Quick updates
  • Two more votes for US-based riders preferring left turns. One was fearful of running wide in a right turn, the other is ambivalent on regular turns, but in U-turns, greatly prefers left turns, likely due to weight-loading and throttle use.

Episode 164: Who are they building this for?

Episode 164 January 22, 2014 ThePaceFINAL-300x116

Death of a V-Strom! Great new tires! Bits in your boingers? And if that isn’t crazy enough, Lotus goes two-wheeling. Or at least their name does. On the upside, no one’s sure if that’s actually going to come to market. That might be a good thing. And speaking of coming to market, we speculate on the veracity of a new Yamaha R3. TRIPLE? Hmmm…. maybe not. But it’s good to ponder, and ponder we do. With gusto, and stuff.

We then try to catch up on the email and feedback, and listener Christopher Knox gives us a picture of his lowered V-Strom.

Episode 91: Stoking the fires of motorcycle awesomeness

Episode 91 - Stoking the fires of motorcycle awesomeness November 6, 2011
This week, The Pace Podcast discusses Mosha, the elephant with the prosthetic leg, and how Mosha’s life has changed since her unfortunate accident. After Mosha, the guys talk about... wait, no, none of that is true at all. James and Chris do, however, discuss Hong Kong’s adoption of Brammo electric bikes for urban patrol use. The news is rife with V-Strom goodness, both the newly designed 650 and the big-boy legacy 1000. Speaking of big-boy toys, Triumph releases a new Tiger, and it’s bigger and better than ever. Honda gives us.... (insert drumroll here)... a new Crosstourer based on the concept bike shown at last year’s international motorcycle shows. Oh, and E-15 is going to end the world. Fortunately, Mosha is ready for the challenge. Linkeedinks... Feedback:

Episode 78: The danger of 7th gear on black ice!

Episode 78: The danger of 7th gear on black ice! July 10, 2011
Back after a 3-week  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. Linkeedinks:

Episode 42: Mostly Harmless

This week Chris and I  start with a conversation about responsibility. We then move on to a discussion about Orange County Choppers that does not involve pointing and laughing (no, seriously). There are more spy shots from Ducati, a tarted up V-Strom and California still thinks motorcycles are still OK even if they're not telling us that any more. We close out the show with a talk about riding with munchkins and we announce our very first contest with big thanks to Aerostich.
