World's Fastest Indian

by Stefan

Watch the movie "The Words Fastest Indian". It's a fantastic movie about travel
on a shoe-string budget, and motorcycles. It's based on the true story of a man
from New Zealand who travels half-way around the world to race his home-made
bike on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

At some point in the movie, an old Indian asks our hero:

"What you wanna ride that contraption for?"

He answers, "I suppose the reward is in the act of doing it itself."

Later he drops one of the best quotes in the movie:

"You live more in five minutes on a bike like this than most people
live in a lifetime."
