Front End Chatter podcast

Hello lovely people and welcome to our humble musings on the world of two wheels, otherwise known as Front End Chatter. 

FEC is supported by BikeSocial.co.uk, your 24-hr convenience store for biking information, and Bennetts, the bike insurance experts. 

Here we are again with a marathon podcast to make up for lost time, and we have:

  • a teeny bit of MotoGP gossip, including why Lorenzo should not be henceforth be known as 'Sicknote'
  • all (most) new 2019 bikes fresh from the EICMA show they have now, including some detail on BMW's R1250 GS v R1200 GS, as seen on BikeSocial.co.uk and Ducati's Multistrada 1260 Enduro
  • listeners' emails, on subjects as varied as new Chinese v used Japanese 125s, which new bike to buy if you don't want to lose too much money, are Royal Enfield's new twins better than an old Bonneville... and much more. 

Thanks for listening, thanks for downloading (feel free to subscribe on iTunes or your Android pod app, but if you download from BikeSocial.co.uk we'd be very grateful!), and please email us on anything@frontendchatter.com

Thanks!
