One of the few great moto podcasts

This is a really great show. Great topics and great discussions. I only like Throttled, NocoMoto, This Motorcycle Life, and Brap! All are one or two guys having a chill, informative, and entertaining discussion without people talking over each other. I gotta agree with a previous review, however, regarding Kevin occasionally interrupting Larry. Larry is very knowledgeable and a great to listen to. Kevin is fortunate to have him as a partner. I don’t wanna rip on Kevin cause he is solid too. Chris is also a great guest. And he has my bike - Z900rs. 5 stars all the way.

Getting hard to listen

I want to first say that the content and information itself is fantastic . However during the banter Kevin constantly discredits Larry and interrupts Larry . I completely understand that people will disagree, as we should and it is fun to hear both sides but not when one person constantly interrupts . Just my feedback. I realize it’s a free show and the feedback is only to be constructive because I want the show to continue and improve in doing so . Thank you guys for all the hard work .

Long time listener

This was my favorite motorcycle podcast to listen to but am disappointed that there is less motorcycle news/magazine reviews and has transitioned into more talk about being a riding instructor and body aches. I feel like one of the hosts can get condescending towards the other older host (I can only imagine the older/wiser/more life experienced host is rolling his eyes). Not meaning this to be a rip on the main host - but I have gotten tired of the negativity and unsubscribed for a while. I live the humbleness of Larry.
