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!

Episode 67 for March 20, 2011 Not in the ballpark, and that’s ok!
American muscle bike, hydrogen fuel cells and Zero gets far, far more than zero! This week, after a week’s hiatus, James and Chris are back to explain exactly what the new Motus will cost, and of course to delve into all the deep and detailed tech specs. After that, we get a science lesson on hydrogen - and by science we mean the guys speculate, guess and postulate on fuel cells. Zero wows us again, this time not with a new bike or model, but with investors tossing more and more cash at Zero. Pretty soon they’re going to have to start burning the cash because it’s got to be taking up all the room. James doens’t get all wacky and political, yet utters the words “good for the fed”, as we learn that there’s a bill pending to block the use of federal funds for motorcycle-only checkpoints. Japan has more on its plate than making sure the USA gets their toys; most of Japan’s motorcycle manufacturers shut down production for the time being. iTunes makes donating to Japan’s relief efforts easy! https://buy.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/buyCharityGiftWizard Lots and lots of feedback!

Episode 62: This is a Motorcycle Show

Well, I'm sure this will surprise everyone but we're talking about Honda again this week. In other news: You can get an Ohlins on the (relative) cheap, we found some great pics of this year's Dakar and Enfield has a new chief. A couple new Guzzi's make their debut, Zero get's some serious cash and we try to figure out what the hell the Agility Saietta is. We'll wrap it all up some listener feedback.

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! And now... Links!

Episode 52: Mostly V4s
