Reviews:  A finer and uplifting movie I have been longing for! Sure, I’ve seen the film several times on Netflix, but now I have the documentaries and the real life of Burt Munro. 5-stars.
Mr. Munro was totally wrapped up in his motorcycle, an Indian Scout. Of course he didn’t settle for the 55 mph that it came with. He supped it up to over 200 mph, and did it using every part like a door hinge or a corkscrew, plus stopping the cycle down to the lightest possible weight. Then when he went to the Bonneville Salt Flats for the first time he was 70+ years old and several times inched ever closer to a heart attack. Still he managed to run the Indian to break records during the 7 or 9 years he ran at Booneville— I can’t remember which.

Now this is mostly true and thus the fornications and one actor played a transvestite (tho sexually Munro doesn’t have anything to do with “him,” plus I don’t think he was a Christian. However things are done by great men and women and we can learn from them.
For me the motorcycle is like the Scriptures. Munro dived into it and made it faster. We should all be that way when it comes to the Scriptures. I was a Dispensational Arminian until one year after I got married. My soul lacked food, and it wasn’t getting that at my church, even tho I sought council my my pastor. I then left my church, but stayed within the Baptistic circles I was familiar with. One day at work I received an invite to a Presbyterian church in the area. It was there I got to feed my soul, filling it up with Scripture that made sense, a Reformed view. So I converted from Arminian to Calvinistic.
Again I searched the Scriptures and found all sorts of sweet morsels that I could really sink my teeth into. Funny how the Bible is so willing to be understood as a child, but it was not baby food, but good ol’ steak!

Then I tackled on Eschatology, the doctrine of future things. My head was full of Dispensationism and it did not make any sense to me. Overtime I ended up as a Postmillennialist. Strange how I ended up where my earliest known ancestor was, Reformed and Postmil (I come from the Dutch).
Now I am part of a congregation that is Presbyterial in government, and episcopal in worship, having Communion every Sunday, like Acts 20: 7 says.

All from my reading of MY motorcycle, the Bible!
