What a difference a couple of weeks make. After the first show two weeks ago which was pretty bad, I missed it last week, (July 4th, was it on?) but last night I watched Superbikes and it was quite an improvement over their premiere show.
There was a segment at Roland Sands’ shop where they showed a couple of his bikes including “No Regrets” the 2006 Biker Build Off winner, and host Jason Britton took the bike out for a little spin. Then there was an extended segment covering the Ducati Monster Challenge with closeups of the bikes, interviews with the builders and a walk through the Barber Motorsports Museum.
If there is a problem it’s the effort to squeeze too much into one show and you get the bounce around feeling, just when you would like to hear a bit more, bang, they’re off to something else. That’s a problem common to many shows, though, so other than that, it was a big step forward. Maybe they’ve settled down a bit, time will tell.
