We’re a day late this month. This episode’s sound files got corrupted mid-edit, and I wasn’t able to meet our usual Tuesday debut. Apologies to Chris and Ross for weaseling in on our sister podcast‘s usual publishing day. In this episode, we look at a lot of bikes with odd combinations of influences: race bikes that […]

False Neutral Podcast #121 – Motorcycle Forums & YouTube Channels

Are Internet motorcycle forums still viable? still useful? If they are headed the way of the dodo, what is (or should) replace them? On this installment, I talk about the decline of forums and why that led me to reconstitute my own project bike blog (Tanshanomi.com). Then we look at YouTube video channels that are both […]

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. And of course, there’s […]

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.

We talk with him about how aesthetics and performance intersect for him and his customers. Along the way, […]

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 […]
