    Tom Cruise can ride!

    Watched the movie tonight. Was ok, fairly solid. Actually the motorcycle stuff was some of the most interesting parts.

    who else can do a 180 degree nose wheelie and accurately shoot a hand gun at the same time.

    With the kind of $$$ they toss around, cost of getting trained would be a drop in the bucket.

    He's been doing his own stunts for years now.

    If I was a multi millionaire (billionaire?) and money was no object I'd be able to do spend the time and money to learn to do all sorts of cool stuff as well. John Travolta, for example, owns and is licensed to fly a few jumbo jets.

    The closest I'll ever get to that is MS Flight Simulator, or perhaps if I want to piss away $500 or so, an hour in a real simulator.

    Notice his user name. Pretty sure he already flies more than gliders.

    I'm in awe that anyone can ride like that with the fork travel cut down to about 10mm....

    However, if he wasn't producing it, no other production would risk having such a big star being hurt. These days, with CGI you can paste anyone's face on a stunt double's body convincingly enough. Something tells me he's doing his own stunts not for the believability aspect, but because he's an adrenaline freak.
    Meant to respond to this;

    He's taken quite a few celebrities out for his other favourite activity, sky diving! Adrenaline junky confirmed!

    Re: Tom Cruise can ride!

    I wonder why Tom in the clip is kinda getting ready to put his foot down. It seems like the wrong thing to do. Must be for a dramatic effect.

    Re: Tom Cruise can ride!

    Why is it so important that some actor from Hollywood aka the cancer of America can ride a bike?

    I'd have to re watch it, but if you move your leg forward adjacent to the front wheel while going into a turn, you can load up the front tire more.
