I too saw the movie last night, pretty f/n horrible. Biker boys was bad but this was worse. My gf says, "I think Torque is better since it has a storyline." Good thing i waited until it was on cable.

Yes, both where lame.

I liked Torque over BB though. At least in Torque there was some scenery, and curves in the road. Anyone can imagine going fast in a straight line!

Its entertainmenting to watch, laugh off the stupid stuff.

Hey, I liked Torque. It was a very enjoyably stupid movie, and I fully expect it to show up on "Svengoolie" one of these nights.

whats wrong with racing on dirt roads? I always race my buddy on his dirtbike. It is a lot tougher because the rear tire tends to be slipping. Anyone can race on street.
Street=point and twist
dirt=point and have throttle control

I must disagree with most here on Biker Boyz! The final race scene was indeed unrealistic but that's the only part IMO. But I'm looking from a different perspective. I'm in a club similar to those featured, and the movie was more about the bike scene as it applies to African Americans. More of showing a different aspect of the motorcycle world unknown to many. No different than stunters, canyon carvers, or drag racers.

I totally agree with most on TORQUE! Total garbage! The only scene I liked in the movie was the three riders hitting the curves. Wish I had roads like that to ride! After that I sat there with a blank Homer Simpson look the rest of the movie.

I enjoyed the "Behind the scenes" or "making of" Biker Boyz way more than the actual movie. Seeing the interview with the real people, added an element of possible, truth to the story. Unfortunately as with Torque some of the scenes where were just to much to swallow.

If you never watched the directors part of Biker Boyz, I do suggest that, over the movie.
