    Girlies Battleground Phoenix. It sounds worse than OCC at its worst. Or how to end a custom motorcycle building career…

    In this video, the kind of attitude that bikers hate and giving such a bad image to the true professionals of the industry.

    I hear ya.
    But i doubt the producers of this tripe would know “class” if it kick-em in the ass.

    Glad I saw the above preview. Made it an easy decision on skipping the rest of the show.

    Not bad….should stir up new interest…addition business for shops…more customers

  11. 11 Jusmecuz Jul 2nd, 2014 at 10:41 am

    it should stir up some interest alright… interest to find something else to watch.

    Maybe the LD’s can come rumble with these cool guys? BAHAHAHAA what a silly joke.

    The 1st part of the show where Yaffe acts as he has been copied is scripted (notice that they don’t show you the copied part, of course). As a matter of facts several vendors have complained that he was copying their parts. All the builders except one (the youngest one, I forgot his name) looked as ” baby boomers with a big ego problem. Will not watch more of this circus.

  14. 14 Brenda Scott Jul 2nd, 2014 at 11:05 am

    Horrible representation of bike building.

  15. 15 Bud L. Jul 2nd, 2014 at 11:18 am

    Buster, I was thinking the same thing. Looks like the used the writer from the Devil’s Ride.

  16. 16 Doug Jul 2nd, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    “History” Channel ?

    There’s so much interesting history to be told and you produce this garbage?

    “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it”.

    History Channel – you have the ability to get all walks of life from a vast age range interested in History if you produce quality programs.

    Didn’t get to watch the show last night but I did set my DVR to get it & all of the future shows
    Here’s why:
    I’ve met Paul Yaffe at least a dozen time & each time he’s been gracious enough to give me a bunch of good interviews . He didn’t have to, but he took time out to share his insights of the industry with me.
    Been nice enough every time I’ve talked with him at the Easyriders Bike show in Columbus or the Rodeo in Chillicothe Oh.
    I was introduced to John Shope once at the V-Twin Expo by a fellow motorcycle writer/former editor
    whom I highly respect in the industry. Did not get a chance to interview him but this was just before Sinister (now Dirty Bird) exploded. His work has been everywhere, in LOTS of magazines all over & it is pretty damn trick. Having read & done my research, the man has been through some serious chit in his lifetime.Seems at the time I met him that he was down to earth & keeping it real.
    Len Edmonson and Azzkikr Customs, I’ve have not had the pleasure of meeting yet. but again his work is all through the magazines & his Dlux bagger parts line is taking off in a lot of circles.
    I’ve only seen/read a little about Voodoo and Hatred Customs.So I know/met a couple of these guys and respect their work. As I stated before, its got to be better than most of the chit on TV these days.
    Gotta wonder though, Phoenix is such a hotbed of builders where are Nick Trask and Jim Nasi ???

  18. 18 Darry Wagner Jul 2nd, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    The show? Drama queen Yaffe at his worst acting. John shope not far behind. Jim Nasi? Rumor is that he refused to act like a clown and to say the bad boy scripted lines of the production. Congrats to him.

  19. 19 Frank Pence Jul 2nd, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    Bad looking builders building ugly bikes. Is it worth a tv show???

  20. 20 1550tc Jul 3rd, 2014 at 5:18 pm

    JIM NASI, glad to see your not on this show…………..

    You have too much class and are a very humble down to earth guy to be on this TV GONG show!!

    Jenkins wow does he look different, cant wait to see Shope punch somebody out :), he is living the dream, cant wait to see him in 40 years at some AZ geezers palace, doing up some super cool 50 inch wheelschairs :)

  21. 21 mr. yuckly Jul 4th, 2014 at 9:16 am

    so there is nothing redeeming about this show at all??

    i had a choice between Ex Basketball Wives of Portland and Biker Battleground and I chose Battleground. It was entertaining and most importantly it was a show about MOTORCYCLES.

    whatever…

  22. 22 Blackmax Jul 4th, 2014 at 1:33 pm

    I watch the 1st show today…
    Granted the writing seems right out of “The Devil’s/Dumb asses Ride”
    And remember that not of these guys are actors (Sons of Asswipes)
    But it’s still about motorcycles (though not as much building as I was led to believe),
    therefore I stand by my earlier entry, It’s still better than most of the crap on TV these days.
    They say any publicity is good for the industry, we will wait & see ????

  23. 23 Jaychop Jul 4th, 2014 at 9:41 pm

    Thanks History…we were promised a show about custom bike building…but got The Real Housewives instead….Brutal!

    I see some of the comments aren’t too good for the Battleground Phoenix show. There may be a solution if the bike builders and motorcycle aftermarket companies want to tackle it to put them in a better light. Why can’t all of these top American bike builders and companies (even the public) invest in and form their own organization and film production company? This would get rid of all of the unnecessary B.S. and drama. They could create their own biker build off shows, showcase the latest aftermarket parts and trends, do big and small shop tours, do daily live multi-hour bike shows and rallies like Sturgis and Daytona etc., European bike rallies and custom shows etc., include frame building tips, metal workshops, biker movies, prototyping and billet work, carry all types of racing, hang out with custom parts and motorcycle designers, up and coming bike builders, etc.etc. All of the above mentioned ideas could include Europe and Australia etc. Actually, with so much going on in the world of motorcycling, you could probably create a 24 hour a day motorcycle channel that may be sold around the world.

    Just a thought!

    RE:

    -No-
    As long as there is a business case for selling T-shirts to people who are too lame to get away from the TV, this sort of “entertainment” will continue. They can’t afford the buy-in so they become TV voyeurs.

    Face it.
    It used to be that those who couldn’t afford a scooter of any kind spent their time hunting down old used, cheep parts and learned how to build their own bikes. You did that over and over again. Each successive bike got better as your tool collection and skill increased. And you were damned proud of what you were riding (no matter what it was or how it looked).

    It was called “paying your dues.”
    And the “industry” was built around supplying parts for many of those builds.
    But it seems today is all about instant-gratification.
    I-everything, wannabe-road-worriors just aren’t the rugged individuals that showed the world how really cool motorcycling can be.

    And they expect OhBummer will take care of Everything…. :-(

    …. (like most of the older guys had to do)

    Too corny, too much fake attitude , throwing office equipment, and the loud mouth shouting ” go ahead hit me, I’ll give the first three punches” I know a few guys who would have him knocked cold before he got to the three punches part.

  27. 27 Freddie_ray Jul 9th, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    I read this quote years ago in a bike mag about OCC and its appropriate here: Good for business but bad for motorcycles. The same goes for that phony bike off show. I’m tired of the cycle dramas. The throwing parts across the shop etc. I rather watch the boring details of building a bike. To me these jerks have no soul to be portrait in such a fashion. I really glad that Nassi didn’t get caught in this Crap!!!!
