Real Road Racing Motorcycle Blog by Barbiegirl Northern Ireland

At the time it might well have been a great commercial for the Honda CR250M Elsinore CM but this enduring piece of cinematography starring the anti-hero icon Steve McQueen just has to be one of the most truly awesome adverts ever for promoting the sheer joy of motorcycling - safely. Enjoy!

Steve McQueen, the King of Cool, starred in a veritable multitude of unforgettable blockbuster movies including: The Great Escape, The Magnificent Seven, The Cincinnati Kid, Nevada Smith, Bullitt, Le Mans, The Getaway, Papillon, An Enemy of the People. He also featured in 'On Any Sunday' a 1971 must see American documentary feature about motorcycle sport, directed by Bruce Brown. Nominated for an Academy Award in 1972 for Documentary Feature the movie follows the lives of motorcycle racers and racing enthusiasts. The film was also partially financially funded by Steve McQueen.
