Thumbs down Damn Tom Cruise...

Okay, soo I went with my friend (female) yesterday to get her hair cut, while I was waiting, I started looking thru an Enquirer, and I see an article about Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, well I flip the page, and there he is on a MV Agusta F4 screaming around an airport with some other guy on a Ducati, neither of these two idiots have any gear on, and the guy on the Duc is wearing boat shoes and no socks! I dont really like Tom Cruise in the 1st place, but this makes me hate him. I hope he has a high speed get off!!

"Hey look at me, I'm cool like Tom Cruise cause I dont wear any gear when I ride"

Agreed. Not a good image to portray.

What do you expect from a guy who is used to going mach 2 with his hair on fire. (I mean before he married Nicole )

Don't try to keep up with my life, you'll only get hurt.

The latest ad I saw for GEICO had a cartoon picture of a guy on a sportbike (looked like a late '90's ninja) wearing no gloves, open faced helmet w/o glasses (if i remember right), jeans, sneakers, a 50's style cruiser jacket (all zippers & buttons), and to top it all off he had on a Fonzy scarf. Now for an insurance company you would think they would be a little more conservative than that, I would expect full leathers, boots, gloves, and full face helmet. I mean an open face helmet is bad enough but no eye protection on top of that!?!?? No Gloves?!?? I'm guessing the guy drawing the picture has never gotten a pebble or bee to the finger at 70 before. Oh well, just rambling I guess.

Whoops...my mistake, just saw the ad again and he was wearing a full-face helmet. All other stuff was still missing though.

I know the pic you are talking about an I'm sad to say it's a 98ZX9R. And to top it off my insurance company is Geico.

Back in the late '60's and '70's when I started riding we didn't HAVE to wear any gear... but on my motorcycle I always wore jacket, boots, gloves and helmet!

That was when motorcycles were dangerous and sex was safe!
