Celebs rev it up at charity bash

There will be no motorcycle riding in the near future for Niki Taylor.

''He's my soul mate, the love of my life,'' said the 33-year-old cover girl, adding Lamar is a ``great kisser.

''Taylor, who was born in Fort Lauderdale and raised in Pembroke Pines, now lives in Nashville. Alas, Grandma's going to have to travel to see the little one -- all the Taylors remain here.

Taylor can't wait to get back in the saddle; she's been riding a Road King for five years. Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora was a guest of honor but called in sick.

Fans at the $500-a-plate charity event still got to mingle with his buddy, Aerosmith's singer/songwriter Richie Supa, as well as American Idol finalist Syesha Mercado, According to Jim's Jim Belushi, Big Kenny of Big & Rich and NASCAR legend Kyle Petty.

Asked how many bikes he owned, Petty said, ``If you talk to my wife, she'll say I have two too many.

''Seriously, Petty owns 20 -- Triumphs, BMWs, Harleys. Old only. ``No one wants to see that new stuff.''
