We’ve already done that post – do Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) and Marvel God Chris Hemsworth really look alike? If you missed it – click on it at the bottom of this page. Seriously. You know you want to. Anyway, considering the fact that they have a slight resemblance to one another, and the response we received from all of you great SOA Fanatics on that one, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do up a photo gallery of the many times Chris Hemsworth was fantastically sexy.
Bruce Heilman is a 90 year old man and former Marine on a mission. He’s a Harley enthusiast and rider who took his Harley Davidson cross-country from California to Washington D.C. to spread a seriously important message – to remember and honor the lives lost in the Pearl Harbor attacks. He embarked on the 6,000 mile trip – which he departed from this past May – and landed in Washington D.C. just in time for Memorial Day.
Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) has been beefing up his already impressive resume since the much loved motorcycle drama ended in 2014, and he’s not stopping anytime soon. News just broke that he will now be starring alongside actress Lea Seydoux in what’s being called a “unique love story.” The movie, whose title has yet to be announced, comes from director Drake Doremus; who is best known for his most popular movies – Like Crazy and The Equals.

Sons of Anarchy – Season 5, Episode 12: “Darthy”
So many people have asked us if actor Channing Tatum has ever starred on Sons of Anarchy. No joke. And while he didn’t (awwwe), we assume the question typically arises because physically, he meets the sexy requirements that men like Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) and Tommy Flanagan (Filip “Chibs” Telford) do. But, the fact that Channing Tatum wasn’t on Sons of Anarchy doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy looking at him, right?
Holy crap. That’s all we have to say about how technology is changing the way we look at and ride our motorcycles. Harley Davidson, by our definition, is a 2-wheeled motorcycle, of the ultimate standard, that gets our blood pumping and the wind blowing through our hair. But, what if we told you that there was a company that put their best teams together to try and change that standard definition all together?

Get ready for it, SOA Fanatics, because this is the SOA Fanatic Friday Week In Review!
How has Sofia Karlberg not been discovered yet? She should be as famous as Ed Sheeran at this point, considering she took “Make It Rain” and made the most badass cover from it that we’ve ever heard! To say her voice is incredible is a vast, vast understatement. Her voice reaches deep down into your soul and haunts every fiber of your being. Seriously, this cover will give you chills!
As we all know, Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy) is UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor’s biggest fan – which leads us to wanting to get to know more about him. It also leads us to realize, that much like Charlie, Conor is one super delicious specimen of man! Holy hell, is he one delicious looking guy! That’s why today, we’re dishing up some of the spiciest photos of him that we can find!
Wow, this is guaranteed to be the funniest video we’ll share all week! This blind man goes into a Harley shop, sunglasses, white cane, and wife in tow, looking for his new motorcycle. He walks through the shop, with the shopkeep in total disbelief, carefully inspecting each and every bike to meticulously choose which one will be his shiny, new companion.
Just when you thought Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) couldn’t get any hotter, we find out that he’s been a life-long biker. The 39 year old actor first hopped on a bike at the young age of 15, and he’s been hooked to the biker lifestyle ever since. We’ve found a video of him, titled “Invite The Unexpected”, which was produced by Bryan Rowland, and in it, Ryan confesses all of the reasons why he loves to be a biker.

Yes, you read that right. This week we get to meet a biker pig – a pig named Baby Banks who loves to go for rides on the motorcycle. Not only is Baby Banks a badass biker pig, she’s the Spokespig for “The Food Train”, an amazing organization that supports other piggies in that live in shelters. She’s also a lifetime member & registered pet pig of the AMPA (American Mini Pig Association). We think this pig has done more in her short lifespan than we have in our years so far – and we *love* it!
Every day in America, 22 American Veterans take their own life. Suicide rates among American Veterans are at an all time high – many Veterans suffer PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) following their roles as combat soldiers in times of deployment and war. Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) is doing his part to reduce those numbers and save the lives of Veterans all across the nation, by participating daily in the #22kill/#22pushup challenge.

Plays through the final scene of the episode.
From the personal depths of new motorcyclist Stacy L. Bettison comes the incredible story of how and why she attended the Sturgis 2016 motorcycle rally solo. Typically, we don’t share posts word for word by someone else, but today we’re breaking that rule to share Stacy’s story with you, because it is just something you need to see. She originally shared this story with the Star Tribune, in Minnesota, and we’re hoping that through us, this story reaches farther and wider than just in Minnesota. Read the incredible story below.
Every year, the Sturgis Annual Motorcycle Rally does one thing, that they hope will better the lives for Veterans all across the country. Indian Motorcycles hosts a Veterans charity ride each and every year – wounded and amputee Veterans are hand selected to participate in and experience the ride at Sturgis, as well as the opportunity to heal with motorcycle therapy. Motorcycle therapy enables disabled Veterans to get out on the open road, to feel the wind in their face and empty their minds of whatever may be troubling them.
Attendance was down for the 76th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which ran from August 8-14, 2016 in Sturgis, South Dakota, but that didn’t stop people from flocking to the wildly popular event for a week of fun, motorcycles, and food. Set in the Black Hills region of South Dakota, this year’s rally had a more laid back feel to it, especially compared to that of last year’s 75th anniversary event.

As motorcycle enthusiasts, even we have to ask questions and take advice on what products and brands will serve us best in our needs as riders and motorcycle owners. How do you know which Harley Davidson is the right Harley Davidson for you? Every motorcycle will handle different, ride different, and respond differently to each and every individual rider, and it is so important to know what will make your ride the most efficient and comfortable for you.
We all remember how Marilyn Manson portrayed Sons of Anarchy’s Ron Tully – the final season’s white supremacist fallen for Juice (Ortiz, Theo Rossi) – and now he’s taking his acting chops over to WGN America’s Salem. Manson will recur in the role as Thomas Dinley, Salem’s antagonistic and unpleasant barber/surgeon. Today we have the exclusive trailer and first look of Manson as Thomas Dinley.
We’re not strangers to how television shows work, being the Sons of Anarchy fans that we are, and with that comes the knowledge of how actresses and actors may handle the stresses of being associated with a major television series for an extended period of time. That holds true for Criminal Minds actor Thomas Gibson, who was just fired from the CBS Network drama after an on-set altercation that he now cannot take back.

We got the news a couple of months ago, that Sons of Anarchy Executive Producer Kurt Sutter was unleashing a new Sons of Anarchy Redwood Original series – that tells the story of a 18 year old Jackson “Jax” Teller (Charlie Hunnam). Jax was just a prospect in SAMCRO, his late father’s Motorcycle Club. It also features many of the characters we know love from the series – Opie (Winston, Ryan Hurst), Gemma (Teller-Morrow, Katey Sagal), Tig (Trager, Kim Coates), and even Chibs (Telford, Tommy Flanagan)!
If you followed the news last week, you’ll know that Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) had quite a bit to say about athlete David Beckham – in fact, he was practically gushing about David after getting the chance to work with him in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur. Charlie had said that “‘I thought [David] Beckham was a secret but I guess everyone’s talking about it now. Unless you just are tricking me and I’m the one that’s putting the secret out.“…which is totally a possibility, but I think we are gushing for a totally different reason.
If you’ve followed Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) as avid as we know you all have, then you already know that he co-starred with British heart-throb Tom Hiddleston in Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak just this past October. It’s ok to admit that you just had to see the movie because it had two of the sexiest men in Hollywood in it, we’re not judging. We’ve loved Tom for as long as we’ve loved Charlie, which is totally why we have to talk about Tom’s new romantic interest – singer Taylor Swift.
Happy Friday, SOA Fanatics! It has been another interesting couple of weeks around here, and we’d like to thank you for sticking by our side as we bring you the latest and greatest that Sons of Anarchy has to offer.

The Sons of Anarchy cast consisted of a diverse group of people; some of the cast were young themselves with the series started and just entering into television, while others were seasoned actors and actresses with decades of experience behind them. That is part of what we’ve always loved so much about the series – how Executive Producer Kurt Sutter could take a group of incredibly different people, and turn them into a family.

A smooth ride is one of the most important parts of having a motorcycle, and there’s no better way to ensure smooth roads ahead than to maintain the condition of your motorcycle’s wheel bearings. The wheel bearings are an integral part of what keeps your motorcycle in top shape, which is why today, we’re sharing a how to on checking those pesky little wheel bearings.
Kim Coates, best known to us for his portrayal as Alexander “Tig” Trager in Sons of Anarchy is back in the movie mindset again, this time with an IFC film called “The Land”. The movie was set and shot in Cleveland, OH and was written and directed by a native Clevelander, Steven Caple Jr. It also features two Cleveland musicians – Machine Gun Kelly and Ezzy – and they both have featured roles and have contributed to the fantastic soundtrack.
This past weekend, the scariest thing ever happened in a suburb of Chicago, and it’s seriously what nightmares are made of for motorcyclists. On a neighborhood road, it was the classic case of a motorcycle group versus a pick up truck, and the footage will make you squirm. The driver of the pick up showed no care whatsoever to the safety of the motorcyclists, and within the video, that is more than obvious.
Theo Rossi (Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz, Sons of Anarchy) stepped out at San Diego’s Comic Con 2016 with Luke Cage co-star Mike Colter to give the staff of Crave an exclusive interview about the newly coveted TV Series, set to premiere on September 30 of this year. We may know Theo best for his role in Sons of Anarchy, but Mike is best known for his previous work in the Marvel Universe with Jessica Jones.
Kiara Rodriguez is one high school student that will never, ever forget her Prom night last May- and it’s not because she had the most beautiful dress or the most handsome date – it’s because one motorcycle club out of Connecticut made it possible for her dad to see her off to Prom. Tito Rodriguez, Kiara’s dad, suffered a major motorcycle crash just two weeks before her Prom night, and was in the hospital, unable to see her go to prom. That is, until Law Dogs Motorcycle Club stepped in.
Mary was a legendary American sitcom, about actress Mary Tyler Moore, that aired on CBS Networks from 1985-1986, and starred Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller-Morrow, Sons of Anarchy) as Mary Tyler Moore’s feisty co-worker, Jo Tucker. It was Katey’s first major acting gig, and allowed for her to perform as the actress and singer we know and love her as today. She was spotted by acting agents for the role in 1985, while she was performing on stage in a musical.
It is summer, and summer is definitely the season for travel. Admit it, you’ve always wanted to jump on the Harley and just go wherever the road may lead you, and that idea is very possible, especially with the 5 tips we’re about to give you to create the ultimate motorcycle road trip. It’ll be the time of your life, if you do it right.
If you follow Danny Trejo (Romeo Parada, Sons of Anarchy) on Facebook, you tend to get a lot of crazy stuff shared with you, which is totally not a complaint. Danny is a legendary man and actor, and more recently he’s shared on his Facebook page that he’s crowdfunding for a new movie venture of his, named Social Security. The funny part is, that Danny didn’t know what crowdfunding was until he decided to embark on this new film adventure.

This has got the be the most badass 6 year old out there. Shared by YouTuber Jacob Hughes, the video we have in store for you today will have you wishing all 6 year olds are as cool as Jacob’s son. Jacob takes his little man out for a ride on the Harley; the sun is shining and they’ve got the open road all to themselves. It’s the perfect day for a father-son ride out on the motorcycle.
Do you remember the scene where we first encountered Happy Lowman (David Labrava), and realized just how dangerous Marcus Alvarez (Emilio Rivera) really was? It was way back in Season 1, in Hell Followed, which was the 9th episode of the season. We didn’t know Alvarez very well at that point; only that he was the rival Mayans MC President and that he and SAMCRO President Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman) didn’t exactly see eye to eye.
After watching Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow, Sons of Anarchy) star in the PayDay 2: The Biker Packs trailer, you’ll find yourself asking if that really was Clay. We aren’t kidding. Clay, was that you? And as an added bonus, the trailer for the newly coveted game also stars another familiar face from Sons of Anarchy – Andy McPhee, who portrayed SAMBEL President Keith McGee.

This past weekend was so full of news, the biggest being what’s coming up for Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy) and his role in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming movie, King Arthur. We finally got to see the coveted official first trailer for the movie, which we shared with you at the beginning of the week (see related article link below), and now we get to see all the exclusives surrounding the movie, including all of the interviews with all of the juicy details.
In this day and age, it’s fairly obvious to see that the media representation of police officers is sad, at best. We hear all sorts of horrible stories in regards to police officers and what happens in public while they’re on duty, and sometimes we just need the solid reminder that police officers are people too, who get up in the morning, put their uniforms on, and go to work just like the rest of us. That message was recently sent loud and clear when 575 motorcycles took off in Baton Rouge, LA to honor police officers who have met the end of their watch.

In another jaw-dropping announcement at Comic Con 2016 in San Diego, CA, Sons of Anarchy alum Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) revealed that he will, in fact, not be reprising the role of Raleigh Beckett in the Pacific Rim sequel, Pacific Rim 2. He portrayed the robot-controlling hero in the original film, and looked oh, so sexy doing so.
Maggie Siff played Tara Knowles-Teller in the FX hit drama Sons of Anarchy for an entire 6 seasons, and without her the show definitely wouldn’t have been the same. We’re always talking about how the characters made us feel – what about them or their situations resonated within us, and how they changed our lives and our perspective. Rarely ever do we think about how the actresses and actors felt about their own characters, which is why today, we’re going to share a throwback interview with Maggie about Tara Knowles-Teller and what the character meant to her.

Sadly, you read that right. Take a moment to let it absorb….
According to Charlie Hunnam, who played Sons of Anarchy’s Jackson “Jax” Teller for 7 long years, his incredibly sexy 6-pack abs is soon to be a thing of the past. The 36 year old actor dropped some pretty big bombshells during 2016’s Comic Con in San Diego, CA and the biggest one is about how he plans on relaxing on his workout routine.
Not only did Ed Sheeran (Soundtrack, Sons of Anarchy) totally blow this Jessie J cover out of the water, it has an incredibly important message. “Who You Are” lyrically tells you to embrace who you are, to not lose the person you have spent so much time and energy creating. To not let other people convince you that you’re not good enough, or that you need to somehow change. It’s pretty spectacular.
