I have to admit, that I do watch "American Chopper" when ever I get the chance. Kind of a guilty pleasure. I don't think I want one, but I do enjoy watching the Teutals going at it. Mikey is a hoot!

I do agree, that their bikes are more for show than go. Some of the theme bikes are kind of neat. But I would not want to ride one for more than a couple of miles for fear of breakdown or accident due to the inherrant instability of choppers. What would you do if you had to do an emergency manuever? I can't imagine what it would be like to have to swerve one of those choppers to miss an object in the road.

Has anyone out there ever ridden a custom chopper? If so, tell us about it.
