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 […]

We recorded this episode before he left Michigan for Florida and we talk about his (at the time) upcoming broadcast. Garrett is back in good health! He finished settling into his […]

Harley’s Pan America adventure bike has many promises to keep

More than 2-1/2 years after it was first announced as a coming model, Harley-Davidson’s Pan America 1250 adventure touring bike has finally arrived. The news is big for a number of reasons, but mostly because Harley has bet their (rapidly-eroding) farm on the Pan America’s success. It’s not an over-exaggeration to say that the future […]

On this episode, Garrett, Eric, and I discuss few more new models we didn’t cover in December’s 2021 New Model Review: Honda’s 1100 Rebel, the return of the Suzuki Hayabusa, what Indian is getting right and Harley continues to get wrong. We then share a few recent garage purchases we’ve made, or are currently considering, […]

Your three hosts are all back in the (vitual) studio, after a 1-month hiatus.

Coming soon: Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s long-awaited Long Way Up

It’s been a while since Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman have done one of their epic motorcycle trips. Thirteen years ago, in 2007, they gave us Long Way Down. The trek south from John o’ Groats in Scotland to South America’s Cape Town was a massive undertaking. It was a journey that gave us a […]

The False Neutral Podcast Ep. 99

It’s just your three regular hosts this month, and we update you on our projects (and workshop spaces) extensively before going on to talk about electric bikes, then a couple of new bikes including the BMW R18, Harley Pan-American, and the Indian FTR Rally.

This month’s episode is a bit different, and somewhat experimental. Garrett is busy with exams this month, so Pete and Eric are joined by guest Steve Faux, a moto vlogger from Lincoln, Nebraska. Steve joins us via mobile phone while out riding his Harley. We discuss a range of topics, from the remarkable Honda Fury […]

We go on to discuss Harley’s joint partnership with Chinese manufacturer Qianjiang, and how side-by-sides are currently keeping the powersports industry afloat in North America. False Neutral […]
