Many of us know Keanu Reeves as star of the Matrix series, but how many of us actually know that he loves speed and owns a motorcycle company! Yes, you heard that right; Keanu Reeves along with his long-time friend, Gard Hollinger who previously owned the company, LA County Chop Rods, have together founded the Arch Motorcycle Company to design and build the motorcycle of Reeves’s dreams.
Talking about his love for motorcycles the actor reveals that his first motorcycle was a Kawasaki 600 Enduro, followed by the beginning of his Norton affair and the first of many he’d own over the years includingSuzukis, BMWs, Kawasakis, a 1984 Harley Shovelhead and a Moto Guzzi. Reeves further adds that countless miles on all those bikes led him for the search of an elusive and complete riding experience. And for Reeves the search for that experience led naturally to a desire to modify bikes, and with one such particular project he met Gard Hollinger, a revered designer in the motorcycle world.
