As for who’s the biggest biker badass in Hollywood? On the human side, I’m going with Steve McQueen in “The Great Escape.” Only the biggest badass on the planet steals a motorcycle from the Nazis and jumps a barbed wire fence with soldiers in hot pursuit. But that Triumph TT Special 650 is more of an off-road bike that I wouldn’t necessarily call the biggest badass bike.
That’s why on the bike side of things, I’m going with Dennis Hopper’s 1950 Harley-Davidson FL Panhead Hydra Glide from “Easy Rider.” Every badass who was anyone rode — and continues to ride — one of these. They’re big, powerful, loud, and the older they are, the more badass they are. Thoughts?
