The best motorcycle films

Motorcycles have always been the ultimate movie props. Here are our favorite short films about those who build them, and those who ride them.

Love this teaser for an upcoming documentary on the cafe racer lifestyle, "Today Is A Good Day". There are some big names involved too, like custom motorcycle builders Roland Sands and Shinya Kimura, plus BMW design chief Ola Stenegard.

Now this is a man qualified to build a motorcycle. Take a look into the world of Kenny Cummings of NYC Norton.

After weeks of wrenching and filming, our Honda CB550F is ready to hit the street! Enjoy the final episode of the Bike EXIF Saturday Sessions as we go for a blast around NYC.

There's something fascinating about seeing a motorcycle being reassembled. So we sneaked into the Brooklyn workshop of E3 Motorcycles to watch them putting a beautiful Honda CB back together. Enjoy.

Here's the first visual appetizer from this year’s Wheels & Waves festival. We just experienced an exclusive weekend full of speed, adrenaline, style, and freedom at the racetracks and amid the roaring waves. As a feast for your eyes, we are gearing up to present an extensive video on the customized machines and classic choppers showcased there. The video will also include some exhilarating rides and interviews with bikers and surfers who are featured in the books “The Ride” and “The Outsiders.”
