Front End Chatter


Hello everybody and welcome to a Front End Chatter FECsack special. Special you say? Yes, very special indeed, thanks for asking.

Why so special? Special because in a change from FEC's (un)usual format, we've devoted a full hour to answering one single, solitary, lonely, individual question sent in by a listener. Well, you know, after 170-odd of these things, we figured it's about time we did one properly...

And as such it is the unbelievably enormously magnificently humongous pleasure of Britain's best bum-lickingiest biking podcast to welcome the one and only Adrian Morton - Britain's best bike designer - to the deepest deep dive (too soon?) you'll ever hear on:

  • what it was like to work with (and then take over from) Massimo Tamburini

  • how the Cagiva, sorry, MV Agusta F4 750 came to life, and whether it can ever be repeated

  • how many designs does it take to get a footpeg right

  • who really designed the F3, despite what Wikipedia says

  • and much, much more, including the future of motorcycle design...

We hope you love this detour from our usual FEC waffling as much as we do. And if you'd like to contribute to our bulging FECsack of listener questions, please fire your ponderings through to
