In this cycle of Legendary USA we talked a lot about motorcycle stunts in movies and what makes them so appealing to viewers. We also talked about an upcoming and popular bike rally in Ruidoso, NM.

  •  First, there was a montage of movies that all involved motorcycle stunts that would make even the greatest thrill-seekers turn their heads. You can watch the video here.
  • Then we discussed the motorcycle stunts from the movie The Matrix Reloaded. These scenes alone could be the reason the movie is so popular.
  • Next, we talked about the upcoming motorcycle rally in Ruidoso,NM. The rally draws huge crowds from enthusiasts across the country and this year it’s taking place from May 16-19.
  •  Angelina Jolie is a well-known actress, largely because she’s not afraid to take risks in her movie roles. She proved she can jump a bridge on a motorcycle just as well as any man.
  • Then of course, there’s the Terminator. It wouldn’t be worth watching if Arnold didn’t pull a few motorcycle stunts along the way. You can watch here.
  • Last but not least, we discussed what it takes to be a motorcycle stunt person, and how driving skills and camera angles add to the overall effect of the movie.
