Well, here’s the poop. We recorded an amazing podcast this week, but lost it to the computer demons. So Megan and Liza came together to tell the story of the prank played this week. It was just too good not to share. Also, we make an announcement about a tshirt giveaway next week.
This week we are joined by some friends who recently went on a motorcycle journey through Pakistan They share their stories of crashes, eating yak, beautiful countrysides, friendly people and harrowing roads. With Liza, Nak, Rebekah, Daniel, Jim and Donut.
This week we talk about the garage’s most used tool, Doug. He has been the patriarch of the shop for years, and we all take a moment to thank him. We catch up with the recent bike purchases, and we also say goodbye to Dr. Hard Ass who is moving to greener pastures. Then Nak questions how being a biker may affect your relationships with friends and family. With Douglas, Liza, Adrian, Hard Ass, Nak, Megan, Kat, Jake, Donut, Michael, Mason and James.
This week we close the shop again, and head down to the World Superbike races at Laguna Seca. While there we test rode the new Yamaha FZ-07, looked at lots of cool bikes, talked to lots of neat people and ate meat on a stick. Old friend Curt came by for a get-to-know, and we share our Craigslist porn pic of the week. With Douglas, Liza, Nak, James and Curt.
This week we share stories of Mikes first long ride on his janky concours. We watch a woman flip a quad and get taken away in an ambulance, and hipster Jake learns how to change his fork seals while Eva gives him the emotional support he needs to finish. Then newcomers Eva and Craig tell us what their up the butt bikes are. With Liza, Douglas, Adrian, Nak, Megan, Mike, Bagel, Eva and Craig.
Another weekend of fun. We started with Doug’s birthday event, and then we spent Sunday at the Bikes on the Bay vintage motorcycle show. We met a lot of cool people, sold a lot of stuff at the swap meet, and learned that you can actually play dominoes with motorcycles. Then we get to hear from Lucas, who did his very first track day, and only crashed once. With Douglas, Liza, Lucas, Kat, Mason and James.
What a good weekend we had! Saturday we wrenched on bikes, and listener Andrew came by to visit. Sunday we all went dirt biking and popped some more dirt cherries.
