Episode 182: It’s not entry level

Episode 182 - It’s not entry level September 9, 2014 ThePaceFINAL-300x116
It’s supercharged and it revs. It’s the Kawasaki Ninja H2. This ain’t your daddy’s Widowmaker. KTM gives us a real, honest to goodness small displacement sport bike, and it is good. CSC is bringing us a ~$3500 adventure bike, and on paper it looks like a solid package. DMG out, Krave in: AMA gets fresh blood, and gosh-n-golly, a racer is at the helm. This should be very good news for American motorcycle racing going forward. Ever want a Brammo electric bike, but the price scared you away? Well, lucky you… the scary parts got a lot less scary!

Episode 107: It’s weather prooth. March 25, 2012
This week the guys bring you a plethora of... well, they talk a lot. Home modified iPhone mounts. GPS it with Navigon: redux. James’ Sena saga may finally be over. Here’s hoping. April is the AMA’s Get Out And Ride Month, which means The Pace’s loyal listeners are just doing what they do every day. Right? RIGHT? Get out and ride. Go on, get out of here, kid. Triumph is 110 years old. Bonnie doesn’t look a day over 60, and man oh man, does she wear it well. Want to get an idea of how you’ll sit on a couple of hundred bikes? Hit up Cycle-Ergo.com and check out the comparisons. Very nice feature. Armored underwear is awesome, and Knox has what you need. The guys follow up the news with some listener questions and feedback. News:
Listener questions:
  • Roland Cannon - Regarding tubeless tire changes: What’s necessary?
  • James from MA - What sport-tour(able) bike should replace the CBR?

Episode 97: Bump start the Earth

Episode 97 - Bump start the Earth December 25, 2011
Merry Christmas!!! Today the guys put down the egg nog (mixed with bourbon, right?) and talk turkey... er... bikes and stuff. It’s their gift to you. Yule love it. Stay present for the whole show. Not to put too fine a poinsettia on things, but the guys wrap up the news, and shepherd the information, while you pine away, waiting to greet the riding season. Jolly & Merry and stuff... Goodness, that’s just awful. Anyway, after the news, the guys are dashing into feedback, blitzen their way to the end, then turn off the recorders and enjoy a silent night. Ugh... horrible. Just terrible. Links: Feedback: Brewery information from Christian... Of course, you can make your destinations breweries. For example, Russian River Brewery in Santa Rosa, California is one of them, with a Travelodge nearby you'll be able to sample some of the most incredible Belgian's in the world. Having been to Belgium a few times, that's saying a lot. Plus you're in northern California .. the best place in the world to ride a motorcycle. Another great place in northern Cali is the Eel River brewing company in Fortuna. There are hotels and a campground walking distance. But the best part is that this is where you can launch to some of the best roads in the country - 36, 96, 299, etc or down the coast on 101 to the Avenue of Giants, then to Hwy 1 and Ft. Bragg. There are some incredible roads in this area. We tend to stay in Fortuna a couple nights in a row so we can ditch the luggage and ride loops unencumbered. Montreal has Dieu De Ciel, and I seem to recall they offer lodging too. But this is all about the beer, and these guys have made some of the best quadrupel I've tasted. Deschutes Brewing Co. in Bend, Oregon is a great stop before or after crossing the desert. Stay at the Old St Francis School too, which is walking distance from the brewpub, and they brew their own as well. New Glarus, in New Glarus, Wisconsin is near some excellent roads in a swiss village knockoff (note that the Glarner Stube is where you sample the beer and eat german food). Or the Great Dane Brewing Co. in Madison, Wisconsin.

Episode 66: We’ve all seen Get Smart

This week we talk about Chris's new Zook, deliver some good news from HD, some bad news from Suzuki and we try real hard not to pick on Honda too much. Zero has a new bike, L.A. has a new plan and we have Scott Bolton's AMA season Preview.

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. Links
