Superbikes on Speedvision Channel!!

Anyone see last nights "Superbike" episode? Last week it was a Ducatti segment. Last night it was the R1's. Unbelievable stunts. The episode focused on Macoy Motorsports and there in Tennessee I guess. There's an 11 miles stretch of road with like a 131 turns. They close it off and let the superbikers go nuts. It's suppose to be a big attraction. Anyone been there?
Anyone have any parts on their "Tree of Shame?" The ZX10 episode will be coming up soon I hope. If you haven't seen it check it out. It's on Tuesday nights at 10:00 I think. Thank God for Tivo, I will be saving last nights.

I saw the last couple episodes. They weren't bad. From the sound of it, I am glad that I missed the first episode.

I still wish they would have kept Two Wheeled Tuesday.

http://www.dealsgap.com/ here's where the place is. I have heard it's alot of fun. McCoy motorsports is mainly an R1 parts/service house and it looks like they know what they are doing.

it was a special on Deal Gap/The Dragon in NC/TN border. I dont think they close the road off...? McCoy owns R1/R6 Forum now I believe, hence all the yammies.

Im still not a fan of the hooligan stuff on public roads, but at least it was a halfway decent show last night... kids, dont go trying to ride like they do on Superbikes, stunts or kneedraggin, you'll hurt yourself.

Live it before its too late.

Everytime, I start thinking maybe the show is not to bad, the host does an endo or wheelie for the camera, then I remember it is still portraying a bad image. I, too, miss TWT. Greg White, where you at man?

It's still gay. Like you said, it takes what could be a cool topic and focuses on guys doing wheelies or standing around looking at show bikes.

Sorry a lil but do they actually close the gap just to let bikes ride in it? Or was that just something they did for the show?



Lets say somebody breaks into your house and you dont have a gun.How are you going to shoot them?

It wasn't closed off, he was just riding like an ass on a 2 lane public highway.
Even the other road that was supposedly closed off, by the airport, they were watching for cars.

Show sucked, gave no taste of the actual Gap road. Kept showing straight portion (bridge) and a guy stunting- seen it.

Seen better videos of the road on the web. Hello- EDITING maybe??

And most of the R1's were dripping in chrome and pounds of paint.
Let's bring our extended, nitrous, hideous R1 to the gap and debut it- why?

They glanced by a guy with some actual performance mods and back to the bling and nitrous purge-ooohhh/ ahhhhhh.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
