AIMExpo demo rides:
Honda’s getting a little naked
Recorded – 7/13/2014
The guys discuss Honda’s filling-up lineup of vehicles at every size and price point, Suzuki finally upping their naked bike offerings by announcing a GSR1000, EBR’s SX bike… that’s a LOT of torque. The Yamaha FZ07 – is it worth it? And hey, if Harley-Davidson can’t electrify you, who can?
Episode 159 – More expensive than a Panigale… and less expensive than a Panigale

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.
First place – Entrant #43, Jack Starcher with 2020 points.
Second place – Entrant #179, Sandi Roush with 1906 points.
Third place – Entrant #69, Dan D’Assis with 1578 points.

This week the guys are triumphantly back and triumphantly a day later than hoped… Eh, it happens. Anyway, the guys explore the new VStrom 1000, talk about Buell of India – sort of – and chat about the ongoing rumor out of Italy. Brammo on the rebound… er… recall list. And my goodness, there’s feedback aplenty. Plus… James gets a free tire! FREE TIRE!!! All this and more on The Pace Motorcycle Podcast, found along with the show notes at thepacepodcast.com.
Quick mention, just for fun. Ever wonder what goes into building a leather race suit? http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/319/16554/Motorcycle-Article/Inside-Alpinestars-Racing-Replica-Suit.aspx

Questions from FB:
John Jones – Is anybody really going to buy a Honda Grom 125 for $2999 … So freight prep documentation tax close to $4000…. Really?
Elizabeth Hearn – I want a pony.
Will Munck – Where do babies come from?

Episode 126 – Appropriately Grinning
September 23, 2012
This week we speculate and ponder the existence of the as yet non-existent existence of Honda’s non-existent V4 sport bike. It doesn’t exist. Yet. Will it? We don’t know, but it sounds like the non-existent bike may exist some day. Whew. That went round the horn a bit. KTM gives us a new big Adventure bike and it’s powered by the RC8 mill. Question is, did the plob the lump in there, or do some reworking on it?
EBR tosses out some ideas on how better to support dealerships, and let’s slip a little info on the new EBR machines coming out in 2013. You on board? Triumph announces pricing on the new Trophy touring bike and clearly has BMW centered in their crosshairs.
Some brief commentary on the Fischer and CF Moto lower-cost alternative bikes, and does Can Am have something new up their collective sleeves…?

Also, if you have a picture you’d like to see added to The Pace’s website’s front page, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make it happen. Our site was hacked and when we rebuilt the site, we didn’t put the graphics back to what we had yet. This is your chance to shine. It’s your time. It’s you! YOU! You could have your pictures featured on The Pace in perpetuity. Or at least for a really long time. You got game? Who cares…? We don’t want your game. That’s silly. Just your pics.
