    Episode 236 : Where should we go?(The Water-Cooler episode)

    Episode 236 : Where should we go?(The Water-Cooler episode)

    We discuss our rides for the week, or lack thereof.  Tom visits a multiline dealership in Iowa City, and makes some observations, such as noting there were only a handful of the Japanese bikes on the floor, while the European brands had their full lineups on the floor.


    Chris decides on a Sena for his helmet.


    Kevin describes his Motorcycle safety class from the weekend


    We discuss an issue mentioned in the chat of a BMW motorcycle dealer in Alabama refusing to service bikes not purchased through the dealership.  Not appearing to be a manufacturer based policy, but perhaps rather a local one.


    Kevin brings up question of where to go on a motorcycling vacation for himself, or trips that others would like to take. we all chime in on this one.


    A discussion of what we wished we knew when we started riding follows:


    Paddock:
    Dovitsioso gets injured.
    Surprisingly, Rossi’s and Dovitsioso’s futures for 2021 not yet nailed down.
