Custom motorbikes are usually seen as show ponies, plonked in a garage ready for a polish. WIDE OF THE MARK- A motorcycle adventure film follows six riders with a hunger for a motorcycle adventure, hand-building their road bikes to tackle Tasmania’s rugged off-road terrain.
Join us on Friday 30 April for a special event Q&A Screening with cast member JUSTIN HOLMES, owner of Popbang Classics, a workshop specialising in Classic, Custom and Vintage Motorcycles, with Ben from local Perth motorcycle store Rogue Motorcycles, introducing and hosting the Q&A screening following the 7.00 pm session @ Luna Leederville.
"It's like the LONG WAY ROUND, but the riders are better looking and ride a lot faster" - Pipeburn Magazine
Usually, a motorcycle adventure starts on the ride, but for these 6 Aussie riders it started in the garage. Can you build the ultimate adventure machine in your garage? Follow 6 riders as they build their own bikes and find out, putting them to the test on a 2-week off-road expedition through the heart of Tasmania. Breathtaking landscapes, and some of the world’s most renowned trails punctuated by break down’s, crashes and roadside repairs.
“This film is so much more than just six friends riding motorcycles around some of the most epic scenery in the world. It’s about conquering your fears when times get tough. It’s about helping your mates in times of need. And it’s about getting outside your comfort zone and grabbing life by the horns. By the end of the film, you will be itching to hit the road on an adventure”. – Scott Hopkin, Pipeburn Magazine
“Wide of the Mark is a stunning and intimate glimpse into a dream trip for six friends and their inappropriate motorbikes. The film pulled me in with its beautiful cinematography and it kept me hooked as I got to know the wild characters and followed along on their misadventures. From the process of building the one-of-a-kind machines to the breathtaking and remote destinations, they ride them to, Wide of the Mark embodies freedom in its purest form. The film left me feeling inspired with a sense of wanderlust, and a reminder to stay present in the moment and enjoy all the ups and downs of the adventure because, in the end, the journey is all that matters.” – Ben Geise, META Magazine
