Looks like the Speed Channel is getting into chopper reality shows, I guess they saw one too many American Choppers and said, “Hey, we can do that, too.” The new show, Texas Hardtails, is based at Rick Fairless’ Strokers Dallas. Rick has quite an operation building choppers, selling bikes, parts and apparel and he runs Strokers Ice House, a combination restaurant and bar. Whatever you might say about Rick, he looks like he’s having a lot of fun and I think that’s great. His business has lots of regular gatherings where bikers roll in and get quite a show, bikini babes and all. The show is scheduled to debut June 28th at 8:30PM on the Speed Channel.
