I don't get some of you guys sometimes. Finally, motorcycling is getting some good press, and bikes are being used as props for educational shows that teach History to the masses in a fun, inter-active way.
Whom among us would not enjoy riding cross-country, discussing history and visiting historic areas, etc.?
It is about "American" history, hence maybe the obvious choice of an "American" bike to go along with it? Why the bike, and nation of origin snobbery all the time? Granted, Peter Segal is much easier to take than the "American Ride" guy. Less "macho", hollywood type-cast version biker imagery. Peter I believe is much more representative of the majority of serious riders out there.
When the UK, Japan, Germany, or Italy decide to produce a like-minded History show, they will have great home-manufactured Bike choices as well.
If more riders would watch an educational program like this, we would have less posters talking about their "Constitutional Rights" to have loud pipes and not wear a helmet!!
I would also be interested to view shows like this from other areas of the world. Are there any other Programs out there with Motorcycling as the Background?
The Rise and fall of the Roman Empire by a History Guy on a Ducati? That would be great!
