Top Six Movie Motorcycle Scenes

Many movies throughout cinematic history provide adrenaline pumping action motorcycle scenes. From chases, escapes and rescues, along with mesmerizing acrobatic feats, motorcycle stunts have provided some of the most entertaining sequences in movies. There are literally hundreds of favorite scenes, not to mention movies having story lines centered around one of America’s favorite pastimes. Audiences thrill at the thought of having the wind in their face and the ability to achieve some of these stunning memorable performances. Before engaging in any potentially hazardous riding stunts, protect that precious machine by visiting MotorcycleInsurance.com.

The Great Escape

This dramatic and daring scene has Steve McQueen’s character attempting to escape Nazi capture by racing across country on a 1940s BMW boxer. Though ably maneuvering the bike across rough terrain and successfully jumping a wooden fence, in the end, he crashes and becomes entangled in barbed wire.

Terminator 2

Who can forget the awesome scene where Arnold, on a Fat Boy Harley, rushes to the aid of John Connor. Racing through traffic, Schwarzenegger guides the Harley with one hand while pumping and shooting a shotgun with the other. Leaping off an embankment wall, he catches up with Connor, snatching the boy from the dirt bike with one hand.

Matrix Reloaded

This action packed scene has Morpheus, Trinity and the Keymaker running from Agent Smith and company. In a last ditch effort to escape, Trinity and the Keymaker hijack a Ducati 996 from a transport trailer, sailing over the front of the truck and weave through traffic on the expressway.

Mission Impossible II

This treacherous scene has Tom Cruise racing down roads on a Triumph, swerving and skidding around traffic. He encounters the villain at the sand dunes, where one bike flies over the other. A heart stopping face off occurs, as each bike races toward the other, culminating in each rider leaping from their bike and colliding in mid-air.

Knight and Day

Tom Cruise and his reluctant counterpart, played by Cameron Diaz, race through the streets of Spain, while jumping traffic and running with the bulls. At one point, in self defense, Cameron swivels to the front of Cruise in order to unload a clip at the pursuing villains.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life

Just to show that ladies love their bikes as much as men, this scene has Angelina Jolie competing with Gerard Butler, where she performs such acrobatic feats that include leaping off the Great Wall of China and popping wheelies behind her frenemy.
