I'm doing some research for something, and I was wondering if people know of any anime where motorcycles play a serious role in the plot. I know of Blassreiter and Rideback, but any others would be helpful too. All genres are fine. Does anyone know of some good biking anime?

For anyone needing info right off the bat for Kino's Journey, the manga was published in Tokyopop so you know it's good. Although a bit aged (anime debut in July 2003) it's really enjoyable. Unfortunately crunchyroll doesn't carry it as far as I see.

Blassreiter I think can be considered a motorcycle anime, at least for the first arc pretty deep too

For those in the US, it is available via Hulu and The Anime Network website.

Kino's Journey is the first to come to my mind. Yugioh 5d's has the gimmick of it but it's only a way of dueling.

hmm...

I know a manga called Girls Ride, it's a slice of life story of two girls in a budding romantic relationship and they both ride motorcycles. It was pretty good and bittersweet.

There was a lot of motorcycle riding in FF7 Advent Children

I can't really think of any, that hasn't been mentioned, where riding a bike is a central theme.

There's a mid-80s motorcycle racing anime I watched back in March 2003 called Futari Daka. I watched the Franch dub and thought it was pretty cool at the time.

There is a slice-of-life manga called Bakuon that is about a high school girls motorcycle club.
