Motorcycles in the Movies

Is it me, or does it seem that more and more Hollywood movies have motorcycles in them? The main part of this web site is motorbiker.org, a database of movies with motorcycles in them. This is a continuos project for me, since there are a lot of movies with motorcycles, more than I could ever imagine (the database has already listed some 600 movies with a backlog of 300). However, I've noticed recently that not only are the film producers making special biker-theme movies ( like Biker Boyz or Torque), but often the lead characters get to ride motorcycles in the "normal" movies as part of the plot.

For example in 2003, movies such as PayCheck, Charlie's Angels, Daredevil, How To Loose a Guy In 10 Days, Matrix, Terminator 3, Kill Bill Vol I, Tomb Raider, the Italian Job, Freaky Friday etc all have motorcycles in them. All of these movies are destined for the general public, not the motorcycle fans. A new movie that's to be released at the end of the year has Mel Gibson play undercover agent, infiltrating a motorcycle gang in the USA (the movie is called "Under and Alone"). The list keeps growing.

The last 3-4 years, some 20 movies had motorcycles in them, before that it would be on average 10 movies. So does this mean that motorcycles are now accepted by the general public ?
