This started out on ChiVinMoto and then on to NYCvinMoto so bear with me.

Everyone should chime in if they want to see something decent and Moto related on cable. Copied and amended from the original post on ChiVinMoto:

http://www.motorcyclechannel.tv/home.html

This is supposed to launch June 2007. They are saying they have gotten
input about what people DO NOT want to see (carbon copy of the crumby
stuff on discovery, stunts, etc), but they want to hear what people DO
want to see.

I can't find an address to email them to tell them I want to see shows
about vintage bikes. Anyone out there know anything about this and know how to contact these
folks ?

RickL thinks they need to do a show about IoGTT or something that would be Chi, and Vin. I'd like to see something on the MotoGiro or maybe a weekly program showing highlights from the different vintage races? How about an 'Antiques Roadshow' type program that just follows swap meets? Yeah, thats the ticket. VinMoto TV!

If anyone can figure out HOW to contact these people post it here!

I wanna see stunts!!!!!

I didn't mind the Discovery channel stuff - the early jessie james and Billy Lane stuff was cool - the tuttles and OCC was a joke, but they were dicks before they ever got a TV show (ask me about my expirence at Marcus Dariy sometime).

Really if you are going to do an all motorcycle channel then cover all aspects of motorcycles, not just racing. I love MotoGP and IOM stuff but the rest I don't really care too much (although I would watch drag racing and flat track if it were on). The discover channle stuff and the stunts is stuff that has a high visual impact and gets good ratings - why not if it will bring more people into the fold.

Hi guys, I've been lurking for a while and thought this might be a good place for my first post.

At this point, I would welcome just about anything motorcycle related. There is so much out there that would make good viewing in my opinion. I'd like to see in addition to what has been said:

Racer bios, like of those that were the greats, Wayne Rainey, Eddie Lawson, Mick Doohan, Foggy, etc......... The list goes on and on. Or even movie style like The World's Fastest Indian.

Touring on the great twisties of the world.

Bike build ups other than choppers. I'm sure some of Carpy's build ups would make some good veiwing, as well as many others. Some of the chopper build ups are entertaining, but something else would be a treat.

The history of each motorcycle manufacturer.

With what has been listed here collectively, there's a couple of years of programming right there.
