James and Chris discuss the cultural phenomenon known as Christopher Walken. Ok, not really; just an honorable mention. It’s a feedback extravaganza this week while the guys get caught up on feedback. James – no, no… not THAT James – had a minor incident and we point you to the forum discussion where his bike pics exist. Chris has decided that he’s selling his reliable bike and getting a Ducati Indiana. Nope… that’s just a flat out lie, but he does link you to a picture of one. Keep your bucket handy.
We’re giving it away. All of it. Every single bit. Well, every single bit of the Grip Puppies, that is. Both of them. That’s right… the pair. Then we move on to this week’s product review: The Bilt Storm Jacket from Cycle Gear. Say what you will; they’re making some decent stuff.
Are we spending too much for our GPSes? Hmmm…. could be. Fish eye? Get it here, now with more competing products. And if you think Ford is doing some cool stuff, stay tuned; they just went Open! Triumph gets sporty on the Tiger, and hey… feedback, feedback, feedback!
James will pick the winner of the grip puppies – Scott Pfeiffer
Welcome to the Fourth Annual Pace Podcast Holiday Gift Guide. This year, we kept the gifts simple, the budgets small and the ideas practical. Let the gift giver know you have simple needs, and for you gift givers, let the riders close to you know you’re thinking of them.
Ok, thatâ€™s just a flat out lie. Thereâ€™s really not much news, but what we do have is exciting. First, gear for kids! Bilt, Cycle Gearâ€™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 â€œhey, this is pretty coolâ€ 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.
