    I propose to start a new season and following title:
    American Chopper – New directions
    (Sr. retires and Jr. takes over!)

    Just tuned in to American Chopper, hadn’t found the program untill this morning.
    Being an ex biker chick I think the program is wonderful! Paul Sr. is Hot as Hell!
    Don’t let this program go by the wayside!!

    I think that the show is fake. A soap-opera.

    I can believe a father being so corrupted toward his own family. There is no money or furtune that can do that to his own son. That is why I think that the show is all madeup.

    Sorry but thats the way I see this show. “Jr. is a great son, very creative and talanted designer”.

    The father should be proud of him.

    I think Paul Sr. needs to yell and boss everyone around because he has know idea how to run a business when it comes to breaking rules he’s the king but if anyone else (in his eyes) slacks off he’s a complete fool about the issue. I’m from a neighboring state and have heard tales of Sr. back when he was in school and after he graduated or quit! should I say he spent his spare time in front of the local judge not a smart man!
