Fitness Guru Jillian Michaels Flexes Muscle

Jillian Michaels Custom V-Rod
Here's a peek at Jillian Michaels' hot new Harley-Davidson V-Rod Muscle.
Fitness guru Jillian Michaels, an avid motorcyclist and advocate for women riders, just got some hot new wheels. The star of NBC’s Biggest Loser and Losing it with Jillian just received a customized Harley-Davidson V-Rod Muscle. With her penchant for fitness, a motorcycle called the Muscle is apropos, because Michaels is ripped. And it’s a good thing, too, because the Muscle isn’t a beginner’s bike. On the contrary, it’s Harley-Davidson’s full-on high-performance drag bike with a 1250cc Revolution engine built in conjunction with a little company called Porsche.

Michaels’ Harley-Davidson Muscle gets the customization treatment courtesy of the Willie G. Davidson Styling Studio. The blacked-out Muscle features polished engine cases with orange hightlights, a custom seat and rear fender, an aftermarket exhaust, a custom radiator shroud and Reactor wheels.

At the beginning of 2010, Michaels became a spokesperson for The Motor Company’s National Garage Party Month. H-D’s Garage Parties encourage women to learn to ride for themselves in a non-intimidating environment. During the promotion, one lucky woman and three of her friends won an opportunity to take Harley-Davidson’s Rider’s Edge New Rider Course, spa treatments and a motivational talk with Michaels about living a healthier life.

“Learning to ride a motorcycle was an empowering experience for me, so I want to share that with other women,” Michaels said in the H-D press release.

Michaels has used her fame and love of motorcycles for philanthropic efforts as well when she auctioned off her custom Yamaha FZ1 last year for the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund after the disastrous Haitian earthquake.

Yeah...because riding a crotch rocket & doing wheelies in traffic is so grown up.....& if they are such a bad bike, why does every bike company try to make a cruiser copy of Harleys???

Such macho crap, HDs. Flippin' tanks on two wheels. When are people ever going to grow up? Being the host of the Biggest Loser, don't you think she'd appreciate the value of riding a bike that weighs 300 lbs less and goes 50% faster? It must bring out the man in her.
