And the winner is… (tank bag contest)

We had some great feedback and before we announce the name of the winner, I’d like to take a few minutes to do some analysis on the data (links to full spreadsheet below).

1451438_10152572800990586_4318535944745007321_nIn the spreadsheet, under the column for how you use the bike, we listed the primary use as we understood it, or the first listed u10561680_10152572800980586_6375634596334134982_nse of the bike in your text. For the mileage per year, we converted some to miles from Km, so that’s why your numbers might not be what you remember. In addition, for some of yo  u who listed multiple bikes in detail, the spreadsheet may show multiple entries for the bikes, but only one entry for your name. Where you gave us a range of miles, or a range of miles across multiple uses, we tried to do a reasonable estimation of the miles-per-use, or in some cases we just divided it evenly. We also selected the higher number of your range, generally, where it seemed to make the most sense. In some cases, where information was light, multiple bikes were listed in the notes rather than on line items.

10561771_10152572800985586_8851380805290577451_nPlease note: the contest is a random drawing of respondents’ names, and the data provided has absolutely no bearing on the selection process. You could have ridden a 50cc dirt bike 8 miles this year and still won. We just wanted to see what everyone rides and how they’re using it. The winner was selected by a random number drawing made at http://random.org.

Of the data provided, where all the elements were provided:

Manufacturers: 10
Most represented MFG: BMW & Suzuki
Lease represented MFG: Buell, Moto Guzzi, Ural
Models: 43
Most represented model: VStrom
Total miles reported: >412,000
Average miles per year: >8000
Highest reported yearly mileage: 38000
Lowest reported yearly mileage: 1000
Full spreadsheet can be viewed at this link.

And so, without any further ado… The winner of the magnetic tank bag, as chosen by random using the random number generator at http://random.org, is…  Sean Winters. Sean, we will reach out to you to get shipping information. Again, thank you everyone, and I hope this information is as interesting to you as it is to us.

Thanks!

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.

Chris still doesn’t have a bike, so he’s ridden around the block. Once. In about three months. What right does he have hosting a motorcycle show at all? Well, he and James did… And it was good. The guys talk about a new interpretation of the moped, that 70s classic. You supply your own engine. That makes sense, right? And if that’s not enough on which to get your intellectual mastication, the fine, fine Pace Podcast gentlefolk also discuss The Man and his need to interfere with… riders never getting licensed. And there’s lots and lots of feedback!
