    Episode 220: Are Motorcycles Getting to Fancy?

    Episode 220: Are Motorcycles Getting to Fancy?

    In this, our 220th show, Kevin was unfortunately not present due to a respiratory illness.  However we had Chris Geiss and Tom Ptashnik with us and they always make for an interesting show.


    Rides:
    Tom did a pretty challenging ride into the Georgia mountains after a recent snow, so over the gravel they throw on the road for icy conditions. Larry throws in the benefits of the Niken, and a discussion ensues.
    Chris did a couple of rides, one in the chill with heated gear and then talks about his trip to California with his partner, Gina.  Meeting up with Larry in San Francisco for dinner. Larry didn’t ride and gives lots of excuses, then talks about his insights around his electric bike. Tom admits he just ordered two electric bikes and a bike discussion ensues.


    News:
    We segue into an article about Energica selling more bikes in 2 months than all of last year and discuss whether this means electric bikes are turning the corner.
    Triumph’s announcement about moving their manufacturing to Thailand and Brazil


    Larry couldn’t resist the leaked pictures of the new BMW R18 bagger and cruiser. We discuss the benefits/drawbacks of baggers/cruisers.  the article describes a Mission Impossible scenario.


    Topic:
    Are electronic riding aids unnecessary options or beneficial advances.  Chris mentions Fast Eddie’s current preference for a bike without technology.  Tom likes the “whiz bang crap” on his BMW 1200 GS but too many settings may be a problem.  Larry recalls incidents where the abs saved his bacon.


    Paddock:
    Chris reviews World Superbike news.  Attempts to provide more variety (such as bagger racing) to appeal to more viewers.  Chris reviews 1st World Superbike at Phillips Island
    Larry reports on the cancellations in MotoGP due to the corona virus pandemic and other MotoGP news.
