    Yeah, I second the motion about the sound editors. It seems that being a biker or driving a bike is incompatible with this profession (except maybe in Australia...). Because it's not a new thing. I remember old movies where a 1 cylinder 2 strokes MX bike sounded like an in-line 4 4 strokes rice rocket. And vice versa...

    Well, among other things, I ride a strictly street-legal purple Goldwing with fantasy-themed aerography and an Héchard side-car and it certainly gets me pulled over quite often. Just as I got with a heavily customized Sportster. But I've never been pulled over with my plain vanilla Beemer despite riding it quite faster than the GW and the Sporster. Never got a ticket but had to wait for the cops to fully examine the bikes...

    And while my Beemer sleeps outside every night, I have never let the Harley or the GW alone or far away. Because eye-catching bikes *do* get stolen more often than plain ones. As it happened a few years ago during the yearly Hog meeting at the French Côte d'Azur. A trailer full of custom bikes were stolen then, including a Captain America replica. Anyway, the rich kids and old men that are going to buy them are never going to ride them on any road on any civilized contry...

    As usual "cool" means unusable and unridable.

    Certainly a rigid chopper with an extremely long and impossibly angled fork is the best machine to ride with one hand on bad roads while you're taking out zombies...

    In this sense the only realistic movie from the point of view of the rider and the mechanic is still Mad Max, the original one. No freakin' weird choppers there, only logical ridable bikes.

    Logical

    Here the lobbies behind the laws that forbid this kind of stuff in the US are not so strong then there.

    On the contrary the big content lobbies are not only strong but friends of the government, so the 3 strikes stupidity. But that's changing: instead of the usual know-nothing consensus, there's infight in the socialist party over the 3 strikes thingy, not everybdoy aggrees :-)
