    This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by author, biker, journalist and pirate Carmen Gentile. Okay, he's not really a pirate, but he is a really cool guy who is mixing his passion (motorcycling) with his profession (journalism) by riding around the rust belt of America and finding cool stories along the way. Check them out at https://postindustrial.com/two-guys-on-bikes/
    We hear from Liza, who had a little get off on her Africa Twin. But good news, the bike is all right. Seems Liza cushioned the blow with her body. We also hear from Emma who tells us about the Vincent Black Shadow that's currently on her bench, and we share our calendar of upcoming events this summer.

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we are celebrating Memorial Day weekend by talking about military motorcycles.
    Emma brings to us a history hole on military bikes from the past, and Bagel fills us in on scooters in the military. Oh yeah, and one of them is basically a rolling canon.

    Podast 421: Love American Style with the Harley Pan America

    Podast 421: Love American Style with the Harley Pan America

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we are showing nothing but love for Harley Davidson motorcycles. We had the opportunity to play with the Pan America here at the garage, and try it out. Big thanks to our special guests Nick and Caitlyn for making it happen. We give our honest opinions about this beast of a bike.
    And if you think this is the first foray HD has taken into the world of dirt riding, then Emma has a History Hole for you that will teach you a thing or two.
    Next Bagel fills us in on HD's history with scooters. That's right, the Harley Topper is an actual thing. In fact, there's a second HD powered scooter that not many know about, made by Craig Vetter himself.
    Then of course Liza has to get in the game and share her love for HD's racing bike, the VR1000. This is a sexy beast with plenty of growl, that was a bigger part of the evolution of HD than most are aware.
    Then we get into listener emails, and talk about some of the most misunderstood bikes. And of course, the Livewire is included in the list.
    With Jeremy, Henry, Nak, Liza, Nick, Caitlyn, Miss Emma, Stumpy John, Naked Jim and Bagel.

    Podcast 420: Feel Like A Pro

    Podcast 420: Feel Like A Pro

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by guest Ryan from Feel Like A Pro, a company that supplies race ready Ninja 400's for rent at trackdays. He shares with us why the 400 is the perfect bike for the track, how much it costs, what tracks they cover, and what the future may hold. But first we hash out the top ten bikes list. Cleveland Moto and Noco Moto both took shots at making a better list, but with just a few tweaks, we think we still got it right.
    Then Liza introduces a new game called Wiki Leaks, which pits everyone against Emma in bike knowledge. I bet you can guess who won. Play along and see if you can do better.
    With Liza, Nak, Stumpy John, Miss Emma and Ryan.

    Podcast 419: Back In The Studio!

    This week on our motorcycle podcast, we are getting the band back together and going into the studio for the first time in 14 months, and boy does it feel good. First off, it's Mother's Day, so shout out to all the moms out there, especially the ones who ride. We catch up on what we've been doing and what bikes we've been working on.
    Liza found a gem of a show, Throttle Out, and shares some fun episodes of that. Check it out.
    We try a new game called Good Cop, Bad Cop, where we debate the strengths and weaknesses of certain bikes one might be interested in buying. Then lastly we read listener emails and answer some questions.
    With Liza, Nak, Douglas, Miss Emma, Bagel and Naked Jim.

Top Show

Always look forward to each new episode. Great guests. Good humour & banter. Very informative on the technical side of biking and an great insight in to the American bike scene. As a Brit this show dismissed the myth that the bikers of the USA only ride Harley’s.
