Answer: As a souped-up sick UD Replicas Motorcycle Suit. Question: What is one more way in which the Dark Knight rises? Designed especially for the latest Batman trilogy's epic conclusion, the Dark Knight Rises Motorcycle Suit decks out riders in head-to-cod-piece leather armor whose details mirror the on-screen elements of Gotham's protector's, and Kevlar inserts engineered to serve as the wearer's own protector during precarious encounters on the road. The suit is a movie replica, yes, but a costume, definitely not. And unlike the Old Glory-hued Captain America Motorcycle Suit, this superhero incarnation sticks to Batman blackness that won't get riders laughed out of--or forcefully removed from--legit biker bars. Well, as long as the golden utility belt stays outside, anyway.
The price quote is for the full Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit combination, though the jacket, pants, gloves, boots, and belt may all be purchased separately as well.
