May 20, 2015 Front End Chatter #29

After six weeks of sponsored silence, Britain’s least-consistent motorcycle podcast is back. In episode 29, Simon and Martin discuss:

– Why watching MotoGP racing is a bit like watching two walruses fighting, or a Shakepearean play, or something.

– Will Valentino win the title, will Ducati win a race, and will Melandri win a point?

– The North West 200 race that was won by a movie star.

– The new Honda Africa Twin, and whether it would have been much, much better or much, much worse if it was more like a Varadero.

– Why Royal Enfield have bought Harris (not Rolf), and whether there are any warnings to be learned from Hero investing in EBR

– The passing of Geoff Dukeobe (sorry, Duke OBE) and whether TT spectators in the 1950s got better value from slower racing.
