World's Fastest Indian Screencaps
I captured these from my copy of 2005's The World's Fastest Indian. One of my favorite scenes is the New Zealand beach race. That blur entering the frame from the left is Burt Munro, played by Anthony Hopkins. If you're reading this blog, you already know that the film is about the life story of New Zealander Burt Munro, who spent years building a 1920 Indian motorcycle -- a bike which helped him set the land-speed world record at Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats in 1967. I know vintage motorcycle enthusiasts talk about it a lot, but I love this movie. It reminds me that it's better to be your best at one thing, than being mediocre at several.
Also... get out and ride your motorcycle.
