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?

Episode 90: It IS a scooter!

Episode 90: It IS a scooter!
This week the guys are talking with listener, friend, and all around great guy - despite the orange scooter - Ryan Hettenbach. Ryan rode along for some of the Pace Podcast Barber Museum trip in September, and recalls some of his impressions riding with a group, as well as riding longer days and longer miles on the scooter. Ryan also talks about his preparations for next year's Scooter Cannonball Run, running from East to West in 8 days. After talking with Ryan, the guys try to discern: is it live or Memore... er... Is it a motorcycle or a scooter? We're talking about the Aprilia SRV800; it's got a frame-mounted engine, chain drive, scooter body styling and ergonomics, an auto trans, sport-sized tires. What is it? Links:

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.
