Michael Cera: badass biker

Dailies -


Michael_Cera.jpgOne of our favorite quotes from recent years comes not from a sponsor-addled racer or testosterone-fuelled stunt monkey, but rather from a young man with a fine set women’s legs. Michael Cera knows that most people don’t ride bikes for the call of the open road of because of some primal need for speed, but instead to impress girls. Sometimes those girls just happen to be your cousin.

Pulled from “Arrested Development” Season One: Episode Nine, George
Michael finds himself needing some way to convince his love interest,
Cousin Maby that he’s tough. The solution? Motorcycles.

“Yeah, I’m gonna need a leather jacket for when I’m on my hog and need to go into a controlled slide.”

That pretty much sums up the reason most people become bikers, right?

    Ok, perhaps I am a buzz kill… but a HOG is Harley Owners Group. I really wish TV and Movie land folks would stop spreading poorly researched ideas because one intern though it sounded cool.

      Actually, I’ve heard bikers refer to their Harleys as hogs, scoots, scooters, mules, etc., my whole life. Not from television interns, mind you, but average bikers at bars, clubs, meets, shops, float-trip rental parking lots, etc.

      If an ex-Bandito I used to work with calls them hogs, I’m pretty sure he knows the difference between referring to a bike and the H.O.G.

      You must be rather young to not know that term, ya?
