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.

Sons of Anarchy – Season 6, Episode 2: One One Six
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.
We’ve discovered a new type of motorcycle today – the one-wheeled motorcycle – and it’s proper name is the Ryno. With the Ryno, riders aren’t stuck cruising the motorcycle lane, or limited to valuable street space. Riders can take it anywhere – so Ryno Motors, the company who makes it, boasts – on the sidewalk, in the grass, or anywhere people can generally walk. It’s meant to be versatile, convenient, and lead the way for transitional vehicles.
This might end up being the coolest video we share with you SOA Fanatics all month long! We’ve managed to come across “Not So Easy – A Motorcycle Safety Film“; an old-school motorcycle safety video done up in 1973 by Evel Knievel and Peter Fonda, and while the tips may not apply to modern day motorcycles and their riders, it’s definitely an interesting piece of history to witness.

Sons of Anarchy Season 2, Episode 12: The Culling
For everyone who attended KoRn’s Return of the Dreads show in Irving, CA last night – we are eternally jealous of you. KoRn played at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre last night as a part of the Return of The Dreads Tour 2016, and special guest Tommy Flanagan (Filip “Chibs” Telford, Sons of Anarchy) took the stage to introduce the band. Tommy recently starred in KoRn’s newest music video “Rotting in Vain” (see below).
In what seems to be an ‘8 Simple Rules‘ reunion ploy on CBS’s part, Sons of Anarchy alum Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller-Morrow) has been cast to play Penny (Kaley Cuoco)’s mom on the hit sitcom, “The Big Bang Theory“. Katey played mom to Kaley for three years in the ABC sitcom “8 Simple Rules“, and is set to return to the familiar part this September. While they’re both portraying different characters this time around, it’s pretty sweet that Katey will once again be Kaley’s TV mom.
This is something we have been waiting very patiently for!! There’s seriously no better way to kick off the week, than with the official trailer for Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy)’s much anticipated movie, ‘King Arthur: Legend of The Sword”!!! We hope you’re having a super Monday so far, SOA Fanatics, because it’s about to get tons better!
Happy Friday, SOA Fanatics! It has been an interesting couple of weeks around here, and we’d like to thank you for sticking by our side week to week and we bring you the latest and greatest that Sons of Anarchy has to offer. If you’re new here, and would like to stay around for a while (we’d love to have you!), every Friday we get together to review everything we’ve discussed for the week, so get ready for it, because this is the SOA Fanatic Friday Week In Review!
If you haven’t yet seen this video tribute to Sons of Anarchy, you are in for something special today! “In Time”, created by YouTuber BayByFoot, shares the namesake of its song. And it’s a beautiful song, at that, done by Mark Collie. BayByFoot chose the best scenes from the show to boot, and managed to capture so much of the raw emotion from the show that we love.
I am fangirling SO hard right now! I am now less than 24 hours from going to see my first ever live KoRn show, and I’ve just discovered that KoRn had recruited Sons of Anarchy Tommy Flanagan (Filip “Chibs” Telford) to star in their newest music video “Rotting In Vain”, which was just released on July 19, 2016. This is one of those times where I really feel that the universe is on my side, and I am way too excited to be sharing this with all of you SOA Fanatics!
Ok , so not only did Ed Sheeran (Sons of Anarchy, Soundtrack) cover One Direction’s hit song “Little Things”, he also wrote the wildly popular tune. Ed is a man of extreme talent, and we so love him for not only performing “Make It Rain” in the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack, but for everything he ever does. He’s a talented writer, singer, and performer, and we’re ecstatic to be sharing some more of his work with you today!
To this day, we’re all still wishing that Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy) hadn’t declined the role of Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of E.L. James’ book series, 50 Shades of Grey. We love to fantasize about how Charlie would have taken control over Christian Grey, and his would-have-been partner, Anastasia Steele. And there is totally nothing wrong with that, at all.
As we all know, Kim Coates (Tig Trager, Sons of Anarchy) has had a love for motorcycles his entire life. But this past weekend was a milestone for the veteran biker – he made his first visit to Port Dover, Ontario on July 17th, 2016, a place where most motorcycle enthusiasts would be absolutely thrilled to go. Every Friday the 13th, the town holds a motorcycle rally – but that’s not why Kim visited. He had a much more special reason.
Ok, so while this one wasn’t included in the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack, we feel it deserves a notable mention. The White Buffalo is mostly responsible for the amazing sound in Sons of Anarchy, and this song totally should have been in the soundtrack, in our opinion. So get comfy, and read along with the lyrics posted below. It’s a great tune!
We’ve come across what may be our favorite video of the week. We’ve managed to stumble upon the Facebook page of artist Barry Jazz Finnegan – a man who has done several huge charcoal portraits by hand – of several celebrities, television characters, and other notable persons. He has a skill level that is parallel to none, and displays that skill in videos on his Facebook in a time-lapse of every portrait he does.
As people who spend a good part of our time on the internet, we can admit that we love win/fail compilations! I’m just as guilty, I spend too much time, on a logical level, watching the fail videos of Facebook. That’s why today, we’ve found a fail/win compilation of motorcycles and those who ride them, and we’re going to spend today having some good laughs!
If you’ve followed the news lately, you’ve seen the rumors. Reportedly, Sons of Anarchy anti-hero Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) is not going to make a return to the Sons of Anarchy prequel Mayans MC because he’s feuding with Executive Producer Kurt Sutter. That is, reportedly. It’s definitely not true, and today, we’re here to dispel the rumors once and for all.

Sons of Anarchy Season 7, Episode 13: Papa’s Goods
Mhhm who doesn’t love them some Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam)? That’s why today, we’re running a special piece, dedicated to several delicious GIF images of the amazingly hot badboy. We’ve said it already, and we’ll say it again; how can being bad look soooo good? It must be Charlie himself, because we have no other answers. So get the cold shower ready now, because we’re getting on rolling out those heavenly GIFs of Jax.
Just when we thought that motorcycles couldn’t get any cooler, we’ve come across video of a super cool motorcycle themed amusement park rollercoaster ride! Oh, to be a kid again. Seriously, who ever said that motorcycles were just for adults? Who wouldn’t want to ride a sweet bright green motorcycle? The kids in this video only prove that a motorcycle-esque rollercoaster is just about as much fun as you could ever have!
*SPOILER ALERT* – this post contains moderate to major spoilers through Season 6 of Sons of Anarchy. View at your own risk!*
The official trailer has finally been released for the new movie “Bleed For This” starring Sons of Anarchy’s Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller-Morrow)! “Bleed For This” is the awe-inspiring true story of one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, and Katey herself gets to portray Louside Pazenzia, the mom of the Providence, RI boxer, Vinny “The Pazmanian Devil” Pazienza (Miles Teller) – a man who rose quickly to stardom after clenching two world title boxing fights.
So, before yesterday, we didn’t know what Maron was. We didn’t know it was a show based off of a real man, Marc Maron, we didn’t know it aired on the IFC Network, and we didn’t know that Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow, Sons of Anarchy) played a hand in it at all. That is, until Ron posted a video on Facebook, announcing that his stint in the show was airing last night, on IFC, at 9:00PM.
What is life without humor? Dull and boring, am I right? That’s why today, we have five of the funniest motorcycle jokes to share with you, and by the end of this, if you’re not laughing, then well, we’ll just have to go hunting for more motorcycle jokes! Get whatever you need ready now – tissues, water, a place where your neighbors won’t look at you – and get ready to bust out laughing!
Any motorcycle owner knows that losing your motorcycle is the most devastating thing that could ever happen to you. A man and his bike are one in the same, and when a motorcycle goes missing, its rider loses a piece of himself along with it. This story we have for you today isn’t quite what you’d expect, and the ending is totally worth it all.

Sons of Anarchy Season 6, Episode 5: The Mad King
Did you know that Timothy V. Murphy (Galen O’Shay, Sons of Anarchy) rolled out some hilarious commercials for television provider DirecTV a few years back? He was so popular in those commercials, that fans dubbed him “The Russian Guy” and the “Miniature Giraffe Guy”. We’re so used to hearing him speak in his full Irish tongue, that we can’t picture him with a thick Russian accent, but oh, it’s happened.
The artists of the world rarely ever get proper credit where credit is due. Artistic ability is something that is incredibly rare, and when you come across an artist that harbors a skill that exceeds any and all expectations, that artist deserves an incredible amount of praise and recognition. We’re an especially lucky group, being Sons of Anarchy fans, because there are so many of us that deserve the kind of recognition we’re going to share today.
We’ve seen it hit the news more times than we care to admit – a dog lost its life because they were left in a hot car on a hot day for too long. Sadly, the news doesn’t just extend to dogs; as the temperatures climb, we’ve seen the same case scenario with babies and young children. Sons of Anarchy star Theo Rossi (Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz) has taken to twitter to remind everyone not to leave your dog in the car on a hot summer day.
The only thing we love more than Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy) in a white tee is Charlie in no tee at all! We’ve done one post for Charlie on a fine white tee Wednesday, and we’re super excited to be doing it again! Charlie seriously looks amazing in everything he wears (or doesn’t wear), and he’s absolutely our favorite son to share photos of!
You know when you find that one Sons of Anarchy tribute that just gives you chills? “Losing Your Memory” by YouTuber Rockateer4Eva is that video. The music is so perfect, and the voice overlays from the show are on-point. Sing along to it with the lyrics below, you’ll thank yourself if you do!
If you didn’t see this happen with your own two eyes, you wouldn’t believe it actually happened. Seriously, this is the kind of stuff that’ll give you nightmares. They say that you never know what is around every corner, but honestly you don’t even know what it straight ahead sometimes. For example, this motorcyclist, that was cruising along the roadway, when…..
If you’re anything like me, your obsession with Sons of Anarchy parallels your obsession with The Walking Dead. Both are amazing and twisty series, with incredible casts and characters, and I cannot get enough of either show. Today I’ve come across a sick tribute video – it’s a tribute to The Walking Dead’s Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), but it’s backed by The Lost Boy By Greg Holden; which was Opie (Winston, Ryan Hurst)’s wake song in Sons of Anarchy. The best of both worlds collide in this vid.

If you hadn’t known, Sons of Anarchy Executive Producer Kurt Sutter didn’t executive produce the series all on his own. He had some help from tenured producer Paris Barclay, who also served as an executive producer on the show from 2011-2014. This past week held a very special date, as June 30th was Paris’s birthday. The man who helped make Sons of Anarchy possible turned 60 years old last Thursday.
Sticking true to the theme of Independence Day, we’ve decided to seek out the most patriotic motorcycles we can find. To say we’re surprised or impressed is a vast understatement. We managed to find some of the most beautifully custom painted patriotic motorcycles in America, and we’re so excited to be sharing them with you on this July 4th! It’s truly amazing what motorcycle owners have done to make their bikes all-American.
In the true spirit of Independence Day – Happy July 4th SOA Fanatics! – we’ve found a super helpful video on how to paint your motorcycle with the American flag and eagle. It one of the most classic looks for a motorcycle, and we know you all love a custom paint job. CBGraphics is taking us through a tutorial today, on how to make your motorcycle all American!
51 years ago today, the legend that would be known to us as Sons of Anarchy’s Filip “Chibs” Telford was born. Tommy Flanagan entered the world on July 3, 1965 in Easterhouse, Glasgow (UK), to David and Elizabeth Flanagan, and was the third child out of five children in his family. He was raised in Glasgow before he began his lucrative acting career in his twenties.
Happy first Friday in July SOA Fanatics! If you’re new to our page, every Friday, we get together and go over everything we’ve done this week, just in case you missed any of our awesome Sons of Anarchy and motorcycle discussions. We covered so much this week, so pay attention – you’ll find everything we discussed right here on the SOA Fanatic Friday Week in Review!
This veteran biker, at the ripe young age of 85, may very well have better dance moves than you! Deloy, the veteran, not only has some pretty fantastic dance moves, but he has quite the infectious spirit and energy to boot. He’s been through a lot in all of his years, but he brings nothing but positivity and happiness everywhere he goes! Deloy has such a contagious personality, you’ll have to watch the video to believe it!
APWorks, a subsidiary of the Germany engineering company Airbus, has produced the world’s first 3-D printed bike, named The Light Rider. It’s an all electric bike, weighing out at a maximum of only 77 pounds, and is made from a custom aluminum metal fabrication called scalmalloy – a custom aluminum alloy powder that APWorks boasts “with almost the specific strength of titanium”.
This one is admittedly really close to my heart. It happened in my hometown; a drunk driver crashed into a motorcyclist, killing him instantly. William Nash JR was travelling on Susquehanna Street in downtown Binghamton, NY on Sunday June 26, 2016, when his life was taken because another man decided to drive drunk. We hear of these stories all of the time, which we shouldn’t, because it should never happen – especially in your hometown. Friends and family of William Nash held a candlelight vigil to honor his memory.
We seriously think our hearts stopped when we watched this video. A group of motorcyclists are taking a sweet ride down a sunny, winding road, when all of a sudden one of them loses control of their bike, hits the side of the road, and ends up going airborne, flying over a barbed wire fence and landing feet away from where the accident happened. It’s the scariest thing we have seen in a while!
