So Victoria must have been somewhat concerned when David Beckham crashed his custom-built motorbike on Sunset Boulevard on Friday.

Beckham had just left a tattoo parlour on his Super Vintage 93' Knuckle bike when he took a tumble.

According to the Mirror, he fell off the bike after "losing control" following a visit to the famous Shamrock Tattoo Parlour in West Hollywood.

News site TMZ said David walked away unharmed from the incident (phew!), and left his bike in the middle of the road as he went back to the parlour to get friends to help him move it.

He reportedly crashed after swerving to avoid paparazzi.

David was later seen with a bandaged arm as he arrived at LAX airport with his children.

It is thought he's heading back to England with his brood to visit Victoria.

David has a well-known passion for bikes and, back in June, took to the road on two wheels in a 90-minute BBC documentary that saw him discovering Brazil's Amazon rainforest with three friends.

According to the Daily Mail, he said at the time: "I retired 12 months ago and my whole life, my whole career has been about having a particular schedule that I've always kept to, so we just wanted to be able to jump on the bikes and do what we wanted, wherever we wanted.

"I wanted to do something that we would all enjoy - I'm a big motorbike rider and so are two of my three friends that came with me on this trip. It was the kind of journey that had no schedule."
