Oh Good: The Dark Knight’s Batpod Spotted On Japan’s Roadways
A Twitter user by the name of Ryuuchan spotted something you don’t see every day on the roadways of Japan’s Chiba Prefecture last weekend: Batman, in broad daylight, riding around on a Batpod similar to the one from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.
The Batman costume looks spot-on, and while the Batpod isn’t quite the design from the movies (it’s got three wheels instead of two), it does look pretty doggone cool.

At the risk of spoiling The Dark Knight Rises for anyone who hasn’t seen it, this seems like a pretty terrible idea for Bruce Wayne now that he has established his life overseas after faking his death. The people of Gotham are going to notice this, man! Robin John Blake is going to be pretty furious.
