    Anyone see the first episode of Henry Cole's new series last night?
    Rode a CCM Spitfire from Aberystwyth to the Devils Bridge and then on to Rhayader - a place familiar to us on last years GMU!
    He then went on to the Claerwen Reservoir, past Gareg-duu-reservoir, the one we visited. :cool:

    I have been watching his other bike trips but yet to watch the latest. Was hoping to go to Aberystwyth this Monday but looks like I will have to delay it for next bank hol monday.

    I’ve watched the motorbike show for quite a few series now, including his specials.
    I must say they’re not bad to watch, although Henry Cole is a bit of a dick sometimes. I’ve got the new series on TiVo series link so will be watching; it’ll be nice to see some familiar places he’s been if he’s done Devils Bridge and around.

    He can be a bit of a tw*t at times but no one else seems interested in making shows about bikes and he's a good ambassador for biking.

    I loved that gold star. Another dream walking into a shed or barn and finding something similar.

    Last bank holiday weekend Aber was packed with bikes, I noticed a Suzuki RE5 parked up amongst them, no camera to hand unfortunately.

    Watched it yesterday, although HC is a bit smug and irritating it’s still the best motorcycle show on Telly.

    Wish he'd include the letter T in motor cycle, Potter, etc. when speaking

    It is irritating, especially when he was educated at Eton. It’s as if thinks it all needs to be dumbed down a bit, and he needs to speak in pseudo estuary to appeal to bikers. Actually makes him sound like a bit of a twat.

    Sure we've been here before, think we decided last time that he's a bit of a knob, but at least bikes on telly :expressionless:

    I’ve just watched the first of the new series. A little disappointed as I saw that it was from Devils bridge, but it turned out to be some backwater one in Wales, not the far superior one in sunny Cumbria! :p

    I find the motorbike show format* a little annoying, and Henry can be irritating at times (my wife thinks I'm both annoying and irritating, so I can't really criticise), but it's a very comforting program to watch.

    Thanks for letting us know it's on.

    *telling us what's going to be on the show, doing the piece, then telling us what we've seen, in short attention span bursts.
