I dont mind the chopper stuff. However, as a person who is too young to have been thru the chopper craze of the 60's and 70's even I am aware that choppers are allowed to have an engine thats is not an HD based V-twin. How can such an individualist group be so un-original when it comes to the main center piece of their creation.

Jesse ain't no Dummy. He got a fast bike - He owns a Busa. Just looks bad when a guy who makes top of the line customs rides in on a Jap bike. Long life the Jap bike!

The answer is easy. The majority of people who watch T.V. prefer to sit on the coach and do nothing. So viewing something which is useless is good because these people are useless. Seeing motorcycles that are raced, ridden offroad, or touring adventures would not appeal to them.



I'll admit that I watched the first couple of shows because I actually thought, and still do, that those paint jobs are works of art. I'm not sure I would ever want to ride one of those bikes even for a few miles. I've got back trouble and the lack of suspension would painful to say the least.



I prefer the sound track that my Ducati ST3 makes and the sites my eyes behold as I travel down a 2-lane road. I actually feel sorry for folks who think they're alive sitting in front of a T.V.

I wouldn't want one, but they're fun to look at. I think a lot of us who profess to not liking them would feel differently if we saw them going down the street with riders wearing helmets and Roadcrafters .... in other words, it boils down to the whole debate about the proper way to ride a motorcycle.

Someone else said it, but how cool would it be if the show were about building original motorcycles with a turning radius of less than 250'. GP bikes, naked bikes, club racers, hell even cruisers if we must. Somehow that doesn't enchant the non-motorcycling public in quite the same way though.

Next will be a special on Jessie James and Choppers about the History of Choppers with Jessie James. Then will be the History of the History of Choppers with Jessie James, hosted by Jessie James. So on and so forth.



Please just stop it, OK? Next fad please.

Nobody is forcing you to watch dude.
 
Switch the channel. I like choppers the folks who donÂ’t can go f*ck themselves.

So anything you 'don't get' you wish would go away?
