A man, his museum, and lives changed forever.
Bobby Haas purchased his first motorcycle at the young age of 64, and he was hooked. Big time! Within the span of the next few years, Bobby went on to accumulate over 230 motorcycles and build the Haas Moto Museum, in Dallas, Texas to showcase them. The museum is arguably the finest motorcycle museum anywhere but what really makes it stand out are the more than 60 avant-garde and truly exceptional custom hand-built motorcycles that Bobby purchased or commissioned from some of the best builders on the planet. In that process, Bobby and the custom builders lives changed forever, finding friendship and healing on their journey.
Leaving Tracks features the rockstars of custom bike builders like Craig Rodsmith, Max Hazan, Kiyo Kiyonaga, Dirk Oehlerking, Christina Sosa, Walt Siegl, Shinya Kimura, and more. But this isn't a movie about motorcycles, it's about people. The film is raw and honest, and at times emotional. Pipeburn says it's "the perfect example of how motorcycles can bind people together like family and can help heal old wounds."
We are extremely excited to be able to bring Leaving Tracks to you, and while the film is available on big movie platforms like iTunes, wouldn't you rather support TMFF and watch it on TMFF Cinema? <wink>
