I do tend to agree, they are the main reason I watch.

I think he’s a superb ambassador for motorcycling.

Ive read all his books and watch everything he does.

I think he could bring out a very popular restoration series following the builds he’s done in every series of the motorbike show rather than just a few moments here and there.

Go Henry…:+1:

I do find him annoying but more in a “bless him, he’s harmless” sort of way. :wink:

Him and Clarkson are from the same mould, Very good at giving people what they want.

Personally, listen right ( :wink:) , i do find him a bit irritating but as @geoffb said above, you can’t ignore the passion he gives and the projects he has.
Nice to also see sam and Allan.
Also, he does show museums and other gaffs that I’d never even heard about.
Anyone who puts bikes on tv? :ok_hand:

I would say they are very different IMO

It’s this look that is worn and frozen on every time he rides - even when the rest of him suggests he’s not having the very best time.

Coming up…

I think they are both in it for the money, are genuinely interested, use others to popularize their shows, use their shows to live their dreams.

I agree with that except using others for popularity… I would say Clarkson himself is the main draw to his programs.

He’s all we’ve got :scream: I do like the banter between the usual suspects and you can’t knock his enthusiasm. He does tend to pick some cheesy groups to meet on the show that you can’t help but think don’t do a lot for bikers image with the wider public who might be watching. I always record it so if there’s anything I don’t like it’s just FF to the next bit. Better to have him on the box than not IMO. Jellybean is the real star.

I don’t particularly like “his style”…but agree harmless enough,.and there’s.nothing else like it. That said…as with all these sorts of programs…I simply can not stand the format.

In an hour’s TV there’s about 36mins of actual ‘content’…the rest is recap, coming next, garbage to camera before an item…and of course breaks. Can’t stand it.

I think the reason for this sort of format is to keep your attention. I’m afraid in my case it has the opposite effect.

I will only watch the series on record I’m afraid.
Usual advertising reasons…
