Feb 10, 2013
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 134 – We’re back! (That’s as catchy a title as I can muster today)
January 6, 2013
The Pace celebrates the fact that the world didn’t end with a triumphant return to the Interwebs… ALL the Interwebs… with episode 134. 1 + 3 = 4. There’s some significance there. If anyone knows any Mayans, please let them know I have some weird math thing that needs lookin’ at.
Meanwhile, we give you some product (and place!)reviews, some news, some speculation, some incredibly insightful and well-reasoned discussion, and we answer all your feedback questions with the same poise, dedication and flawless logic that has seen The Pace paving everything in their way and leaving a wake of tears, uncertainty and dou…. no, wait. None of that is right.
Well, the feedback part is right. We try, anyway. Welcome to 2013, the first year of the rest of your life.
Triumph is 110 years old. Bonnie doesnâ€™t look a day over 60, and man oh man, does she wear it well. Want to get an idea of how youâ€™ll sit on a couple of hundred bikes? Hit up Cycle-Ergo.com and check out the comparisons. Very nice feature. Armored underwear is awesome, and Knox has what you need.
The guys follow up the news with some listener questions and feedback.

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.
Episode 78: The danger of 7th gear on black ice!
July 10, 2011
Back after a 3-week Â hiatus, due to the craziness of personal lives. The guys want to thank the listeners for hanging in there and for your patience during this break. It was completely unscheduled and unforeseen, and your continued attention to The Pace and the frequent requests for updates from us really mean a lot. Thank you!
This week, Jeff Katzer brings us another of his great ride report videos. Make sure to check it out. This guy makes a compelling video! James and Chris talk about the new V-Strom, now that Suzuki has officially released the cat from its burlap sack. New engine, new ABS, new look, same great mission. Husky gives the Super Duke and a few other hooligan bikes a real competitor for the “stupid impractical fun” category. BMW taunts us with more electronic wizardry; the question remains, is it the wave of the future, or a continued “nice to have” for the premium product space? Sena pays real attention to the market place, and offers a nice upgrade to the venerable SMH-10 headset for not a whole lot of money.
James has habits an tics, and talks about some turn signal woes. He also loves his Sena headset , but needs to check out some hearing protection options. James will check back after heâ€™s tried some of the choices in a sample pack. It beats buying a new helmet! Zero doesnâ€™t have zero recalls, but if this is worst they need to deal with, then thatâ€™s Zero stress! Yamaha is building some machines in the US… is the market better? Is it a â€œbuild â€˜em where you sell â€˜emâ€ thing? Time will tell. The guys talk about an editorial from Motorcycle USA where sport bike enthusiasts thrash a Zumo 50 and have fun doing it! Did Harley really mean to use Brandoâ€™s name without permission, or was it just an oversight? Who knows? Not the guys, but that doesnâ€™t stop them from floating some ideas. Fortunately, thereâ€™s a new Kawasaki to talk about, and KTM and Bajaj continue to get closer and closer. They wrap up the show with some feedback and some discussion about possibilities of disabled and afflicted riders still enjoying the road and their machines.
And the guys promise to have the 2nd winner of the signed, updated edition of David Houghâ€™s Proficient Riding picked for next weekâ€™s show.
