Top Gear Vietnam

The Vietnam episode was one of the best things I have seen on TV in a long time.

I was laughing right last night watching that - The Blonde was hot - "He's going to Die" - Awesome!

I liked when the bike didn't have the power to make it up the hill with all the semi's honking.

You wanna see my itinerary?

That was a really great episode, it aired quite a while back though.

Not on easy TV.


I like that Jeremy would just drop the Vespa every time he stopped.

yeah it was on BBC America but they have to edit the show down to fit int he allotted time slot. so you miss some of the shows since they dont have commercials in England on the BBC

As for non bike episodes, I liked the one where they drove the Vette, Caddy and Challenger to Bonneville. The part were Jeremy takes the RV on the salt cracked me up.
