Episode 179: The things we don’t care about

ThePaceFINAL-300x116

This week the guys pontificate on things they just don’t care about… then comment on a few things they do care about. It’s hard to tell with these guys. Do they like it? Do they not? Do they even know what they’re talking about this week? It’s a crap shoot; you just never know what these guys will like.

You know what they do like though…? They like the new Indian Scout. They also like guessing and wondering and making complete off the cuff guesses about the new Ducati Scrambler. Again. While they’re at it, and talking about things they care about, they discuss keeping warm in the high desert… or is that dessert? They discuss, again, gauntlet and armored gloves, and hey… They toss out a nod to Long Rider Radio.

Review:

Gel grips

News:

2015 Indian Scout

Ducati Scrambler (again)

Things we don’t care about:

After announcing something so grandiose, I feel like I should pay homage to Stan Lee and yell EXCELSIOR! But I’m not going to do that. Instead, what I’m going to do is say that we had a good time compiling this list of suggestions from the listeners, with special thanks to Rick, Matt Murto and Kelly Mills. Thanks so much, folks! These are all great suggestions, and we hope everyone has a good time with it.

In addition to the guide, we want to announce that the raffle winner has been chosen for the Aeromoto Sport Air leather motorcycle jacket. And that winner is…

(insert dramatic pause here…)

James Enny. James, congratulations. Look for an email from us very soon and we’ll get the jacket right out to you. Thank you to all the entrants, and to all the listeners for the ongoing support. We’re a very lucky and fortunate couple of pod-gabbers.

James and I also want to announce that we’ve (re)opened The Pace Podcast online forums.

We’re giving it away. All of it. Every single bit. Well, every single bit of the Grip Puppies, that is. Both of them. That’s right… the pair. Then we move on to this week’s product review: The Bilt Storm Jacket from Cycle Gear. Say what you will; they’re making some decent stuff.

Are we spending too much for our GPSes? Hmmm…. could be. Fish eye? Get it here, now with more competing products. And if you think Ford is doing some cool stuff, stay tuned; they just went Open! Triumph gets sporty on the Tiger, and hey… feedback, feedback, feedback!
