    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.

    Podcast 418: The 2021 One Moto Show

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we head up to Portland, OR for the One Moto Show, and what a good time we had. This is the first moto event we've been to, and they managed to find a way to have a safe and fun event in the middle of another outbreak. There were motorcycles of all kinds, art, food, games and music, but it's the people that we enjoy the most. Our big highlights were the Seattle Cossacks, Emma winning an award, the Chicken and Guns, night bananas, and everyone who came to see us there.
    With Liza, Miss Emma, Naked Jim, Bagel, Stumpy John, Douglas and Michael.

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Dennis Santopietro from FixMyHog.com. Dennis figured out many years ago, that there was a need for instructional videos guiding you in wrenching on your Harley. It started out as DVDs, and now has become a massive collection of online videos helping you with everything from basic maintenance to installing performance upgrades and aftermarket accessories.
    Next up we get into a highly debatable topic: A top ten list of the best motorcycles ever made. Our list includes the following: Honda Cub, Honda CB750, BMW GS1200, Harley Davidson EVO, Vespa Rally 200, Honda Goldwing, Suzuki GSXR750, Britten V1000, any Husqvarna dirtbike from the 60's, and any Honda 70cc. Listen in to find out why we chose these bikes, and if you don't agree, send your complaint to Phil@clevelandmoto.com.

    Podcast 416: Wrong Answers Only Please

    What does KLR stand for? How about DRZ, GPZ or FLXST? Well we are here to tell you, but we only have the wrong answers. Just another fun game that we play and make ourselves laugh. Hopefully you too.
    But we also talk about stuff we did, things we filmed, and events we're going to. And we also answer the question: How long does a bike last?
    All this and more when you listen to our show. And afterwards, send us an email and let us know what you thought.

    Podcast 414: The Proper Amount of Motorcycles is D-1

    This week on our motorcycle podcast we hear from Liza, who may have a problem, if you call buying a second KLR a problem. And Emma has good news. She will be showing her Turbo Goldwing custom bike at the One Show in Portland in a few weeks. Make sure you look for her there.
    And if you think putting a turbo on a Goldwing is crazy, Gabe is thinking of putting a turbo on his FZ-07. This gets us talking about expensive mods and accessories that don't add any value to your motorcycle, and cheap mods and accessories that do add value. Hmmmm. This is a hard one. Gabe shares with us his other project bike, a cafe/scrambler DR650 that is actually pretty cool. Let us know what you think.

Best motorcycle podcast ever!

This is the only motorcycle (well, any, really, with very few exceptions) podcast that I have been listening for years and still enjoy. I think it is no small feat to stay interesting for years while still being true to yourself. I don’t see how anyone who likes motorcycles won’t enjoy this one.

Almost 5...

Using Ep 414 as an example, I so wanted to give this cast 5 Stars. Emma’s knowledge is gobsmacking, I like learning stuff, and the turbo talk was an education. I’m a huge fan, and friend of guest Gabe Ets-Hoken, the banter he brings is always much anticipated.

My attention began to stray during the exchanges that required the hosts to find custom bikes online. The discussions about these items left me by the wayside. I might suggest a solution that other casters use in these cases, to have a Facebook page announcing the episode with links/pictures of items that will be discussed. Imdid search FB but did not find a page for the podcast.

Additionally, I really wanted to see a picture of the Pink Goldwing!
Finally, the Zoom audio kept getting garbled at times. This is a streaming performance issue.

Love this show and this crew!

Whenever I want to be entertained and listen to Moto talk I tune in my favorite crew, the misfits!
