Episode 40 – EurekaBeaver Contest!
This week James and I give you some updates on Ride To Eat (.com), the up and coming online encyclopedia for… well, ride-to-eat destinations. Steve is getting closer and closer to his “one-k” project. We also mention how Gary (from Arkansas) shared a great photo with us and we hope that trend continues.
We talk about the apparent spy video of a new Buell street-worthy-in-the-making motorcycle…? Maybe? Time will tell. Hell for Leather gets Hell for Cynical regarding Suzuki. Harley bows to Ural as THE king of the sidecar.
Aerostich: Genius or Madness returns with a hydraulically adjustable multi-wrench. Looks promising. And speaking of vendors, Competition Accessories gets a quick mention for having some blowout deals on Scorpion helmets.
We love the ‘lectrics – so we point out a couple of the home-built entries into the segment and some resources for those interested. Then we round it out with an email from Triumph and more speculation.
Oh yeah… stay tuned for CONTESTS!!!

James got the following email from Triumph:
We know secrets are difficult to keep, but weâ€™ll trust you with ours…
Adventure bikes have to carry out a whole range of roles with minimum fuss. That’s why Triumph has been busy ensuring its latest pair of young cubs will set a new standard when theyâ€™re introduced later this year.
We think a triple is the best configuration for an adventure bike. Itâ€™s compact and has a natural character that ideally suits a wide range of duties. Our long stroke engine will deliver smooth, controllable torque for both tricky off-road riding and the urban jungle…but with the higher rpm characteristics that just devour on-road miles.
A triple is also more refined than a twin, which means that the bike is less tiring and less intrusive on the open road. So you can just relax and enjoy the trip.
