Indian captain MS Dhoni is an avid lover of motor bikes. He possesses around 22 bikes including a Harley-Davidson, which he bought soon after the victory of World Cup Twenty20.

Dhoni was quoted by cartradeindia.com as saying, “I love bikes, and I am a speed freak.”

The Indian captain rues the fact that he hardly gets time to ride bikes due to tight international cricket calendar.

He said, “I ride mostly in Ranchi and at times in Mumbai too. I have 22 bikes now and plan to have more of them. But I have hardly been able to ride it in the last few months because of cricket.”

It is believed that the star cricketer loves to ride his Yamaha RD 350 and Royal Enfield Machismo whenever he gets time.
