New Full Throttle Saloon Show Airs Tomorrow on Destination America

MotorcycleUSA Staff | November 30, 2015

The new, four-episode series of the Full Throttle Saloon television show airs tomorrow night on a new network, Destination America. The premiere episode debuts December 1 at 10/9 Central. Footage for the new show includes scenes from both the 2014 Sturgis Rally and last summer’s epic 75th celebration. On the final episode of the four-part series, titled Full Throttle Fire: Rise from the Ashes, Michael and Angie Ballard and Jesse James Dupree will announce whether or not they will rebuild the self-anointed “World’s Largest Biker Bar” after it burnt to the ground back in September.

The original Full Throttle Saloon series ran for five years on truTV, bringing a glimpse of the shenanigans that go down at the popular biker bar in Sturgis to common households across America. It also showed the trials and tribulations that come along with running such an establishment.
