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.

I just got an image of Mr Burns attempting anything physical and failing miserably.

I saw a clip of this on TV and thought it was a stunt double.

The little girl in the photo and the blonde woman on the left are the only two that have any caring bones in their bodies! The rest of the ignorant people are laughing at an 80 year old man falling off a vespa! I hope karma bites them when they're older! Geez people are sick these days!!

He's not any better with 4 wheels... he can't drive.

I don't think he's ever had a driver's licence.

I WATCHED LETTERMAN LAST NIGHT BECAUSE OF REGIS. They seem to be very close friends. Letterman stated, "We have a gift for you." I am sure he had no intent for Regis to fall off the bike. Unfortunately, Regis had never driven a motorcycle and was unaware how fast the bike would take off. The main thing is he was not hurt. Letterman took over and gave Regis a ride down some street and ended on a happy note with two friends having fun, like kids! Very, very nice!
