Aaaaeeeyyy, What Happened to Fonzie's Knucklehead?

Fonzie may have been best know for riding a silver Triumph, but that's not the only motorcycle he rode on the show. He actually started out with a '47 Harley Knucklehead Bobber.

Or ride a motorcycle?

"As a guest on "The New Paul O'Grady Show" (2004) (Nov. 18, 2009), Winkler confessed that he could not ride a motorcycle"

So what he's an actor. They fake things for a living. John Wayne went to USC and was a gentleman who enjoyed the finer things in life. He was only a cowboy on screen.

I don't like knuckles anyway and would have preferred the Triumph myself.

I have heard several times in interviews with people that worked with John Wayne that he hated horses.
