Motorcycles in movies

There have been a number of great bike movies and bike scenes in movies.  No discussion on this topic would be complete without a mention of the greatest bike movie ever...Easy Rider. Two guys, riding across the country...experiencing freedom (along with a few other things).  James Dean in Rebel without a Cause, Tom Cruise rode bikes in a bunch of different movies, but most memorable for me was the scene in Top Gun where he's riding along at sunset next to the runway on his Ninja.  Anyone remember Little Fauss and Big Halsey?  Robert Redford was a motocross rider in that one.  Of course, more  recently (and probably the biggest reason that I'm back on two wheels after 30 years) was Wild Hogs.  How about Ahhnold riding the big Harley in T2?  I'm sure there's a million more that I'm not remembering right now but it's always neat to see a bike have a role in a adds a bit of interest to the show!
As always ride safe!
