Top-Gear-USAThis week on Top Gear the boys go to Sturgis.  History Channel describes this episode as:

The Top Gear hosts embark on a two-wheel road trip through South Dakota to the world’s largest automotive event, the annual Sturgis Bike Week. Starting out on scooters and needing to pass challenges to progress to the bigger bikes they’ll need to ride to fit in at the rally, the hosts go through hell as they close in on Sturgis. The winner will race a super-charged Ariel Atom against a 200 mph sports bike, while the loser will have to take part in a stunt, courtesy of HISTORY channel’s newest series, American Daredevils.” 

While a lot of folks do not care for this version of the famous BBC show, I enjoy it.  The biggest issue I have with the show is that Tanner (the professional racer) always wins the contest to drive the hot cars.  Come on, I want to see one of the other guys wreck a $200,000 car!

Café Racer TV

This TV show has been around for a while and its fourth season is set to start on the 6th of November. It is presented on the Velocity Channel (part of the Discovery Network).

As the name implies Café Racer covers the bikes, builders and life style of the Café Bike scene. I have watch the show for the last two years and it is enjoyable. My favorite show was the one where they connected the café bike scene to pin-up girls!

I enjoy this show and my DVR is already set to record.

There has been several motorcycle related TV shows here in the US lately.  The most recent is “The History Channel’s WE’RE THE FUGAWIS”.

I discovered this show a few weeks ago and it is reasonably entertaining.  These guys are not a gang but a Motorcycle Club of friends.  History Channel says this about the show:

“Meet the Fugawis: an upstate New York motorcycle club whose members live lifewerethefugawis_abouttheseries_2-E with a freedom and fraternity that many guys can only dream of. In an age when everyone is seeking to strike the perfect work-life balance, this group of bikers has somehow figured it out. Members of the club include expert builders, plumbers, electricians and general contractors, so when they’re not out in the wind on the open road they’re tackling construction projects of all shapes and sizes to earn a living”.

Not sure what this says about me but the Fugawis’ are the type of guys that I could hang out with.  I give this show a 4 out 5!
