Prolly (haven't seen the movie).

Turbine bikes aren't fiction, though. Jay Leno rides a MTT Y2K Turbine bike. What footage I've seen of him riding does not include any visible pressure waves, though.

It was the speeds implied by such pressure/shockwave that I was mainly refering to. Speeds before only seen, by me, done on film by Priss in her Hardsuit riding the Highway Star.

Yes, turbine bikes are real, so are bikes that can do 300+ Km/h (Hayabusa), but riding one of them at speeds in crowded streets that produce a pressurewave that breaks car windows? Pull the soddin' other one, a Coyote-like running up the back of a bus or simliar would be a RL result with just a small error by anyone.

I just worry that some day that a Darwin candiate will see this film and decide "I got dat bike" & "Og, can do dat", I'm not worring for the imbacile just the poor sod they're gonna run into when they goof up.
