500 2 stroke Dirtbike on Mythbusters

Got this in an email today.

Service Honda's legendary 500AF is being featured on the hit TV show Mythbusters, June 5th at 9:00 p.m. Be sure to check your local TV station listings, grab some snacks and watch this

Edit: there are 2 episodes 8:00 pm and 9:00pm
Looks like this is the 8:00 one but I'm grabbing both.
Discovery channel is 278 on Directv. not sure for others.

It wasn't very exciting, but my buddy AJ at Service Honda got some great mainstream exposure for his bad ass creation, so I liked it.

I think it was geared more toward people that don't know anything about bikes. Anybody that has seen Crusty Demons or knows who Travis Pastrana is knows the answer to the myth.

Eh, it was ok.

Was fun seeing how they went about testing things and such.
Cool seeing/ hearing a wound up 2 stroke 500 conversion on TV.

That said, It doesn't take that much to entertain me.
If it has a motorcycle, fast car or pretty girl on it I'll usually watch
