Episode 59 – Does Jar Jar ride a Honda?

Episode 59 – Does Jar Jar ride a Honda?
Jan 16, 2011
This week James and I discuss what we did on Christmas vacation, our websites, and James’ warm hands with his new deer carcasses. We also talk about how Chevy is designing cars like sport bikes, and just how wrong I am about the aesthetics of Ducatis.

While we’re at it, we discuss all sorts of interesting things about roadway designs. Are left turns going to be made illegal? Does Jersey have the right idea? Are circles your friends?

We answer couple of email and phoned-in questions, and we help promote NewEnough’s name change to MotorcycleGear.com. We both agree that the new name is a good move, if a little bland and generic. Good luck and congrats on the new name, guys!

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.”
