    I wish they had the new color schemes in there, I'd have loved to see the Kalamata scheme. Oh, and the front end still dives on braking :D

    I havnt seen the movie yet, but when it was filming, sombody took a couple videos of them doing some of the stunts with them and put them up here.

    I thought it was in the Video thread, but I cant find them now.

    They were jumping some cars with them, looked pretty sweet.

    Thats too funny, I almost posted the same thing last night. Just saw the movie, completely badass. The only thing that would have made it better would be if batman was riding a triple black :D

    You don't think they overbuilt the hero bikes, like the Mustang in BULLITT, or just trashed a bunch of machines like DUKES OF HAZZARD ? You know it's a movie right? :lurk:lurk

    Ready for the new BMW commercial:

    "You need this bike to escape from Batman... in the desert"

    or

    "Unstoppable. Even for Batman"

    etc...

    I say it tongue in cheek. I love my F8 and defend the model regularly when people are talking shit for minor issues. It does have a few (easily fixed) problems though. I'm as thrilled as any F8 owner to see it on the big screen:thumb

    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.
