Celebrities Who Ride Harley-Davidsons

Popular celebs on popular motorcycles.

Celebrities are known for their glitz and glamour, the movies or TV shows they star in, or the songs they sing. Their work (or paparazzi footage) can only capture so much of their personal passions and interests, but one thing that we found is that many celebrities are motorcycle enthusiasts. More specifically, they are fans of The Motor Company, Harley-Davidson.

Here’s a star-studded list of favorite celebrities who are among the ranks of Bar and Shield lovers.
