Episode 59 is out! In this one, Jensen and Shahin talk about what it's like riding the Aprilia RS 660 and Tuono 660 on the track. We also discuss the Multistrada V4 engine recall, which is affecting Shahin's own personal bike, and then we talk about a Portland classic, the Alley Sweeper ride. On the news side of things, we get an update on Oregon's lane sharing law; look at the April Fools jokes from around the industry (and why Jensen won't be at a Harley-Davidson launch anytime soon); and get our first taste of some new bikes from KTM and Suzuki (the KTM 1290 Super Duke RR and the Suzuki GSX-S1000). It's a packed show, so give it a listen.

We talk a lot about the technical skills involved in being better at riding a motorcycle, but what about the mental skills? We get into that topic a bit on this episode of the Brap Talk motorcycle podcast. We also dive into the very smart updates to the Alpinestars Tech 5 airbag vest, as well as the budding sector between motorcycles and bicycles in the two-wheeled industry. There is a little MotoGP talk in there as well.

In this episode we talk a great deal about what automatic gearboxes could mean for the motorcycle industry. We then look at the news that Yamaha is bringing back the R7 name, and what a travesty that is about to be; that Damon Motors has raised a significant amount of investor capital; and what a 17" Multistrada V4 could mean for Ducati.

Not even a city-leveling snow storm can stop this weekly podcast, as this episode of Brap Talk was recorded by candlelight, since Jensen's house has been without power for the past couple of days. Despite being a two-hour show, we only cover three motorcycles in this show: the release of the "new" Suzuki Hayabusa, and the first ride reviews of the Honda Rebel 1100 and Ducati Multistrada V4 S.

This week's installment is from the ghost of podcasts past, as we are putting out an episode that was originally recorded in July 2020. Even though it's a bit late to see the light of day, we think you will enjoy it quite a bit, as we spend most of our time talking about what it's like to ride the Ducati Superleggera V4 at Laguna Seca.

With a bevy of new motorcycles making their debut, we spend a lot of time drooling over new machines like the Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RS, Kawasaki KLR650, KTM 1290 Super Adventure S, and Indian FTR1200.

After that, we take a listener question regarding target fixation and tips on how to avoid it on the race track.

We finish things off with a listener question about getting started on the track, and finding the right instruction for your two-wheeled pursuits.
