THE MOVIE WAS AMAZING CANT WAIT TO SEE IT AGAIN!!!!
Bring it to Pittsburgh. A lot of orange riders in Western PA.
Hanover trail riders will be there!!
I have always loved dirt bikes and desert racing, hoping to see this movie somewhere here on Long Island !! Thank you Mr. Penton for all that you do !!
I rode a 125 Penton in Enduros and Hare Scrambles all through the sixties, and a 175 KTM through the first half of
the 70’s. Absolutely loved them. Competed in all District 37 events in CA including the Barstow to Vegas, the Parker
Run, and the Greenhorn. They were great bikes.
I rode DKW 125cc with the Sachs engine…Rode district 37 desert,Barstow to Vegas also. Always loved the Penton motorcycles, they were and still are great bikes! Thanks Mr. Penton for your insight and dedication to a legend of a motorcycle!
I would love to see this film as I remember the bike’s very well but I had the British equivalent a Rickman Zundapp 125 but always wanted the green tank Penton
It’s a fantastic film. I bought my 76 Honda CR125 Elsinore from Penton Honda right here in Amherst, and I still own it today. I consider myself very lucky to call John Penton my friend. He stops by sometimes to talk.
I saw the movie last night. It was great to see the theater sold out with so many former and current riders. The film brought back a lot of memories of seeing the Penton’s riding again. More importantly, it gave a perspective on John that really showed the man behind the Machine. It’s a “can’t miss” movie for any rider.
Wow!!! I hope I get to see this flim;looks awesome.I admire MR,Penton and all he did for motorcycling. Also. I would like to know when it is available for dvd thx.
I also forgot to mention that I met one of the Penton sons back in 1973 during the Florida winter mx series.Me and my friend Gray Pearson was racing on Saturday;i think we where like 14 yrs old.The pros on sunday. Friday afternoon that huge penton van rolled into the pits,and me and my friend gary ran over to check it out.We where invited in to see the outfit and we where both stoked!!! Thx to which ever penton it was;i have always remembered that you took time to talk to us .It was the year that a tornado touched down on the other side of Orlando, but the kept going-lots of rain.Thanks again.
Hope to see the movie soon. Had many enduro’s with the Penton family in New England and Canada (corduroy 2day) . I have owned 125cc 6day, 100cc Birkshire, 400cc White tank, plus many others. Alway’s had a great time riding in the woods . Jonn Penton will always be one amazing man, and so will his son’s. Thank’s for the bikes, products of the HIGH POINT line. I now ride a 1968 BMW R60 US . Thanks John
I can remember when My dad went with the Penton team to Europe in 1972 to watch the 6 days trials and brought home a 175 Jackpiner. Later when I became a pro motocross rider Penton Central ask if I would like to ride the first penton 400 for the central region. It was white all over there was only 4 of them in the US two on the East coast, one on the west coast, and one in central US. They asked a friend Steve Stackable if he want to ride it but he said no. My dad still talks about John and the Penton team. I meet the team when they came to Ft. Hood Texas for one of the qualifiers.
