First one delivered to the US, not THE first.

Didn't somebody post a video the other day of somebody getting a new exhaust put on theirs. Some dude in the UK.

Crazy.

I don't know about you guys, but back in 1986 when the movie Top Gun came out, I was only 4 years old. Soon after that, I developed this passion for jets and motorcycles, and I really owe a lot of that to my father being a flight instructor in the Navy and to Tom Cruise's role as Maverick.

Say whatever you want about the weirdo, but I bet some of you got on a sportbike because of him.

I remember watching some show a few years back where Tom took delivery of some MV agusta that had just been released.
I wanna say they gave it to him as a gift.
Guess the italiano's got a sweet spot for Mr. Maguire.

I think what I'm trying to say is, Tom Cruise is a . He is too small for it, and will probably wad it. I just hate seeing someone I hate enjoying something so nice. I don't think it's jealousy, cause I hate that Matt leblanc guy too and seeing him on a new Aprillia made me ill. If I saw someone who I like getting a cool bike, I'm happy for them. This is pretty much about my hatred for Tom, and in other ways, scientology.
I would strangle him to ride Katy and that bike.
Guess I was the only one who thought a movie with 67 scenes of guys in towels staring into each others' eyes was a little too gay for me.

Stoner at a whopping 134 lbs soaking wet.


I think Haden and Spies are the two biggest guys in racing at the moment with Yates and Mladin coming in after.

Give it a rest fools. Every one here into sport-riding, would probably give a jewel (family style no doubt) to have a Desmo.
I know if I could, I would.
Probably get some of the same remarks from you guys. Haters.

He is actually good friends with Collin Edwards and they hang out together at Laguna Seca when the MotoGP race is held there. He also rides motocross and has his own track at his house.......

I do agree with many of you, I must be a hater.

But I hated hime BEFORE he got the bike. especially after hearing him rant about scientology. and who among us has never hated? I'm getting tickets to to the Player Haters ball.
