Adrian Brody was a teenager when he got his first bike. The Ninja ZX900 was the young Brody’s preferred mode of transportation. He upgraded to a Royal Enfield bike after he got to ride one through the backroads of India in “The Darjeeling Express.”
The Oscar-winning actor nearly killed himself when he was flung off his Enfield head-first into the sidewalk. But when his buddy gifted him a Ducati Monster 900, the actor didn’t hesitate to hop back on.
In "Wild Hogs," Tim Allen had to learn how to ride a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. The massive bike was unwieldy, and he dropped the Hog several times. Costar John Travolta still teases him. Allen explained that he was used to Triumphs and lighter bikes. In the end, he learned to love the comfort of a touring bike and purchased a Brawler GT cruiser.
The exclusive bike was placed at the 2010 World Championship in Sturgis. It was hand-built by Dar Holdsworth and the Darwin Motorcycle team. Designed on an H-D FXR and powered by the trademark V-twin, it’s a rumbling yet cushy ride.
Hunter S. Thompson
Hunter S. Thompson tagged along with the Hell’s Angels outlaw motorcycle club to write a documentary on the subculture. He rode with them for a year until he got kicked out for suggesting a member not beat his wife. The iconic journalist published his experience in his book, "Hell’s Angels."
In one passage, Thompson describes the exhilaration of flying atop a bike at top speed. “You can barely see a hundred; the tears blow back so fast that they vaporize before they get to your ears. The only sounds are the wind and the dull roar floating back from the mufflers.”
It was a good thing that "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier already knew how to handle a bike. Grenier mounted this Hog when his character had to navigate the beast for a shot at Urth Caffé in West Hollywood.
In real life, he likes getting around town on two wheels. But don’t call him a petrolhead; Grenier commandeers a USA-built Evolve 100% electric bike.
One year before Pamela Anderson landed her first gig on "Home Improvement" in 1991, she was pictured here wearing a Canadian tuxedo as she rides on a Yamaha bike for an event.
Her love for motorcycles is actually well-documented. She's been seen riding a Triumph motorcycle, and there are also pictures of her on a Honda Valkyrie Rune as well. Since both Triumph and Honda make great bikes, we can only say that Pamela has great taste in motorcycles.
