ONE and ONLY Motorcycle DVD Thread

Okay, guys, what do you think are "must see" movies on dvd that have a substantive amount of motorcycle-theme content (movies like Easy Rider, but NOT Top Gun, Matrix Reloaded, Fast and Furious). Let's exclude all race or instructional videos.

Here are my contributions:

Easy Rider (a must see classic for any motorcyclist)

Biker Boyz

Ony Any Sunday

American Chopper (much, much, more than building choppers)

Anyone care to comment on: On Any Sunday II
Born to Ride, Electra Glide in Blue, Girl on a Motorcycle, Knightriders, Rebel Rousers, Roadside Prophets, The Lords of Flatbush, Legend of Speed, and Motorcycle Gang?

Angel Unchained/Cycle Savages (MGM Midnite Movies double feature)

I don't think Stone Cold or Cool as Ice are on DVD.
I'd probably buy Stone Cold if it were. Guilty pleasure.

Girl on a Motorcycle - Marianne Faithfull is the girl. This is great if you enjoy 60s psychedelic films. It's one of my favorites and the ending is pure camp fun.

Legend of Speed is a so-so HK film. It was entertaining and had some decent motorcycle racing action. It's kinda like Fast and Furious on bikes around the mountains in Macao.

MotorPsycho -- the Russ Meyer film about a couple of villains on motorcycles. They're riding Honda Cub 90cc bikes (that can't keep up with the camera truck) but the soundtrack is dubbed with the engine roar of big displacement bikes. Russ must have gotten the bikes for free in exchange for advertising, because there are lots and lots of loving closeups of the motorcycles.

Satan's Sadists is a another motorcycle gang movie. It's an exploitation movie that actually delivers on its bad taste promises: it really has a cop-killing, rape, murder, drug use, free love, and a motorcycle crashing.

We just watched The Great Escape. Not much motorcycle content, but Steve McQueen gets about ten minutes of really first-rate riding time.

Anyone seen Viva Knievel?

Didn't Cannon films make a bad move about paramilitary motorcyclists rescuing prisoners of war?
