I dunno, you wait ages for an episode of Front End Chatter, and then two come along at once. Welcome to FEC#42, which is (almost) solely devoted to reading your emails and answering your questions on subjects as wide-ranging as:• riding the B500 in The Black Forest Gateaux, a nice road in Croatia, and what’s the best off-road bike for a father and son (like we’d know)
• why a 2 x British world champ is doing a bit of half-naked Turkish oil wrestling on TV but isn’t coming across as a nob
• choosing between a BMW R1200RT and a Suzuki GSX1250FA• whether a Honda VFR400 handles better than a Ducati 748 – or a modern sportsbike • on-bike tracking systems for £13• how the risk of riding a bike could put you off riding altogether• what bike manufacturers get from racing• why F1 cars blow up more than MotoGP bikes
Plus, a bit more natter about Circuit Of Wales wrangles and other bits and bobs. Please don’t make me listen to it again just to fill this bit out.
