Wolverine and Motorcyles

With the latest Marvel Entertainment installment of Wolverine/X-Men movies ( if you don't know better to stick around through the credits in these flicks by now, you are a damn fool, nuff said). Wolverine/Logan once again does a bit of screen time on a motorbike. But it's brief, very brief. One is a distant aerial shot and the other is a quick pull up and stop scene in the snow. The bike is a Ducati Diavel Cromo, you actually get a better look at the bike when Wolverine's "bodygaurd" Yukio rides up on one, sans helmet, gloves or a jacket, in the snow. Must be a mutant thing.

Where "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" had the over the top but extremely entertaining scene of Wolverine taking out a helicopter on a Harley Davidson FLH, it's full-on bad ass! But the rest of the movie is pretty lame. In "The Wolverine" you have a good story that's dragged out in all the wrong places, the Jean Grey dream sequences were just too much. Overall, it was still better than the first one, but still fell short of it's cinematic potential.

Ducati Diavel Cromo

Okay, "The Wolverine" has Ninjas on motorcycles. NINJAS ON MOTORCYCLES!!!!

And in the first X-Men movie, the final scene has Wolverine/Logan stealing Scott/Cyclop's motorcycle. the bike was custom made by the short-lived Arizona based company, Titan Motorcycles. In "X-Men: Last Stand, Scott rides a custom Harley Davidson V-Rod.

And let's not overlook where it all started....in the wonderful world of Marvel Comics! Excelsior!
