** [[SarcasmMode It's sure convenient that this was meant as a parody]], seeing as otherwise it would just be a really obvious mockbuster of ''Fast and Furious'' with borderline racist characters. Just like how convenient it was that ''SpaceMutiny'' was [[ParodyRetcon also a parody]], or otherwise it would have been just an extremely bad movie. Yep. Dodged that bullet.
*** There are exactly two points where any form of parody is made obvious: The opening has Ford disturbing a sign that ends up reading "CARS SUCK" and the moment mentioned in ShoutOut above.

Do not watch this movie if you know absolutely anything about motorcycles or if you expect stunts, action and plot developments anywhere near the realm of physical plausibility. If you remember your MST3KMantra or drink a few beers or smoke some weed beforehand, however, [[SoBadItsGood you might enjoy it]].

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPWoz7WTmjU This video]] should tell you everything you need to know about it.

* CaptainErsatz: "Man, Tom Cruise sure did look badass doing those motorcycle stunts in that ''MissionImpossible'' movie. Martin Henderson looks sort of like a scruffy Tom Cruise, let's cast him and do a lot of the same sort of {{Badass}} Shots that Cruise did in MI."
