Episode 112 – Introduction Interruptus!

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:

Not episode 112 – Sad, but true.

Not episode 112 May 6, 2012
We had hoped to get a show out this week, but between work, travel and life situations, the timing just didn't work out. We'll be back next week with a full show, some post-trip chatter, and lots and lots of feedback, and perhaps a GearChic segment. Thanks again for listening!

Episode 58: It’s funny because it didn’t happen to me

Jeff and Todd return to tell us about their 4 week tour of these United States. We talk about broken bits, wild life encounters, tips on reliving your self in inappropriate places and so much more. Pour yourself a tall one, lean back and get ready for another epic episode of The Pace. You can find our first conversation with the guys here.

That's Todd on the BMW and Jeff on the VFR

*Technical Note: I reduced the bit rate on this episode pretty dramatically to reduce the file size. Please let us know if the difference in quality is objectionable.

Episode 27: Wayne’s World

I am traveling on business this week. Wayne sits in from The Swanson Skunkwerx for an open discussion on the Yamaha FZ1 and on his cross country trip with Chris.

MotoTour 2010

Riding season has officially started. Ya know how I can tell? Jeff and Todd are once again providing updates on their preparations for MotoTour 2010. This trip is going to be an epic four week lap of America. I'll be following it all the way through. Last year's updates are still up on the MotoTour 2010 Blog but it looks like new stuff is going up on their Facebook page.
