Peter Starr, AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer, changed the world of motorcycle racing with the first ever camera-bike. A rider, camera operator, and boom operator were able to cruise down the track with ease. It captured the speed and sensation of motorcycle racing for the viewer. Starr’s Take It to the Limit film shows the intricacies of the rig and plenty of amazing footage to show just what it was capable of. Filming roaring bikes at top speed would never be the same, thanks to him.
