Thanks, but no thanks. The entertainment industry is notoriously hard on everything they come in contact with so who knows the abuse these bikes have undergone. If anyone was going to abuse my ride, I rather it be me.
I like the "remedial biker 101" text that accompanies each bike. "It's stretched and slammed, which means we welded(!) a longer swingarm to the bike". "This bike is known as a 'gixer'"... I guess this is so the flavor-of-the-minute guy who buys one can fit in with the hardcore bike gangs he'll soon be trying to join.
"Sup yo? I gots the gixxer from the biker boyz movie. I'm 'groovy' right? Let's head to that 'solid' biker hangout and hit on some *****ez! 'Kay? I mean... Werd?"
I just saw yesterday where Lawrence Fishburn was quoted as saying that he had purchased a replica of the bike he used in the movie. My first thought was to question why he didn't get the actual bike he used. As I think about it, he DOES know the abuse these bikes have undergone!
I have re-thought my pozition on thiz pathetic movie. I hope it makez a ton of money, then the movie guyz will think that moviez centered around the motorcycle world make money, then we can hope for a decent film.
Dem ride be da shiznit yo,werd up. Let me see now, $10,000 for a new R-1,, another $10,000 to get ruff ryders to paint 'em up and I have a way cool sportbike thats not beat to jesus by some movie flake,,,,, or I could buy one of these 'cause it was "in the movie." Hmmm?
Over hyped, super abused junk, I have seen some of these hollywood bombs in the flesh in a recycling yard in Phoenix (we won't mention any names) and they were not good, like some body else said, a lobotomy would be better.
