And she’s back!

Episode 167:

So this episode is a bit hacked together. As I explain in the beginning, we originally had a guest on to talk about some stuff but afterwards, they decided they didn't want that to run. I've made an effort to try and piece together as complete a show as possible without the interview and our post-talk. Fortunately, we got Jen back on the show to cohost with us so we have a lot of other stuff to chat about!

Take That, The Cohost!

August 19, 2016

Episode 164:

After a long hiatus from the internet-waves, James from the Pace Podcast joins us for a good old fashioned ramble cast where we take some time to catch up with the veteran podcaster, get a quick update about the Pace, and then go on to shoot all kinds of crap all over this fun hobby world of motorcycling. 

I am not going to post the link to the video of the unfortunate accident we talk about in the show. Just... no. Don't be a Billy. Don't ride stupid. Don't ride on the back of stupid. And if you're in the front, think about the responsibility you have to the safety of the person behind you much less to yourself, ya numbskull. We all see way too many bikes with two people riding foolishly.

No Ride Up Anywhere

July 27, 2016

Episode 162! Chuck recaps the horror that was him trying to have a nice time when he caught up with the First Ride Up the Divide guys and attempted to tag along. Wanted to give a shoutout here to Randy and Tammy of Unique Rides in Fort Collins for getting the Ural patched up in time for me to at least ride it home without taking extra PTO. I'm re-including the links for the Ride itself. I think I might have made it into one of them...

Episode 160 of the Wheelnerds! After coming down off our Buell high, we took a week and then recorded a ramblecast. Which I saw on for a couple more weeks, because I am lazy. Also, life gets busy. Also, for this episode, I was streaming live on Facebook so you'll hear us mention that a couple times while we're riffing and drinking. Kick back, relax, and listen to our crappy jokes, won't you?
