Motorcycles Have Co-Starring Role In Blockbuster Summer Movies

From the captain of the USS Enterprise, to a superhero with metal claws, film heroes love to ride motorcycles. In a scene from Star Trek, a young Captain Kirk watches his future starship under construction from his bike.

Clutch and Chrome features a story on the role motorcycles play in upcoming summer films Star Trek, Wolverine, and Terminator Salvation. According to the story, motorcycle riding sets the tone for the lead characters of these films and their independent spirit.

William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk of the Star Trek TV series, rides motorcycles. In this YouTube video, Shatner describes learning to ride as a teenager by "borrowing" his neighbor's bike.

In the upcoming Terminator Salvation, killer robot motorcycles roam the roads of the post-nuclear landscape and do battle with human resistance fighters.

Here is video of the bikes, inspired by the Ducati Hypermotoard, in action...

The Ducati homepage features more details.

The character of Wolverine can be very foul-tempered, but actor Hugh Jackman was all smiles when he arrived at the film's premiere in Tempe, Arizona last week.

The storyline for A Taste of Summer may be in Bright Shore, Massachusetts, however the motion picture wasn't really shot in Massachusetts or even in the United States. It was taped in Vancouver, Canada. Winter and his better half, Sanchez, star in the motion picture together.

A Taste of Summer'ın hikayesi Massachusetts'teki Bright Shore'de olabilir, ancak sinema filmi gerçekten Massachusetts'de ve hatta ABD'de çekilmedi. Kanada, Vancouver’da bantlanmıştır. Kış ve onun daha iyi yarısı, Sanchez, birlikte sinema filminde yıldız.
