    World's Fastest Indian

    I just watched that movie for the second time--- Burt Munroe from NZ still holds the speed record for motorcycles under 1000 cc----
    Anthony Hopkins did a great job---

    It was on one of the HD Movie channels and I almost passed it up because of the tittle. Then I read the story line and decided to have a look--- was well worth the time!

    Try and get the collectors edition, and look at the doco on Burt...before you see the movie.

    What I watched came on one of the movie channels and I recorded it on my DVR---- I'll bet there's a web site about Burt---

    Will do; I think it's worth buying this one, sight unseen... seems a worthy addition to my library, etc!

    It's just been shown on UK TV; well worth watching!

    Not just for the story, but all those 50s & 60s cars.

    ...yeah, I know, I stand accused of thread archaeology!

    Whilst, for those who haven't read the book, I can thoroughly recommend it - as our Geordie friends would say 'A right riveting read.' The things that Bert Munro achieved, with what would be considered the most basic of tools, are quite incredible.
