Front End Chatter


Hello and welcome to Front End Chatter, Britain’s chattiest motorcycling podcast with him, Simon Hargreaves and him, Martin Fitz-Gibbons, and supported as ever by the wonderful folk at Bennetts, the bike insurance specialists, and, the best biking website, er, on the internet.

And on E166 we have for your aural delectation:

  • the fallout and the fall-offs from Aragon, son of Arathorn, including Marc ‘Mayhem’ Marquez

  • a farewell to Dovi, the new Dani Pedrosa

  • speculation around the new Honda Hornet 750 parallel twin and Transalp

  • more speculation around Suzuki’s forthcoming parallel twin adventure bike and roadster, including why it could be an 800, not a 700

  • a whole thing about the future of motorcycling

  • if there’s anyone left, a bit of FECsack including Suzuki power modes, Groms, and how crash recovery isn’t the same thing as breakdown recovery.
