If you can't get or miss the TV show, these aren't too bad, but the show speaks with the workers, goes behind the scenes, has lots of close-ups, gets into the design, etc.
It even shows some vintage footage and the 2002 fire damage.
However, in a pinch, YouTube gives you a good sense of the assembly.

Yes, Dale seems to be absent right now. I hope he gets to see the show since he has a T-bird.
Poor Dave over there in darkest Africa probably won't get to see it and we're probably driving him crazy with all this chatter:y2:

I guess Africa is too dark for Speed to shine through!

When I came in last night from my ballgame my sons were watching the show. My oldest had come in from college for the weekend and the first thing he said instead of hi, hello, or even good to see you was; "You're missing a good show about Triumph's.". So I asked "you're recording it, right?" to which he said "nope, got in to the show after it started, but it does come on again in a couple hours."

Good show, now they need to do one on the Tiger, Bonnie, Scrambler, etc.

Yes normally you can watch most thing over a 100 times but the one thing you want to watch just does not come on again. I was on leave for 10 days last week and I really had to battle to find something to watch that I had not seen before :y7:

Yep, thats why i hate cable. They play the same shows over and over. I canceled my cable in '07 and a year and 1/2 later i had to get cable again when i moved because i moved into a studio in the back of a house and part of the agreement was that we all share the cost of cable and internet. Whn i started watching after 1.5 years without it i was shocked that all the programs were still running the same friggin' repeats i saw back then ! Now when i want something to repeat it doesn't....unbelievable.

I think this is also why they do so many repeats because of all the time zones it is viewed in
