My roomate found this on his R1 forum. MTV "True Life" Episode "I am an Urban Street Bike Warrior". Gonna kick off May 10th 2004.

Great now we are going to get even more negative opinions of sportbikes. It started with BikerBoyz then Torque added fuel to the fire and I'm sure MTV will add more fuel to the fire.

MTV is gonna have to show all the negative stuff, that's what gets ratings. No one wants to see some guy just putting down the street on his Busa, people want to see him doing 180+mph, or see guys doing wheelies on their gixxer 1k's.

Hopefully they show the stunt competitions, where it is all done in safe enviornments.

Who cares...people are gunna think negativly about sport bikes regardless of that TV show...or Biker Boyz or Tourqe...I'd like to meet the person who watches Too Fast Too Furious...or The Fast and the Furious...Biker Boyz, or Tourqe and thinks that that's how things are actually thrown down in real life...

I'm excited for it, it's supposed to be about Stunt Wars...and I think that they're just gunna follow around 3 or 5 stunt teams through out the competition. If I rember correctly.

I'm excited to watch it...there needs to be more of that stuff on TV.

On stuntlife.com they were talking about this. It is a few stunt groups that are getting ready for competition, and they just film them preparing.

Oh my goodness.

I got out of the "import scene" because I wanted to find a more mature and responsible hobby...and this?

I guess you can't escape yellow journalism. *sigh* :(

I think it should be good and it shouldn't have to much of a negative impact I doubt MTV would air anything Illegal such as street racing or street stuntin. But then again they did show Janets Titty!

As others said, thet aired a story about these kids who street raced their import for cash. I think it was "True Life, I'm a street racer". <---something like that.

I just remember the kid lost the race and f-ed up his car real bad.

The folk in corp. America have one thing on their minds... $$$

MTV is known to bring different views to the table, some contriversal, even illegal. But they do so in a "news" related sence. In other words, they are reporting, rather than promoting.

They will show illegal stuff, squids, crashes and hot chicks. Their idea is of course ratings, and selling advertising spots (dont be supprised if you see a commercial for honda or yamaha). But, one thing they do well, and i give credit where credit is due, they make the dangerous and illegal scenes seem dangerous and illegal. They dont make them seem fun and exciting.

Just like in Biker Boyz when Smoke scolded some kid for thinking about riding away without a helmet, it's an indirect good thing.
