    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.

    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.
