From Grand Theft Wiki

A Freeway in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

The Freeway is a motorcycle that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Contents

Description

The Freeway is the second and third fastest bike in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, respectively. Due to its heavy weight it is not suitable for stunts or off-roading, however its speed makes it an enjoyable bike for regular street riding. The Freeway resembles a classic Harley-Davidson motorcycle in all its incarnations. The Angel is similar to the Freeway, its only visible difference being its patriotic paintjob.

In GTA IV, the Freeway sports a Western Motorcycle Company brand and conventional handlebars, distinguishing it from more radically designed choppers.

Trivia

  • In GTA IV, some game files (handling.dat and POLICE_SCANNER.rpf) name the Freeway as "Bobber", although there already is a vehicle named "Freeway" in POLICE_SCANNER.rpf. "Bobber" may have been the Freeway's name in the GTA IV Beta.[1][2][3] "Bobber" is a term that refers to a type of modified motorbikes somewhat similar to "choppers".
  • Upon collecting all thirty vehicles for Stevie, he agrees to purchase vehicles from Niko Bellic. The Freeway may be sold to him for $2,000.
  • The Freeway plays the following radio stations by default when entered:

GTA Vice City

GTA San Andreas

GTA Liberty City Stories

GTA Vice City Stories

GTA IV

  • Though it is somewhat harder to find than the other two chopper bikes, the Hellfury and Zombie, the Freeway can still sometimes be found in a specific part of the city. The Freeway can usually be found near the player's Safehouse in South Bohan, though it can be found elsewhere in Bohan also.
  • Can be found parked in front of The Willis Wash and Lube car wash in Willis, Dukes, when Stevie ask's you to collect one.
  • Very common in Multiplayer, often spawning around the airport.

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Freeway is an Autobot in the Generation One continuity family.
Yo moma is so fat, even Unicron would go oh!

A cruel and foulmouthed Throttlebot, Freeway is the Autobots' self-appointed "King of Comedy" and possibly makes himself quite unpopular as a result. No one is immune from his special brand of humor, not even high-ranking officers. He's always on the lookout for even the smallest and most trivial of mistakes; these can be an opening for him to unleash a torrent of pointed, mocking abuse. Freeway is convinced that he's absolutely hilarious. Point out that he's not really all that funny, and he'll do you even worse, insult your heritage, make scandalous suggestions about your progenitor, and claim you have no sense of humor and are, in fact, a wussy. Freeway will make himself laugh so hard that he blows a circuit and shorts himself out.

Freeway can dish it out, but he sure can't take it. Treat him the way he treats others, and Freeway will very quickly become angry, twisted and resentful. Very much a fuming ball of wires.

French name (Canada): Autoroute
Japanese name: Runway
Italian name: Saterbot

Marvel Comics continuity

Thanks to a Decepticon Titanium-class Destruction Drone, Freeway and his fellow Throttlebots are captured and brought to the Chief Decepticon Fuel Auditor Ratbat. An outbreak of Scraplets had begun on Earth, and Ratbat ordered them to travel there and destroy all of the infected -- or he would destroy the planet itself to prevent spread of the deadly disease. Given new Earth-style vehicle forms and canisters of corrosive acid, Freeway and the others arrive on Earth and soon find Goldbug in the death throes of a Scraplets infection. They attempted to destroy him, but during the skirmish, Goldbug's human friend Charley Fong discovered a cure for Scraplets, the "rare chemical" water. With this knowledge, they managed to destroy all the Scraplets with help from G.B. Blackrock. The Cure!

Freeway and the Throttlebots continued to travel on Earth with Goldbug and Blaster, but that only made them targets for virtually everyone -- the Decepticons, the Autobot faction Goldbug had gone AWOL from, and the humans who hated and feared all Cybertronians. After escaping one of the Combaticons, Goldbug suggested they hide in a used car lot (because that worked so well for him before). Astonishingly the owner, "Big Steve" Ludwig, noticed a giant earthmover dump truck magically appearing on his lot, and soon put two-and-two together after receiving a notice from the local RAAT boys. After pouring sugar into the Autobots' gas tanks, he summoned the proper authorities. Freeway and the Throttlebots were carted off and taken prisoner by RAAT's parent organization, III. Used Autobots

Still not recognizing the difference between Autobots and Decepticons, III's bigwigs publicly threatened to execute their prisoners if any more robot attacks took place. Guess what -- the Decepticons were willing to call their bluff. After the inevitable raid, Forrest Forsythe ordered the Autobots crushed into cubes. However, a sympathetic (and borderline competent) agent named Walter Barnett realized Freeway and his friends were telling the truth about there being two factions of robots, and salvaged their cerebro-circuits before the execution, transferring their brain chips into electronic toy cars. Toy Soldiers! Freeway and the Throttlebots remained in Barnett's possession for some time, but were apparently returned to the Autobots at some point behind the scenes. The Throttlebots were reconstructed into new bodies replicating their old ones...only to be destroyed by Starscream. Dark Star

The Transformers cartoon

Voice actor: Danny Mann (US), Hōchū Ōtsuka (Japan)
Seriously, guys! That's NOT funny!

Freeway and three of the other Throttlebots were part of the force sent by Rodimus Prime to recover the body of Optimus Prime. Freeway was amongst the very first to be infected by the Hate Plague. The Return of Optimus Prime, Part 1

While defending Autobot City on Earth from the Decepticons, Freeway demanded that Snapdragon back off. With a loud cry of "NO!", the Horrorcon kicked Freeway back into a wall, losing a rear wheel in the process. Evidently this was not a serious injury, as he was found fighting alongside his fellow Autobots a while later. The Rebirth, Part 1

He's Brave, He's Acrobatic, He's an industrial tread wipe for Sixshot. And apparently he doesn't like axle fumes.

Toys

Generation One

  • Freeway (Throttlebot, 1987)
Japanese ID number: C-96
Nice legs
Freeway transforms into a Chevrolet Corvette. Like all Throttlebots, Freeway's primary gimmick is a pull-back motor that sends him zipping forward in either car or robot modes.
In 1991, Freeway and the other Throttlebots were re-released in the European market as part of the Classics line. For this release, all of the Throttlebots but Wideload were retooled to have their rubsign indents removed, the decals replaced with normal factory-applied paper faction sigil decals.


Trivia

  • A working name for the original Alternators Ford Mustang toy (which ultimately ended up as Grimlock) was "Freeway," according to various early store listings.
