The wait is finally over, Motorcyclist magazine’s On Two Wheels show returns for 2019 and picks up where the old cast left off. For the new season, the show doubles down on talent, er, or lack thereof, with the cast growing to four hosts.

In episode one, these miscreants introduce themselves to the YouTube world before settling into a set of challenges aboard a hodgepodge of motorcycles. To make things interesting, each of the guys rides a different type of machine that they claim best represents their personality and genre of riding they enjoy most.
Their motorcycles range from a friendly and affordable 286cc-powered Honda CB300R to a supercharged 998cc Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX sport-touring bike. Then there’s a 700-plus-pound Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic and a motorcycle that really isn’t even a motorcycle: the three-wheel-equipped and Russian-made Ural.
The first challenge sees the boys drag race on a private airstrip. Of course, chaos ensues. Let’s just say horsepower isn’t everything…
Because everyone loves adventure (well, almost everyone) the guys load their bikes with camping equipment. As you’d expect, some struggle more than others. On the way to camp they detour across a curvy hillside fire road. Things go sideways for all of them. Does everyone stay upright? Tune in to find out.
For the third challenge, the guys battle it out at the gas pump, with a game of “fuel mileage chicken,” a contest seemingly built for Waheed’s fuel-sipping CB. But will Gilbert and Gales outmuscle him? Will Dawes’ use the Ural’s passenger accommodation to carry an extra jug of fuel? Stay tuned for a surprise. After more wrong turns than the guys will likely admit they arrive at camp for the evening.
