Steve Sidwell, Nicholas Bendtner, Micah Richards and Shaun Wright-Phillips. What do all these people have in common? Footballers, that’s right. But that’s not what we are interested in right now. They are also big motorcycle fans and have been seen out on the road on a variety of occasions riding trikes. Most clubs ban 2 wheeled motorcycle use as part of their contracts, but there is no restriction on riding trikes.
So what sort bikes do footballers go for?
David Beckham - Custom built Harley Davidson Knucklehead
Mario Balotelli - Harley Davidson
Carlo Cudicini - BMW GS
Even managers love their bikes, Andre Villas-Boas - KTM (Wants to take part in the Dakar)
Footballers may be seen out and about in fast cars, but when it comes to bikes its clear they prefer image over performance. There is a lot of passion for bikes amongst footballers with numerous charity events being supported, although they need to be on trikes thanks to their contracts.
What other footballers do you know that ride?
