Brad Pitt was spotted enjoying a leisurely ride on his motorcycle this weekend before the actor took a bit of a spill off his bike … in full view of the ever-watchful paparazzi. Apparently, Brad was trying to thread his way thru traffic on his bike (which is legal in the State of California) and he accidentally clipped a side mirror on a car and took his tumble. Here is a pic of Brad lookin’ all happy on his bike before his little and embarrassing fall:
This is the moment Brad Pitt was thrown off his custom motorbike seconds before confronting a paparazzo in downtown Los Angeles. Pitt was weaving through busy traffic when the eager photographer drove his Toyota Camry too close to the star. The actor lost his balance while swerving to avoid the car and clipped the wing mirror of a parked vehicle. Thankfully, the film star, who is used to daring stunts, was unharmed. One thing is certain, though – Brad ended up on the floor while his bike ended up on the back of a truck, too mangled to ride home. But onlookers said the Inglourious Basterds and Ocean’s Thirteen actor, who was wearing a gold crash helmet, simply picked himself up and pulled his damaged bike to the side of the road. He swapped insurance details with the driver whose car he clipped before trying to start his bike again – and discovering it was in no fit state for the journey back to the ranch he shares with Angelina Jolie and their six children. The 46-year-old had to wait in a building by the side of the road for his assistant to arrive with the pick-up truck.
Aww … it sucks that Brad‘s bike was damaged but at least he wasn’t hurt. After the jump, check out photos of Brad‘s spill …
HMMM … these pics sure don’t look like his bike was really damaged so badly … but I doubt Brad would have his new toy hauled away if he could just jump on it and take off. I really wish it weren’t legal for motorcyclists to weave thru traffic like this … I’m always nervous whenever a motorcycle speeds past me between lanes of traffic. Be more careful, Braddy … you’ve got way to many kids to take care of to be taking risks like this.
