ThePaceFINAL-300x116

The E2E Rally is over and the tallying is all done. We announce the winners in this week’s show, and once again, a huge thank you to all the participants, and congratulations to our winners. In the news we discuss everything from new little scooters and small bore bikes, to new big behemoth power cruisers. Sena tells us all about their new offerings and Erik Buell Racing sets pricing on the street version of the 1190… and it’s pretty darned welcome news. Is Suzuki gonna give us a turbo mid-sized street bike? Well, there’s a concept and it seems to be met with praise on all fronts. So, if the court of public opinion matters, I’d say it’s a lock. Stay tuned…

Also, we have lots of feedback stored up for next week.

Episode 79: Feedback Extravaganza

We have lots and lots of feedback this week including electronic controls on bikes, Chris's scooter, my Teiz suit and an electric concept from BMW. We wonder if two discs are better then one and slide down the slippery slope that leads to helmet laws. Oh, there's some news too.

Episode 74: Should I Drive the Ducati or Take the Fast Bike?

Chris and I both spent this week riding bikes that belong to other people. We'll let you know what we thought along with Motorcycle Consumer News' opinion on Yamaha's new FZ8. Here's a hint. They like it a lot. Except for the lack of wind protection on a naked bike. Go figure. We'll wrap it up with another haepin' helpin' of listener feedback.

Episode 67: Not in the ballpark, and that’s OK!

Episode 67 for March 20, 2011 Not in the ballpark, and that’s ok!
American muscle bike, hydrogen fuel cells and Zero gets far, far more than zero! This week, after a week’s hiatus, James and Chris are back to explain exactly what the new Motus will cost, and of course to delve into all the deep and detailed tech specs. After that, we get a science lesson on hydrogen - and by science we mean the guys speculate, guess and postulate on fuel cells. Zero wows us again, this time not with a new bike or model, but with investors tossing more and more cash at Zero. Pretty soon they’re going to have to start burning the cash because it’s got to be taking up all the room. James doens’t get all wacky and political, yet utters the words “good for the fed”, as we learn that there’s a bill pending to block the use of federal funds for motorcycle-only checkpoints. Japan has more on its plate than making sure the USA gets their toys; most of Japan’s motorcycle manufacturers shut down production for the time being. iTunes makes donating to Japan’s relief efforts easy! https://buy.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/buyCharityGiftWizard Lots and lots of feedback!
