Divided by a pie? Would that be apple, key lime, or pumpkin? Personally, I don't trust gourds when it comes to statistical analysis...

It annoys me when they add this sort of thing. The fact that he has a collection of motorcycles is vaguely relevant, in that it shows he's a bike enthusiast and not just another actor who's bought his first bike, but since everyone and his dog has seen Long Way Round by now, there's no need to make the point again. The bit about his kids is only there fore the subtext, which is 'See, We told you 160 mph motorcycles were dangerous: as a father and family man you should set a better example'. This isn't journalism, it's anti-biking propaganda. Grrr!

I don't think so. Check his previous posts, he's been around for a while.

The funny thing about it is they added that he has kids in order to show how irresponsible it seems for him to be fallutin' around on one o' them motorcikles. Because, you know, if he kicks the bucket who is going to be the breadwinner? That's just crappy entertainment news reporting.

He should have been riding a pushrod v-twin with unmuffled pipes, stretched out springer front, no rear fender and apehanger bars like everyone else. The cars would avoid him.

I love the details of the crash, "he fell off his motorcycle"
