Dallas-based Banned Breed Productions, a television production company, has announced the production of "2 Wheel Passport," a new television travel series that will take viewers to various scenic destinations across the United States on a motorcycle.

"2 Wheel Passport" was initially broadcasted and a hit travel/destination program in Europe. Banned Breed Productions will begin filming "2 Wheel Passport" in early 2007 for broadcast in the United States, with plans to eventually televise the show to an international audience in Western Europe, Australia and the United Kingdom. They are working in tandem with London-based Hub TV, the producer of the original European show.

After each episode's initial broadcast, it will be available to watch online and for download onto iPods and MP3s. Route maps, itineraries, GPS coordinates, and restaurant and lodging recommendations will also be available for download to navigation systems, computers and other devices. This allows the viewer to literally take the show with them as they travel to the same destinations and be able to locate specific routes, sights and stopping places that they wish to experience for themselves.

On each one-hour episode, a diverse group of motorcycling enthusiasts will take the viewer on an adventure as they travel to destinations such as the legendary "318 curves in 11 miles" Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, North Carolina, the Texas Hill Country, the Estes Park and Rocky Mountains in Colorado, the 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway between Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks, the majestic West Coast along Pacific Coast Highway, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, the serene New England Coast, and other beautiful, must-see scenic routes throughout the United States.

Each episode is designed to make the most of an area within a specific time frame. Regardless if the viewer has just a long weekend, or is visiting the United States for an extended time and wants to experience as many areas as possible, he or she will experience what can be done within these different time frames. Topics included in each episode include:

  • Looking for Adventure - Episode introduction; showcasing the reasons riders visit this destination
  • Weapon of Choice - Which bike is most suited to the terrain
  • Not From Around These Parts - Special motorcycling protocol observed in the area
  • Touring Tip of the Week - Touring advice answering frequently asked questions
