Cool Biker movies

Anyone recommend any biker movies? I just recently watched On Any Sunday and On Any Sunday Revisited. I know Easy Rider is a classic as well. I was wondering if Hollywood will put out anymore real biker movies? I saw the "Long Way Round" but didn't really like it...although I like the idea. The two guys in it seemed kind of dum. IMHO.

Hell Ride, Hells Angels on Wheels, The wild one, and just for fun Wild Hogs. I know I have seen others but that is all that comes to mind right now.

I found a movie called "Cycles South" on my local Comcast on-demand last month. It was not unlike a Warren Miller ski movie about three friends that set off from Colorado on, get this British Thumpers in the very early 70's. They end up riding to Panama and there were parts I watched in awe as they went off road for much of the trip, including riding down the middle of some railroad tracks...........Good little movie that includued a couple of may favorite things, motorcycling and nudity.........

Sons of Anarchy. Not a movie, but a series. I don't have cable, but I had heard of this one, saw several pictures from it, and had my brother in law somehow (I don't ask questions) copy every single episode and put them on DVD for me. Not for everyone, but not bad, IMO. It has Ron Perlman and Katey Sagal (who used to play Peg Bundy on MWC) Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

Electra Glide in Blue

Not strictly a biker movie but a good film none the less.

"Masters of Menace" best biker movie ever! little hard to find, cant seem to rent it anywhere. Has cameo's from John Candy, Dan Akyroyd, Goerge Wendt, and the best one Smokey the Bear (best part of movie IMHO). its sorta Animal House on motorcycles. ALot of no name actors (dasiy duke (Catherine Bach) is one of the two "names" that star in it) but all do a good enough job.
