Episode 5 - MotoGP, Adventure, and Maintenance - Oh My!

Welcome to Episode 5... We're back, still reeling from our weekend together riding the Brammo Empulse R and the KTM Duke 690...On the table for this week's podcast are upcoming events, adventure bike discussion/listener questions, basic bike maintenance, and gear discussion.  We sway more toward adventure riding this time out, talking about the Long Way Round boys and Cristi's selection of her own "adventure" bike in Quito...


Upcoming Events -

International Female Ride Day - May 3, 2013: via Motoress and Facebook

Overland Expo 2013 - May 17-19, 2013: Will Charley Boorman grace the adventure set with his presence?

MotoGP Racing Season is Here!: April 7 - November 10, 2013 (ACK! Sorry for not mentioning Colin Edwards, our 3rd American GP racer in the series, also known as the Texas Tornado /JD)

Topics -
