'Desmosedici': Italian for 'stupidhead'

In what can only be attributed to his desire to reenact scenes from "Mission: Impossible II" (below), Tom Cruise is getting one of only 1,500 new 200-mph Desmosedici motorbikes, manufactured by Ducati. He's the first U.S. customer for the $72,500 machine.

In other Tom Cruise news, he just jumped up 735 spots on Harrah's dead pool. He is now listed at No. 2, behind Andy Griffith.

We wonder if you can do those stunts on your scooter. We're pretty sure Andy Griffith could.

i got nothing against andy. he was great in 'waitress.' but he's a walking, talking dead man.

Tom cruise is probably the most adventurous hollywood actor alive. reminds me alittle of Steve McQueen with all the bikes and cars. Must be nice to be able to spend £50,000 pounds on a custom built 170mph motorbike and not have to worry about the cost. one thing is for sure, I bet the bike insurance will be pretty hefty on his new machine. he must be obsessed with bikes, he already owns more than a dozen of them.
