VATICAN CITY (AP) — Biker culture came to the Vatican on Sunday as Pope Francis blessed thousands of Harley-Davidsons and their riders celebrating the manufacturer's 110th anniversary with a loud parade and plenty of leather.
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Biker culture has come to the Vatican.
Filed under: EV/Plug-in, On Two Wheels, USA The crack of a rifle breaks the silence of the humid night. The four-strong, black-swathed team quickly mount their motorcycles and move off in the darkness toward the sound at breakneck speed. Invisible, almost silent, they quickly close the distance to the enemy. The element of surprise is on their side and justice is about to be meted out. While this scenario might sound like something from the movies, it is now quite plausible. At least the quiet, fast motorcycling in the dark part, anyway. You see, working with the US Special Operations Forces, Zero Motorcycles has put together a machine that can provide super-stealthy mobility to forces in the field. Based on its MX model, the Zero MMX has keyless operation, a military spec dash, switchable headlight and is pre-wired for infrared systems fore and aft. It's also able to ford through a meter (39.37 inches) of water and has a safety override and reserve power capabilities to help its rider get out of sticky situations. (Ok, we're not actually sure what safety override does, but it certainly sounds cool.) Like the MX, the military model comes with battery pack swapping capability and all the power (54 horsepower, 68 lb-feet of torque) one is ever likely to need. It even retains its app-friendliness, allowing performance sculpting via blue tooth.

Here at OKMagazine.com, we love nothing more than hanging out with amazing up-and-coming stars who are not only talented, but also super nice and cool and fun. And that's why MKTO, the R&B/pop duo who met on the set of the now defunct Nickelodeon show, Gigantic, are basically our new best friends. Here's them hangin' at our office!
And when they stopped by the OK! HQ last week, we asked the guys a few fun q's about everything from the first CD they ever bought (one of the guys is a closest boy band fan!) to the weirdest things about them. So check out the adorable answers Tony and Malcolm gave us below, but first take a listen to their new song with Simple Plan, "Summer Paradise," which is trending all over Twitter and is baaaasically the anthem of summer 2013. Go!
OK!: Who was your celebrity crush when you were a teenager?
Tony Oller: Topanga From Boy Meets World. She was definitely very sexy growing up.
Malcom Kelley: Gabrielle Union was one of mine. OK! Exclusive: Track Listing and Album Art for Emblem3's Nothing to Lose OK!: What is your worst nightmare? What is the worst thing that could possibly happen to you? MK: I guess the world ending. That’s scary to me.
TO: I’d say just having a really long, delayed flight.
MK: That’s the worst nightmare?
TO: Not an airport person. OK!: What's your favorite thing to do together when you guys have downtime? TO: Play video games. We started getting into the SIMS again because you can download all the expansion packs off of your computer at home and it makes it awesome if you’re lazy. So yeah, I’ve been into the Sims lately. OK! Exclusive: Win a Signed Copy of Big Time Rush's New Album! OK!: What is a talent you wish you had? TO: I wish I was badass BMX…motorcycles…MOTOCROSS!
MK: I’m mad I didn’t get into surfing. I was just scared of the water and sharks but it would’ve been cool to be on the wave just riding in the middle. OK!: What food would you eat every day if you could? TO: Oh my God. Shrimp, fish tacos. They’re not that bad for you, but…
MK: Benihana everyday. Texas Best BBQ. OK!: What is the first album you ever bought? MK: I think it was a Lil Bow Wow CD.
TO: Mine was probably BSB Millennium…I had that on tape though.
MK: I have the Michael Jackson Greatest Videos on VHS! OK! Who is the most embarrassing artist on your ipod? TO: Just one? I don’t know if it’s embarrassing, but I have a lot of girl Christian music.
MK: Beyonce has a couple of dope songs. OK!: Beyonce's not embarrassing! TO: Well yeah, but imagine a guy jamming out to "Single Ladies"… OK!: Are there celebrities that follow you on Twitter that you were really excited about? MK: Nick Lachey is cool…doesn’t he follow us? He’s cool. We’ve met him a couple times. OK!: Do you have any weird quirks that maybe your fans don't know about yet?
TO: I’m a pretty big clean freak and organized freak lately. I wasn’t always like that but definitely have been lately.
MK: I freeze my grapes. They’re so good. Photos: On-Set of Katy Perry's New Video! MKTO's debut EP is set to release later this year and you can follow them on Instagram HERE for more adorable pics like the ones above! What do you think of MKTO?
