Front End Chatter - episode 56

Front End Chatter podcast

Welcome to Front End Chatter Episode 56, powered by the good people at BikeSocial, that's www.bikesocial.co.uk!

 

This week, between blackbird interruptions, we look back at the fallout from the spectacular Jerez MotoGP race – which isn’t the same as the Corby Grand Prix – including: 

  • race weekend perfection from Daniel Pedrosa
  • Yamaha’s asymmetrical grip
  • the world’s least safe safety car
  • a last corner clash that failed to materialise
  • the closest championship since 2009
  • do the riders, premium athletes to a man, actually pop a can of Red Bull in parc fermé?
  • the trials and tribulations of ex-Moto2 rider and sometime World Champ Danny Kent, who’s not from Kent

Plus – a re-evaluation of Ducati’s SuperSport, the merits of A2-licence friendly inline fours or parallel twins, and news of Avon’s new Spirit ST, their ‘hypertouring’ tyre.

 

Plus – some of your emails, including more of your best-looking non-sportsbikes, is speeding as socially unacceptable as drunk driving, who is General Zarco, what is the Kuiper Belt, is an MOT really necessary, what is defensive riding, how to fix a heavy throttle, and how to spot an idiot bike seller.
