Poll: What's the greatest bike movie of all time?

Next week's MCN (out September 12) gives the inside story on some of the best bike-related films. But which one would you rate as the finest ever made? Here's our highly subjective Top 10 (note: we haven't counted non-bike films with famous bike scenes in, such as Mad Max or The Great Escape). If we've missed any crackers off the list,...

It's An Age Thing

I voted for "On Any Sunday" but I guess that many young people have not even heard of this influential Steve McQueen movie from 1971.


Another famous biking movie which was always showing in Douglas IOM during TT week was "No Limit" the funniest biking movie of all time starring George Formby. It should be in the poll. George Shuttleworth, a chimney sweep from Wigan dreams of winning the TT, the scene where he rides through the bar of the Ballacraine Hotel is priceless.

Great escape

The Great Escape
Starring Steve McQueen, The Great Escape features arguably one of the greatest motorcycle scenes of all time. Apart from the barbed wire jump itself McQueen performed all his own stunts, and had a lot of input into the motorcycle scenes.
In the now infamous final scene McQueen was riding a TT Special 650 Triumph which had been made-over to look like a wartime BMW. WTF
