When the bright lights of show business shower you with cash, the first order of business is to develop an expensive hobby on which to blow it all. These local celebrities decided to hop on the big bike bandwagon, and now they seem to have formed a cult of famous people who enjoy having large machines between their legs.

Here they are with their prized rides:

1| Dingdong Dantes
Dingdong received a Ducati Diavel as a gift from wife Marian Rivera in 2011. This motorbike is also the one he drove to his wedding last December 2014. According to Top Gear Philippines, the base model was sold at P1.25 million in 2011. The top-of-the line carbon-fiber-clad Diavel Carbon had a price tag of P1.45 million.
