In the early 1900s, the idea of travelling around the world on a motorcycle was unheard of. You’d have to have a few bolts loose upstairs to even think of it. But that didn’t stop a young American, Carl Stearns Clancy, from dreaming big and embarking on the adventure of a lifetime.
Released over a decade ago, “It’s Better in the Wind” by Scott Toepfer remains as one of the finest short films on motorcycle culture. No special effects in the film. No Hollywood actors. Just a group of guys planning road trips and Scott trying to record it the best he could, becoming good friends in the process, and trying to get it out there on a positive note.
