What do you expect? the guys got more money than brains.. He could have picked up a killer MV or Ducati for a quarter of that and had just as good a bike.



If he really had any brains he could have a GSXR 1000 and have more bike than he could ride in a year for 10 grand.



Serves him right.

You have to look at it from the perspective of a man who makes 20 mil per movie. Buying this thing for him is like me buying a die cast model of the same bike.

It appeases the souls of the alien race that was stacked around all our volcanos and exterminated with hydrogen bombs.



I was going to post something about Xenu but you beat me to it, damn you.

I still trying to figure out the first sentence:

"Some people have got a lot of money and then there are people with a lot of money and Tom Cruise fits into the second category"

He could have paid $60k for a Bimota Tesi 2D and used the rest to pay for a psychiatrist.

Cruise actually is a motorcycle enthusiast. I would compare him to Jay Leno as a collector. Cruise also goes to the track frequently. There was a video of him on the track with a Ducati.

My respect for him doubled when I saw that.



It's still stuck at zero.

If I remember correctly, Vyrus had actually designed and maybe even built the Bimota Tesi 2D. They sell their version with a liquid-cooled motor.
