Just to throw an idea into the ring, how about (re)building a bike/trike over the course of the series. Just a small spot in each episode saying "This is what we've done this week, this is what we've still got to do, this is why we did it etc..." Could be a good link to then going and filming at a platers/painters/suspension specialist etc.... Think about how successful "A Bike is Born" was on Sky. Even better suggest an idea or two each week and have an online vote, this way at the end of the series the bike will have been designed by the audience at which point you could maybe give it away as a prize or use it for publicity in order to gain a second series.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, how unexpected, 3 guys,(no women i note, how inclusive!!) all 'passionate' about bikes, one who is an old fart character, one a young trendy sporty guy and one who is an opinionated loudmouthed gobshite, and a guest celebrity every week. where have we seen that format before? although to be precise, where havent we seen it?
im wondering why everyone seems so keen to fit in with and make themselves compliant with and attractive to mainstream society, personally i preffered it when folk on bikes were treated as scum and ostracized by society in general. sure they hated us and were suspicious of us, but that meant they left us alone. ive no desire to fit in or be understood.
good luck to em, i suppose they think it will make them stars, but luck is what they are going to need a lot of!

Wondered how they would get something like this on the desk of a commisioner at the BBC till i saw the "lead" presenter.
Very hard show to get right it is all down to the chem of the presenters.
That don't work they the show won't.

why? is there somehow a void in your life that only steve berry some harley dealer and a 'down wit da kids' stunt rider can fill? i dont need a tv prog about bikes, its certainly not going to teach me you or anyone else about bikes, it'll be, 'ooooh look how well i ride fast, check out my wheelys', followed by 'well back in my day we all rode our riteous hawgs to a steely dan gig' followed by much guffawing and then 'hey my opinion matters more, let me upset some minorities and insult some national stereotypes whilst i give you all the benefit of my fecking huge ego and loud mouth' it has already failed because a 'top gear for bikes' idea was never going to work if it used the top gear format. top gear isnt about cars, its not a motoring programme, its light entertainment, they might just as well have been making a tv prog about cooking or gardening, these 3 will try to be clarkson hammond and may and thats all everyone will see, they will then try to mitigate this by doing some attempt at serious things like training or safety gear, and the whole thing will unravel. id rather go down the local boozer and have a beer. id like to say 'good effort, and good luck' but this is just lazy, its exactly what my previous post 2 years ago said it would be, a copy of the '3 blokey blokes having a right old larf' tg format.

Go for it, its a great idea, leave the Top Gear format, its done to death. But a good British Biking program is needed. Fuck the dismissers, very easy to criticise on the internet. Nice to hear something constructive. The trouble with seeking opinions is, most who like an idea wont comment, they will just sit and chuckle at the ones who wish to dismiss with their own brand of negativity. I'd support and watch a British biking show, I don't care if it is power ranger/Harley Dude stuff, just be wide and varied. Try to show the full spectrum of bikes, from scooters to Gsxr's and Vn's and H-D's and all points between. Don't get dragged into the lifestyle thing just do a show about Bikes.

It does not bode well, but good luck to them, after the shit Slob and myself went through to try and get even some interest from production companies... well, I lost heart after 2 years of trying, Slob and myself thought we had a winning format. But apparently it has to be a clone of TG or near as damn it.

We thought we could raise some interest after doing a LOT of research into what bikers wanted, all we got was promises that never materialised, ho hum thats life. But seriously, good luck to them .......... but the name really is bad.

*If it starts to even look like the format I presented to 2 production companies, someone will die.

I wouldn't mind seeing something that reviewed new bikes and compared them with others right across all styles..I'd also watch something that showed different rideouts (in Britain) and bikers pubs and cafe's..there is a vast difference between bikes of similar types..take the 1100 Dragstar and the VN for example..

I think anything that encourages more respect for bikers can't be too bad, and if it is, well then it won't last very long..

Last of the summer wine started off about a biker and his chick...

John.

I think something like wheeler dealers with bikes would be good. You know, Ed goes out, buys a bike for a grand, spends 2 grand on it and 200 hours work then sells it fot 3050 and tells us how well he has done

That would be good for Ed..

I'd rather see them buy a bike for 300 on the road and then do a 1000 mile road trip on it with just an RAC card and a mobile phone.

Lost heart mate, Motorsickle was working well for a while (vids still get loads of hits), but without support it does not work. We may be coming back in another form though.
