Episode 114 – Bottom line: We’re just not very good at it.

Episode 114 - Bottom line: we’re just not very good at it. May 27, 2012
This week the guys talk about all sorts of craziness. Audi makes an electric bike. No... the OTHER kind of bike. With pedals. No, not foot pegs... PEDALS. As in, human powered locomotion. I know, crazy... right?
Well, if that's not crazy enough, how about turning your Citroen into a motorcycle in the middle of the desert when it breaks down.  Crazy you say? Well, it's ok. He's French.
But wait, you want MORE crazy? How about an $810 Honda motorcycle...? Crazy enough for you?
And to temper the crazy with a little bit of sanity and good discussion, Joanne the GearChic joins us for talking about summer riding and the gear to do it best.

Episode 113: Repetitive, Silly and Stupid

Episode 112 – Introduction Interruptus!

Episode 112 - Introduction Interruptus May 13, 2012
We’ve got news... Lots and lots of... Ok, that’s just a flat out lie. There’s really not much news, but what we do have is exciting. First, gear for kids! Bilt, Cycle Gear’s house brand, has a full line of gear for kids. Everything from classic Fonzie leather to high-tech textile 4-season gear. Check it out. Also from the “hey, this is pretty cool” files, sales of the Japanese big-four are up. While the numbers we have reflect Japanese domestic sales, anecdotally, this trend seems to be strong here in the USA, too. Also, looking for tires? Avon has a nice rebate on a few popular models[1]. 1 - please note, this isn’t an advertisement or paid endorsement of Avon tires. We’re just reporting the news. Links: Feedback:

RD350 restoration project by Motorcycle Girl

Celeste, aka the Motorcycle Girl has been restoring an RD350 street bike. Below you can find some text and pictures about her restoration. Give it a look. Celeste can be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/celeste.atkinson.5.
I have not taken any recent pictures but enclosed is a link to the facebook album where I have posted some of them.  I bought it in several boxes and have been doing the ground up restoration over the last couple of winters.  The pic of the entire bike in the album is one that I found online so it is not my actual bike.  Tank and plastic parts are out getting painted as we speak and I hope to get the engine in the bike in the next couple of weeks. This model was never available in the US, only Canada so parts are more difficult to source locally.  Many of my parts have had to come from the UK where there is a cult following for this bike.  Interesting too is that Paul Manson(another listener) has one of these bikes too!

Not episode 112 May 6, 2012
We had hoped to get a show out this week, but between work, travel and life situations, the timing just didn't work out. We'll be back next week with a full show, some post-trip chatter, and lots and lots of feedback, and perhaps a GearChic segment. Thanks again for listening!
