Absolutely delicious. A brilliant clip that paraphrases a lot about why we ride. I'm showing this to my father who at age 65 I taught him to ride a motorbike. I'm visiting him in the states now as he has had his third heart attack. This clip will fire him right up. Thanks for posting.
Thanks! This clip brought tears to my eyes.
Amazing. Brilliant. Essential.
Even though we may get old and physically fragile, depressed over the loss of a wife or good friend - as long as we don't lose our spirit, our will to live, we can break out and do the almost impossible!
A deep message, asking questions, giving answers, going straight to the facts of life. I've watched tons of 100-minute-movies where famous actors and directors were trying to achieve that; this korean TV commercial did a better job in 3:11 minutes.
I had a few things planned for today but I'll get on my bike and ride instead!
Worth noting that this film, produced for TC Bank Taiwan, was shot by a Thai production house, Phenomena, and the post production was also done by a Thai company, Oriental Post. The Thais really have a way of pulling this sort of script off to tug the heart strings. As a consequence many international awards are won by Thai Ad agencies, production houses and directors, in fact more than any other Asian countries. Amazing Thailand.
I have reposted it on my Facebook ... big success with friends, even not bikers. Driving a bike, just an example, in fact an attitude toward life. Thank you again for finding and sharing it. It's such a nice postcard to send to relations wondering what we are doing in Thailand
Even though I only own a 125 Wave at the moment I felt like riding after watching the video. Had to get off the island of Phuket, went direction Pha Nga. The weather was great and the scenery nice, so I kept going until I reached Ao Nang, close to Krabi. Had lunch close to the beach, checked out some other smaller beaches, took some photos and went back. Felt great to be on the road, haven't done that in a while. Since I sold my VTR ten months ago, to be exact.
Keeping the needle close to 80 most of the time I rode a total of 390 km; started at 11AM and returned at 7PM. It was a good day!
