I've read several reports that Keanu Reeves will be seen riding a V-Rod in the sequel to "The Matrix"; which is due to be released next summer. Most of the reports come from Australian web-sites (the movie was filmed there). Anyone know anything definitive on this?

I hope not! For one that guy is a dweeb and for the other, I fear that this bike will be a fad fashion item. I have seen that Armani uses the bike in fashion adds in EU. I mean give me a break!

I know Reeves is a real motorcycle nut. Could be true. I remember reading he's had a couple of serious accidents too. One producer wanted a clause saying he wouldn't ride durring filming and he wouldn't do it.

My wife watches those CSI shows and one of last week's episodes (I don't know if it was the vegas one or the miami one) had a bunch of Harleys parked along a curb, with a V-Rod parked closest to the camera.

spotted on tv!

I caught that CSI episode Guido. They all jumped off their hogs and beat an Arab cabby to death for running down a white pedestrian. A real PR bonus for the entire moto-community... NOT!

There's also an insurance commercial running out here with a chick on a Vrod, riding thru the woods dodging a deer. Anybody catch that?

V-Rod is "in" for ads.

Another tv ad I've seen featuring the V-Rod is for H.H. Gregg and it starts off by showing the bike then pans over and shows a big screen tv which is showing a football player dressed like a TN Titan tackling some guy in street clothes. It must be a regional ad. I'm not sure what the V-Rod has to do with a big screen tv but it is eye-catching.:eek:

Unfortunately, Rob, I've also seen that insurance commercial. My wife always gives me grief for riding a "chick bike" every time that commercial comes on...

There I was thinking that surely they will use the V-Rod for the upcoming Terminator3 Movie, and now I've heard a whisper that the chosen bike is an 'Indian'............... Anyone know different ?

Oh well, that's a shame.
I'm sure Matrix 2 will take more money than T3 at the box office because their guys made the right choice to use the V Rod .

Keanu - V-Rod - Young, fast, modern

Arnie - Indian - Old, Slow, old fashioned

I mean the bikes of course !!

Lets see next year ?
