This week James and I discuss what we did on Christmas vacation, our websites, and James' warm hands with his new deer carcasses.Â 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!
Moto Guzzi MGS01 spotted at a track in the UK. MCN was there to let us hear it and see it in action.
This week we announce the winners of our first contest; best â€œmust haveâ€ gear item. We opine away on the Z750R and we talk about Harley-Davidson agreeing to stay in the home of Public Enemies. Speaking of bike makers, we link you to an interview with Stuart Garner, CEO of Norton. Is Norton the next Triumph? Continuing the opining, we (o)pine away for the Dorsoduro from Aprilia. Price is as yet unannounced, but being the experts on all things Aprilia (snerk!), we havenâ€™t a clue on the pricing but guess itâ€™ll be in line with the other big($) trailies. In gear talk James gives us some info on Shoei helmets including a new model to replace a long-standing favorite. Chris explains how when your Angel ST tires tell you itâ€™s time to park it, you really should listen. Some feedback and follow up, the contest announcements, and we exit with a quick tease of next weekâ€™s Female Riders show.
