Episode 152: Still prettier than Repsol

Episode 152 - Still prettier than Repsol July 23, 2013

ThePaceFINAL-300x116

Not just anyone can own and wear deer skin on their hands. No, wait... that’s not right. Anyone can. All you need to do is buy some Tour Master gloves. And that’s what Chris did. Again. Frustrated with affordable summer gloves that fit is oddly shaped mutant mitts, he went with what he knows and got another pair of Tour Masters. And he likes it that way!

Is Yamaha’s new parallel twin engine too big? Only James knows for sure. But he’s loving the new KTM390, so that should give you an idea. And speaking of right sized... Motus unveils the final production machines, and at almost 1700CCs of torquey monster power, surely that’s the right size to get it done, right? 

The guys wrap up the show by giving props to a very, very cool Ryca conversion on a $500 Craigslist Savage. Check out the pictures, but don’t get too close. It’s a Lycan, after all.

You remember Colleen from episode 118 right? Well, she's back to fill in for Chris as he convalesces.

Episode 94: All Yuletidey and Whatnot

This is it folks. We've done our best to save you from another Christmas filled with bad sweaters, socks and handkerchiefs. 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 50: One Year!

This episode celebrates one year of The Pace Motorcycle Podcast. I broke my jacket and got a new one, Scott sent us another clip, the big GS is available in black, black and more black and the FZ8 comes in any color you want as long as it's black. Yamaha says you gotta put up or shut up if you want a Super Tenere in the States and Honda might bless us with a new adventurer tourer based on a smaller version of the VFR1200's mill. Oh yeah... NEW CONTEST!
