I think sometimes the fame of the TV show has overshadowed the fact that these are guys who love to build badass motorcycles. The Discovery channel built them into characters that are so typecast. I wonder if they are different when the "reality show" crew is not around.
As I was looking around the store, I kept thinking "Kiss"... Not the verb, the band! These guys have their names and faces on everything from coffee mugs to Pez dispensers. What a marketing machine! Of course I bought my T-shirts and other souvenirs... What kind of fan would I be otherwise? ;-)
