The series in the spring was absolutely shoddy, but this series has really renewed my faith in it, brilliant programme. I'm becoming more tolerable of Jeremy as well, although May's dry wit still maintains him as my favourite.

Let them dream son. They've never heard of the 'Flying Finns' this is not the thread to introduce them.

I really want a bike after Vietnam as well, I've always secretly wanted one, but seeing that really sealed it for me.

Damnation, typical. Sorry Finns! I'm obviously just not watching enough rally.

Bikes are awesome for just going around doing stuff, but IMO, as a mode of day-to-day transport, not the best. A way better way to see a country (and it's views) than in a car though if you ask me. (Apart from the luggage aspect).

Yeah I think there's something really romantic about travelling on a bike, (the TG style ones not a Ninja), it's just the lack of protection in a crash that bothers me.

Not much you can do really, Dave's coverage is far from brilliant. Although it's good to see something on British TV. Youtube has some great onboards and shiz though.

Agreed. The Spring series, bar a few moments was almost trying to be as "Top Gear" as possible, and it didn't work.

Hmm, some people are ridicuolously stupid about protective gear, e.g. woman wearing summer dress on bike with nothing else (how stupid do you have to be?!). I like all types, but you're right, a Ninja isn't exactly going to get you admiring the views. I'm beginning to really love the old military ones now actually, ala Steve McQueen's Wehrmacht in the Great Escape, that being the only example I can think of right now, apart from Hammond's in Vietnam.

Hmm, there's a few random channels that seem to show bits now and then. Ah well, will just have to play the PS2 games.

I inserted my foot into my mouth in cringeworthiness. I sort of understand him though, it looked an astonishing country.

Does anyone else think James is the best out of the trio?

I love his quintessential Britishness

the stig and may are the best.

clarky is just clarky, the only clarky............in the WORLD..

Hamster looks like a bird from newcastle I once serviced, so don't really like him that much - he lives near me too.

From the few episodes I saw on the BBC America, it seems to be a good show.

I like the ridiculous challenges they do. Especially the one when they tried to build a cheap police car.
