    I'll be watching this with interest, especially in the light of Sgt Bilco's post regarding his trip to the USA next year which I am interested in.

    Treat it for what it is - a TV programme with the inevitable scripting, editing, faux deadlines and predictable over-dramatisation of fairly innocuous situations that goes with it. But at least it is motorbikes on the box which beats reality TV/home makeovers/cooking programmes/soap operas etc etc etc. As a minority interest pursuit we get little enough exposure on the idiot lantern so let's not knock it when we do get some coverage.

    As with Top Gear though there will be the usual bunch of miserable grumpy gits on here who will already be sharpening the knives in order to pan it - but strangely enough will tune in to watch it every week

    +2. Not so sure about Russ Malkin though.
