You probably know Jason Momoa for his roles as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones (RIP) or as Aquaman in, uh, Aquaman, but did you also know that the A-list actor is a massive motorcycle enthusiast?
Back in January 2019, the Hawaii native toured the Harley-Davidson factory in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and, as you can see from the below video, had the time of his life.
Judging from the Instagram post uploaded immediately after his visit, the Aquaman star had a blast checking out the Harley factory’s extensive collection of bikes. He even embraced his inner cheesehead for the occasion.
First off. Happy birthday to the king love u Elvis. Secondly I love u @harleydavidson mahalo for the amazing tour. It was an honor to make the pilgrimage to the Mecca and third Milwaukee you are amazing. Wisconsin I’m so impressed. The future is exciting another check off my bucket list #findyourfreedom. #cheeseheads #happybirthdayking. #harleyforlife Aloha j
What’s even cooler about Momoa’s love of motorcycles is that he shares it with his son and his daughter. In a YouTube video uploaded in June 2019 for Father’s Day, he shared the story of what motorcycles mean to him and how it was basically a lifelong dream to fix up a bike that he now gets to ride with his two kids. That sidecar really comes in handy.
“It has taken three decades in the making,” Momoa talks about in the video. “The longest dream I have ever held onto. And now, the best part is that I get to share that dream with my children and the people that I love.”
“We built our family heirloom. We’re the Momoas. We’re the knuckleheads. And with every ride, whether it’s me, my daughter, my son, or even a grandchild I don’t know yet. They will share in the miles and memories we were creating.”
How awesome is that?!
