Cruise has a long history of linking bikes into the storylines of pretty much all his films. We’d go as far as to say, if it’s a Tom Cruise film that doesn’t involve a motorcycle at some point, it’s probably crap – see Eyes Wide Shut!

With the filming of Mission Impossible 7 halted in Venice and moved to the UK to escape the COVID-19 virus and tough working restrictions in Italy, Tom was spotted at Dunsfold learning how to hoik a big minger with the help of a BMW G310, a wheelie rig, and an as yet unknown teacher.

The pictures show Cruise riding the bike that is equipped with a Sidewinder-style (remember them!?) trolley attached to the rear axle of the bike. The device allows the rider to focus on lifting the front and holding the bike at the balance point without the risk of it flopping over to one side.

The next installment of the Mission Impossible saga was set to land in July 2021, although with the filming still taking place in 2020 and further travel and working restrictions likely, it’s not known if it will still launch when planned.

The pictures of Cruise on the airfield is sure to help stir up some of the sunset rides along the runway in Top Gun, a role that really cemented Tom as a biker’s favourite Hollywood star. It’s also not long ago that he pulled the covers off the Kawasaki GPz900R he’ll be riding again in that film when he reprises his role as Maverick in the iconic film’s sequel.
