False Neutral is The Hooniverse Podcast Network's motorcycle-centric podcast. Eric, Garrett and Pete discuss buying, riding, and wrenching motorcycles. New episodes appear monthly.
Just Pete & Garrett
Eric had a last-minute conflict and couldn't join us for this month's episode, so we make do with a smaller cast and somewhat abbreviated run time. Garrett and Pete discuss our project bikes (as usual), including updates on both of Garrett's RZ350s. We also consider what large adventure bike Garrett might look for to add to his stable of motorcycles, then wrap up by talking about Can-Am's newly announced foray into electric bikes.
Parts & Predators
This episode, we have two months worth of events to cover. Our hosts have been in a four-wheel mode, building, repairing, and shopping for cars. We update you on some recent and upcoming travel, and of course discuss what's up with our project bikes, including another look into the wild world of Predator performance mods.
Back To The Shop!
This month's episode is almost entirely Workshop Update. Garrett freshened up his vintage Vespa Super Sport and unexpectedly focused his attention on the rat-rod RZ, while Pete has been developing a project concept around his Benelli frame. In the process of discussing these, we talk about how the Internet has changed parts chasing. It's springtime, so we're all pining for new bikes.
Adventure Bike Extravaganza
What ADV bikes make great commuters? After a recap of Garrett's family dirt bike excursion, and a quick Workshop Update, a listener's question launches a discussion about the current crop of adventure bikes. Thanks to James for his great question. We love to hear from listeners and we're eager to answer your questions.
This month, we look at a lot of bikes with odd combinations of influences: race bikes that are really baggers but aren't, Buell's new adventure-tourer that is neither an adventure bike, nor a tourer, nor new (along with one that is all of those things), a scooter-minimoto hybrid, and a few other things that really shouldn't go together.
Motorcycle Forums & YouTube Channels
Are Internet motorcycle forums still viable? still useful? If they are headed the way of the dodo, what is (or should) replace them?
Pete talks about recreating a project bike blog (Tanshanomi.com), then we look at YouTube video channels that are both technical and entertaining.
Eric has had a close look at the Desert X. Phil Reed of Ducati gave him all the details, and Eric passes them along to us. Pete's been window shopping, and trying to determine if a new bike or Can-Am Spyder is in his future.
Here are YouTube channels we refer to in this episode:
BSA Power Set (Angus D. Campbell)
Cager On Two Wheels
Lyndon Poskitt - Races 2 Places
The Classic Motorcycle Channel
Michael Waller - Britannia Motorcycle
Awesome show! Buying my first bike soon and this show is a great way to get more into it
Don't miss Pete
Keep this going Eric and Garrett. Pete was a negative nanny. You guys will do awesome.
