We learn at a very young age that two is always better than one, and the same is true for Walt Siegl creations. In this case we have two delicious Ducati Leggero’s. The Walt Siegl Leggero Seattle & BC ($CALL). Both having had a complete overhaul its nice to see their original classic appeal remain intact.The Leggero Seattle has a more classic vintage touch, stripped down for that naked look. It features Showa front w/race spec Gold valves and cartridges, Brembo brakes, WSM Kevlar bodywork, Bruce Meyers 944 big bore engine with modified cylinder heads, Motogadget Tachometer, and WSM stainless mufflers. The whole kit sits on Marvic Magnesium wheels wrapped in Dunlop Q3 tires. The Leggero BC has more of a modern look and features a modern exhaust and a contemporary aluminum swingarm that is about 55 mm longer than other Leggeros. Additional specs include Brembo brakes, WSM composite bodywork, chrome moly trellis frame, harness, and stainless steel mufflers. The Leggero Seattle and the Leggero BC are a couple of my favorite Leggero's by Walt and if you want your own, based on the same platform, customized by Walt, follow the link to his site for additional ordering information.

If the trailer is any indication, The Signal ($TBA) looks to be right up my alley. The movie stars Laurence Fishburne, Brenton Thwaites (Nick), Beau Knapp (Jonah), and Olivia Cooke (Hailey). The movie starts off with Nick, Jonah, and Olivia taking a road trip to Cali and on the way discovering a signal that could lead them to Nomad. Nomad is a genius computer hacker who hacked into MIT when they were students there.
Following the signal, the friends end up at a shack in the woods. Nick and Jonah start exploring when they hear Hailey's screams coming from the car. When they get outside they see something that kicks the movie into high gear.
The next scene is Nick waking up in a wheelchair in a research facility. He is told by Laurence Fishburne that he's come in contact with an Extraterrestrial biological Entity, and that Hailey is in a coma, and Jonah is missing.
Check out the Signal when it comes out this June. When you click the link to the website you need to type 'help' to get the main menu. It's pretty cool the way they set it up to look like a computer prompt.http://youtu.be/WV44-lQGlwk

A word to the wise; if you are planning a bank robbery don't make the rookie mistake of leaving any evidence behind. Heat ($6) tells the story of a group of robbers who learn this lesson the hard way. Starring Hollywood royalty Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, along with Val Kilmer and written and directed by Michael Mann, the title comes from the heat the group feel when they realize they have left a vital clue behind. This is one of the great crime action dramas that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish, it is also the first time Al Pacino and Robert De Niro were ever seen on the screen together, and has probably the best shoot-out seen ever shot.
