George Clooney Auctioning Off Harley-Davidson And Giving Up Motorcycle Riding

The actor is raising money for a veterans charity called Homes for Our Troops.

George Clooney has reached the end of the road, at least when it comes to motorcycle riding, his publicist confirmed Tuesday.

The actor, who is a well-known motorcycle enthusiast, has put one of his Harley-Davidson bikes up for auction to benefit Homes for Our Troops, which builds and donates specially adapted homes for veterans injured after 9/11. The 2017 Dresser Touring Ultra Limited FLHTK Harley-Davidson that Clooney is selling has 25 miles on the odometer, according to the eBay listing.

The listing says Clooney’s “wife Amal has told him he’s off two wheels for good.” His publicist, Stan Rosenfield, said the actor had decided for himself to give up motorcycles but had not specified why he had come to that conclusion.

Clooney, 57, was briefly hospitalized in July after his scooter was hit by a car on the Italian island of Sardinia. He was also in a motorcycle accident in Weehawken, New Jersey, in 2007, which resulted in his then-girlfriend, Sarah Larson, injuring her leg.
