‘I love the feeling of freedom’: David Beckham opens up about his beloved motorcycle adventures… as Victoria dines in LA with Brooklyn and Nicola
He’s long been known for his love of motorbike adventures, having previously travelled around Brazil and its Amazonian jungles riding classic Triumph bikes.
On Wednesday, the 47-year-old former footballer opened up about his decision to take time away and travel, explaining that he ‘loves the feeling of freedom’ and spending time with his friends in new surroundings.
The husband of Victoria Beckham posted a video to his Instagram account – that also served to promote his own line of fragrances – where he was interviewed while taking a break from his most recent adventure.

Asked why he loves riding so much, Beckham replies: ‘Freedom. Clear your head, it’s all you have to think about.
‘You’re out in the open. Especially when you’re in the US and you’re riding through the canyons. Different temperatures you have different smells. Being with friends, you know, even when you break down, you don’t care.
He continued: ‘Our last ride, we broke down and we were literally in a trailer park for seven hours. And the one guy that was there, had the part that we needed, or he could get the part in a few hours.’

‘So we just sat with this guy, we didn’t know him. We had lunch, we waited for the part to arrive, then we moved on,’ he explained.
The post included the hashtags #GoExplore and #DavidBeckhamFragrances.
It was not immediately clear when or where the video had been filmed, but last week the sports star and his wife Victoria, 47, were seen in the UK as they took part in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, hosting a special lunch for the occasion.
During the event, which honoured MBE recipients, the couple gave some inside advice on meeting Royalty.

With mother-of-four Victoria, who received the award in 2017, telling one pregnant guest: ‘Ask for a seat near the bathroom’.
David looked dapper in a grey suit, while Victoria cut a chic figure in a cream midi dress as their swanky event was broadcast on BBC One as part of Sunday’s coverage of the Platinum Pageant.
His fashion designer wife’s advice must be rubbing off as David, who was made an OBE in 2003, gave tips to the ladies in the group.
He said: ‘Don’t wear too high heels as that couple of steps back is challenging’. Before joking: ‘Not that obviously I wore heels receiving mine’.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Victoria was seen heading for dinner in Beverly Hills with her son Brooklyn and his wife Nicola Peltz.

Speaking to pregnant Becca Dean MBE, who was honoured by Her Majesty for work in disadvantaged communities Victoria said: ‘A good tip would be to certainly to ask for a seat near the bathroom if you’re about to have a baby because you never know what might happen’
