I want to know about the bikes. I have wondered how those KZ1000 were modified to take the jumping and off-roading that was common on the show. Or, did they just use stock bikes and junk them when the frames got bent?

Damn! I hate to admit this but I saw the ORIGINAL season and I think I was in highschool! DAMN I'M OLD!



I remeber the episode where Ponch and John have to ease up to this bozo on a brand new-just-off-the-showroom Z1(?) 900cc Kawasaki 'cause the dude was like, all frozen with fear and *****.



One of 'em hung on to the eased off the throttle while the other banged it down the gears... (Should have just pulled in the clutch but that's like what, 2 seconds and the other takes up minutes of DRAMA)... anyway they git the guy pulled over to the side and this proto-squid, (he's dressed like any other moto-dude of the '70 - no helmet, sleveless shirt, slacks and sneakers), swears off motorcyles and starts walking to the nearest off ramp.



Man, I bet there wasn't a Z1 to be found in a Kawasaki delaership in the lower 48 the day after that aired. Ask him if Kawasaki PAID them for that episode?



OBTW Years later I was pulled over on the 210 Fwy, (the same freeway I beleave they shot the show on before it opened to the public), by a young hispanic CHP officer... it was all I could do NOT to ask. "Ah, didn't you used to have your own TV show?"

Hm, answer in the form of a question.... Ok How about this, What the heck happened to the interview with a real CHiP officer we were promised? We were asked to provide questions to ask the officer. Did it come out and I missed it?



Take care,

Dave

I heard a lot of them were done on a trailer that had both bikes on them!

Do CHP officers actually get outrun by Camaro's on city streets like on CHiP'S?

That part is done. We're doing companion pieces on Estrada and the bikes they ride, and EBass wasn't supposed to be blabbing about future content to the public. It ruins the coolness of the surprise of having Ponch in with our CHP piece. Oh well. JB will have to take the boy's posting privileges!

You know, sad as it is to say, I've never seen it. It's on my ever lengthening "to do" list.

I'll also freely admit that Jon & Ponch got me interested in riding while I was a kid. Heck, where I used to work, my nickname was Ponch whenever I rode in! Here are my questions for Erik:

1. Does he actually ride when he's not doing a show (if so, what type of riding/bikes & how often)?

2. Has he considered being a spokesman for motorcyclist issues (although from a lot of the comments here it seems many riders doubt his credibility)?

3. Whatever happened to the gorgeous blonde cop on the show? And

4. Does she have a daughter?
