Ok I'd like to hear some opinions.I've seen every episode of The Devil's Ride on Discovery Channel from the beginning.I've always made jokes about it,because it really seems like a daytime soap on two wheels.I've even tweeted Jason Hervey,the producer and also some of the members(actors?)kind of joking how it seems so out there to be real.I get the usual insulting tweets back.Now being the guy who lives 2 miles from where they film Amish Mafia,which I know is highly embellished.I've tweeted my disappointment to both the producer and Discovery channel on it's failure to create a real and true and accurate documentary on Lancaster County PA and the Amish people.
Anyways, in The Devil's Ride, if you haven't seen it,the two rival clubs(not 1%er clubs)basically have a beef that started with using the same colors. In the new season, they've ramped it up, and Fuzzy, a leader of a "well known and huge 1%er club" has told them they need to get their shit together in 30 days or they are taking all of their cuts.Because they are giving a negative light to the motorcycle community
In the latest two episodes, there have been kidnappings,fights, even beatings with baseball bats....In the previous season, Sin Mob dragged the prospect's of Laughing Devil's motorcycle around a parking lot...this motorcycle was obviously an older Honda.Not a Harley.Was it a coincidence that he had some beater bike there that night?Or was it staged but they didn't have the budget to destroy a Harley?
How real is this?Why would anyone assault,kidnap,steal bikes,while being filmed for national tv...unless it's a scripted tv show and they are paid actors?Why would a leader of a well known 1%er club be seen on a national tv show?A tv show that looks like adults acting like kids in the playground when one took another's toy?
I don't know much about clubs,and I'd never join one,I don't have the ambition to be that loyal to a club.I know +Tina Walker
has written a few times about her Dad and his club in her blog.So I'd like ot hear your opinion and anyone else's about this tv show.
I know this was long,sorry,I'm just curious because some of these reality shows are so ridiculous.I drive a semitruck and just about every show about that subject is freakin laughable,I watch purely for the ridiculousness of it.
