Episode 69: Yay for budget cuts!

We kick this week's show off with an early review of the Teiz Commute Suit. We discover that the BPG Uno III is more then meets the eye while KTM's Freeride gets a little closer to production. The U.K. seems to be running out of money for speed cameras, N. H. Citizens Against Loud Motorcycles (NH CALM, aren't they clever?) runs out of rope and Fox's Shift brand runs away from the street apparel market. Oh, remember Bajaj? It seems that they're doing pretty well. BPG Uno III Video  

Episode 65: Galactically Stupid

There's a lot of ranting in this episode. Really, almost nothing but ranting about stuff. There's the "what could they possibly hope to accomplish" rant and the "what the hell is Honda thinking" rant. Then there's the "the man is trying to stick it to us" rant and the "that's galactically stupid" rant. There is a little non-rant content. Chris and I manage to have perfectly civil conversations about EBR's new 1190RS, the new price on KTM's RC8 R and the appearance of a Yamaha FZ8R in France.

Episode 47: We’re not that pretty

In the immortal words of Jed Clampett “Weeeell, doggies!” have we got a show for you this week. Of course we do. We have a show almost every week. This week, however we open with a contribution from someone who actually know stuff about stuff we don't know all that much about. Then we talk about a whole bunch of Kawasakis including a potential partnership with Bajaj and KTM. We'll talk about a couple Italians and there are leaks-o-plenty from Triumph and BMW. My bike lost it's spark, Chad's prizes are on the way and we have an announcement or two.
