" Maine Pride. Maine Biker. "
Like most made for TV programs there are no redeeming qualities to it and ones time would be better spent doing almost anything else. Unfortunately if one takes a good look around, or quick glance for that matter, it's obvious the American public as a whole prefers mindless entertainment as opposed to educational enlightenment.
you guys must be too old to enjoy a good tv show.
Yes I am too old for a good snow. I have had enough snow and I am ready for Spring dammit!
It's the best action soap opera on TV. It has motorcycles. But unfortunately my mother won't let me stay up past my bedtime to watch it.
Yea, but you know you tape it and watch it when mother isn't around. Like you said it has motorcycles !!!!

I do watch the show. I've received the past 2 seasons disk set for christmas. I find it to be entertaining but a bit far fetched at times. Some of the comments I've heard on how it feeds the negative stereotype of motorcyclist may be true, but in my opinion, until those opinionated folks learn 1st. hand through real life experiences that these profiles for the most part are a figment of their imagination, then it will continue. Even the riders that are hilighted in a positive way on RIDIN' STEEL are profiled. It isn't until an individual meets these riders face to face and realizes that their just normal folks that like to ride that they look at things a little differently. Maybe what we all ought to do is get rid of all the leather gear and black t's and start riding in suits.
I recently film a presentation for my local Historical Society here in Bath. The topic of RIDIN' STEEL was brought up by the woman that hired me. She was very complimentive and recognized what we are striving for. So little by little changes of opinions can occur, but it would'nt take much to set us back. In our society, in spite of all the education on discrimination, we as a people love to label others.
