Regis Philbin

Bails on Vespa

During Letterman Taping

11/17/2011 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Regis Philbin tried to tame a mighty Vespa on the streets of NYC this afternoon ... and lost.

The 80-year-old was riding the wild scooter for a bit with David Letterman ... when Regis tipped his bike and spilled onto the asphalt.

Philbin grimaced as he hit the ground -- but being the tough son of a bitch that he is, Reeg got right back up and finished the bit.

A rep for "Regis and Kelly" tells TMZ, Regis didn't suffer any injuries during the minor spill, and is doing just fine.

It was the Buzz Lightyear up his @ss that caused him to loose balance!!! And the fact TMZ decided to publish his X-Ray on their web site... Bummer!

NOT cool. Whose hairbrain idea was that? He's 80 years old for * sake. Next headline: "Letterman kills Regis". All he needs is one bloodclot. Good grief.

Haha @ all the sick bastards in the second photo still grinning and laughing at him. They won't be laughing when they take a nasty spill at 80 years old. Poor Regis!

Damnn, I hope he's been taking his Actonel or Boniva. If not & forsee hip replacement in his near future. Damnn, what a way to go out.

Dumb thing to do without any instruction. On any bike...you turn the front end and squeeze the brake handle...you go right to the ground. And the helmet? Without a chin strap...it's a hat!
