* Subverted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' where Stan and Steve are on a road trip. Steve accidentally knocks over a line of motorcycles, but the owners (all {{badass}}, Hells Angels-looking types) are very understanding, saying it was just an accident and that there's nothing to get upset about.

Often there is a row of motorcycles parked at a bar (or restaurant, or any other building, but usually it's a [[GreasySpoon seedy biker bar]] located on the edge of town). Naturally, someone's going to hit one, and it will fall and hit another, and that will fall and hit another and so on -- like the old DisasterDominoes. That'll get a [[ZergRush swarm]] of ([[AllBikersAreHellsAngels stereotypical]]) bikers ''[[BerserkButton real]]'' [[BerserkButton angry]] and desiring revenge on the offender. OhCrap.

* ''SmokeyAndTheBandit'' did a variation on this one: After Cledus gets beat up by bikers because his dog supposedly bit one of them, he stumbles outside and sees their bikes lined up. So he gets in his semi and runs over the entire line of them on his way out of the parking lot.
* Played with in VinDiesel's ''Film/XXx'', when a row of motorcycles, instead of being knocked over like a set of dominoes, ''explodes in series''.
