It is a publicity thing! The media thinks if they show that "Tom Cruise" is interested in motorcycle racing that will make the general public interested in it also! Dumb but true!

Like I said in another thread, it was brilliant of Greg White and Kevin Schwantz not to even mention them when they (Tom & Katie) were on camera.

I think Tom should give me that duc he bought. He ain't ever going to ride it right anyway. And he don't mind throwing away money with the scientologist and all.
