Strap your hands cross my engines....

Jake is revving all kinds of engines on and off screen.

Here on the big screen in the second trailer for LaOD




and then off screen riding a beautiful British made 2010 Triumph Bonneville T100.

Throbbing engine between the thighs.. what would Sigmund say?

"The T100 is perhaps the most classically inspired of all, so much so that it could easily disappear into a vintage motorcycle festival."

Timeless 60s styling. Twenty-first century engineering. Modern interpretation of a classic.

The classic Triumph. "Parallel-twin, spoked-wheels and lashings of quality chrome. Twin pea-shooter exhausts, two-tone paint and that Triumph embossed seat say ‘classic British motorcycle’" but while the T100 may look like it comes straight out of ‘the day’, the technology and ride experience most definitely do not.

It has a 865 cubic-centimeter engine, modern day suspension and brakes. Motorcycles today have a fuel injection system,gives a cleaner, low emissions way to ride, you just have to push a button rather than old way of pulling the choke to start the bike. No carburetor. Triumph has done a little bit of a fake out, you think you are pulling out the choke to start the bike. NOT SO! Total styling fake out, they use throttle bodies to house the fuel injection system and when you "pull the choke", it does the same thing as pushing the button on more modern looking bikes. Jake's staying green in style.

Totally classical British. Wonder if he got it this spring as a thank for from his British director or British cast from PoP, if Duncan sparked his interested in bikes?

But Jake has made a modification to the bike. And and interesting one. Look at these 2010 Bonneville T100's

and now look at Jake's



Notice anything? There is little chrome, no flash, no two-tone paint job, it is all black and very very subtle as to not draw attention. The black jacket and that Darth Vader of a helmet can get you in and out just like one of those spies from the 60's who would have ridden, Triumph like Jake's.


And that long seat has plenty of room for two too.

Hmmm maybe that's reason for this fashion choice.
' Cause you know he had the helmet.

Guess, they're Born to Run.

Now that's Two Wheel Tuesday!

Could Jennifer Aniston’s new British BusMan boyfriend…

Just be Jake G on a British motercycle??

Jennifer & Jake would be a PR dream & in my view a match made in heaven.

Both guarded about their personal lives.
Both really into fitness & having hot bodies
Both single
Both rumored to be needy when it comes to relationships.
Both a homebodies who are vanilla

Austin and Sophia have a two part interview with Planet Green

Part 1

Part 2

Very interesting to see the differences in the way they answer questions.

Jersey Tom said...

Do other actors change who they are according to what movie they are promoting? Damn I wonder if Jake really knows who he is.

Gay friendy
Family man
Motorcycle stud boy.

Does this actually get more people to go to the movie? Jake's PR team must think so. The changes are so drastic it is ridiculous. I wonder if Depp or DiCaprio do this? It is sweird.

Special K said...

TMZ just had Jake and the bike the parking meter on the TV show tonight.

It wasn't about the bike, but about him trying to beat the ticket. How he ran out with the change to avoid getting. The TMZ staff was like via la Revolution against parking tickets, and how Jake is leading the way, and that Jake is their Paul Revere and then one of the ladies on the staff said no he's not, it took the ticket like a little bitch.

ESL? said...

Jesus, SpecialK, is English your first language. What the hell was that garble you just posted?

Special K said...

Well why don't you just watch TMZ and transcribe it yourself.

gay men love motorcycles said...

wtf, Tom, ever run into a gay guy who loves motorcycles? Have you ever been, say, in the San Francisco Castro district? You'd run into gay man that would likely shock you ... serious stud motorcycle types!
What the hell, Jake rides a motorcycle and immediately is a PR move? Oh please this is a bit too much! Would also help if you could please stop stereotyping gay men, I find your views immensely odd at times, considering what you say about yourself.

Jersey Tom said...

My comment had nothing to do with sterotyping Gay men. I just find it extremely odd that Jake is driving a motorcycle. When the heck did he get a bike.

I find it xtremely odd that the same person has spent so much time on this blog harrassing people over the last few days. Who the heck are you and what is the point? Get lost.

the real m said...

I think lots of guys go through a period of having a motorcycle. Until one or two brushes with near death, then they dump them. Besides, did you see that helmet? Complete anonymity. I bet Austin has an identical bike and helmet. But the most fun part would be riding together on one. Where else can they be out in public, with their bodies pressed together and get away with it. The best reason for the motorcycle.

I like that thought.

prairiegirl said...

I'll tell you who it is, Tom. You know who it is. It's the same one who calls me the sh_ _ stirrer.

And I'd like to respond to your comment, Tom, but first of all, this person needs to be addressed.

Person of 1001 names, you may as well use your former name because you're not fooling some of us.

And I'll tell you what. I may not always agree with Tom but I will not stand for someone telling him WT you know-what. That's absolutely uncalled for. You want to tell him to stop doing something? Why don't you stop swearing at him and show some civility?

That statement of yours has royally hacked me off. Tom has a right to speak his mind. He said nothing vulgar, nothing rude, nothing irrational, nothing hateful. It was his opinion and he had a valid point.

Whereas your statement was rude and it was mean.

Now go ahead, give me your best shot. I can stay up all night.

Special K said...

Exactly M!

And yeah you would never know it was Jake with that helmet on. And Kudos! Jake for responsible rider safety. The boots, the long jeans, the jacket to protect your arms, and a really good quality helmet, you take riding seriously.

Couldn't have said it better. That's definitely a dual seater. Sorta of a revved up version of a bicycle built for two!

prairiegirl said...

Okay.

You know, it was an 11 hr workday today for myself and I barely sit down and have to see that.

But while I eat my Lean Cuisine Herb Roasted Chicken and Diet Rite Red Raspberry, I'm going to settle down now. My anxiety's kicked in and my lung capacity gets all cut-off. I hate that.

Okay, now it kind of depends on what exactly you were saying, too, Tom. I interpreted it to mean you were associating those 3 traits/behaviors due to the movies he was plugging at the time. If that was the case, then there are some facts that would contradict that way of thinking.

But if you were talking about the 3 behaviors being so different from each other, I agree on some of that. Motorcycles typically aren't thought of as "family" oriented. Usually, alot of men are forced to give up their motorcycles when they get families. Or sometimes not. And sometimes, it's women who are the bikers.

I would just say that Jake just doesn't strike me as a motorcycle type. But, you know what? Actually, he looks pretty good up there on it.

I still detest the things. They're dangerous and can be deadly.

prairiegirl said...

I can't tell you the number of times I have had young men whiz by probably doing 100 mph on those things, weaving in & out between the lanes. Scares you to death, believe me. Not only that, it's just so stupid. All it takes is to come up on a really slow person and you're toast.

The other 2 things I hate is 1) the noise. Talk about noise pollution. They literally hurt my eardrums. 2) They are so hard to see. I can't tell you how many times I've almost pulled out in front of one and that's even been if they have their light on. They're too narrow and they can hide in your blind spot very easily.

But hey, alot of people like them and just like a sunroof, there must be something awesome about feeling the wind in your hair and all that. I miss my sunroofs.

I just hope that motorcycle isn't going to be used to speed away from the paps. If it's being used to get around incognito or to be able to ride with his SO, then that sounds awesome to me.

I think lots of guys go through a period of having a motorcycle. Until one or two brushes with near death

LOL ain't that the truth.

meter cheater said...

One time (in LA btw) I got a parking ticket for going over the meter time. However I sent back a note on the ticket, without paying, to protest it. I said I swear I put in enough money, blah blah (I was lying), I even listed what coin denominations I used (lol) and guess what. I got a return form letter from them saying that they tested the meter and yes, it was faulty. LOL as if they went out and tested one lousy meter just because one person said so! So Jake or anyone if you're reading this, try protesting it by saying you put the money in there, even extra money to cover it, and somehow the meter (magically) ran out and you got a ticket. See what happens..the worst is you'd have to pay it but it's worth a try.

Special K said...

After all the crap that Reese has pulled, Jake and Reese now have trailers out at the same time.

Reese has worked and worked over the past two weeks for PR spin, dragging the kids to church with the BF, dragging them home to Nashville, taking Ava on a look alike walk, getting mentions on ET, and on name drops everywhere she can. And she isn't getting the "love" she expects. Jake just pops up after a summer away, kind of scruffy, but gets a haircut. His trailer is hot. And he gets attention that Reese is kicking and screaming to get.

Ms. W. this is karma calling.

green eyed monster said...

Still obsessed with Reese Witherspoon I see. Why you so jealous?

Special K said...

Speaking of Green

Don't know if anyone got a chance to read the interview on Planet Green yet or not.

The one thing I like about Austin's answers are they are realistic about living more environmentally conscious. He says talks about his parents realistically, talks about what he does without the great big oversell. And he's not out to change everyone and everything at once. He talks about his own experiences, like his trailer on set, how he made changes there. Just small things to start that make a difference. He acknowledges that it might be hard for some to change, and has an approach any change is a step in the right direction.

I like him talking about his composting in the second part, and makes me think that he is making it a little game, in a way, to teach about composting so it is just becomes a every day thing in the family.

What I also noticed is what he doesn't talk about, Bonaroo. Sophia has brought this up over and over in several interviews, and Austin not one peep. Hmmmmm. And you know what else is interesting all those people who supposedly got pictures with them because they brought 15 cans/bottles to recycle, you haven't seen any of thos pictures posted anywhere. Hmmmm.

prairiegirl said...

Well, and at least this time Austin said "I compost..."

I read most of it. After awhile, alot of that stuff just gets too preachy to me and it turns me off.

What is so irritating about Sophia is how she toots her own horn all the time. "I do this." "I started that." "I got everyone to..." I, I, I, I. Me, me, me, me. Even on her Twitter page, her slogan on the right is something about "Help ME change the world." What the heck? Help ME change the world? I think Austin needs to donate BT1's stroller to her so she can haul that ego around in it. That thing has got to be getting heavy.

She made a great statement about the annoying way people throw things out of their car. Totally agreed. But then she had to go on about how she pulls off the road all the time to pick up trash. Oh, come on. Give me a break.

I'm just sayin' that the more you blow your own horn about how green you are, man, people are going to be watching you like a hawk, just waiting for that first wasteful thing you do.

Another good one she bragged about. Leaving the AC off for an extra hr in the mornings and being patient once you do turn it on for things to cool off. Yeah, I'm sure. And leaving the ac off all the time in her house, windows open letting the fresh air in. On & on & on & on. blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

lol. geez.

Special K said...

But did you see the difference in their answers PG? Sophia was all about herself and it was totally different perspective from where Austin is coming in all of this.

prairiegirl said...

Oh yeah, I agree with you. Austin's were small steps. Hers were big trumpeting announcements.

I just wish Austin would stop harping on older people. I take it he's not talked to many of our senior citizens.

Now there are some of our thriftiest, most conserving citizens. They reuse & save everything. They wash zip loc bags and baggies to reuse. They grew up in the Depression - there is no one, and I do mean no one who knows how to squeeze blood out of a turnip better than one of our beloved seniors.

He needs to give 'em a break. Our seniors are our one precious link to our past. They are not unreformable. They are not past learning. Nor are our seniors useless in our society. They are him in another 25 yrs. And those 25 yrs will be here before he knows it and then he'll be the one wondering why his younger generation sees him as a plastic bag and ready for the Recycle bin.

He seems to put down all older people and I don't get that. You usually hear that kind of talk out of a 21 year old, not a 30 yr old.

OH.MY.GOD. you believe that Jake has one or two rugrats (depending on which day of the week it is) stashed in the cupboard, and that he is secretly married to Austin, BUT you find it hard to believe he has a bike!!! Thanks for the giggles

just asking said...

"Do other actors change who they are according to what movie they are promoting? Damn I wonder if Jake really knows who he is."

I don't know what is the big deal. the guy happen to have a bike and so what? what is the relation with the movie he's promoting?

No, on second thought, not worth my last dry match.

Special did you get the feeling that TMZ edited out the part of the Jake meter story when the one guy (Charles?) said "we have to get behind him!" (re the rebellion against parking tickets). Like there were others chiming in? I did.

Special K said...

Snip Snip yeah it was a little jumpy. Don't know if was for time, if more people were saying stuff, saying stuff they couldn't air, or if they were saying stuff that didn't work for the punch line

Bizarre said...

What bizarre notions of gay men and gay couples :/ They buy matching cars and bikes as though they are twin boys, they share clothes like they're two college girls in a dorm, and they need to send secret signals to each other through random rings they happen to be wearing, even though they supposedly live together and would be in communication all the time.

destiny said...

Just dropping in to say hi, been busier than usual because I'm going on vacation on Friday.

Like Tom I think we'll get a new "image" for Jake for LAOD.

Jake looks good in the motorcycle outfit, but not a fan of bikes. Scared of them since I was a kid and my family drove by a horrible accident on the highway right after it happened.

Methodical Muser said...

What bizarre notions of gay men and gay couples

No one is implying that this kind of "connectiveness" is about being gay. It's about being a couple. Gay or straight. I have several married friends who buy the same make, model and year of car...just different colors. They trade them in at the same time too. When one got into motocycles, they bought another one so they could go on rides together. As a result, they both purchased black leather jackets, not matching, but at the same time. It's called sharing a life. Intimacy. And, yes I have been in romantic relationships where we have worn each other's jewelry close to our hearts on a necklace. I find people who do these kinds of things, straight or gay, travel a lot so they find different ways to keep the other person close to them. Why? Well because they miss each other and find comfort just having something of their's to take with them. Something private that they know they share. It's called being in love. With a large dose of romance tossed in. You should really try it sometime. I highly recommend it.

Special K said...

Well said M&M, couldn't put it any better.

Kerry said...

Good catch SK

LOL said...

Methinks M & M has hit the fanfic bottle too early today. I guess neither of the know how to text or email the other while apart, so they rely on wearing articles of clothing or whatnot on the offchance either will be papped and the other happens to see those pap pics. That's some suspension of disbelief right there! LOL

Now, who's writing fanfic? Methinks you hit the vodka bottle much too early this morning. Being papped so the other can see those photos is your insertion of nonsense. Obviously, you have no experience with romance, intimacy or love. Or, even basic comprehension of the written word.

Kerry said...

Well said MM. Is my spelling OK?

validation said...

I think you just proved Methodical Muser's point. There's no mention of poor spelling in his/her response. But, M & M does rightly comment about LOL's substandard reading comprehension. It's really funny when you only serve to support someone else's theory. Or, are you LOL, just hiding behind a different name? No need to deny it. It's blatantly transparent. By the way, my spelling is correct.

still not clear said...

I have several married friends who buy the same make, model and year of car...just different colors.

Haven't seen this phenomenon myself, but okay. Out of the millions of couples out there, I'm sure there are some who drive the same make of car. But do we know what kind of car Austin drives? Is there some evidence for the idea that they are driving the same car and the same motorcycle? Or is it just an "it would so romantic if they did it" idea that is being projected onto them?

where we have worn each other's jewelry close to our hearts on a necklace.

Oh, sure, that's not uncommon. But I'm talking about the rings on their fingers that get so much attention on this blog. For example, the August 12 three-year anniversary entry shows a picture of Austin with a large gold ring and Jake with a silver band. Are you saying that they are wearing each other's rings in those pictures? Is there some evidence of this? Couldn't they just be wearing rings that they own and like?

Kerry said...

Good catch, validation. Hooray for your spelling

validation said...

Thank you. It's called a dictionary.

Maybe you could send it to SK? *wink*

I'll just leave this here said...

Now that openly gay Neil Patrick Harris is having twins through a surrogate, I'm wondering: What about all the closeted gay actors out there? How many of them might have secret surrogate babies with their secret partners?
—Secret Lover, via the A.B. inbox

Well, there's Toothy Tile, right, Ted Casablanca? Apparently Toothy—that's the pseudonym for a particular Hollywood leading man who keeps his homosexuality very quiet—has a secret surrogate baby to go with his down-low boyfriend.

Adorable, right? Anyway, if you're wondering whether clandestine gay Hollywood is commissioning black-ops babies left and right, the answer is:

No.

Kathryn Kaycoff-Manos, president co-director of Agency For Surrogacy Solutions, Inc. in Los Angeles, says that pretty much never happens with her. Gay couples have increasingly turned to surrogates for starting their own families, and maybe there are a few who aren't quite all the way out.

But in Hollywood, not so much. Casablanca says that isn't surprising.

"Most are much more interested in covering up their homosexuality, not procreating," Ted tells me in a rare cameo appearance in this column. "Most gay couples don't make it long enough to even want to do this. That's why what Neil Patrick Harris is doing is a watershed moment."

Want some additional details on what might be going down in the Neil Patrick Harris home nursery? Sure you do!

Officially, Harris and his partner aren't saying which of them is the biological father of their yet-to-be-born twins. However, according to Kaycoff-Manos, there's a good chance the answer isn't an either-or.

Instead, Kaycoff-Manos tells me, it's pretty common for gay male couples to each fertilize some eggs, and then, if more than one takes, implant one or some of each. In other words, don't be surprised if one of the twins turns out to be a mini-NPH, and the other a mini-NPH-partner. (The twins are a boy and a girl, so we know they're fraternal, as in, they did not result from a single fertilized egg that split.)

Lastly, Kaycoff-Manos tells me, it's typical, in these types of situations, for the couple to know who the surrogate is, but not the egg donor.

"We haven't had any of our high-profile clients ask for a totally anonymous surrogate," she says.

So, when the threesome agrees to appear on the cover of People, along with the twins they made, don't be surprised.

Do In-the-Closet Gay Celebs Have Secret Babies?

ted said...

Dear Ted:
Please, please, please be November already! Have you seen the new trailer for Love and Other Drugs with our hottest Jake G.? Hopefully, his ex will stay calm and would not meddle in the promotional tour. What do you think: will the oh-so-clean Reese (note the sarcastic tone) will be able to stay out of it, and let Jake promote his career in peace? And oh aren't your panties going poof for that sexy scene on the kitchen floor? My panties went poof!
—Rita

Dear Poof-Proof:
Ew, Rita, you gotta stop with the panty poofing; I'm totally gagging over here! But, that said—or barfed, really—I love, love, love the looks of Jakey-poo's next flick (especially from the newest trailer). So much more his style than Prince of Persia, no? Humor, drama and a whole lot of adorableness on Jake's part? Reese seems to have her hands full with a new flick of her own and her main man, so we'll see. Wouldn't put anything past her.
