False Neutral Podcast #128 – Jim’s Adventure Bike Advice

My old friend Jim joins us for a second time for a discussion of large adventure bikes, specifically the Suzuki V-Strom and the Honda Africa Twin. Jim does a lot of trail riding in his home state of Colorado. He has a lot of first-hand experience with Honda’s DCT transmission and he shares the pros and cons of the automatic. As usual, the rest of us share updates on our project bikes.

Here are Mike Festiva’s Coleman BT200X mini-bike videos: Part 1 – Part 2

Please rate and review us on iTunes.


Below are images of all the bikes we discuss on this episode.
