Front End Chatter - episode 125

Front End Chatter

 

Hello and welcome for Front End Chatter, Britain’s best biking podcast, and Episode 125 of the aforementioned, presented by him, Martin Fitz-Gibbons, and him, Simon Hargreaves. And we are, as ever, enabled and legitimised by Bennetts, the bike insurance specialists, and www.bikesocial.co.uk, the wonderful world of woking on the web.

 

And in this fun-sized Mars Bar of an episode we chatter about: 

 

  • how IAM observers are like twitchers
  • what’s the best 125 ever, why isn’t it the Varadero, and are modern 125s better than classic 125s? 
  • how to topple off an Africa Twin and an F800GS in style
  • how far can you go on a Zero SRF, and still get back in a day?
  • wet MotoGP from Le Mans including an uncannily prescient Martin suggesting Covid could play a part in sideling riders THE DAY BEFORE a viral Rossi misses a couple of rounds
  • loads of chat about Ducati’s new V4 Granturismo motor powering the new Multistrada – how it’s bigger, but smaller, lasts longer, makes more power but less torque, and where has the whole Desmo business gone? And why? 
  • a natter about details of Aprilia’s RS660, as Martin from the past pays a visit to remind us his half of FEC worked all that stuff out a year ago. Apart from the price.
  • all before we dive into the FEC sack with its usual barrage of good points, corrections and fab stories.

Thanks for listening, and let’s do this again in a fortnight.
