Episode 49: Triumphantly Honda!

Episode 49 - Oct 17, 2010
Ok, this is the last week we rag on the VFR. Really. I mean... we’ll try. But seriously, the VFR is rumored to be getting a big trailie sibling. That’ll be interesting to see. Right? We talk about how the EPA nerfs bench racing the ZX-10R, but the good news is no one will notice. I mean... who’s gonna wind that thing up that high, right? Triumph continues to be Triumph, and this time they’re doing it with a cruiser - giving away thousands of dollars worth of touring upgrades to the Bonne America. Speaking of Triumph, James talks about his test ride on the Sprint GT and by the sounds of it, one is headed for his garage soon Suzuki gets tricky with pricing on the GZ250, their entry level cruiser-esque bike. Looks like they’re blowing out old stock. Did we mention Triumph? ‘cause we get to see pictures of the upcoming 800 twin in its dirty clothes. Look out F800... The Tiger’s got its eye on your lunch! Guzzi updates the Norge/GT with suspenders and an engine update. Is this the first of the “full line revamp” we talked about a few weeks ago? Or is this maybe Guzzi parts-binning some updates on it before a big change...? Stay tuned. Great things could be headed our way from Carlo’s legacy. We’ll depress you with crappy sales numbers, then lighten the mood with helmets, pictures and contests. We’re like your cranky bipolar uncle, like that. Colleen gets the nod for the tool kit contest, with Sara getting a runner up mention. Rock on Sara! Craig... loved your kit, but hey... Barbie box. ‘nuff said. Stay tuned for more contest news, product reviews and more news about the upcoming video offerings. Big things in store!

Episode 48: Loaded up in the wrong gear

This week, fresh off the PodCamp Philly afterglow, Chris & James talk about Kawasaki. Some little bits of news... new bikes, awesome bikes, fast bikes, powerful bikes, pretty bikes... you know, more of the same old same old. There are a few other things, too... like a four wheel motorcycle that seems to make far more sense than the Tomahawk, a naked Gixxer, a sport-tour dressed Bandit breaks into the US market place.. wait, wasn’t Suzuki out of business last year? Those whacky Germans join the lid race in the US - Schuthbert comes back not only with helmets, but with a whole factory! Right here in the US of A! Madness, I tell you! Chris is still convinced this is the harbinger of great and wonderful things - that the US will finally see motorcycles as something more than hooligan toys. But James and his pesky reality squash those dreams. Oh... there’s some Kawasaki news, too. The Pace has Voice Mail! Call 484-748-0042 and leave your feedback!

Episode 37: It’s Like Guacamole

We've got it all this week. Boots that keep water in, Barney the Dinosaur and even bigger Bavarian beasts. Then we'll talk about unidentified things in the woods, something neither of us cares about, electric bikes that might be affordable, and a fleet of electrics from the tuning fork company. Someone can't count, we'll bring you the latest installment of Aerostich: Genius or Madness and if you're keeping score, Chris and I are tied at one each. *I completely changed my post production workflow this week. Please let me know how it sounds.
