When it comes to their passions, most celebrities tend to go all out.
For some, it may involve fashion, art, music or whatever it is they like and enjoys the most.
Moreover, some celebrities were able to maintain expensive collections of any kind, because most of them certainly do have the fortunes to do so just like the motorcycle enthusiast, Jericho Rosales’ favorite mode of transport and also part of his collections, motorbikes.
The well-known movie and screen actor, celebrity endorser and entrepreneur beams with pride when it comes to his motorcycle collection.
“Kung sa kuwadra kumbaga, I have a scooter, I have a dirt bike, I have my Scrambler and a Cruiser. I also wanna get a track bike which is a sports bike because I am into that also.”
When he was asked to choose between cars or motorbikes, the actor revealed in a previous Shell bike fair that he actually spends more time with his motorbike than his car.
According to Jericho, “at the moment, I am more into bikes than cars.”
In addition, Jericho’s motorcycle group members include his friends, Drew Arellano, Paolo Abrera, and Ryan Agoncillo, they call their group The Brat Pack.
He said, “We use our Scramblers, but we also go to the track, so we also use street or sports bikes, and we do adventure trips.”
“So river crossing, trails, and dirt or flat track events like dirt racing.”
As for his dream bike, Jericho said that he wants it to be hand-built and customized, “I am working towards that. Customization is a long process, especially sa akin, I like handmade stuff.
“I am not a big fan of bought-on products, okay ako doon pero mas gusto ko for my dream bike, it’s all hand-built, it’s made for me.”
According to the actor what comes to his mind for his dream bike, is a 1970’s classic, a Paul Smart Ducati. “May belly na sexy, really old school, and it’s a street bike,” Jericho described it that way.
Talking about his cars, he and his wife agreed to just keep a few cars.
“I drive a truck for my bike and going to work and we have a van at home for picking up people from the airport and going to the beach and surfing and going to shoots.”
“We have a small SUV just for personal stuff and I have my 1987 BMW na 5-series which I am restoring also.”
When asked if he already has all his dream car, the actor said that he doesn’t like the name Hellcat. He then added that it’s difficult to use cars in Manila because of the traffic.
“I have a few dream cars: a Hellcat Challenger kasi I like the look ng muscle car.”
“Traffic kasi palaga so parang hirap pag car. Pero pag natanggap ko na, tititigan ko lang siya sa garahe.”
He also shared that he used to collect Mustang before.
“I used to have a ’65 and a ’67, but I let them go kasi ang hirap mag-restore ng ganoon. Also the Ford GT, the Cobra.”
Jericho also wants, “another Mini Cooper, yung John Cooper Works na old school, I think that would be more practical.”
When it comes to their passion, celebrities that stay true on what they love the most are truly admirable.
