ThePaceFINAL-300x116

Not just anyone can own and wear deer skin on their hands. No, wait... that’s not right. Anyone can. All you need to do is buy some Tour Master gloves. And that’s what Chris did. Again. Frustrated with affordable summer gloves that fit is oddly shaped mutant mitts, he went with what he knows and got another pair of Tour Masters. And he likes it that way!

Is Yamaha’s new parallel twin engine too big? Only James knows for sure. But he’s loving the new KTM390, so that should give you an idea. And speaking of right sized... Motus unveils the final production machines, and at almost 1700CCs of torquey monster power, surely that’s the right size to get it done, right? 

The guys wrap up the show by giving props to a very, very cool Ryca conversion on a $500 Craigslist Savage. Check out the pictures, but don’t get too close. It’s a Lycan, after all.

This week, while James is off exploring the wilds of corporate travel, Chris enlists the help of his friend John, an MSF instructor, long time rider and track day junkie, to help keep the show on track (pun!). In true Pace Podcast form, many a rathole was visited, and many a tangent was... tangentalized. Discussion: Low speed turn Links: News: Theme song by Raoul Lowe

This week the guys bring you a plethora of... well, they talk a lot. Home modified iPhone mounts. GPS it with Navigon: redux. James’ Sena saga may finally be over. Here’s hoping. April is the AMA’s Get Out And Ride Month, which means The Pace’s loyal listeners are just doing what they do every day. Right? RIGHT? Get out and ride. Go on, get out of here, kid. Triumph is 110 years old. Bonnie doesn’t look a day over 60, and man oh man, does she wear it well. Want to get an idea of how you’ll sit on a couple of hundred bikes? Hit up Cycle-Ergo.com and check out the comparisons. Very nice feature. Armored underwear is awesome, and Knox has what you need. The guys follow up the news with some listener questions and feedback. News:

Episode 105: Pretty accessible for a niche

Episode 105 - Pretty accessible for a niche March 11, 2012
This week James and Chris discuss a whole bunch o’ things and stuff... Including Chris’s review of Sliders Jeans, version 4. They’re generously cut in both width and length. You want stuff? And things? Be sure to check Ultimate Motorcycling’s 2012 Buyer’s Guide. It’s like porn for bikers... but without the porn. Motus Motorcycles is planning on releasing new information - including PRICING - at Daytona this week. Chances are good that by the time you listen to this, Motus may have already released pricing. Very exciting! Hero to the rescue! For Ducati, that is. Ducati is for sale, and Hero Motors of India is eyeing them up. Could it be? And finally, got a sticky or tricky zipper? Try waxing it. Seriously.
At the end of the show The Gear Chic drops in to give us some more tips and advice, so be sure to hang around for that. And if you have any questions or comments for Joanne, be sure to hit her up directly at joanne@thegearchic.com.
From the MFG on Slider's Jeans
Sliders 4.0 Kevlar Jeans provide the comfort and look of your favorite pair of jeans, but with the added protection of genuine DuPont Kevlar. Sliders Motorcycle Jeans use a generous amount of Kevlar, with coverage in the knees, shins, seat, and sides of your legs and hips. Sliders also gives you the option of using CE rated knee armor, with 3 position pockets so you can get the knee armor to sit in just the right spot. With a relaxed fit, Sliders Jeans are very comfortable both on and off the bike, and are constructed of a durable 13.5oz denim. Sliders Riding Jeans are sold by waist and inseam sizes, just like normal jeans. Check them out at Competition Accessories today!

Episode 71: I Wouldn’t Hear it While I’m Being Incinerated

This is the part where we write a little paragraph that tells you what we talked about in this weeks show. And it goes a little somethin' like this... Motus is making more noise, Chris got some new stuff, Leicester County in the U.K. is giving away retina burning backpacks and Chip Yeats goes really fast on an electric bike. We got a boat load of feedback from Denver Conway, David Laniuk, Ryan Hettenbach, Brian Medley, Ben Island and Mike Sandler. Thank you all. We talked a little bit about my review of the Cycle Gear branded knock-offs of the CRG mirrors. That review was written before I moved my page to a new platform and it didn't survive the transition very well. I'll post those links once I get it fixed but here's the big take away: You get what you pay for. We also talked about what we're going to talk about next week. We'd really like your help with that. You can find the Craftsman Experience presents Erik Buell Racing video below. What do think all of this means for EBR as it relates to street bikes?
