Another movie thats got a cool thumper in is the Lost Boys.
The main character rides one around, he get to lift the hot chick.

Who is not so hot anymore starring as a housewife in a show on TV now.

It was a Honda XL , unknown size.


Lost Boys
A motorcycle gang that are also vampires.

The new guy in town rides an XL 250

Italian Job: the bike escorts for the armored trucks are on R1150RS  although they sure a shit dont sound like them...they dubbed it with a 4cyllinder scream like that of the GSXR or similar..


I just wanted to comment on that - it really irks me when they dub the sound to something stupid.

You ALWAYS have a GSXR type sound on a highspeed chase.

I've seen a movie with a Duke twin it it, and it had all sounds at different stages. Sometimes it sounded like a twin, sometimes a inline 4 even once did I hear the 'riinnnng-tinnnnng-tinnnng' of a 2stroker ...

 :x



Edit = paycheck is another one where they faaaark up the sound ...


just enjoy it as comical relieve

you know how many times i almost fall of my chair laughing in movies when the have a computer scene

all computers make bleepy sounds when you press a key  :lol:


Yeah, and they type like mal just to have some weird text scroll down on the screen.
Cursors on screen also make sounds. You know you have a hightech computer in movieland when as the text appear on the screen it sounds like a dotmatrix printer.
And yes, at every password prompt you can type in 'Override' and there it goes.
It is also cool when they can interface anything with anything. You just have to have tried once to connect your PC to your cellphone (with the supplied cable) to know how amazing these guys are !

 :D  :D
02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

How about Mission Impossible, a Triumph speed Triple that changes tyres in mid air, road going to knobblies, I want one.

As for Quadrophenia, I am not sure if anyone else other than Ice Cream Man and I know what that is. I had a Vespa like that in England in the early eighties, very cool.

In T2 the young guy rides an old 4 stroke Honda (XL 125 or the likes) which sounds like a KX250.
Success is a matter of hanging on, after others have let go.

Taken from moviemistakes.com about Torque: "In the movie, both Ford and the two chicks somehow do a burnout, lift the front wheel, and spin 90 degrees, all without moving. This is impossible. A burnout happens when you lose traction, and a wheelie happens when you have too much. And the spinning is just impossible."

 :D  :D  :D  Another thing to practice on my way home.

Hey, you're not the only old guys from My Generation (geddit?) here. Only last night I was reading through a compendium of rock&roll writing with one critic trying to argue the case that the Skins were the true descendants of the Mods. Bullshit, but I'm hijacking.

One of the more classic old movies.

The Great Escape.

Ramping a Triumph over the barb wire is the coolest way to get away from the Nazis, ever.
