Episode 188: Where’s the Mai Tai Maker?
Recorded on November 2nd 2014
Theme music composed and performed by Raoul Lowe
This week we open with the unexpected ways in which a new seat can change a bike and Chris’ quest for gauges. We’ll move on to some new headlight tech from BMW, new model news from MV and Indian and Husky sets up some new shops. Then we wrap it all up with some new email from you guys.
The guys talk about Aerostichâ€™s latest product, the sized and purpose-built LokSack weather proof storage bags designed for all your common electronic gizmos, and sized to fit in the Aerostich RoadCrafter and Darien suits. Oh, and theyâ€™ll fit in your tank bag, too. Check them out. The show says goodbye to motorcycling legend, Claudio Castiglioni, discusses the newest Victory offerings, and notes that Ducati has fallen victim to the Honda 919 conspiracy – and by that they mean that 919 Ducaties were recalled for a minor defect that makes the Diavel models topple over.
The President signs into law the lead-ban exception for childrensâ€™ motorcycles and ATVs, and we get some pictures of the 2012 CBR1000RR from Honda.
Stick around for feedback.
 – (please note – Honda really had nothing to do with the Ducati recalls, and there is no known Honda Conspiracy)
This week we talk about a bunch of V4s and some other stuff.
We want send special thanks out to Dan Klapman for his review of Scorpion’s EXO 1000.
