Theme music composed and performed by Raoul Lowe I had some issues with recording levels this week. I did everything I could to correct it but it's still not quite right. I apologize for the audio quality in this episode. I shall endeavor to correct the issue before our next recording.

Thanks for your understanding,

James

Episode 99: Shoppin’ with The Gear Chic

Episode 99 - Shoppin’ with the gear chic! Jan 22, 2012
This week, James and Chris discuss brands... Toyota, Pepsi & Coke, IBM, Cisco... oh, and Harley-Davidson, too. What’s the value of a brand? You’re guaranteed to walk away puzzled.The guys vamp over Honda’s new offering in the US, the NC700-X. Is that ABS in your auto-tranny, or are you just happy to be shifting? Yeah, something like that. Anyway, Honda’s new machine looks like the cat’s meow and makes a lot of sense... except for the parts that don’t. Have you ever wanted to see a KLR as designed by Chuck Norris and Randy “The Macho Man” Savage (he stopped designing Suzukis, after all)...? The Husqvarna Baja (concept) might be just what Ken “The Doctor (of style) Johnson” ordered. Yeah, yeah... that was a stretch, I know. The Baja looks like a seriously badass version of what the KLR and other dirty, dirty dual-sports could be if they’re injected with testosterone and Hulk sweat. Give it a look. Oh, and speaking of manly... Judge for yourself, the new Victory. It’s lean, it’s pretty, it’s poweful. Dredd it. Ok... ok, I’ll stop now. The boys round out the show with some feedback, then turn the mics over to Joanne Donn, aka The Gear Chic, to give us some tips on how to shop for gear. These are some great tips and Joanne has a lot of information available. Check out her segment, then peruse her site for more detail. If Joanne survives the Arctic freeze in the great San Francisco tundra, look for future segments from her. The guys chipped in and bought her a kerosene heater from a second hand shop down on Hudson Street, but ya know... UPS just won’t ship kerosene in Harley-branded Coke bottles, so we hope she’ll be OK. Links: Feedback:

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.
