Thumb Better than average

Average being all the other crap on TV.
Some good episodes, some mediocre. Some of the "project bikes" I would rather have stock.

The Katee Sackhoff episode is the best so far.

If only they could keep Mike Seate from speaking.

Last night was the Rokon, very beautiful and creative machine . The drag race stuff wasn't too exciting and wish they'd stop restating and reshowing what was said ten minutes before.

+1 the Rokon turned out lookin good, but they were saying it was "fast" I doubt it.

The drag race bit, other than being at the track closest to me was pretty bad. All of the bikes they were riding were fresh from the showroom, I always thought of cafe racers as being custom bikes, not showroom new.

That's how they stretch 15 minutes of usable program into a 1/2 hour slot- that and adding in some brain-melting commercials

Yeah, but it'd be nice if they showed some of the actual build.

This about as open as that shirt can get. At least for this site:

I liked the few shows I saw. There's only so much TV I can watch. Thank goodness for AppleTV and YouTube, it any kind of moto I want when I want it.
I'll be even happier when the Supercross season starts. I think I'd like to see more moto's on TV, there's so much negative coming out of it.

I like the show but I will admit to being biased. I know the producer and creator Mike Seate from when I lived in Pittsburgh were he also wrote for one of the local papers. He is occasionaly on the show as an interviewer or narrator. He is also the editor and creater of Cafe Racer magazine and wish him nothing but the best.

He is a good guy, a true motorcycle enthusiast. He has produced cafe racer shows for Vintage Motorcycle days and other cycle shows. He is helping to keep tha spirte alive. Good for hm!

I have also ridden with him a few times and he can ride!

The first couple of years of the show they had 10-12 1/2 hour shows with builds spread over several episodes. Guess they got some complaints.
Not sure if I like this format better, but it is nice to see the complete build instead of waiting for the second part to come one when the re-runs aren't in order.
The seem to be spending more time talking this season and less time on the builds.

I don't think the KTM bozo was an ADV'r. I think he bought the bike for the build.

The magazine is much better than the TV version! Some very nice stuff.

Both are better than a lot of stuff out there. Shows unfortunately can't show near as much as we'd all like, even the magazines short it out a bit.

I had mentioned to a couple of main stream motorcycle media editors that they should set up their subscriptions to access a portion of their websites with much more content on projects and features. More detail that they can't afford to print. Not so sure they did any more than post more pictures.

Cafe Racer TV is a pretty decent show. Like any bike or car show where there are projects, not every one will be appreciated by everyone nor will every one be a success. Kind of like the old saying supposedly from Lincoln - You can please some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time.

I'll take Cafe Racer over any of the OCC shows and some of the other chopper shows. I did like Biker Build Off or whatever it was except for the fact that the bikes were so useless. The only one that was totally engrossing for me was the one with Indian Larry with his bike.

I didn't get to see the shows, but I understand the CR TV covered vintage 350 racer build that was run at Mid Ohio. The rider is a friend of mine. That is the kind of stuff I wish there was more of out there.

The Rokon also was running around the infield and entrance road at Mid Ohio Vintage Days. Kind of neat. With the right gearing it might just run out pretty good.

By the way, talk about "duh". The guy who built the bike, that was telling Sackett how to start that XL600 didn't have a clue. Those things have an auto compression release. The starting technique is simple. Almost like doing an SR500, but no compression release lever need be pulled. The rider rolls the engine to TDC compression with the kick starter, then lets the lever all the way to the top - engaging the auto comp release - then kicks through with a full strong effort. No slap kicks. With that, they start fairly easily. Used to selll them and start them...
