movie

I heard the movie was good but had no intention on going to see it in the theater until I read this tread. Rode my f8 to see it on Thursday and it was great! I felt like a movie star leaving the parking lot, the bike never felt better under me after seeing it on the big screen...

F800s -> fun!

Bat Cycle thing with the sideways rolling wheels -> lamest gadget in the film.

That thing has a big ass wide and tall front wheel. I don't think the front wheel would have steered using traditional methods. Plus, there's the coolness factor too.

Exactly the same here! Man was that great pulling off with my GS... I only missed the hot girl in the suit behind me!

and did you recognize the Schuberth helmet they were wearing?! (I own one of them too... never felt so cool with it)

Sorry Oso. Had just got thru reading a few threads that were all whining that their 800's were heavier than a 250 and blah,blah, blah. It was inspiring to see our machines in the movie this past weekend!

Too bad though, they didn't seem to wind the bikes out and really take advantage of how badass they are.

Also I understand there were a few accidents with the square tired Bat Bike. Go figure.

Loved your rebuild thread on the big orange bike. Kick ass!

Saw the movie twice, it's nice to see your bike immortalized like that.

Me to friend as they appeared: Look, they're on my bike!
(7 seconds later)
Me: They haven't gotten away yet? They're riding like [insensitive term]s if the cops cars are keeping up with them.
Friend to me: Never mind the cops, Batman's EMP would fry those BMWs with all their silly electronics.

I just watched it this weekend, pretty sweet!!

I do agree that they could have been wound up a bit more and had some better lean angles, but awesome none the less!!!
