50. Jason Momoa

Recently, Aquaman and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa did a commercial. Presumably, it is for Harley Davidson though it was never really discussed. However, it features him riding over scenic desert landscapes talking about his lifelong love of motorcycles. In fact, he shares it with his kids. It did not start off that way though. First, he purchased a Harley to fix up but says reality sunk in. Translation means he became a father and did not have time to find parts and tinker around in the garage for hours and hours on end. Yet, three decades later he has a bike. He calls it a family heirloom and his kids love it.

When he is not busy being a Ralph Lauren polo model or hosting seasons of the popular Bravo show “Make Me a Supermodel”, Tyson Beckford can be seen tooling around town on a few of his motorcycles. Yep, the store has several, but the favorite has to be the L Diablo two Softail made by none other than West Coast Choppers. The bike features a West Coast choppers el diablo frame, drag handlebars with straight bar risers, and iron cross intake cover, conventional Front suspension in Softail shocks for the rear. Our image features another one of his famous bikes, I candy apple red Ducati. He likes to take breaks into around the West Village aboard the red wonder in his spare time.

It should come as no surprise Tom Cruise loves to ride motorcycles in real life. He has certainly been featured alongside them and many of his films like Mission impossible to where he rides a speed triple and T595 Daytona. He is often seen cruising around town on his Vyrus Vyrus 987 C3 4V worth over $100,000. The small Italian motorcycle manufacturer is based in Corianna, Italy. They produce some of the most beautiful, sleek motorcycles in the world and can be customized more than a Ferrari or Lamborghini. No wonder Tom loves his. In the image you see him zipping around on a BMW for one of his many blockbuster films.

47. Justin Timberlake

Admittedly, it is hard for Justin Timberlake to escape cameras, but he does get to venture out on the open road every now and then on his custom Harley. Most people are shocked to see him running around LA on the back of a motorcycle. They wonder if he is acting for a new movie or if it is real. Well, it is all real for sure. Hang around Cafe Med in LA long enough and you just might see him pull up with a shiny half helmet and signature jacket from his own fashion label, William Rast. Wonder where Jessica Biel sits?

46. Katee Sackhoff

KATEE SACKHOFF(Fresnhess)

So Battlestar Galactica actress Katee Sackhoff commissioned classified Moto to build a bike, and they went over the top. It is fast and furious, based on a late model EXR 650 L with a board out 675 mL engine. The Decoty swingarm replaces a much heavier triumph unit and ninja forks were replaced with YZF Dash R6 are units instead. The bike is a hodgepodge of customization featuring custom stainless exhaust as well as custom upholstery by Roy Baird, RVA. Powered by a Shorai Lithium Ion battery, the best course of action is to move over if you see her coming up behind.

45. Michael Fassbender

MICHAEL FASSBENDER(Pinterest)
Known for the film, “Inglorious Bastards”, and the host of other Hollywood films, Michael Fassbender loves his motorcycles. He has done a complete tour of Europe with his father and completed Spain and France solo. So if you so if familiar face a top at BMW 1200 GS adventure, that was more than likely Fassbender tooling around Europe. He purchased a motorcycle after his triumph speed triple bike was stolen. No worries though. When you have starring roles and films like “12 Years a Slave” and have been seen at the Cannes film festival doing the can-can beside Brad Pitt, you can afford a new motorcycle every now and then.

44. George Clooney

Enjoy pictures of George Clooney on his motorcycle while you can. After a horrifying crash in 2018, he says he is done for good. While cruising around Italy Last summer the star was thrown over the top of his motorbike when another car pulled in front of him to make a turn. He flew 20 feet in the air and required a hospital stay in 0lbia. Before that, he could be seen alongside Jay Leno, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt with his motorcycle. Or motorcycles we should say. George loves Ducati brand bikes and owns a few Harleys as well, the most famous being his customized Bonneville of course. It features yellow cab covers, studded leather panniers, and a nice racing seat heart. Too bad we will not see him cruising around town anymore.

43. P!nk

P!nk loves to ride motorcycles on and off screen. She is married to Carey Hart, former motocross professional, so motorcycles are never out of reach. Often times, she attended his races and even reversed marital tradition by proposing to him on a pit board while he was racing. And while she has been seen on several bikes, her favorite is the Hinckley Triumph T100 Bonneville she owns. Also, Carey built a custom motorcycle for her after the birth of their son, Jamison. It was a “push present”, but she still prefers the Triumph!

42. Christian Bale

CHRISTIAN BALE(Pinterest)

Christian Bale owns a couple of Ducati motorcycles and has held a passion for racing. In an interview with DP/30 on YouTube, he admitted to having a metal plate in his arm and wrist due to a few motorcycle wrecks. He has been known to race with a team, and says there is nothing better than, “running a motorcycle wide open.” While it requires focus, he says he enjoys the rush. However, rumor has it his wife forbid him to ride anymore after a series of motorcycle accidents (not his Ducatis). Evidently, she is not a fan of concussions!

41. Olivia Munn

 

Olivia Munn owns a Triumph Bonneville which she wrecked. Yep, the Magic Mike actress reportedly took her motorcycle out for a spin in the dead of night. She wanted to avoid heavy LA traffic and other reckless drivers so 2 AM to 4 AM seemed like a great time. Friends kept pushing the matter until she finally took the Triumph out for a spin during the day. Traffic made her nervous so she decided to return home when she wrecked because, get this, a coyote dashed across the street! But if you are going to get a scar from a top-of-the-line motorcycle this is the way to do it!

40. Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt(Pinterest)

It is no secret Brad Pitt has been a long time motorcycle rider. The actor known for blockbuster movies like “Fight Club” owns several motorcycles including an Ecosse Titanium and  Ecosse World War II Nazi model. Both of these bikes rack up a price tag of about $400,000. He’s been seen riding so many bikes you might think he works at a dealership. Usually, you can find him riding his favorite, a BMW 1200 GS. Sounds like something an Inglorious Bastard would ride.

39. David Beckham

David Beckham(IMDb)

When he is not playing soccer or modeling, the ex England football captain can be found hanging out with his family or riding any one of his motorcycles. He has several cruisers ranging from Harleys to Triumphs. Yet, we did get an up close and personal look at his Motorcycle in the 2014 BBC documentary Into the Unknown. That featured him running a T-100 Bonneville to tour Brazil in grand fashion. He also owns a British Customs DBSC rugged motorcycle (featured in our image). Check out the mud all over the tires. David certainly did not buy his motorcycles to park in the yard.

38. Marisa Miller

37. Angelina Jolie

Who likes Indian and Triumph motorcycles? Yep, Angelina Jolie. She owns those brands and rides others in movies. For Salt, Angelina road a Triumph Street Triple R, while choosing a Yamaha TRX 850 for Laura Croft: Tomb Raider. When she turned 35 her now ex-husband Brad Pitt gave her a red MV Augusta. He had to help her learn how to ride it because it was so big and powerful. She loves it though and says there is nothing like letting your hair down while zipping around the track.

36. Michelle Rodriquez

She doesn’t just play the gear-head in Fast and the Furious movies – she’s actually one in real life! Michelle Rodriquez enjoys cruising around town on her bike.

35. Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling(Pinterest)

Ryan Gosling loves to ride around Los Angeles on his tricked out custom dirt bike. He often shows off his skills for two wheels on film. If you remember the movie The Place Between the Pines, Gosling road his motorcycle everywhere. We even saw him pulling the big heist making a robbery get away. And while there was a stunt driver, movie execs say Ryan did most of the driving. The biggest challenge was abiding by insurance company terms during filming. To comply, they started Ryan off at 3mph to get him comfortable before working up to faster stunt speeds.

34. Kid Rock

Kid Rock(The New Orleans Advocate)
The New Orleans Advocate

Kid Rock is a huge motorcycle enthusiast. In fact, he launched a collaborative effort with Harley Davidson in honor of their 110th-anniversary celebration in Milwaukee over Labor Day weekend in January of 2013. The partnership between Rock and Davidson featured a quote by Kid himself. It was on the merch line and said, “I can not hear you over the rumble of my freedom.” In addition, Kid also owns a slingshot named the Kid Rock SSR. It is a three-wheeler built by Polaris featuring a carbon fiber body and turbocharged 2.4 L eco-tech engine (400 horsepower). It features road stabilizer bars for tight turns and road race shocks for getting down and dirty over uneven terrain.

33. Cher

Cher(pinterest)

Cher has a long love of motorcycles. She was 14 when the riding bug bit her. Her long career as part of the Sonny and Cher singing duo is legendary and it’s hard to imagine her riding a bike. Yet, she still enjoyed riding, Hollywood star icon status aside. This picture of her is from the mid-1990s. She was riding a cruising a classic Harley right down Rodeo Drive during a Christmas parade. That is pretty Hollywood and pretty Cher. Epic.

32. Adam Levine

Adam Levine(Us Weekly)
US Weekly

Seems like Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is more than just a pretty face after all, and more than a mere judge of a popular singing reality TV show. He happens to own a Harley Davidson FLSTF fat boy,  his pride and joy. You can often catch him cruising around LA to take his girlfriend for a spin or meet friends at the famous Mustard Seed Cafe in Los Feliz. Good luck getting pics of the mall though. Adam owns quite a few Harleys and keeps them in rotation.

31. Charlie Hunnam

Charlie Hunnan(Pinterest)

Best known for his incredible breakout role on Sons of Anarchy, Charlie Hunnam is a native Australian with an impressive motorcycle collection. His favorite Is a Harley Dyna Super Glide. Yeah, it is the same bike he rode during the television series. He admits he does not want to be THAT actor but there is simply nothing better out there so you might as well ride the best! Just make sure you pay for it. Charlie has sticky hands. He admitted during an Entertainment Tonight interview to stealing the motorcycle Jax road during the show to keep as a souvenir. Wow!

30. John Travolta

John Travolta(Pinterest)

Wild Hogs was a comedic blockbuster (for us anyway) featuring John Travolta, Tim Allen, William H. Macy, and Martin Lawrence. Travolta was right at home. He’s been riding motorcycles since he was 18 years old so hopping on a Harley was no big deal for him. In fact, it was his love of riding motorcycles that inspired the movie. He says motorcycles were his first mode of transportation after moving to Hollywood because they were cheap. However, we are quite certain the Harley Davidsons he owns today are worth much more.

29. Norman Reedus

norman-reedus(AMC)
AMC

Norman Reedus gained a lot of popularity with his role in the Boondocks Saints. He later blew up on screen playing Darryl Dixon on The Walking Dead. And while he rides a motorcycle for the show, he also rides them in real life too. In fact, he is such a major grease monkey he produced his own TV documentary, Riding With Reedus. He heads out with a friend over the back roads of America to explore unique places on, you guessed it, a motorcycle. His collection includes to Triumph motorcycles, a Honda, Tiger 800 and custom Harley Davidson. His dream bike is an Indian Larry Chopper. The Ducati you see in the image was for a promo shoot!

28. Hugh Laurie

Hugh Laurie(Pinterest)

Turns out Dr. House does not limp at all! He rides a motorcycle instead. And while Hugh has been spotted on a Triumph Scrambler, BSA, and AJS model bikes, his favorite is the Triumph Bonneville. In a twist of irony, Laurie was the first cast on screen sitting atop a Triumph. He says riding is a lot like flying when traveling over twisty, winding roads. Yeah, that is fine for some of his bikes, but he should probably not try that with his collection of classic Guzzis!

27. Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves(PETER YANG)
Peter Yang

Keanu is an absolute megastar and has an equally impressive bike collection to match. It is subdued just like his personality. For example, walk around his garage and find a 1973 Norton commando 850 MKA2 he acquired in 1987. Then look for his second bike, a Matrix Reloaded dark green 2004 Ducati 998 Reloaded Edition (made specifically to match the movie)! In addition, Keanu also co-founded Arch motorcycles which began life as a custom contract for Harley Davidsons Dyna Wide Glide. After a prototype was built, Arch motorcycles were born. Their first creation KRGT– 1.

26. Joshua Jackson

Just Jared

You might remember Joshua Jackson from the Mighty Ducks. If not, you definitely remember his starring role in “Dawsons Creek”. He also loves motorcycles and loves storylines involving one. His most recent movie featuring a motorcycle is titled One Week. In it, he plays a character diagnosed with cancer. Yet, rather than opt for the treatment he opts for a Triumph and road trips across Canada. This is where art mimics real life because Jackson owns a Triumph too. He has been riding his since the early 2000s.

25. Alanis Morissette

@Alanis

Alanis Morissette is a known motorcycle fanatic. Yet, it is more than just the wind in her hair. She said riding helped her cope with the break up of her megastar boyfriend Ryan Reynolds (who also enjoys motorcycles). Of course, like many others we have seen on our list, Alanis seems to favor Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati. She has been spotted around town riding several different models, specifically a Ducati Monster S4RS. Black leather, amazing chrome and plenty of perks, her bike is just perfect.

24. Jay Leno

Jay Leno(Myung J. Chun - Los Angeles Times)
Myung J. Chun – Los Angeles Times

If you’ve seen Jay Lenos Garage you know he has a thing for cars. He has an almost equal passion for motorcycles too. Check out the list. Jay owns a 1924 Ace Motorcycle XP4, 1933 Indian, a 1939 Brough Superior SS100, a 1958 BSA DBD3 4 Gold Star, a 1971 Velocette Thruxton, a Ducati 900 Super Sport TT and a 1946 WR Harley–Davidson. Pull up his show and search these names to get up close and personal with most. He likes to feature them often.

23. Ryan Reynolds

Ryan-Reynolds(Alex Martino)
Alex Martino

The list includes a Triumph New Speed Twin, Triumph Tiger 800 Range, Triumph Street Triple Range, Triumph Factory Custom, 1975 Honda CB750, Ducati Paul Smart Limited Edition, and a custom Triumph Thruxton. Okay so do you ride around on these in your spare time? Ryan Reynolds does. He has been collecting for more than a decade. Yet, of all the bikes in his collection, he favors Triumph most. His favorite is his 1964 Custom Triumph 650. The look, feel and power are out of this world!

22. Bradley Cooper

bradley-cooper(BAUER-GRIFFIN-GC IMAGES)
BAUER-GRIFFIN-GC IMAGES

Bradley loves bikes. And like many on our list, he leans he favors Triumph Bonneville. He tools around Los Angeles on his custom road bike, but favors Triumph most of the time, like many of the celebrities on our list. How do we know this? When filming overseas he often requests Triumph motorcycles to be close by so he can ride whenever he wants too. These could be leased bikes or those owned by individuals. Seems like the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive has pull and sway in every nook and cranny of the globe! Maybe he should start a business… Triumph on Demand.

21. Stephen King

Stephen-King(Fan Pop)
Fan Pop

Horror author Stephen King made a cameo appearance in the wildly popular television series Sons of Anarchy. He even rode his bike into the scene! He is an avid motorcycle enthusiast with a soft spot for the 1986 Heritage Softail he owns. He has been riding motorcycles since he was 22 years old so the cameo appearance for Sons of Anarchy made sense. Show creator Kurt Sutter got in touch with King and offered to put him on a Harley for the show. That sealed the deal; hence the scene with Stephen King aboard a bright red Harley Davidson Road Glide!

20. Orlando Bloom

Orlando_Bloom(Visor Down)
Visor Down

Orlando really made a mark as Legolas (the pensive blonde elf) in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Yet, when he is not wondering around mythical lands protecting rings with legendary power, he enjoys his other passion, motorcycles. A long-time fan of classic BMW bikes, he has several. However, the one that usually gets the most attention is his custom-built S1000 R. The funny part? He often brings his dog along for a ride tucked inside a tiny knapsack. Forget Lord of the Rings elf on a shelf. This is Orlando Bloom dog on a hog!

19. Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando(Pinterest)

Who can forget Marlon Brando in The Wild One on a 650 cc 1950 Triumph 6T Thunderbird? It is easy to understand how a young Brando, clad in leather, became the iconic representation of sexually charged youthful rebellion. Marlin admits to riding during the early morning hours through New York City. He would go out between 1AM-3 AM wearing his signature t-shirt and blue jeans to pick up girls and go cruising around the city. Brando says there was not much crime in New York City then so you could pull it off. He also says when he began to feel oppressed with the fame he would simply hop on a motorcycle and head west, riding for miles and miles through the desert.

18. Richard Hammond

Top Gears top talent, Richard Hammond, has come along way since first being seen hosting Used Bike Heaven on an extremely obscure British satellite channel named Men and Motors. Since his rise to stardom, he has amassed sick automobiles and motorcycles. Included in his collection is a 1999 Bimota SB8R (known as the Black Beast), a 1976 Kawasaki Z 900 (which tops out at 133 mph) and a ton of Ducatis. His favorite Ducati is the 1900 Super Sport which he keeps polished and pristine at all times. Other favorites include a Norton Commando 961SE and a Brough Superior SS100. Richard Hammond is no joke when it comes to vintage motorcycles.

17. Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls(Pinterest)

If you are looking for hard-core survivalist types who love motorcycles, look no further than Edward Michael Grylls, better known as Bear Grylls. He has been obsessed with them for years, beginning as a 16-year-old rider. He rides everything from 125 cc models to 1200s. Hence, it just seemed like a perfect fit for Triumph to choose Bear in a feature for their updated Adventure Motorcycle, the Tiger 800. Who could really show it off better than him?

16. Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan(John Byrne Cooke)
John Byrne Cooke

It is no secret Bob Dylan is one of the most successful music artists of all time. He defined a generation and also makes our list of motorcycle celebrities. Yet, the real story about Bob is the accident that happened in 1966. While driving back in the states after a lackluster European tour due to his new sound, Dylan had a wreck. For many years the cause of the wreck was unknown until it was discovered Bob Dylan hit an oil slick. Wait, Sam Shephard says he was blinded by the sun. No matter what you believe, Dylan ended up with a cracked vertebra and an impressive case of road rash. Secrecy let the rumor mill swirl, but that is what we love about guys on bikes anyway, right? There is always some sort of manly mystery lurking about.

15. Usher

Usher(FameFlynet Pictures)
FameFlynet Pictures

Usher does more than just thrill crowds with pop songs. He often gives opportunistic photographers the chance to score a picture of him atop any number of impressive motorcycles, if you can catch him. When he picked up his green Ducati in NYC, fans immediately noticed the singer zipping around town. He also as a custom bike which he was spotted riding in Beverly Hills. It is the creation of Darwin motorcycles, based on one of their existing Brawler GT models. The motorcycle is as beautiful as it is super fast. And riding one in a suit? That just gives you mad bonus points.

14. Johnny Hallyday

Johnny Hallyday(FameFlynet Pictures)
FameFlynet Pictures

Johnny Hallyday remains synonymous with Harley Davidson. He was a French rocker and real-life gearhead. For more than 50 years he was perched on the handles of Harley Davidson motorcycles, even from his military service when he rode a Hydra-Glide 1200. His collection expanded over the years to include the Milwaukee big twin, Softail Springer, XLCR, Electra Glide, heritage soft tail and night rod. In addition, he owned many European and Japanese motorcycles as well as the Honda CB 750 Four, Kawasaki 900 Z1, and Ducati 996SPS. He died in 2017 of lung cancer. His 1989 Harley was auctioned off for charity posthumously and fetched $298,000. Not bad for the French Elvis!

13. Dean McDermott

dean-mcdermott(Radar Online)
Radar Online

Deans troubles with money and the law are nothing short of legendary. After being slapped with eight counts of contempt and possible jail time over Mary Jo Eustaces claim he owed more than $100,000 in child support, things looked dim. And that was just the beginning. Traveling further south down bankruptcy avenue City National Bank and American Express lined up to call in almost $500,000 from the defunct couple. However, Dean is not one to panic. He went out and bought a new Victory motorcycle for $15,000. This was in addition to another bike he owns worth almost $30,000.

12. James Dean

James Dean(Pinterest)

James was famous on screen and off for writing motorcycles he scored his first motorcycle when he was only 15 years old, a 1947 CZ 125-CC. He was the only kid in his town to own one and rode it like a bat out of hell. After dropping out of college he traded the CZ in favor of a Royal Enfield 500 cc Vertical Twin which he subsequently traded for an Indian warrior TT that ended up in New York at a service shop where Steve McQueen was head mechanic. And that is how history was made. His last bike was a Triumph TR 5 Trophy.

11. Ewan McGregor

Ewan McGregor(Bloomberg)

When Obi-Wan Kenobi is not working on a Star Wars movie he enjoys collecting motorcycles. Ewan has several gorgeous bikes and a documentary to prove it. He and good friend, Charley Boorman produced a British television show documenting their 19,000 mile trip from London to New York. Included in Ewans motorcycle collection are several stunners like an Indian Larry Chopper (1972), Moto Guzzi V7 Sport And a 1956 Sunbeam S7. He splits them up in garages between his two houses in the Scottish Highlands and Los Angeles.

10. Wyclef Jean

Wyclef Jean

So Wyclef John has a massive car collection, we have seen that before. However, he also owns a fully chromed out custom painted red and blue Spiderman motorcycle. It was designed by famed bike builder Orange County Choppers and remained with Wyclef for quite some time before OCC acquired the bike again and put it in their museum at OCC headquarters. However, not to worry. Wycleff has several more motorcycles. For his 43rd birthday, he posed shirtless on a Ducati. What?

36. Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood(Pinterest)

Eastwood has been in love with motorcycle since the 60s and 70s, particularly British motorcycle maker Mark Norton. He has also been spotted on the back of a 1968 Norton Commando Fastback with scrambler style exhaust and a parallel twin 750. And in true Eastwood grit, he became a Hollywood force, obtaining a pilots license so he can helicopter in to work at the studio to avoid downtown traffic. In his heyday, he owned a Norton Ranger that was his pride and joy. Do you feel lucky? It does not matter. Eastwood is!

 

8. Steve McQueen

Steve-mcqueen(New Atlas)
New Atlas

Steve McQueen is by any account one of the most iconic motorheads ever to grace the 20th century. Decades after his passing he pops up and pop culture, advertising and still has a huge fan base. In addition, he was a huge motorcycle collector. And the stories behind some of them are pretty epic. For starters, one of his, the Husqvarna 400, sold on eBay. It had all of the original bearings and gaskets. McQueen also left his Triumph Desert Scrambler. It had a custom built Rickman Chassis and was painted his favorite shade of slate gray. And how can you forget the Triumph TT 650, used for the movie The Great Escape. In it, McQueen did most of the stunt riding.

7. Clark Gable

Clark Gable(The Museum of the San Fernando Valley)
The Museum of the San Fernando Valley

Go back a few Hollywood icons further than Steve McQueen and find Clark Gable. He was a huge motorcycle enthusiast. He owned two favorites, a Harley Springer, and Harley Davidson knucklehead. Finding them today can be tough. After all, it is rare to come across a true piece of motorcycle history, but you can sense the Knucklehead is on loan at the Harley Davidson Museum in Hollywood. The 1943 is all black opposed to his 1942 Knucklehead which had a black and white color scheme. Either way, Gable loved to cruise around rural California enjoying the scenery with friends.

6. David Blaine

David does more than just real crowds with his insane illusions. He also happens to have a smoking hot fiance, French model Ali Azee. When she is not modeling and the 40 something-year-old illusionist is not busy peddling magic, the two of them can be seen cruising through the streets of New York. David owns a stunning custom BMW bike featuring a nice size windscreen. Simply perfect for all of those NYC starts and stops, or random flying objects during a parade or protest.

5. Dax Shepard

dax_shepard(Jamey Price)
Jamey Price

Dax has been a self-described gear head since he was 12 years old. He grew up in Detroit and his mother worked for general motors, then left that job to go work for a company in charge of all General motors press events. As a youngster, he scored an Elite 80 moped, then upgraded to a GSXR. He kept cruising the streets until he turned 16 and got his license. Then it was on. Now, he can rebuild engines and work on just about any modern or classic motorcycle. This is great for him and his kids because they can help him work on minor bikes like his 2006 Sport 1000, Multi-Strada Touring bike, Ducati and GSXR 1000 track bike. Impressive.

4. Tim Allen

Tim Allen(Walt Disney Studios)
Walt Disney Studios

Before starring in the movie Wild Hogs, Last Man Standing and Home Improvement star Tim Allen rode sport bikes for fun. He since became a huge gear head. If you have seen any video online concerning his garage you know what we mean. He has impressive automobiles and motorcycles. One of the best is his Brawler GT -R which one-second place at the 2010 AMD World Championship in Sturgis. Tim had a lot of control over the design of the bike and it shows. The black finish, six-speed tranny, and 2-inch smooth belt drive give the bike plenty of power. The seat looks spectacular and the engine makes sure Tim really is the last man standing no matter where’s he goes.

3. Hunter S. Thompson

Michael Ochs Archives-Getty

Hunter Thompson is a legend. The way he describes riding motorcycles can make you salivate. Personally, he owned a BSA Lightning and a Ducati 900 Super Sport. It is one fine engineered motorcycle featuring incredible racing lines. Just looking at it standing still you would think it is doing 60mph! And, for torque, Hunter loved the Ducatis response. Take the RPMs from 4000 to 6000 on his vintage in third gear and you find yourself moving from 75 mph to 95 mph in two seconds. And you still have three more gears! No wonder Hunter loved this bike.

2. Adrian Brody

Adrien Brody(Pinterest)

If you have seen The Darjeeling Limited then you know what it is like to see Adrian Brody pull up on a motorcycle with Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman in tow. While he is known more for movies then motorcycles, he does own some of the best. The one in the movie is a hero Honda (translation = non-stunt bike), and while driving was difficult, it does not compare to LA. Brody had a bad accident on his Ducati monster in Los Angeles in 1992. He emerged scraped, but largely unscathed. When he was younger he owned an old CB, then a Ninja ZX 900 that looks like something he describes as coming straight out of Mad Max. These are a far cry from the Ducati as well as his gorgeous Vino scooter. It is a customized road liner with an 1854 cc engine, beefed up, but fun. Adrian says he loves to make his bikes as lean as possible.

1. Adrian Grenier

Adrian Grenier(FlynetPictures.com)

Starting an Entourage has its perks, just ask Adrian Grenier. He got to ride a Harley on set during filming. The scene was shot on location at Urth Caffe in West Hollywood. It helped that Adrian is a longtime rider and even owns a couple of motorcycles himself. In 2015 he and Barbara Palvin came out with their own clothing line wit ha few motorcycle faves. The fall collection, “Buffalo David Britton”, featured a leather motorcycle jacket described as edgy but relaxed, which is probably how he would describe his electric EVOL all-electric motorcycle.
