Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

"If you don't go when you want to go, when you do go, you'll find you've gone."

Though I had already watched this in 2006 with flatmate Dave, this afternoon I sat down with my mum to re-enjoy kiwi Burt Munro's road-journey from New Zealand to Utah, which is a real lesson in the power of just saying "yes".

Burt's dream is impossible – to go race on his souped-up motorbike, despite his age, health and lack of having actually entered the contest.

Along the way he meets a colourful assortment of characters, nearly all of whom find it in their hearts to give him a little push. By the end of his story, it's really become a team-effort, but who would want to take away any of this charming old man's hard-earned glory?

A great lesson in the value of trying to find a way to help others in need, but he really should have been played by a Kiwi.
