Podcast 191: It’s All About The Engine

This week on our motorcycle podcast, we talk about engines. All kinds of engines. Singles, twins, triples, fours and even a five. Yes, there was a five cylinder bike. So why so many types of engines? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? And what about the carbs? How many carbs do you need for all of those cylinders? We cover it all. But first we catch up on our recent ride, and who got new bikes. Lastly, we finish with listener emails.
With Liza, Nak, Andy, Naked Jim, Miss Emma, Bagel, Isaac and Gary.

Podcast 189: Lighting It Up with Brake Free Tech

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Alex and Ian from Brake Free Tech. They have created a helmet mounted brake light like no other on the market. I’ve often wondered why high viz helmets and vests, headlight modulators and other visibility aids aren’t more common. I think it’s because they either aren’t cool, cost too much, or are too complicated to install. This may be the product that solves all those problems.
We also read some listener emails and answer some questions, do a Craigslist Porn Pick, and catch up with what everyone’s been up to this past week.
With Liza, Bagel, Isaac, Douglas, Nak, Emma, Alex, Ian, Kat, Lucas, Charley, Jon Dalton and Naked Jim.

Podcast 188: The Handsome Asians Motorcycle Club

This week on our motorcycle podcast, we manage to have survived the storms without washing away, unlike many of our roads. But that doesn’t stop people from coming out and spending a day wrenching and riding. And that includes a visit from baby Freya, who made her visit to the garage at just 3 days old. We hear from our guests, Paolo, Erik and Frank from the Handsome Asians Motorcycle Club. They have made some great motorcycle movies and shorts, as well as their web series of the same name. I would describe their show as equal parts motorcycle maintenance, guest interviews and scripted comedy with a sprinkle of Pee Wee’s Playhouse and Spinal Tap. We also have a call from Carl Reese, who has an announcement about a new world record he is setting out to beat. Listen and enjoy.
With Liza, Emma, Bagel, Nak, Isaac, Frank, Paolo, Erik, Jon and Charley.

Podcast 186: Poll Brown, Tifffany Camhi and the Dirtbag Challenge

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Poll Brown and Tiffany Camhi. Poll is the man behind the Dirtbag Challenge, a low rent chopper build off that we attend every year. It’s hard to accurately describe this event. It’s like the mosh pit of bike shows, and is an event that needs to be experienced. Contestants have a limited budget and a short amount of time to build a bike that can endure a lengthy road trip. Poll has a long history with motorcycles, and we learn all about this mysterious man in the striped sweater, including what his UTB bike is.
Tiffany is a reporter who experienced the Dirtbag Challenge up close by riding along on the 200 mile journey, while getting to know Poll and the other builders along the way. Like many people who attend this event, she has been inspired to build her own budget chopper.
With Liza, Bagel, Nak, Douglas, Mike, Emma, Tiffany, Poll, Mycah, Naked Jim, Charley and the peanut gallery.

Podast 185: Carolynn Sells and the Isle of Mann

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by the wonderful and amazing Carolyn Sells. She grew up in a family with a dad who rode and raced motorcycles, in a life that will make most of us envious. She carried on the family tradition and got into racing herself, and taking it all the way to be the first woman to win a race on the Isle of Man’s Mountain Course. She took the honors in the Manx GP Ultra-lightweight class, and is still very much a part of the Manx GP.
