Front End Chatter - episode 176

Front End Chatter


Hello and welcome to Front End Chatter E176...


Yes folks, after a lengthy absence due to life, the universe and everything, Front End Chatter is back – and not only back, but back LIVE. Recorded in front of a hand-picked audience of FEC friends from a hotel in Lancashire, your hosts Simon Hargreaves and Martin Fitz-Gibbons talk a load of nonsense including:

  • guff about the new Suzuki GSX-S 8S and why it might be better than Honda’s Hornet
  • guff about the new Yamaha Tracer 9 GT+ and how it helps you brake
  • Mufga goes trials riding with Inch Perfect Trials
  • plus questions from the audience, including:
    • how to set-up, or not, a GSX-S1000S
    • why pillion seats are so small
    • how to save motorcycling
    • who will build the last petrol engine ever
  • And a bit more.

Thanks as always to Bennetts and for their enduring and endearing support.

Thanks also to Paul at MCI Tours ( for organising and managing the FEC Grin Oop North Tour.

Thanks to the staff of Crooklands Hotel, Kendal, for their hospitality.
