I just watched this film on KQED in the SF Bay Area. Sorry, but I was disappointed on two levels. First, I thought the "Manifest Destiny" attitude of Anand speeding through roads full of unsuspecting travelers (including children) was irresponsible. (Didn't one of the other riders say as much?) Second, the film ended before the riders reached their destination. Was it a temple of sorts like Borobudur in Java? Was the reason for the journey just to say they rode the highest pass? Also, a few of other riders seemed intimidated and/or bullied by Anand's will to press on. The scenic road was breathtaking for sure, but my perception of the human agenda was disconcerting. These are my beliefs, so please don't discount how I feel with a snarky response.
