Episode 161 - A Feedback Extravaganza! November 13, 2013 ThePaceFINAL-300x116
This week the guys take a much needed break from the never-ending stream of news, they put their unimpeachable journalistic integrity on hold and kick back with nice glass of brandy to talk with friends. And by talk with friends we really mean catch up on feedback. OUR INBOXES RUNNETH OVER! The Rally is done and over and the winners have been sent their prizes. Oh, and next week, The Pace is hosting another Riders' Roundtable Discussion. So be sure to Circle us on Google Plus and tune in for that. Next Wednesday, November 20th.

Episode 152: Still prettier than Repsol

Episode 152 - Still prettier than Repsol July 23, 2013

ThePaceFINAL-300x116

Not just anyone can own and wear deer skin on their hands. No, wait... that’s not right. Anyone can. All you need to do is buy some Tour Master gloves. And that’s what Chris did. Again. Frustrated with affordable summer gloves that fit is oddly shaped mutant mitts, he went with what he knows and got another pair of Tour Masters. And he likes it that way!

Is Yamaha’s new parallel twin engine too big? Only James knows for sure. But he’s loving the new KTM390, so that should give you an idea. And speaking of right sized... Motus unveils the final production machines, and at almost 1700CCs of torquey monster power, surely that’s the right size to get it done, right? 

The guys wrap up the show by giving props to a very, very cool Ryca conversion on a $500 Craigslist Savage. Check out the pictures, but don’t get too close. It’s a Lycan, after all.

Episode 133 – Fourth annual holiday gift guide

Episode 133 - 4th annual holiday gift guide November, 25, 2012
Welcome to the Fourth Annual Pace Podcast Holiday Gift Guide. This year, we kept the gifts simple, the budgets small and the ideas practical. Let the gift giver know you have simple needs, and for you gift givers, let the riders close to you know you're thinking of them. Theme song composed and performed by Raoul Lowe. Ending song, White Christmas, performed by Twisted Sister.

Episode 77: It’s the Eastern Pennsylvania Way

Why, exactly would you put nitrogen in your tires? We don't know but we do know how to zip a zipper. J.D. Power tells us that Icon helmets are just as good as Arai. There may be a new VStrom, there may be a new sporting V4 from Honda and we definitely have a load of feedback.  

Episode 76: Damn it’s Wednesday, need a new engine

The on-going saga of the SV's self consuming engine comes to a favorable end and the Sprint gets a grip. It's not all rainbows and unicorns though, Chris has his own tale of motorcycling woe to impart this week. It looks like Husqvarna has a promising new street bike in the pipe and Honda may have a new middleweight nudie bike (we hope!). Canada gets serious about noise, Aerostich wants to let use your smartphone with gloves on and we have lots of good stuff from listeners like you. There's a gear review from Josh Davis, a video from Paul Jones, an audio sample from Jeff Gilbert and recommendations from Todd Lampone and Matt.

Episode 55: What are you getting me for Christmas?

Ep 55 for Dec 5th, 2010 Happy Holidays!!! With a visit and a little help from Prubert Claus, James & I bring you some selections from our Holiday Gift List. We highlight some things that we have and can recommend, as well as make some suggestions that we... er... your loved ones would like to see under the tree. With our... uh... the listeners’ best interests in mind, we try to offer some suggestions that span the range of usefulness and silly, and at all the typical price points. Just for the record, I’m going to need tires by spring and I’m thinking a nice set of Pilot Road 2s in your standard 120/180 pairing would be great. Ya know... as an example. We also bring you some suggestions from the listeners by way of email and voice mail, and Prubert weighs in with some great additional ideas.
  • Glen Allison suggests heated gear. Any heated gear.
    • “No matter what it is, my wife bought me a heated jacket and it’s the greatest gift ever (rivals the birth of my son) I vote any heated gear.”
