Episode 119: I Wept Quietly to Myself

Episode 92: Slow down, be careful, blah blah blah

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

Episode 86: It’s more naked than the other Nakeds, and it’s from Europe

Episode 86
Sept. 11, 2011
This week the guys talk about the new Husq Nuda 900 in all its naked glory. How can a naked bike look more naked...? The Nuda gets it done. Costco goes Zero and brings the electric bike crazy to the Canadian public. What bike gets honorable mention in one category and wins a completely different category? Well, check out the top-10 list for 2011 from Motorcycle.com and learn the answer. But one question remains.... Is it a cruiser? Nissan takes heat for crashing bikes in a cartoon. Yeah... a cartoon. Things to get over: that. We have some excellent feedback this week and Jim Long asks for some Pace Podcast Opining DuJour on the Harley Switchback. In short: the guys like it.

Episode 75 – That’s NEVER a good idea.

Episode 75 - That’s NEVER a good idea. May 22, 2011
Technical note: this week we’ve encoded the MP3 with slightly higher compression in mono format to provide a smaller overall file size. Please be sure to let us know how the audio quality is on your player. Thanks! 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 he’s tried some of the choices in a sample pack. It beats buying a new helmet! Zero doesn’t have zero recalls, but if this is worst they need to deal with, then that’s Zero stress! Yamaha is building some machines in the US... is the market better? Is it a “build ‘em where you sell ‘em” 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 Brando’s name without permission, or was it just an oversight? Who knows? Not the guys, but that doesn’t stop them from floating some ideas. Fortunately, there’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 Hough’s Proficient Riding picked for next week’s show.

Episode 66: We’ve all seen Get Smart

This week we talk about Chris's new Zook, deliver some good news from HD, some bad news from Suzuki and we try real hard not to pick on Honda too much. Zero has a new bike, L.A. has a new plan and we have Scott Bolton's AMA season Preview.

Episode 62: This is a Motorcycle Show

Well, I'm sure this will surprise everyone but we're talking about Honda again this week. In other news: You can get an Ohlins on the (relative) cheap, we found some great pics of this year's Dakar and Enfield has a new chief. A couple new Guzzi's make their debut, Zero get's some serious cash and we try to figure out what the hell the Agility Saietta is. We'll wrap it all up some listener feedback.

Episode 41: We love you, Michael Bay!

Episode 41 - We love you, Michael Bay!
This week we open up with a volley of hurt on spammers. Ok, it's actually just a lot of whining about spammers, but that doesn't sound nearly as cool. Bottom line: if we accidentally deleted your comments or didn't approve your forum signup, it's not 'cause we don't like you - we're just really bad at figuring out who the real people are vs. the spammers. Sorry. Oh, and Canada... it was a joke. It's all good. After that we discuss recalled R6es and their awesome reflectors. We still love the 'lectrics and we talk about a great article with a 3-bike electric comparo on motorcycle.com. Ever want to flout the helmet laws? Do it in Myrtle Beach. Take THAT, city council! You're not awesome! James admits he loves Michael Bay but thinks the incredible transforming Krugger bike is less than awesome. MCN is awesome, though, because they have the ONLY reports of 2011 Gixxers on the planet. Awesome! Moto Morini is dead; Long live Moto Morini. Except... no. And Honda aims at the FJR and C14 with the new, upcoming VFR1200T? Hmm... They might, rabbit. They might. Continue to stay tuned for CONTESTS!!! We're gonna take next week off, so look for us to come back on the 29th. Enjoy your vacation, James! Links...
