Episode 152 – Still prettier than Repsol
July 23, 2013
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.
John Ryder – Which bike for a tall guy?
Arno Jansen – What’s high mileage for a bike?
Stuart Watson – Chris, get a BMW!
Daniel Short – The Lycan, a Ryca conversion.
Episode 129: I didn’t read that article
October 14, 2012
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

Triumph is 110 years old. Bonnie doesnâ€™t look a day over 60, and man oh man, does she wear it well. Want to get an idea of how youâ€™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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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,Â 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,Â Ryan Hettenbach,Â Brian Medley,Â Ben Island andÂ 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 theÂ Craftsman Experience presents Erik Buell Racing video below. What do think all of this means for EBR as it relates to street bikes?
