November 22, 2021 – On December 7, 2021, the FranceTV film crew will be in Kingman, AZ to film a segment for their television show, Échappées Belles, hosted by Ismaël Khelifa.  The production team will be working with Thunder-Rode Motorcycle Accessories in downtown Kingman to film the segment which will be based on Route 66 and Bikers.

Thunder-Rode Motorcycle Accessories held submissions for a passionate biker who loves Route 66 and would love to share their passion of The Mother Road with Ismaël on the open road.  Submissions were sought through Thunder-Rode’s social media pages and newsletter subscribers.   Local motorcycle enthusiasts submitted their information for the once-in-a-lifetime chance to take the star presenter on the back of their bike from Kingman, AZ to Seligman, AZ.  During the Route 66 motorcycle road Échappées Belles trip, the FranceTV film crew will be following in separate cars, filming along the way.  The Echappees Belles show is looking to capture some down-to-earth interaction between Ismaël Khelifa and local bikers regarding Route 66 in Arizona and how unique and amazing our state’s scenery is along the route.

Initially, the crew was set to film in 2020.  Unfortunately, on the day of filming, the entire crew was called back to France due to the pandemic.  This year, they are heading back and excited to be filming once again in Kingman, AZ with several local Harley-Davidson motorcycle enthusiasts.

The FranceTV film crew will be in Kingman on December 7, 2021 to film the Échappées Belles show segment with Thunder-Rode Motorcycle Accessories.  The show segment will help build Kingman’s tourism in the French market.
