Episode 36: Is my Enfield on fire?

Episode 36: Is my Enfield on fire?

This week we are joined by our friend Nagi. Nagi is from India and has spent the last 10 years in the United States. We discuss the differences between being a motorcyclist in the USA and being a motorist in India. Nagi helps us understand how 2-wheeled travel is just a way of life in India, vs. the apparent “toy” or recreational nature of motorcycling in the USA.

Nagi also points out the differences in long-term ownership here and abroad, and how small-displacement engines are the norm in India, compared to the big, powerful machines we typically see here in the US. Before moving to America, Nagi rode bikes typically in the 125cc range, whereas here in America, Nagi is riding a Suzuki GSXR750 and a Honda Shadow VLX 600.

The Pace Podcast’s theme music is No Way by Kunk.

This week’s additional music is from California rock band Sundial Project. The band maintains a Facebook Fan Page as well as an iTunes Store page.
