Default Famous and infamous people who ride Sportsters

I just saw this on Foxnews.com and found it weird.

This is Drew Peterson, a Chicago police officer and currently a suspect in a missing wife case and the death of his third wife. Can you tell by the photo below what kind of motorcycle he is riding? Hint....look at the mirrors and speedometer. I think it is a Sportster Custom.

It's a rubber mount 04 and up
Any body else got a pix of some one famous or in the news riding a Sporty?
This could turn out to be an interesting thread Bert

Although I couldn't find a picture, Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver)lists a 1000cc Sportster in his bio.


Although its easier to find pics of Keanu Reeves (Matrix) on his Norton Commando, you can find a few pics of him on a Sportster Custom. www.mediastorehouse.com


I don't know if it was given as a gimmick by HD for her show, but every once in awhile you'll see video/pics of Jackie Warner on a Sporster (Bravo channel -> Workout): Vanity Fair

Great finds Weo!!

I better get this one in here before someone beats me to it.

If the Sporty is good enough for "The King", then it is good enough for me. Actually this is a KH but I am not going to be picky!

Duane Allman rode a Sportster. I think the LEO who's 4th wife is missing would be considered infamous instead of 'famous'.

In this Country you are famous until proven infamous...and then you just become more famous.

Looks to be a 1200 Custom alright, about as close to stock as you can get aside from the chrome side covers. I like his New Balance "boots" .
