Front End Chatter


Hello and welcome to Episode 163 of Front End Chatter, Britain's most flavoursome motorcyclistic podcast with Simon Fitz-Gibbons and Martin Hargreaves if you're listening in black & white.

Front End Chatter is supported by Bennetts, the bike insurance specialists, and, the best place on the web to keep up to speed with all things two wheels (and don't forget the Bennetts' YouTube channel wot has tons of good stuff on it).

And on this week's FEC we have:

  • testing jackets for RiDE magazine on the hottest day EVER

  • the splendour of a Bennetts' track day at Cadwell on an SV650

  • World Supers from Donington

  • running over cats and dead piglets

  • does MotoGP visit democratic countries?

  • why boots squeak and how to fix it

  • how much better is a Tracer 9 GT than a Tracer 900 GT?

  • should we experiment with cornering ABS?

All this and much more, or less, depends on your point of view and the orientation of your ears.

Thanks to everyone for listening, please keep your emails coming in to, and see you soon!
