Royal Enfield dealer and his mother
star in reality TV show on truTV

Royal Enfield dealer Rick Fairless is the owner of Strokers Dallas, a combination Texas motorcycle shop, tattoo parlor and biker bar. He and his 71-year-old mother are the stars of "Ma's Roadhouse," a riotous (and raunchy) "reality" television show.

The third episode appears tonight at 9 on truTV (the new name for Court TV). The show features Rick's taste in over-the-top choppers, his wife, daughter, and plenty of babes in bikinis.

Look closely and you might spot a Royal Enfield motorcycle.

"Last week we got a bit of visual exposure and will get more as the series moves on," Royal Enfield USA President Kevin Mahoney told me. "Not big, but something. He is a real character and a nice guy. I have been there and can vouch for the reality of the show."

Here's truTV's summary of the show:

"Despite the family squabbles and demanding clients, Rick manages to oversee a shop that, on a weekly basis, creates and modifies stunning, one-of-a-kind choppers, ape hangers, and bikes. Whether it's family drama, a ticking deadline to trick out a six-figure motorcycle, or a huge party to throw, there is always something going on at Strokers, and Rick is always there to make it happen."

Tonight's episode: "It’s the day of the Strokers Ink Anniversary bash, and Rick discovers evidence that a tattoo artist he once fired is now trying to steal his customers. To complicate matters, a health inspector pops in for a surprise visit, prompting a confrontation with Ma. To prevent the place from being shut down, Rick recruits Strokers poster girl, Debbie to smooth things over."

It's not supposed to be Masterpiece Theater, OK?
