Podcast 293: Hanging Tough with Surj Gish and Fish from CityBike Magazine

This week on our motorcycle podcast we’re joined by Surj and Fish from CityBike Magazine. Surj had a low speed crash last year that has proved to be a test of his patience and will. He is finally able to walk again, but riding is still not possible. He shares his story of how he’s dealt with a long and frustrating healing process. We also hear from Zee, who’s back to fill us in on her recovery as well. Turns out having your legs run over by a car can do some damage after all.
And since Surj and Fish know a lot about things know little, we get them to explain what’s going on with AB1824, and clear up some of the wrong information that’s been going around. Surj also fills us in on his investigation on the legitimacy of the MIC’s announcement concerning the stats on women riders.
Then Fish talks about last years Dirtbag Challenge bike build, that includes a rigid frame and a 2 stroke pull start snow mobile engine.
Lastly we finish with emails and answer some questions.
With Liza, Henry, Nak, Miss Emma, Fish, Surj, Zee, Isaac, Naked Jim and Bagel.

Podcast 290: Crash and Scam

This week on our motorcycle podcast we bring to you another crash report. Our own Zee Traveler had a bad spill on the freeway, and her bike was totaled. She’s recovering, but we wanted to discuss gear. We learn from Zee’s crash that just because you’re wearing your gear doesn’t mean you’re protected. We also talk about what happens to your bike when it gets towed away after an accident. Be careful, because this is a whole other area to be scammed in.
We try out a new game where we ask Miss Emma anything at all, and see how well she can answer it. As you might guess, she had in depth knowledge on each and every subject. We finish up with listener emails, and one more crash story. Congratulations to this month’s Patreon Prize Pack winner, James Snell.

Podcast 289: Good Bad Ideas with special guest Carmen Gentile

This week on our motorcycle podcast we bring to you a whole batch of good bad ideas. First up we talk about our bright idea to rewire the entire garage, and turn our old gas pump into the first DC charger for Zero motorcycles. Then we hear from our guest, journalist and author, Carmen Gentile. He was reporting on the war in Irag and took a rocket propelled grenade to the face. Miraculously he survived. He and a friend, photographer Nish Nalbandian, went back to Iraq and bought a Ural with a sidecar to travel around war torn Mosul.
Next up we continue with the good bad ideas by announcing a new project we’re going to build. Jim has a DR350 with a dead engine, and we decided it’s time to turn it into an electric death bike. With the help of Brandon, Terry and others, we’ve got all the components to make this happen. Then Jim and Liza announce that they have purchased some electric mini bikes for doing stupid stuff on. Good idea or bad idea? Time will tell. Ural has announced that they are going to be releasing an electric version of their side car rig, and we all agree this is actually a good idea. Lastly, we finish with listener emails.
With Liza, Nak, Naked Jim, Bagel, Miss Emma, Michael, Bex, Maruka and Brandon.
