I only saw one of these people wearing proper protective gear......Tim Allen.

Long sleeve shirts, high top tennis shoes, shorts, NO helmet.......common sense should tell you that this is gonna hurt if you fall off......OH wait I said common sense, oops I forgot....common sense does not exist.

I should remember what I see every weekend I go out to play......at least it bring a small ray of light on to the bike world....To bad a lot of the people who will purchase bikes do so based on which bike is owned by which of their hero's and not based on skill or ability or anything else other than cool factor.

Same as the lowered Honda guys. It would be nice to see one of these "A" listers'  stand up  against some of the retarded anti-motorcycle legislation.

We can all dream can't we?

Dear Mr. Condon:

You may not know Ducatis from a hole in the ground. Mr. Orlando Bloom's motorcycle of choice in image 14 of 15 of your otherwise fine slideshow is not a Ducati Multistrada, or any other Ducati, for that matter. It is in fact a KTM Super Duke, made in Austria. It is a "hooligan bike" deluxe and a great bike for somebody who wants a bike of great build quality, sourced with fantastic components, but one which won't be seen between the legs of every other rider on the road. Different, but very, very capable. The R model in particular is extraordinary, and will put most Ducatis to shame in the hands of a skilled pilot. Thanks for the two-wheeled show nonetheless. The more the merrier.

Cheers,

Steve

P.S. I see you corrected the entry...thanks. Except the hp rating is way off. The stock Super Duke makes around 120 bhp and the R version makes around 130, with a great torque curve. Depending on intake, exhaust, tune, etc., the R can easily be tuned to around 135 bhp. All more than ample for a 390 lb (Akrapovic-equipped) bike on the street.

WHO the hell cares about watching a Media Star have fun!.......unless you have NO LIFE!!....I prefer to make my own FUN!!!!   These people,  Stars, would like to have some kind of private life without media on their butts.

 

Again....I prefer to make my own fun... and record it for my own family and not live my life through the pictures of a Star du jour.  Tomorrow they will be forgotten....Sad but true.

BTW, I like George Clooney, but please there's more to life than following his/anybody elses every move??!!!!

Get a life!!!  : () Ribbit, Ribbit

Those on the Ducatis are very cool, but overall I got to go with House. Classic Triumph dirt bike style from the 60's and at home the GSXR1000. 2 great rides!

Somebody needs to tell Usher, that sneakers and a ducati ain't cool worth a dam!!  First off sneakers on a sportbike, shows everybody that the rider doesn't know JACK. Also, regular pants almost the same. Hope he dosen't fall with those sneakers.

Clooney is a traitor to his country and should never have been allowed to buy a Harley or any other American Icon, let alone druel all over young American daughters half his age!!!!

Clooney looks like a g'pa giving his grand daughter a ride on his bike....I will never understand why women like old men....never....Must be the money....sad. She must have to really close her eyes and think of a hot young man when they are intimate...just sayin'.
