Are you shade tree and how do you feel about that term?  We get into the definition and break down some of the stigma around the term shade tree.  Mike from the Riders of Loud Pipes joins us for the conversation and other topics.

  • Eric on Facebook provides some additional detail on the Ducati V4 is the unique firing order vs other V4 engines
  • He continues on with a question as to why we didn't pick the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 for Chuck on prior episode.  This bike is same price as the Versys 1000 and has the 5 axis IMU unit that the Kawasaki lacks.

EICMA News

U-Turn

  • Rich got some feedback from listeners about using overpants to work instead of riding jeans.
  • Feedback to Rick on using a sheepskin throw to extend the riding time.

Spend My Money

Solo rider, back roads - not much for Highways, but should be able to handle them. Needs to handle mountain twistys well. More comfortable on a cruiser style, but fine with dual-sport style as well. Top of the budget is $13K. Fairly novice rider, 3 years experience. It's more about enjoying the ride than bells and whistles. No real preference on brand.
