    Just got finished watching Loopers...interesting movie and some decent performances..good matinee film for sure.

    One thing was their interpetation of the future of motorcycling. They had a hover type of craft with a turbine engine as the frame with with a standard gas tank, handlebar with round speedometer, twist throttle, levers and even saddle bags. Kinda interesting how the one bike they showed was sorta hard to start like an older britbike....LOL...the tank and handlebar arrangement even look like it was lifted from an older UJM or a 60's britbike.

    Sorry, can't find pic online for now..will provide link if someone don't beat me to it.

    Kinda like the motorcycles in The Island (another movie).

    Spoiler Alert

    Half way through the movie I thought, "Why not just zap people back in time into the arctic." then you don't have to shoot them in the past. Bothered me after I thought that. Made the whole premise of the movie seem flawed to me. I mean obviously they had pretty good aim, zapping people back in time to appear right in front of their shooter. So why not just pop them 100 ft under ground, or over the ocean, or in a volcano, or just directly into the incinerator the guys use to burn up the bodies in the past...

    I love those saddlebags!! I bought a (larger) set for my bike 6-7 years ago. Saw the movie about a week and a half ago - I nearly platzed when I saw them on this future bike on the big screen. LOL
