motorcycles in movies trivia......

ok people, let's do something a lil different,
(unless this has been done b4 and is a repost, )

anyway, here we go...............

1. name the bike that Tom Cruise's character, Maverick, rides in Top Gun.
(easy one)

2. name the bike that Michael Douglas' character rides in Black Rain
in the first scene.
*bonus*-- also in that same scene what bike does he drag race against
and beats?



after these are answered if ya got any like these, post 'em.

Top gun - ninja 900

Two theories on the bike from black rain, 1981 Honda 400A or a Honda Silverwing with a backrest add-on. According to here.

Some guy claimed he set it up for the movie;
Quote:
I did the bike back in 1984. It is a Honda 400 automatic. I believe the year to be about 1980 or so. It was bought along with two stunt bikes that weren't autos brand new from a dealer as leftover models. The automatic had its Comstar wheels converted to spokes to resemble the stunt bikes. The fairng is a brand name Kutter. I bought them from a company in Iowa I believe named the Kutter company. The three seats are one off,with hot pink velour inserts custom made in Drag Specialties upholstery deaptment. The sissy bar was a standard Drag spec. item. The handlebars are the 6 bend variety. As for the bikes today...one of the stunt bikes remains purple and is on display at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, MN. I redid Princes bike along with the thrashed stunt bike in black and gold for the movie Grafiti Bridge in about 1990. As for Sport Wheels having any of the bikes..doubtful...but any thing is possible. What they do have is a replica Kutter fairing that I sold them years back. They tell everyone that its off Princes bike.......wrong. Any other questions ?? I'd be more than happy to answer.....Tom.
Here's a question; What kind of bike did arnold's daughters boyfriend ride in True Lies?

Haven't seen it in years but I remember it being green so I'll go with Ninja ZX7R.

What Harrison Ford movie had a scene at Deal's Gap?


Not going to include this in trivia, but if you ever been to Deal's Gap, watch Two Lane Blacktop, it's on comcast ondemand free movies right now. The last 30 mins or so is all around the dragon and it shows what the store looked like when it was the crofton motel and diner and the speed limit was 55 mph.

good summary of it, I am not sure they actually raced though. They kept getting side tracked and they all kept trying to rape the girl.

Which movie features a highspeed chase scene on a Ducati 916?

And in the same movie instead of the bike being labeled as a 916 what does a character purposely mislabel the 916 as?
