Ask Harry to test the adventure bikes on proper gravel roads.
The mine dump/quarry tests don't do it for me.

I enjoy your show and record each episode

Woema really made me sick with their stupid jokes and some of their presenters - I only watched them when there was a new bike being launched that interested me (and then with Rennies beside me)

Great show..
Have the guys updated the website lately? Used to get tests, ride reports etc. On there but updates were few and far between

I've watched it a few times and reckon it's quite good - I like the way the presenters take the piss and give, what seems to be, their own opinions on the bikes and gear they test.

A watered down Top Gear approach, perhaps ..................

Too many vehicle programs are following the Top Gear recipe.  Not even Top Gear Aus or US are successful at this, why would anyone else be?

Yeah!  Of all the possible third presenters, Skinny, Storm, Speed Queen, Nicole, etc., etc., who do we get?  Donovan.  Life can be so exceedingly cruel!   :imaposer:

I love the show. Have it on "record series" on my pvr. Still need to check the last episode.

But please enlighten us, why is the video quality so bad? Yikes, some of it looks worse than sabc analogue.

It's the way IgnitionTV broadcast. I don't know the technical side of it (I don't know much about anything, it would seem) but they broadcast differently to the likes of SuperSport. I imagine it's a cost thing.

Thanks for the kind words.

The show needs some serious sponsors in order to give it more of a quality look and feel. Perhaps some Wilddogs can come on board. I'll start. I will sponsor a comb for Harry.

Mat and Harry searched the length and breadth of the land looking for the best possible presenters. Unfortunately, they were either too expensive, busy or couldn't be bothered, so they eventually settled on me. Bad luck.

Skinny was too busy with Howie Zowie and two other, um, friends...

I would love to know why Harry would mount and dismount the Caponola from the right hand side. The bike is leaning over to the left on the side stand and it looks so uncomfortable getting on from the right.

I enjoyed it. Light hearted and fun but also fairly informative..
If in doubt, flat out.

I also never miss it, in fact I will watch almost any motorcycle program and always find I will enjoy at least some part of it.

I like the relaxed presenting style, niggling and honesty. Also like the mix and program content.

I met and spent a bit of time talking to Harry at the 2013 Bikefest. What you see is what you get, he is exactly the same on and off camera which I think is nice. Matt is a Rooinek like me, whats not to like  :biggrin:.

Skinny is also tall.

Here is another deeply informative update:

On The Bike Show this week (starting yesterday sorry) is a piece entitled "30 hours with the Kawasaki H2" which includes a top speed run, an acceleration run, cornering and Harry picking up his daughter from school.

Then again, I think it's the H2 on this week. Or maybe it's the episode with the Ducati Scrambler. Either way, would someone be good enough to watch the show (a laborious task which we can only apologise for) and see what's really on?

And that concludes our informative post this week...

1.  Haters gonna hate....  hate....  hate....

2.  Ainters gonna ain't. ....  ain't. ....  ain't. ....


3.  Just the usual  crap,  really.   Harry and Matt at some little biker gathering in Margate.   Matt interviewed the organiser.   Harry looked at a nifty,  super duper coat hanger thingy.   Clinton rode a 800 triple bike around RSR and that silly dude Donovan Something or the other, interviewed a guy breaking long distance riding records. All boring and useless and therefore I didn't watch and have no idea of what was on.  :ricky:
