It is the same show as before, behind the scenes at the Full Throttle Saloon, with a few differences.

Michael Ballard and Jesse still argue over Jesse’s stunts.  Fajita Mike still gets drunk and in trouble.  Rowdy bikers still get into fights.

This season though, was smashed together with content from the 2014 and 2015 Sturgis rallies.  I think that is because there was not going to be a 2015 series of Full Throttle.

I think that this season of the show was only the result of the “World’s Largest Biker Bar” burning down a couple months after the 2015 Rally. The fact that it is not on its normal home of TrueTV butFull-Throttle-Saloon-Fire-destroys-South-Dakota-biker-bar-known-from-reality-TV-show-534x330 on Destination America (which barely has the show on its website) reinforces my thought about the show.

With three of five shows aired as I type. The primary reason to watch is that you get to meet Michael and Angie’s new baby Emily (and see Angie explode when she finds Jesse selling pictures of Emily, that was funny).  You can also see Jesse ride the zip line while engulfed in flames… which was pretty cool, I mean hot!  J

It will not be until the fifth and final episode of the season when we will get to see what the Ballard’s and Jesse decide regarding the future of the saloon.  The best I can do is three stars, you can tell this was put together on the fly, trying to keep track that some of the show is 2014 and some 2015 is distracting.


I have enjoyed Full Throttle in the past and I hope they bring it back…if they try to rebuild the bar.


3 out of 5 stars
