Front End Chatter - episode 188

Front End Chatter


Hello and welcome to Front End Chatter, the motorcycling podcast presented by Simon Hargreaves and Martin Fitz-Gibbons, a pair of bike journalists who've been riding and writing about dem motorbikes they have these days for bleedin' ages.

The pod is, as ever, supported and enabled and ennobled by Bennetts, the bike insurance gods, and – the brightest and best biking website and YouTube channel rammed with motorcycling goodness content. Including lots of new bike reviews. Oh yes.

So on this long-awaited return to pod action, Martin and Simon talk about the new bikes they've been riding, such as:

  • BMW's R1300 GS
  • Honda's Africa Twin Adventure Sports
  • Triumph's Speed & Scrambler 400s
  • Suzuki's GSX-8R
  • Yamaha's MT-09
  • Moto Guzzi's Stelvio
  • Harley's Road and Street Glides
  • Kawasaki's Eliminator 500

Phew! No wonder there's not been a pod for over a month!

Plus, the lads natter about Yamaha's defunct-or-is-it R1, what is Euro5+ and why World Superbike might be making a comeback to a podcast near you soon.
