Ann-Margret’s sex kitten screen persona saw her riding on the back of several motorcycles during her film career, but the Bye Bye Birdie actress has been an avid motorcyclist since her youth. Her uncle instilled a love of bikes in her at an early age. She also fell hard for motorcycles after watching The Wild One. Throughout the 1960s, she was the Triumph cover girl. “I have always loved speed. You know the feeling that you have in a convertible, with the elements and everything, the little bit of danger, the speed,” she told Larry King in an interview. Margret was still riding a bike when interviewed in 2000.
