RESPECT MY SPORT!!!!
12 February 2003 | by punkguy284See all my reviews

This movie does exactly that, shows what riders are willing to do for the sport. Today, you see travis pastrana dolls on the toy shelf at target, and kid rock with seth in his video. Why? Money. This video brings you back to the days when motocross and road bikes were dangerous, not EXTREME, riders raced for the #1 plate, not for sponsors.

If I were a faster typer, I could go on. So, on that note:

WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!
