    Taken from the episode guides here:

    Trivia: The motorcycle House takes for a test drive is an Aprilia 1000cc RSV Mille. The bike House owns in later episodes is a Honda CBR1000RR in Repsol colors.

    I am a Ninja rider for 7 years now, before that it was dirt bikes.  I freaked out when I saw the first episode with the Repsol bike in it.  My walls are only covered with Nicky Hayden posters, autographed, as well as Tommy Hayden.  I am such a huge fan.  The first House episode I saw I noticed he rode a sport bike ( hate it when they are called crotch rockets!) up to his apartment, but it was dark and I didn't notice the Repsol bike.  Does he just like the bike or is he a Hayden fan?  Hayden #69 is very close to winning the MotoGP championship this year it is very exciting.  Wondering how I got so lucky to have my favorite bike ( I have a diecast of it on my desk at work) on my favorite show.  Awesome!  Would really like some more details on how the choice of bikes came about and if Laurie is a Hayden fan?

    Ha! I like him more and more... I know people that call road bike racing girly. I wouldn't call +320km/h on a bike girly.

    I've been a student for the last 5 years - I'm almost too poor to run my car let alone a bike too.
    Where'd you hear that? An interview?

    The calling of F1 girly?? He was nabbed by ITV for a quick interview while on the pit lane at Indianapolis. There is a link for it at hughlaurie.net. Go to News and then scroll down to July 10th.
