Ep 148: The One With the Air Vest

15 Jan

 

OK, so this is the last out-of-order show left to go. And, it’s the one where we actually get and review the Helite Vest in studio and try it out for a couple testfires because we were giddy. This was recorded the week before we had Nichole from Helite on to talk to us about it. Anyway, you can get hear our first impressions and uses of the vest and see why we’re big fans of it. I’m going to reinclude the video from the previous show as this show was when it was actually recorded. OK? OK!

Ep 147: How To Not Not Steal

8 Jan

 

Coming on the show to talk about his misadventures in bike procurement, we have Roe from the podcast Project Archivist. Chuck’s helped co-host a couple of their lighter episodes dealing with topics like Florida and poop so it was only fair that Roe come on and tell us how bad he is at getting a bike. Go give PA a check out and add it to your regular listening rotation.

Unless it means not listening to us. In that case, fuck those guys. :)

Ep 149: Christmas Extravaganza

23 Dec

 

So, skipping ahead in a couple shows because I’m slow at editing and really wanted to try and get this out in time for Christmas (I know everyone’s a last minute shopper like me, right?).

I see something I want to crash into over there.

 

Our guest this week is Nichole, National Sales Manager from Helite Moto, makers of the airbag vest we’ve been geeking out all over. She comes on to tell us about the vest and its history as well as give us her perspective of being a female rider and what it’s like to go day-in and day-out making vests explode on complete strangers for fun and profit.

Here is the in-studio test of the vest. We do a test-firing, show how to replace the CO2 cannister and the mechanism, and then another test-firing using slow-motion:

Here’s a pretty impressive crash test video that Helite made of the vest:

Don’t think we can over-emphasize how cool we think this is.

 

Misc:

Todd’s present to Chuck. Actual item slightly used.

Ep 146: Adventure Man Bun

This week, we’re chatting with the Gear Dude and he’s telling us about his upcoming First Ride Up the Divide and we start scheming about how to tag along.

Not a Hipster™. Clearly.

Our Guest is Spencer Hill, AKA The Gear Dude. Bio liberally stolen from his website:

My name is Spencer Hill and my goal is to create interesting and relevent motorcycle media content. Losing myself in the immense and humbling majesty of the outdoors is one of my favorite past times. The adventure motorcycle culture combines some of my greatest passions, adventure, travel, trail riding, camping, navigation and mechanical engineering (just to name a few) into one. Needless to say ever since discovering adventure riding I have been hooked. I am passionate about the evolution and development of this community. I am dedicated to writing honestly and genuinely about my travels, motorcycle products and this quickly expanding sport.

So, this week, we’re talking to a sidecar racing team. We’re also talking to friend of the show Jen about… an issue. She never did get back to us with a picture…

I have no idea if this is them.

Our guest this week are Russ Miller and Fabio Petruccelli, a racing team of the Sidecars Racers Association. They’re going to come on and tell us all about what it’s like to go really fast on a track on a sidecar rig. Here’s a couple more pics they passed on to us.
