I was flipping channels and stopped on OCC (not a show I usually watch)... they were at the Flow factory demoing some ultra high pressure paint stripping system.. Anyways, there was this cherry looking older Concours or Voyager sitting next to the demo area and they just destroyed it! Good god that ****ed me off... If it wasn't staged, those guys are the biggest bunch of a**holes I've ever seen!

I saw that last night. I believe it was a beemer. I told my wife the same thing. If that wasn't staged and it had been my bike, I would have come unglued on those guys. They wouldn't have been able to buy their way out of that. I would have had the cops there and pressed charges!

I just hope the guy RAPED them for what they did to it! They need to stick to tearing up their own property. then I can laugh at how stupid they are!

I sure wish I had enough money to enjoy doing those things!

That's what makes me think it was staged.... Do you really think that legal at Discovery Networks is going to let someone use THEIR cameras to record a crime being perpetrated by THEIR talent? or that Flow would think so little of their employees to let 3 visitors destroy an employee's vehicle?

well, discovery is just like any other TV owner...they'll do anything for ratings. As for Flow, I can only hope so since I seem to recall some of their people standing around laughing about it.

I saw it, it looked like a Connie to me too. They do some dome stuff on that show, but the bike didn't have to be ruined like that.

I haven't seen the episode, but it was probably staged. Regardless, I hate to see the destruction of a perfectly good motorcycle. Think of the good times and memories that bike has provided. The dollars that it has kept out of the phychiatrist's and therapist's pockets alone make it (or any bike) valuable.

Gotta remember that shows like OCC are no different than any major network produced series. It's total fiction, and bares no resemble to the "reality" that it claims to be.

Personally I would never damage another persons property. However if I had extreme enough issues with another person. I might in fact damage them. Fair warning to anyone who might want to attack not only my property but anyone elses.

Well, it was "convenient" that it happened to be parked right beside where they were demo'ing the new paint stripping device.

I liked the episode where they made the old harley into a helicopter and pulled it off the roof to see it fly! :)

+1

I've often wondered about Rick as well. He and Vinnie were the only two (getting any airtime anyway) that had any kind of work ethic!

Have you ever seen the one where they go to the scrap yard to have a demolition dirby race? They weld stuff to an old clunker to make it harder to crash, and then two of their employees fight it out in the mud with the cars, while they all stand around and laugh.
I saw them at Carlyle bike rally giving out pictures. Instead of handing them out, they through them into the crowd from the top of a trailer roof, and laughed as people fought each other to get one.
These guys bug me. I don't get their rock star status, their bikes are not that nice.
