Motorcycles race into summer movies
As summer films become more explosive and adventure oriented, motorcycles play a larger role. The bikes make good business for companies that build them and agencies that place them on the big screen.The superhero extravaganza "The Avengers"marks the first of many movies that will feature motorcycles racing onto the big screen this summer. Not only will Captain America helm a Harley-Davidsonin the big-budget Marvel movie, but one of the leads of "Men in Black" will time-travel to 1969 on board an "Easy Rider"-esque chopper. A circus bear will even throw a furry leg over a Ducati in the animated feature "Madagascar 3."
