It’s in people’s nature to be interested in the lives of others, especially celebrities. Considering the theme of our app, we are not going to talk about just some random celebrities but only those who ride motorcycles. Are you interested in superstars who share the same passion as you? Then start exploring with our help!
1. Tom Cruise
We commonly see the actor riding a bike at the speed of the wind in his action movies. And you’ve probably heard that Cruise is known to do the stunts on his own, so you could assume he really does ride a bike. The thing is, this love of motorcycles is not just for the screen. In real life, Cruise is also quite passionate about bikes. The actor is commonly seen riding his Vyrus. Besides, it is believed that he has a full garage of vintage motorcycles.
2. Keanu Reeves
Another celebrity whom you have frequently seen on a motorcycle in movies such as The Matrix, Constantine, the John Wick series, and others, Keanu Reeves, also is an avid motorcyclist in real life. He even has his own motorcycle manufacturing company named Arch Motorcycles. The actor founded the company with his friend Gard Hollinger in 2011.
3. Gordon Ramsay
You have probably heard that a temperamental chef is an avid biker. But do you know how many different bikes he owns? Currently, there are five bikes in his garage, among which there are two Yamahas – FZR 1000 Genesis and R1, two Ducatis – 748 and 1098S, and Honda Fireblade. Some say that Ramsey also owned Ducati Desmosedici.
4. Bear Grylls
This shouldn’t come out as a surprise since Grylls is quite an extreme adventurer and survivalist, so it’s only natural that he is into bikes, the most adventurous vehicles. The star says he started riding a motorcycle when he turned 16 and was immediately hooked. He talked about owning numerous 125s and 1000s bikes throughout his life, the most recent being Triumph Tiger.
The first lady on our list is Pink, a famous American pop and rock singer. She can often be seen both off and on screen riding a bike and is even married to a retired motocross athlete, Carey Hart. Heck, Pink even proposed to her future husband on a pitboard during a motorcycle race! It is believed that the star has several bikes, but in most real-life images, she is photographed riding her Hinckley Triumph T100 Bonneville.
6. Christian Bale
Christian Bale is another actor you can often see riding a bike on the screen. Take just the Batman series, for instance. In his off-screen life, Bale also was a passionate motorcycle rider who had been in several accidents that left him with various injuries, such as a broken arm. Why do we say that he was a passionate motorcyclist? Because after Paul Walker’s death in a car accident in 2013, Bale’s wife, fearing for his life, demanded the actor give up on motorcycle racing.
7. Gerard Butler
Gerard Butler is a passionate motorcycle rider believed to own Triumph and Indian motorcycles. However, in 2017 he got in a motorcycle accident, and it’s unclear whether he still rides his bikes or has given up his passion.
8. Orlando Bloom
Another famous actor on our list, who has been known as a biker for many years, Orlando Bloom, even partnered with BMW to release a custom bike, S1000R. Based on the photographs, it is safe to assume that his favorite brand of motorcycle is BMW. However, he had also been seen on Husqvarna 1903.
9. Ryan Reynolds
Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has a huge passion for bikes. The actor admits to having eight bikes in his garage! Some of the motorcycles he mentioned are various Triumph models, a limited-edition Ducati Paul Smart, and a 1975 Honda CB750.
10. Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt loves not only riding but also collecting modern and vintage motorcycles. The actor’s collection includes BMW 1200GS, Ecosse Titanium and an addition of a World War II Nazi model, costing around $400,000.
11. Angelina Jolie
Women celebrities are not frequent on our list, but Angelina Jolie should definitely be included. You may not frequently see her photos on a bike, but it’s confirmed that she owns such bikes as BMW F650GS and an MV Agusta. And, of course, you can see that she’s quite familiar with motorcycle riding based on how she looked on the Triumph Street Triple R in Salt.
12. David Beckham
Another non-actor celebrity in our list is stellar football player David Beckham. He’s not only known as a passionate motorcycle lover but even filmed a documentary called ‘Into the Unknown’ where he rode a specifically modified T100 Bonneville on his trip around Brazil! The football star also has several Harley-Davidson choppers and several Triumph bikes.
13. Alanis Morissette
Another female star in our celeb biker’s list is Alanis Morissette, who is known to have several bikes and recently had been seen cruising around Los Angeles on a spectacular Ducati Monster.
14. Justin Timberlake
The stellar singer is known to be a huge Harley-Davidson fan. He frequently rides around Los Angeles on his custom-made back in 2009 Harley. It’s known that Timberlake has an impressive car collection, but it’s not clear whether he owns a single bike or several.
One thing Cher is famous for besides her singing is her spectacular stage outfits. You can notice that many of her looks are quite biker-inspired – Cher is no stranger to all-leather leather suits and studs. So it shouldn’t be surprising that the singer loves to ride a motorbike! The last time the star had been seen riding a bike was a black Harley-Davidson in the Happy Harley Days/Rejoice on Rodeo parade in Los Angeles.
16. George Clooney
Clooney had been seen riding a variety of bikes, mostly Harley-Davidson choppers, but also a customized Bonneville that caught the most attention. The motorcycle catches the eye with yellow cam covers, leather studded panniers, and a racing seat hump. You can think whatever you want about such decorations, but the actor definitely got a thing for spectacular bikes!
17. Stephen King
