King of Jordan Straddles a Hog

2/26/2008 2:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Believe it or not, this is the King of Jordan!

King Abdullah II bin Al Hussein, who in the '90s appeared in an episode of "Star Trek: Voyager," took a royal ride on his red Harley in South Africa on Monday. Looks like the Middle East has their very own Governator.

Does anyone wonder why the middle east is in chaos? The King of Jordan is out joy riding on a motorcycle while violence rages on all around his kingdom. This guy doesn't care about anything but himself.

Hey # 13, i doubt very much that ever even happened. The security here do not shoot randomly at balconies, and you must of confused yourself maybe with Israel. LOL That would be believable..Jordan is the most peaceful country in the Middle East, with a Great King protecting his people. Don't post comments like these, just for fun, cause I'm an American living in Jordan now for 7 years, and besides being a beautiful country which includes one of the 7 Wonders of the World, (Petra) Jordan is the most safest country to live in, security wise. I feel safer here, than I did living in the states!!! Plus, I agree with # 11, Queen Rania is definitely a beautiful and intelligent woman, who is making a big difference for the people in Jordan. God Bless them both!
Plus, FYI, I know that your story is not true, bc the security here do not drive hummers, I see them pass by in the streets all the time. It's kinda hard to miss, really. Anyone living in Jordan would know that! LOL WHATEVER!!! And I feel also that i must respond to the stupid idiot,# 5, in defense of the King! C'mon, WTF??? Have some respect, he at least is an intelligent leader, unlike ehem...Mr. Bush!!!

That chaos comment doesn't make a whole lot of sense. After 9/11 Bush went on vacation, lol. Me thinks that is much worse...

His mother was British and his father, the late king of Jordan was an ally as well. He did a tourism promo for Jordan prior to 9/11 that aired on the Discovery Channel in an attempt to get more Westerners to travel to Jordan. It looks like a beautiful country. One of their sports is sand skiing.

I love this guy, he is very educated, very soft-spoken, and etremely sexy, just like Karzai in Afghanistan.

He and his wife are awesome. They do not let their wealth and position get in the way of common sense and humanitarianism. Too bad all the world's "royals" aren't so well-grounded.

My own opinion of King Abdullah is that he can't even compare to Jordan's previous ruler, King Hussein. He is waisful show off who spends time and money riding bikes and gambling. Jordan on the other hand is the most beautiful and hospitable place after my own country ofcourse. I've been there many times and never seen any extremisam, the crime such as killings, rapes... is pretty much nonexistant. People who bash Jordan are just ignorant individuals who can not accept that not every country is like their own, there are different cultures and customs everywhere.

Anyone say any bad word about his majesty king Abdullah II (king of Jordan) is a hater.
Shame on those who criticized his majesty, you all need to rethink what ever comments you have made because:
-First his majesty king Abdullah II is the son of King Hussein, the wise king who maintained peace in the Middle East …the greatest king of the 21 century….my king, and the father of the new generation of Jordanians.
-second, his majesty king Abdullah II beside his daily humanitarian work, and his efforts to restore peace in the region, and leading the way in fighting terrorism he dedicate the rest of his daily time to give hope for people who in need for it through his daily speeches which is directed to his people and the whole humanity.(so can you all give some more respect to his majesty).
-Third, to those who don’t know his majesty king Abdullah II is a warrior, ranger, pilot, parachute jumper, a pike rider, car racer, a king, and on the top of all of that he is a human king.
- Fourth, his majesty king Abdullah II besides representing himself he represent the Jordanian, and the Arabic nation… so back up haters, loosers, and watch who you missing with junkies.
In the end thanks for all who post positive comments about the king, his majesty king Abdullah II .
To the loosers and haters posted negative posts look yourself in the mirror … you are ugly stupid… racist, prejudice ….haters…….so back up dummies.
to the record my name is Riyadh M. Saud.... BROUDLY JORDANIAN - ARABIC.......FROM IRBID

For those who made bad comments about his majesty, I advise you to go read more and educate yourself about his majesty accomplishments in just a short time.
For his majesty to keep Jordan away of the flames of war in Middle East the hottest and violent region in the world is a A+ SUCCESS FOR THE YOUNG KING AND HI QUEEN, RANIA. His majesty deserve some time of vacation, considering his active life style.
To his majesty, I say thank you your majesty for being a human king, and for making Jordan the best country in the world.
Your majesty, my dad was a soldier in the Jordan Army, and my both brothers. (AL -SAUD )family in IRBID-Jordan and in USA, AND THE REST OF THE WORLD … just giving you all support … and say : “we all behind you your majesty.”

Is the King of Jordan negotiating with Israel and Palestinians to bring an end to violence between Arabs and Jews in the middle east? NO! He's a wealthy playboy who does nothing.

This comment is for the loser that calls himself, "toomanydoggies"... If you know how to read, i replied to your first message stating "while violence rages on all around his kingdom". Again, like the idiot you are, you reply "you've never heard of Iraq or Israel?" HELLO??? CAN U READ??? Let me give you some information you probably don't know. Jordan is a kingdom, all on its own, with its own King.... Iraq and Israel has a president or for now, a prime minister. King Abdullah rules his own country, not other neighboring ones!!!!. DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THIS??? Yes, of course there is violence in Iraq and Israel, duh!!! But there is NO SUCH VIOLENCE IN JORDAN!!!! That's my point!! Now, who's a dumbass??

Never judge a book by its cover.......i think it's beyond unfair what has been said about his majesty on this site! Jordan is the only safest country in the middle east who's by the way trapped between Iraq, Palestine & Israel( chaos and instability). His Majesty and his Wife, Queen Rania are modern educated royals who are beyond down to earth and has changed Jordan in the past 8 years to a new level! A Better level than it was before! Let's not forget that Jordan is an US ally. Her Majesty was on Oprah countless times! She is a celebrity. Their Majesties are LOVED by Billions of people all over the world!
By the way, i think its silly when you say Jordan is a terrorist country. If you never been there, then don't judge! Look at your own hand, not all your fingers are the same!
