Two more votes for US-based riders preferring left turns. One was fearful of running wide in a right turn, the other is ambivalent on regular turns, but in U-turns, greatly prefers left turns, likely due to weight-loading and throttle use.
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.

Recorded - 7/13/2014
The guys discuss Honda's filling-up lineup of vehicles at every size and price point, Suzuki finally upping their naked bike offerings by announcing a GSR1000, EBR's SX bike... that's a LOT of torque. The Yamaha FZ07 - is it worth it? And hey, if Harley-Davidson can't electrify you, who can?
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.
Cage match is on! ONE VICTOR WILL STAND ALONE. Or some crap like that. We narrowed it down to 7 finalists, and we need help making the final decisions. Please cast your votes in the blog comment section. In no particular order... (photos should be clickable to get the full-sized versions where applicable)
