Front End Chatter - episode 170

Front End Chatter


Hello and welcome to episode 170 of Front End Chatter, the UK's finest motorcycling podcast with Simon Hargreaves and Martin Fitz-Gibbons (other finest motorcycling podcasts without Simon Hargreaves and Martin Fitz-Gibbons are available).

FEC is, as ever thus far, supported and ported by Bennetts, the bike insurance specialists, and, the greatest motorcycling website on the, er, web. 

And on this episode, we natter about:

  • birthdays, and why BMW are celebrating theirs like a death in the family
  • prices for Suzuki's GSX-8S and P-Strom, and why maths isn't their strong point
  • KTM's spy-shotted RC990, and possible the origins of its motor
  • last chance for an exclusive place to the FEC tour 2023 (It's Grin (and indeed, Gin) Up North) before we spread the love on the internet
  • our memories of ex-motorcycle journo John Cantlie
  • plus loads of next bike recommendations, too late as usual but no-one ever does what we suggest anyway

Thank you for your listening ears throughout 2022, and 'ears to a similarly audible 2023.
