When it comes to the super-cycle, there are literally dozens of cool examples: Judge Dredd’s Lawmaster, Yvonne Craig’s TV Batgirl ride, even the weird super-speed version that alternate-universe Barry Allen/Hot Pursuit drives. Heck, even Robin’s weird red police bike from the 1970s has a coolness factor about it, especially in its resemblance to Kamen Rider 1’s Cyclone, leading us to today’s shovelhead query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is very fond of the late 80s version of Ghost Rider’s flame-cycle, the giant gothic chopper with all the angles, asking: Which super-cycle is the best two-wheeled (or more, we don’t judge) heroic conveyance of all?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Any time that Batgirl showed up on that motorcycle in the opening credits of the 60s show, I was enthralled.

    But nothing beats Pee-Wee’s Schwinn Western Flyer!

  2. I fully agree that the original Ghost Rider chopper is still the best out there!

    But for a not-too-close second, can I nominate the Speeder Bikes used by the Imperial Forces on Endor?
