12 O’clock Boys Documentary (2014)

Take a look into the real life of a young 12yr old kid that is filmed over a course of 3yrs as he tries to earn his street credit to be apart of a local Bike club. The club is inside the rough streets of Baltimore where gangs, violence, crooked cops and poverty are very common. The motorcycle stuff gets the community to put down the violence and just ride the streets. Pug, who this story is centered around just wants to ride with the pack and be known. During this documentary you see how hard it is for him to stay in school, avoid trouble, heartache and to be somebody. The Documentary opens with the truest piece to any motorcycle stunt rider which is, every rider wants to get to 12 O’clock on their bike, which is where the wheelie is straight up down. Just like the hands on the clock. Pug then says if you can get to 12 O’Clock, you the shit, that’s how you know you belong in the pack. He is correct. Brake control on a wheelie is the foundation of it all. During this documentary he grows a little older and finally buys his very own full size dirt bike so he can go make a name for himself and he does. Great look at not only Baltimore but also their bike life.
