Motorcycles are more than a mode of transportation in media, they are the epitome of all that is cool. From American classic films such as The Wild One, Easy Rider, and The Wild Angels, with the motorcycle comes an element of cool edginess. Even the futuristic motorcycle from the anime classic Akira carries this connotation, as its rider is trying to outrun police after gaining telekinesis.
