I have a weird feeling that they are going to make sportbikers look like assholes. I guess we'll see on thursday.

Someone tape it for me, i'm interested to see how they portray us, but I have to work, and have no functional VCR to check it out, unless they let me take my dinner break later than usual.

It's actually a re-run. It first aired a couple months ago.
yeah, i dont think so. It was supposed to air back it May but MTV keeps delaying it untill now.

I'm sure it will show some illegal acts being done on sportbikes. It was produced by the Stone Brothers who did the Black Sheep Squadron stunt DVD and they are very professional. There goal was not to portray sportbike riders as being assholes

They were talking about it in Cycle World they said it would portray a famoust stunt group and locals and a new group trying to make it. There is street freestyle in it.

And we wonder why we have a bad name. People see shit like this on TV and assume we all drive recklessly. It's okay in a parking lot but there is no room for it on the streets.

Should be interesting, but it'll probably shed a bad light on sportbike riders (media usually does this). oh well, what else is new?

I just want to see it because it has bikes in it. If it's about stunting people on here are going to get all pissed off over it. I'll just enjoy seeing a sport I like to do on tv because I never get to see much street riding footage.

there is a good side to it being frowned upon by the public. The more parents don't like it the more girls love it.

I like the way you think man!

As long as they make machines that do mach 1 like bikes then there are going to be squids that make everyone else look bad. I started snowboarding 10 years ago and we were looked at pretty much like sportbikers are now. Give it time and it may turn around.

*sigh*

This is just more fuel for the already blazing fire.

I still live with my parents and the day I was going out to buy my Ninja 500R, they told me that if I do they will kick me out of the house. I have nowhere else to go right now. I am only 18.

Sucks bad! I can assure you I wont be a squid tho :twofinger

I am a very cautious guy. This should be an interesting video segment, I hope I dont miss it!

Great now everyone will think that is all we do or are going to do. A local news station did a bit on sportbikes, now when you ride down the road every one looks at you and wants you to do something or starts yelling at you for something they saw people doing on TV. Not everyone stunts, not every stunter stunts on the road. However I will watch it, hopefully it's done tastefully and safely.
