NEW HONDA MOTORCYCLES! And this time, it's more than just BNG*. This time it's actual hardware. Is it a cruiser? Is it a standard? Only you can tell. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to define Honda's new entries. Sena hits us with some new hardware, and whattya know... bike sales are up. All over! GO US!**

Episode 112 - Introduction Interruptus May 13, 2012
We’ve got news... Lots and lots of... Ok, that’s just a flat out lie. There’s really not much news, but what we do have is exciting. First, gear for kids! Bilt, Cycle Gear’s house brand, has a full line of gear for kids. Everything from classic Fonzie leather to high-tech textile 4-season gear. Check it out. Also from the “hey, this is pretty cool” files, sales of the Japanese big-four are up. While the numbers we have reflect Japanese domestic sales, anecdotally, this trend seems to be strong here in the USA, too. Also, looking for tires? Avon has a nice rebate on a few popular models[1]. 1 - please note, this isn’t an advertisement or paid endorsement of Avon tires. We’re just reporting the news. Links: Feedback:

Episode 80: That’s not fear, it’s healthy respect

Moto Morini LIVES... again. A Turbo Busa hits 300 MPH, the motorcycle market is almost flat, Ducati is way, way up and Aerostich thinks you should be able to filter (so do we). Then I try to make Chris mad during the feedback segment. It didn't work. I'll try harder next time.

Episode 49: Triumphantly Honda!

Episode 49 - Oct 17, 2010
Ok, this is the last week we rag on the VFR. Really. I mean... we’ll try. But seriously, the VFR is rumored to be getting a big trailie sibling. That’ll be interesting to see. Right? We talk about how the EPA nerfs bench racing the ZX-10R, but the good news is no one will notice. I mean... who’s gonna wind that thing up that high, right? Triumph continues to be Triumph, and this time they’re doing it with a cruiser - giving away thousands of dollars worth of touring upgrades to the Bonne America. Speaking of Triumph, James talks about his test ride on the Sprint GT and by the sounds of it, one is headed for his garage soon Suzuki gets tricky with pricing on the GZ250, their entry level cruiser-esque bike. Looks like they’re blowing out old stock. Did we mention Triumph? ‘cause we get to see pictures of the upcoming 800 twin in its dirty clothes. Look out F800... The Tiger’s got its eye on your lunch! Guzzi updates the Norge/GT with suspenders and an engine update. Is this the first of the “full line revamp” we talked about a few weeks ago? Or is this maybe Guzzi parts-binning some updates on it before a big change...? Stay tuned. Great things could be headed our way from Carlo’s legacy. We’ll depress you with crappy sales numbers, then lighten the mood with helmets, pictures and contests. We’re like your cranky bipolar uncle, like that. Colleen gets the nod for the tool kit contest, with Sara getting a runner up mention. Rock on Sara! Craig... loved your kit, but hey... Barbie box. ‘nuff said. Stay tuned for more contest news, product reviews and more news about the upcoming video offerings. Big things in store!
