The young Captain Kirk rode a futuristic motorcycle in last year’s “Star Trek” movie. Now, the actor who portrayed the original Captain Kirk is donating his own motorcycle to charity.
According to the USA Today’s Drive On blog, actor William Shatner is donating his Harley-Davidson for an auction to be held June 27th at Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas. The auction benefits the Roddenberry Foundation: an organization that supports education, children, and environment.
Shatner has been a motorcycle fan since high school, when he “borrowed” a neighbor’s motorcycle for rides. He tells the story in a video featured on YouTube.
