Front End Chatter #69

Had enough of cold turkey? Fear not, here’s your fix of Front End Chatter Episode 69, served in a very small tin foil hat with a side-order of www.bikesocial.co.uk in association with Bennetts, the bike insurance specialists. And, following on from the last episode’s fab interview with Julian Ryder, this time it’s business as usual as we read through a veritable mountain of your occasionally lengthy emails, on topics as varied as: • Does the motorcycle industry do enough to attract young riders?

 

  • Does uploading fancy software and a few items from the accessories catalogue justify adding a few grand on the price of a new bike and calling it a premium model?

 

  • Is motorcycling becoming too tribal?

 

  • Will we be seeing more examples of forced induction on new models? • How British Superbike is also brilliant if you live in the US

 

  • Why does no-one build a modular, adjustable motorbike?

 

  • Where is the Husqvarna Vitpilen?

 

  • Why riding a bike a great cure for illness.

 

  • PLUS loads of other nattering and chattering…

 

Many thanks for your continued ears, please tell everyone you know to download the podcast and please email you thoughts, considerations and questions to:

@Mufga Hope you had a great Christmas and look forward to a splendidly two-wheeled (or three) New Year!

December 24, 2017 Episode #117: The 2017 Christmas Special

Episode #117: The 2017 Christmas Special

It’s the final show of 2017! Andre Harrison, Ryan King, RJ O’Connell and Zoe Hamilton sit in for the last show of the year, and we go nuts with Keepin’ It 101 on Sports Personality of the Year, and a preview of a future Zoe series as well!

We break down some of the news, and repeat our yearly tradition of analysing the Autosport Top 50 of 2017, with a name at #3 that literally broke Dre. It’s a doozey!

Merry Christmas to everyone listening, have a wonderful holiday season, and we’ll be back in the new year. Thanks SO much for all your support in 2017!

Ep.86 – Robby Gordon

Not a lot of people can claim wins in IndyCar, NASCAR, IMSA, the Baja 1000 and Paris-Dakar, but Robby Gordon can. Largely considered one of the most naturally gifted racers in the history of the sport, Robby’s place among the greats is unquestioned, with a fiery personality off-the-track playing a perfect match to his talent on the track. Transitioning from driving to business innovation, Robby’s enterprising nature has since led to his creation of the Stadium Super Truck Series (SST), as well as Speed Energy Drink, and he’s happy to talk about all of it. Dinner was served at Robby’s shop in Mooresville, NC, with food courtesy of Yoshii’s in nearby Huntersville and outro music by Red Remains. Thanks to Continental Tire for all of their support, and Acura for providing a great MDX.

Ep.85 – Chocolate Myers

Danny “Chocolate” Myers is part of a rich NASCAR history dating back to the 1950’s. The son of one of racing’s original short-track heroes, “Chocolate” is primarily known as part of the famed “Flying Aces” pit crew for Richard Childress Racing, an elite group of guys who supported the legendary Dale Earnhardt through four of his famed NASCAR championships. A signature part of the Dale Earnhardt legacy, Chocolate’s bigger-than-life personality has made him an excellent storyteller, eventually landing him a role with SiriusXM satellite radio, where he now hosts the daily talk show “Trading Paint.” Lunch was served at Kerly’s BBQ in Welcome, North Carolina, with the music of Vince Johnson taking us out. Thanks to Continental Tire for all of their support, and Acura for providing a great MDX.

Ep.84 – Tony Stewart, Pt.2

Tony Stewart, known to us as Mr. The Smoke, is one of the greatest racing drivers of all time. It’s almost an insult to even write a description. The first driver to win USAC’s “Triple Crown” in one year (Silver Crown, Midget, and Sprint Car Titles), a pole-sitter at the Indy 500, and IndyCar champion, a two-time winner of the Brickyard 400 and three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, the dude is a living legend. We cover it all… and he was awesome. So awesome, we broke it into two parts. Dinner was served at Port City Club in North Carolina, with the music of Rachel Paschket taking us out. Thanks to Continental Tire for all of their support, and Acura for providing a great MDX.
