BTS #AlexOLoughlin & Motorbikes on #H50 Set

Over the years there have been a few scenes that involved Alex and motorcycles on Hawaii Five-0.

Some behind the scenes pictures have been posted of it back then.

Let’s look a them.

Season one 

Episode 1:06

Steve and Chin needed to take a trip up the mountain to collect evidence.

I’m up there, no helmet and just told to go for it. I was riding this dirtbike into the side of the mountain, raining sweat and giving it some. And halfway through it, I thought to ask, ‘If I die, will insurance cover this?’

Transcript

Alex: Oh man, I can’t even fit my legs up there bro.

I’m not going anywhere on this.

… I’m too scared.

  • And

This is the stunt they did for that episode.

Because fans knew Alex loved bikes, some actually thought and debated the fact that it might have been Alex doing the stunt himself…..

Video: 

Just note that it was in fact not Alex, nor his regular stunt double of the time, Justin Sundquist, who did this stunt.  Hawaii Five-0 Stunt Coordinator at the time, Jeff Cadiente, confirmed who it was with the following comment:

 

Question: Are you a motorbike addict?

Alex: Yeah, I am. The studios hate it. That’s just something I’ve always loved.
