Ben Affleck celebrated his birthday with a new ride! The actor turned 48 on Saturday, and was spotted commemorating the occasion with girlfriend Ana de Armas — as well as a new BMW motorcycle.

Affleck took the bike out for a birthday ride with de Armas, 32, riding on the back. The actress — who met Affleck while filming their upcoming movie, Deep Water — gifted him with the motorcycle.

As you can see in the video accompanying this article, there are dedicated Harley-Davidson riders in other parts of the world like Japan, proving these bikes have a far broader appeal.

You can literally just sit back, relax, and just enjoy this video. Maybe consider putting it on full screen for a truly immersive experience. It might be the closest you get to riding one of these Harleys.
