I was so going to post Pee Wee's Big Adventure but not so much because a bike was the focus but because of this scene, featuring Cassandra Peterson and the Tequila number~

  Oh yea!  I die laughing when Pee Wee rides into the billboard! Another scene that cracks me up is when Pee Wee gets the news that there isn't a basement in the Alamo......I'm laughing now.......Buddy

Hey, I've got one that hasn't been mentioned.....Then Came Bronson. That movie and it's TV series spinoff got me into bikes. Never had a Harley though. Mostly Yamahas and Kawasakis. What's that Scatter? Another pic of my basement motorcycle? OK!

1971 Yamaha 250 Enduro w/ 237 miles on it.

Good one, Buddy! Then Came Bronson - Michael Parks & this cool theme song!  Thanks for jogging my memory.  Great series!

This made me remember Pat Paulson when he did a spoof on this show.  I think it was during the Smother's Brothers second show?

My two favorites would have to be the easy ones: Easy Rider and The Wild Ones.  Love the lines "Whatcha rebelling against?"  "Whatcha got?"

Never had a street bike.  Did all my riding on dirt bikes.

Yep - that's a great website!

I have to add another flick to my list of faves - NORTHVILLE CEMETERY MASSACRE.  I had wanted to see this for a long time.  Released in '76, but I think it was filmed a couple of years earlier.  Watched the whole movie on YouTube a few days ago.  Acting, not so hot as usual, but a damn good movie with an original plot.

Perhaps not my favorite but I love "The Undertaker and His Pals" - sure it counts :p

Ha!  I forgot about The Undertaker & His Pals - they were "bikers"!

Some weird inclusions might be:

Dracula vs. Frankenstein--featuring Russ Tamblyn and biker cronies
Satan's Sadists--featuring Russ Tamblyn and biker cronies
and maybe
The Pink Angels

...and I was just looking at The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant yesterday--a rather questionable movie, I guess, but hey, it was the 70's!--and there is a monster attack sequence with three bikers, featuring a little chain-swinging action.
Beautiful moving, shifting colors!

Good picks, neonnoodle - I actually saw "The Pink Angels" as the 5th movie in a Dusk-to-Dawn Bikerthon at the Drive-In during the 70's!  Needless to say, it was quite "different" than most biker flicks!
