Episode 177
Honda’s getting a little naked

ThePaceFINAL-300x116

Recorded – 7/13/2014

The guys discuss Honda’s filling-up lineup of vehicles at every size and price point, Suzuki finally upping their naked bike offerings by announcing a GSR1000, EBR’s SX bike… that’s a LOT of torque. The Yamaha FZ07 – is it worth it? And hey, if Harley-Davidson can’t electrify you, who can?

Motorcycle Podcasts

Some of our Facebook regulars have been talking about other motorcycle podcasts that are in their feeds. As it happens, I listen to all of the same shows plus a couple. I thought I’d put a list up for easy reference. In the list below you will find links to the show’s web site, iTunes page and RSS feed.

I would like to share a paraphrased excerpt from the conversation that Chris and I had just prior to recording this episode. It went a little something like this…

 

Me: I know we have a lot of news to catch up on this week AND we need to get caught up on feedback but we have a ton of stuff from Americade. Whatdaya think if we just focus on that and the interview with Lee?

Chris: Ok, I’ll start a show doc for 177 and move everything over.

Me: Great. We’ll do 35 or 40 minutes plus the 25 minute interview and were good.

With that in mind, We proudly present our longest episode ever. All two hours and fifteen minutes of it.
