I would like to share a paraphrased excerpt from the conversation that Chris and I had just prior to recording this episode. It went a little something like this…
Me: I know we have a lot of news to catch up on this week AND we need to get caught up on feedback but we have a ton of stuff from Americade. Whatdaya think if we just focus on that and the interview with Lee?
Chris: Ok, I’ll start a show doc for 177 and move everything over.
Me: Great. We’ll do 35 or 40 minutes plus the 25 minute interview and were good.
With that in mind, We proudly present our longest episode ever. All two hours and fifteen minutes of it.
Death of a V-Strom! Great new tires! Bits in your boingers? And if that isn’t crazy enough, Lotus goes two-wheeling. Or at least their name does. On the upside, no one’s sure if that’s actually going to come to market. That might be a good thing. And speaking of coming to market, we speculate on the veracity of a new Yamaha R3. TRIPLE? Hmmm…. maybe not. But it’s good to ponder, and ponder we do. With gusto, and stuff.
We then try to catch up on the email and feedback, and listener Christopher Knox gives us a picture of his lowered V-Strom.
