Episode 202 – Podcasters who have gone on a tangent and those who will

Episode 202 - Podcasters who have gone on a tangent and those who will April 12, 2015 ThePaceFINAL-300x116
This week the guys discuss the existential crisis of math as it pertains... ya know what? None of that happens. We do ramble on about the potential coolness of Honda, the Bulldog Concept, and then give a quick mention to some Yamaha recall news. Then we go on and on and on about the whole "those who crash and those who are going to crash" nonsense, give some luggage advice, create a drinking game and ring a bell (make out of a coffee mug). It's all the rage. Get in on it! News Links Feeback

The E2E Rally is over and the tallying is all done. We announce the winners in this week’s show, and once again, a huge thank you to all the participants, and congratulations to our winners. In the news we discuss everything from new little scooters and small bore bikes, to new big behemoth power cruisers. Sena tells us all about their new offerings and Erik Buell Racing sets pricing on the street version of the 1190… and it’s pretty darned welcome news. Is Suzuki gonna give us a turbo mid-sized street bike? Well, there’s a concept and it seems to be met with praise on all fronts. So, if the court of public opinion matters, I’d say it’s a lock. Stay tuned…

Also, we have lots of feedback stored up for next week.

Rally Results:

  • First place - Entrant #43, Jack Starcher with 2020 points.

Episode 111 – It was a bit facetious

Episode 111 - It was a bit facetious. April 22, 2012
This week we talk about the (apparently?) finalized Audi-Ducati deal. Chris is convinced the status-quo will continue being all quoey, while James thinks there's going to be some change. Good? Bad? Time will tell. I don't think the guys need to enter a to-the-death cage match to prove who's right. Probably for the best. We don't have any mops around the Pace studios to clean up the mess.
Ryca gets right on with documenting the new street tracker build and it's shaping up nicely! Check it out. Also, it's like zip car for scooters. Good idea? Only San Francisco will know for sure. We have high hopes for this venture, and maybe this could set a trend for the future.

Episode 109 - Well, that’s just f’ing idiotic April 8, 2012
This week we honor friend of the show Denise Dickenson on her 200,000 mile Yamaha FZ-1. Keep racking up those miles, Denise. We look at some secure storage options for when you reach your destination. We talk about... Honda. Ok, so it’s just scooter stuff, but come on... news was slim pickings this week. We pile on the goodness with a romp through the feedback, drop an F-bomb or two, then round out the show with a GearChic segment on helmets.News:

Lots of news from Milan, a little from Pennsylvania and a whole heapin' healpin' of e-mail.

Episode 90: It IS a scooter!

Episode 90: It IS a scooter!
This week the guys are talking with listener, friend, and all around great guy - despite the orange scooter - Ryan Hettenbach. Ryan rode along for some of the Pace Podcast Barber Museum trip in September, and recalls some of his impressions riding with a group, as well as riding longer days and longer miles on the scooter. Ryan also talks about his preparations for next year's Scooter Cannonball Run, running from East to West in 8 days. After talking with Ryan, the guys try to discern: is it live or Memore... er... Is it a motorcycle or a scooter? We're talking about the Aprilia SRV800; it's got a frame-mounted engine, chain drive, scooter body styling and ergonomics, an auto trans, sport-sized tires. What is it? Links:

Episode 79: Feedback Extravaganza

We have lots and lots of feedback this week including electronic controls on bikes, Chris's scooter, my Teiz suit and an electric concept from BMW. We wonder if two discs are better then one and slide down the slippery slope that leads to helmet laws. Oh, there's some news too.
