In the lull after the holidays, we don’t have anything cooking in their workshops for a couple of different reasons. It’s just Garrett and me this month, talking a lot about kids bikes, stalled projects, and choosing what projects we might tackle next. As always, pictures of some of the bikes (and parts) we talk […]

Eric, Garrett, & I talk about a couple of new bikes, then discuss the bikes we still want to own, the projects we still want to build (or finish), the roads we want to ride, and the motorcycle-oriented destinations and events we would like to experience, including the Sammy Miller Museum.

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.

False Neutral Podcast #113 – Motorcycle Credit & Financing

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. After that, we wrap up by discussing new bikes that might get […]

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. In fact, it was his video that inspired Garrett’s friend to build the Predator KX, and in turn Pete’s current torque-converter bike project. Our discussion covers a wide […]
