Janet Biggs

This video takes its title from Richard Sarafian's 1971 road movie. Biggs combines images of motorcycle speed record holder Leslie Porterfield on the salt flats of Utah with Harlem's Addicts Rehabilitation Center Gospel Choir performing a song written specifically for the video. After a devastating crash on the Bonneville Salt Flats at over 100 mph in 2007, Leslie Porterfield returned in 2008 and broke three world motorcycle records with a top speed of 234 mph.
