We had a lot of fun recording this month’s episode, and we think you will really enjoy listening. As always, we start with our Workshop Update. Garrett has finished upgrading not one workshop space, but two. Pete had surprising success with the flux-core (gasless mig) welder we discussed with Mike Festiva in Episode 111. Afterwards, […]

Our guest this month is Canadian Superbike racer Trevor Daley, who is also the driving force behind One Speed Racing.

The focus of this month’s episode is less on building motorcycles and more on buying them. We discuss BMW’s balloon-payment financing model, how special financing deals can make a brand-new vehicle more attractive than buying used, depreciation, and the wisdom of paying cash.

This month’s conversation encompasses a lot of topics beyond just motorcycles. We discuss boats, trailers, pickups & medium-duty trucks, station wagons, and SUVs—those we own, and those we’ve considered owning. But fortunately, when we do get around to bikes, there’s a lot to like. We continue to be impressed by the Harley Pan-America, and the […]

This month we’re joined by Mike Festiva, who has a great YouTube channel documenting his creative budget vehicle builds, including a number powered by the Predator engine.

We then share a few recent garage purchases we’ve made, or are currently considering, […]

After an overview of the conversion process and the challenges he’s still working through, we revisit our own projects, including the Predator-engined KX project Garrett’s involved with. Along the […]
