and I taught them both how to ride and handle a Hog.( At that time it was still named "The Eaglerock Rebels Ride Again".) This was a fun shoot and a lot was filmed along the winding roads of the Colorado river. I just wanted to comment about Patrick Swayze. He was one of the nicest and most pleasant people you would ever want to meet. He owned a beautiful root beer colored day cruiser that he had at location. Even with the hectic schedule he managed to take my wife and I out on his boat to cruise around on the lake. He as a great actor and a fine person. I will always remember him and his kindness to others. It was fun to work on with great locations and a great cast and crew.
