This week the guys are playing it loose and cool. James is traveling and Chris is fresh off the road. No real news being discussed; the guys are catching up after a 3 week hiatus, lots of travel, broken bikes and... did we talk about travel?
This is it folks. We've done our best to save you from another Christmas filled with bad sweaters, socks andÂ handkerchiefs.Â Actually, we do have socks on the list but they're really good socks. Anyway, we've done our part. Now it's up to you to figure out how to get this episode on to the smart phones and iPods that belong to your friends and family.
James tells us about his new top case, finally delivered and installed by Triumph, and how it brings a completeness and whole-life synergy to his commuting and luggage-using lifestyle. (donâ€™t mind me, Iâ€™ve been in a lot of marketing meetings lately)
The guys discuss the local weather lately, and how the strange yellow ball in the sky has finally returned to rain down its lovely light upon us all (or some wacky stuff like that), infusing us all with positive energy, and bringing forth new ways of looking at the sky as a metaphor for life. (somebody stop me)
James also talks about the limits of the Teiz Commute suit in the weather, and then gives us all some information on a few of the farkles heâ€™s added to his bike and smart phone, bringing synergy and convergence to.... ya know, I just donâ€™t really know how to complete that sentence without it sounding like a marketing slogan from some non-descript â€œbusiness consulting firmâ€ that never really explains what they do and charges you $550 per hour for the convenience of that lack of understanding.
So weâ€™re not going to do that.
Because we canâ€™t charge you.
The guys also talk about the new Honda cross-genre bike being developed for the world market. Since the new machine is named after one of the Acura car models, and Honda being a division of the Honda corporation, we see that synergy taking shape in the form of... wait, sorry... Iâ€™m doing it again.
Yamaha cements their place in the 2012 US motorcycle marketplace by redefining market expectations with its strong commitment to legacy and the common paradigm, while envisioning a new tomorrow with... DAMN IT! Stop it. Yeah, Yamaha announces the 2012 models.
Links, in synergistic symbiosis with the digital... STOP IT!!!
Ep 55 for Dec 5th, 2010
With a visit and a little help from Prubert Claus, James & I bring you some selections from our Holiday Gift List. We highlight some things that we have and can recommend, as well as make some suggestions that we... er... your loved ones would like to see under the tree. With our... uh... the listenersâ€™ best interests in mind, we try to offer some suggestions that span the range of usefulness and silly, and at all the typical price points. Just for the record, Iâ€™m going to need tires by spring and Iâ€™m thinking a nice set of Pilot Road 2s in your standard 120/180 pairing would be great. Ya know... as an example.
We also bring you some suggestions from the listeners by way of email and voice mail, and Prubert weighs in with some great additional ideas.
