Trivia

The scene in the Del Fuegos bar when Woody was squinting was almost entirely improvised. The cast had done the scene a couple of times and would ad-lib occasionally. One time John Travolta just started squinting in a Clint Eastwood impression. The other characters' reactions were real. They were expecting John to say his lines but kept going with it.
Maggie's Diner was built in Madrid, NM for the film, but the producers were asked to leave the building standing when filming was complete. It is now a gift shop that sells Wild Hog and Del Fuego souvenirs.
The original script and logo line featured the notorious Hells Angels motorcycle gang, but it was later changed to the Del Fuegos after the famous club sued Disney.
Peter Fonda's appearance pays homage to the classic biker film Easy Rider, in which he co-starred with Dennis Hopper.
Was #1 during its opening weekend in the U.S., earning $39.7 million.
The movie features a quick cameo by Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. of American Chopper: The Series (2003) fame. The two famous bike builders appear in the Wild Hog's favorite bar as the bar owner and a background patron.
The army-green bike Jack (Ray Liotta) is riding has the Orange County Choppers logo, the custom bike building company made famous in American Chopper: The Series (2003).
A sequel was planned but scrapped due to the critical and commercial failure of Old Dogs (2009), also directed by Walt Becker.
"Hog" is trading symbol of Harley-Davidson, Inc. (NYSE).
Although the guys are portrayed as being suburbanites-turned-bikers from Cincinnati, Ohio, none of the filming in the movie actually took place in Cincinnati.
When Jack (Ray Liotta) is confronting the Wild Hogs in the biker bar, the beer he is drinking is clearly Michelob Ultra, a low-carb, light beer.
The characters are based on a criticism made by George Carlin in his HBO special "You're All Diseased", when talking about Harley-Davidson themed restaurants.
In the early scene where Dudley loses control of his bike after parking, it is obvious from the distinctive road signs that they are filming in downtown Albuquerque.
This is the second movie together for Kevin Durand and Ray Liotta. They were both previously in Smokin Aces (2006)
In the coffee shop scene where Dudley (William H. Macy) is hitting on the girl sitting next to him, he says "I think I have to research 'Alternative Specs', the computer says and searches for 'Alternative SEX' instead. One of the voices during the slew of 'Alternative Sex' sites, Jon Travolta's voice can be heard saying "Barnyard love!" in a southern accent.

Tim Allen played Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story 1, 2 and 3 and had a sidekick named "Woody" played by Tom Hanks. It's humorous that in this movie Tim Allen again has a sidekick named "Woody", but played this time by John Travolta, who also played a cowboy in "Urban Cowboy".
