End is near
Success has taken its toll. The creative forces and (the guys who really do the work) are leaving the show. This is creating a vaccuum that will consume the company. Vinny and Cody have started their own shop nearby called V Force Customs and will soon gain national attention I'm sure. I bet Rick will soon follow and join them. Show is becoming less inspired, the designs are less unique and special, and the yelling and screaming is now done strictly for sake of doing it and is quite transparent. They should have taken better care of the guys that got them there.
I miss Vinnie
The show still has a good dose of anger and destruction, along with some pretty cool bikes, but Vinnie's departure was symptomatic of a broader change. The Tuttles' success seems to have gone to their heads and the exchanges are now more generic. The Tuttles are enjoying their wealth anyone would, but this makes the show less interesting/original. The Klipsch bike build was symbolic of their complacency and declining creativity. A speaker box behind the oil tank does not a rushed build save, and the proof was in the pudding. I also miss the Mikey/Vinnie dynamic. Still, a mildly entertaining 43 minutes.
It was cute for a while
I did get tired of watching a group of what can only be assumed to be mentally challenged folks build motorcycles, actually they build art, not motorcycles. The difference is we never see any serious concerns for engineering principles. Only the "look" is important. Brakes? Balance? turn angles? Nope, not important. But look at this cool chromed part we bolted on to an engine we bought from someone else. I always wondered if they had been sued by someone who actually tried to ride one of their bikes. Fine they make money selling bikes to corporations. Corporations don't always make good decisions (New Coke) As time went on, I watched less and less. Now it is pointless. I believe I saw one of the episodes listed and it isn't good. It may as well be scripted now. No passion. It is now turning into "What we have done with our success" I would pass on this one folks.
