Spend My Money!

Scenario: early 40s rider with 20 years experience. Looking to move from a cruiser to a more sporty bike with touring potential (hard bags). Budget is around $10k and enjoy spirited riding, but this bike will serve no track duty. I ride solo only so no two up consideration. Prefer engine with character to simply the most performance on paper. Dislike chains as final drive.

95: Spend my Money!

This week we introduce two new segments to the show, for times when we do not have an event, guest, or other original content style topic.  The news roundup and spend my money segments proved to be good fun the first time out of the gate. 

New Roundup: 

Spend My Money:

  • New segment where we'll take a scenario that we create or from listeners.  We'll weigh all the requirements and provide one new and one used option for each of us on the show.  So a minimum of two bikes (assuming we all pick the same) and a maximum of six bikes to choose from.
  • Requirements we need: budget, riding style, solo or two up frequency, any other preferences, any must avoids, and as much detail as you want to provide. 
  • First up, someone that may sound familiar to listeners:
    • Early 40's rider with nearly 20 years experience, started on a KLR650 and have ridden a softail Deuce for past 10 years.  Looking for something more sporty and the option for touring (bags).  Looking to keep it around $10k and there is no brand preference.  Also prefer more character to the bike vs. highest specs. 
    • We'll follow up on this in the next couple episodes

UTURN:

  • Bacon's Broken Bits wants Rich to ride the Harley Roadster for comparison
  • We spend a good amount of time discussing how long it would take for Rich to ride to Costa Rica!
