What show am I thinking of?

Hi guys, I'm vaguely remembering a show and I'd like to know what it is. The premise sounds almost exactly like M.A.S.K., but I'm fairly certain it was a live-action show. Anyway, it involves this team of heroes that all have a special vehicle with some sort of special power. These vehicles may or may not have been able to morph into something else, I'm not sure. Also they flew around in a huge plane.

Original Knight Rider-ish era, I think.. I stumbled across the show Viper, but I'm almost sure there were guys with motorbikes as well.

So, uh.. Anyone?

    Thunderbirds? Although that's a little older than Knight Rider...

    There was a season of Power Rangers that had vehicles that morphed into a mega robot thingy, kinda like a bad voltron type power ranger hybrid.

    Hm, I don't think it was puppets, although it does sounds a lot like Thunderbirds.

    And it wasn't Power Rangers unless they were in civilian clothes in the segments I remember.

    You gotta help jog some memories here. What kind of special powers did the vehicles have? Was there a pet? What kind of bad guys were there? Subplots? Love interests? Anything you can remember?

    If you're not positive that it was live action, I'm going to throw out G-Force/Battle of the Planets, which is Japanese animation from the '70s.

    - Team of heroes
    - Everyone had their own vehicles that morphed into fighty vehicles
    - Flew around in a big plane, which turned fiery when needed
    - Hung around in civilian clothes doing '70s things when not on mission
    - Had signal watches, like MASK

    There was a show called The Highway Men in the late 80s-early-90s (I'm just not sure on the year). Motorcycles definitely appeared, and the main guys were generally in civilian garb. They drove a big-ass truck that didn't exactly turn into anything, but it could open up in different ways to reveal a helicopter, or car, or motorcycle as I recall. It kinda-sorta fits your description.

    Should have been a rock star.

    They got around in a plane and there were special vehicles - including a pair of motorbikes. I could be wrong since you put at the original Knight Rider era, but it's the only show I can think of that fits the criteria.

    By all accounts, that's probably a good thing. :mrgreen:

    Honestly, you're not the only one. What I wrote above is pretty much the full sum of my memories regarding that show. About the only episode I have even a dim recollection of is the one where KARR showed up.

    I have to thank you, I remembered this series too but nobody else I asked about it did. I was beginning to wonder if I was going crazy.

    Because of this thread I have that robot chicken M.A.S.K. theme stuck in my head:

    M.A.S.K.! They have helicopters that turn into smaller helicopters...
