Plot Synopsis

Two long-time friends with a passion for food and motorcycles bike across the United States, learning folklore and age-old customs as they hunt, gather, cook and eat with the locals. Paul Patranella is a four-star classically trained French chef who studied at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Austin, TX; Bill Allen is a well-known motorcycle mechanic and owner of Bill Allen Motorcycle Company in central Texas. Together, they travel from the southern Louisiana coast to South Carolina's Low Country and from the Great Smokey Mountains to central Oklahoma. Along the way, in order to eat, they must spear bullfrogs, trawl for shrimp, capture gators with a cross bow, track down wild boars, harvest wheat for beer, and do just about anything to put food and drink on the table. History aired a sneak peek of HAIRY BIKERS on Monday, October 10, 2011 at 11pm ET, before showing the official series premiere four days later in its regular time slot.
