Podcast 151: Fast and Furious with Marc Fenigstein of Alta Motors


This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Marc Fenigstein, CEO of Alta Motors, here to talk about their Redshift MX and Supermoto bikes. These are cutting age, race ready bikes that are, wait for it……electric! Yep, here we go again with another local company forging their path and pushing the boundaries of performance motos with these amazing bikes. We are fortunate to be here in the middle of this technology boom, and are glad we can share it with our listeners. The goal at Alta is to create motorcycles that are easier to ride fast than anything else out there. They build electric bikes with instant throttle response and flat, endless torque. We’re talking performance machines that are blowing away gas bikes. This is the future, and the future is now.
We also talk about the SF pride parade and how Liza’s gone full circle and bat shit crazy.
Kat defends being called stupid by Liza, because she wants to take her perfect bike and make it ugly.
Emma has worked her magic again, and problem solved a bikes issue that Zach couldn’t figure out for a year. We love Emma!
We read some more great listener emails. Keep the love coming!
With Liza, Zach, Bagel, Charley, Nak, Douglas, Kat, Isaac, Michael and Emma.

Podcast 150: Versys, The Perfect Boring Bike?


This week on our motorcycle podcast we settle in to the garage with the fan on, because it’s too damn hot! We recap recent rides and crashes. Liza sums up all the reasons the Versys is an amazing bike, yet still manages to be boring. Zach shares his impressions of the bikes he saw on his recent trip to Europe. We read a ton of great new emails, and then spring a game on the XR650R owners to see how well they know their bikes. Next up we talk about the new Harley Flat Tracker, and the fact that flat tracking is becoming much more popular now. Then we finish with upcoming events.
With Liza, Zach, Dave, Naked Jim, Douglas, Charley, Kat, Nak, Mike, John, Isaac and Bagel.

Podcast 148: Mean Megan and the Sheetiron 300


This week on our motorcycle podcast, we hear from Naked Jim, who nearly died while dirtbiking at Hollister Hills.
Emma receives accolades for helping John get his bike running after 6 months of futile attempts.
Megan, Cyndi and Matt talk about their recent adventure trip on the Oakland MC’s annual Sheetiron 300 dualsport rally.
Nak finds an amazing deal for the Craigslist Porn Pick of the Week.
Mike and Liza discuss their new support group, Bikeaholics Anonymous, and the 12 steps to gaining control of your life. We thought Kat needed an intervention, but it turns out the Bagel is the worst off of the group. We only hope he comes to turns, and seeks the help and support he truly needs.
Lastly, we read our favorite email of the week, where listener Keith doesn’t take our advice and comes out a winner in spite.
With Liza, Charley, Bagel, Nak, Matt, Cyndi, Megan, Emma, Mike, Douglas, Kat, Naked, Jim, John, Isaac and Clay.
