Pedal to the metal!
Before becoming a devoted and loving husband and father, Prince William loved riding motorbikes. But ever since becoming a father to Prince George, the prince put his hobby on the "back-burner" because it "fills his wife with horror."
But the prince defied his wife Kate Middleton's wishes on Tuesday when he took a spin on a motorcycle while visiting the Triumph factory. The Duke of Cambridge, 35, looked handsome and ready to go in head-to-toe leather as he test drove the latest Triumph Tiger 1200. And to appease his wife, William made sure to practice safety by wearing a helmet as he rode.
While speaking to World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea in 2016, the future king revealed how he'd given up his beloved hobby.
"We talked about his bikes and the fact that he has put it on the back-burner a little bit because of his children now," Rea said.

William once owned a Ducati motorbike, which he was last seen riding the night before his 2011 wedding. He also shared this pastime with his younger brother Prince Harry. In 2008, Harry and William took part in a motorcycle rally across Africa to raise money for various philanthropic organizations.
While it sounds like Wills has given up on his motorbiking dreams, he has a lot on his plate right now -- including the arrival of baby No. 3 -- to keep him plenty busy.
