I’ve kind of given up on the Terminator franchise because I quite frankly don’t know what to make of it anymore. Too much time-travelling. Too many characters. Too many Arnold Schwarzeneggers. Yes, it’s come to that point when the Terminator character has become so dry they’re trying to pull an X-Men: Days of Future Past and erase whatever happened in past movies like they never happened.

That seems to be the ethos of the latest Terminator movie, called “Terminator: Genisys”. Now I don’t know if there’s a reason behind the mis-spelled “Genesis,” but I do know that this movie is another attempt at confusing the world on what exactly is the point of all these Terminator movies.

Thankfully, the first trailer of the movie did offer a glimpse of something I found particularly interesting. Check out the trailer, specifically 2:09 into it. In it you see Schwarzenegger drop down from God-knows-where into a moving train, all while riding what looks like a Harley-Davidson or a Victory cruiser.

Seems kind of fitting that Schwarzenegger’s resorting to these stunts just to make the movie more dramatic. I like the effect of a motorcycle dropping into a train and then racing on top of it, even if I’m not quite sure how this particular stunt will turn out.

Hopefully, the bike remains intact after its excursion atop the locomotive. I’m not keeping my hopes up, but still, my fingers are crossed, which is short of saying that I might end up watching the movie just to see how this particular stunt plays out.

Yes, I get excited over mundane things like that, so as long as they involve Harleys, Victorys, or any other cruiser, for that matter.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
