Bike mad presenter Henry Cole heads off yet again into the wilds of America. This time riding America’s Wild West from San Francisco across California into Nevada, up through Idaho and Wyoming through Yellowstone national park to journey’s end in Billings Montana. On this 1500 mile ride Henry delights in the vast array of cultures, landscapes and characters he meets along the way and that make up the true dichotomy of this incredible adventure. From Stage Coach drivers, real Cowboys, native Americans, and bike gangs to Ferrari racers, mad truck collectors, total eccentrics and millionaire ranch owners. All this aboard the most ludicrous American Chop he’s ever ridden.
No doubt a little saddle sore from covering over 25,000 in the US on his hog, Henry takes time out to reflect on his amazing American adventures. Looking back at the highlights and featuring brand new unseen footage, including an interview with legendary chopper builder Eddie Trotter, Henry gets misty-eyed at thoughts of travelling Route 66, Highway 1 and even Death Valley. If you're crazy enough to want to follow in his tyre tracks, he'll even tell you how.
