Happy Mr. Happy

He lives!

You may remember a few months back during our 1-year anniversary contests, listener Chad B. won the Mr. Happy puppet.  Chad won for his excellent picture of his favorite gear, which includes his top case’s ability to haul beer and cigars…

Well, Chad has taken the opportunity to send us a few pics proving that Mr. Happy is not only alive and well, but is out there seeing the world and clocking on the miles on his new Yamaha Zuma scooter. He also looks like he’s having fun on the mini racing circuit with Chad’s daughter and her go-cart.

Rock on, Mr. Happy. And Chad, thanks for the excellent pics!

Episode 57: A Poppin’ Good Time

Episode 57

A Poppin’ Good Time

In this episode, Chris’s mic pops. A lot. Then we talk about the rave reviews of the Triumph Tiger 800 family, and James tells Chris how wrong he is about the apparent and rumored new Trophy. Chris fights back with more mic pops to no avail; he ends up on the ropes. Fortunately, the guys are distracted by a voice mail and some email feedback, and the whole mess is rescued when Swingset drops by to talk about his new Dual Sport Podcast and why you should never hang around a certain type of person or two, and why you shouldn’t ride your dual sport motorcycle to a children’s playground. Or something like that.

Also, please note, this is the last new episode of The Pace Motorcycle Podcast for 2010. We’ll be back after a break for the holidays in early January with fresh content, new interviews and a whole new list of things to talk about… Maybe Honda will release a new bike to talk about, eh?

Happy Holidays, ride safe and take care everyone. And thank you for a great year of interaction with The Pace. You guys rock!

Episode 56: Who sold it for $87.50?

Ok, busy week. I’m gonna break this down quickly. We rant, speculate wildly, make fun of of that guy from Full House and then we rant some more. We’ve also included the rest of our chat with Prubert and we have a top 10 list from Doug at the Tilted Horizons blog.

Episode 55: What are you getting me for Christmas?

Ep 55 for Dec 5th, 2010
Happy Holidays!!!

With a visit and a little help from Prubert Claus, James & I bring you some selections from our Holiday Gift List. We highlight some things that we have and can recommend, as well as make some suggestions that we… er… your loved ones would like to see under the tree. With our… uh… the listeners’ best interests in mind, we try to offer some suggestions that span the range of usefulness and silly, and at all the typical price points. Just for the record, I’m going to need tires by spring and I’m thinking a nice set of Pilot Road 2s in your standard 120/180 pairing would be great. Ya know… as an example.

We also bring you some suggestions from the listeners by way of email and voice mail, and Prubert weighs in with some great additional ideas.

  • Glen Allison suggests heated gear. Any heated gear.
    • “No matter what it is, my wife bought me a heated jacket and it’s the greatest gift ever (rivals the birth of my son) I vote any heated gear.”

Music is by The Legendary O’Lantern Brothers and Twisted Sister, and is provided by MusicAlley.com.

Get ‘em while they’re hot

In time for gift giving season, I’ve got a $10 gift certificate (no exp date) and a 10% off (until Dec 23) for New Enough (dot com). The first two people to call the voice mail line (484-748-0042) and give us some good gift ideas to include in this week’s show will get one of these. Expect your voice mail to be played on the show, and please remember the 3 minute limit on the voice mail.

Ready… set… GO!
