Going to The Bonneville Salt Flats is how racers remind themselves of why they are alive. The salt feels completely limitless. There they become like gods and heroes. The records that a racer sets go into a book, like every great story... up until the invention of the movie camera.
“Run Across the Moon,” is a feature-length documentary following Scott Kolb’s journey to be the fastest man on a 125cc motorcycle. It’s a nearly impossible goal, but Scott’s gift is the belief that he can do something that nobody else can. Being the fastest man on a 125 means getting to 200 mph before anyone else. While 200 mph may not seem that fast, it is a mythic benchmark when racing on the salt, and Scott’s 125cc engine has less than a quarter of the power people usually throw at the problem.
For the last seven years, Scott has worked tirelessly to turn 200 mph into reality, each year getting closer to his goal. Broken records are made from hard lessons and for Scott the next step is to start from scratch and build a whole new motorcycle: a 125cc Full Streamliner. This fish-shaped, eleven-foot-long, carbon-fiber motorcycle will have what it takes to break the 200 mph record in 2016.
