Episode 16 of the Brap Talk podcast is now out for your two-wheeled audio pleasure, and this is another two-hour show to sooth your two-wheeled aches.

We start the show off when Shahin’s trip out into the Washington BDR trails, on his Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro. The Shah also got a chance to throw a leg over a Walt Siegl Ducati adventure bike, which made him giddy with delight.

Meanwhile, Jensen was busy at the Barber Motorsports Park, riding the 2020 BMW S1000RR superbike. Giving his thoughts on that new machine, and the general state of the liter-bike category, you won’t want to miss his review. Additionally, the “Yensen” score for bikes is progressing nicely, which leads to a fun conversation.

For a while now, we have been getting requests for our family of podcasts to be on Spotify, and today your requests have been answered.

Episode 14 of the Brap Talk podcast is now out for your two-wheeled audio pleasure, and while it took us a while to get this show out, it is packed with all sorts of fun motorcycle talk.

We start things off with some news, particularly a new legal ruling that makes chalking tires unconstitutional. We then talk about the upcoming Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and how Triumph just produced its most powerful motorcycle ever – the Triumph Rocket 3 TFC.

Episode 13 of the Brap Talk podcast is now out for your two-wheeled audio pleasure, and it comes to you right after the Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Shahin and I greatly enjoyed seeing and talking to so many fans of the podcast at the MotoGP race, Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, and the general Austin city limits. It really means a lot to us that you all enjoy the show so much.

As such, this show discusses the weekend for us, in particular what happened on and off the track. We gush about the MotoGP race, debate the bikes seen at the show, and generally plan where our next calories are going to come from.

Episode 12 of the Brap Talk podcast is now out for your two-wheeled audio pleasure, and it continues where we left off in Episode 11, which came out last week.

As such, this show picks up where we stopped on Jensen’s travels in Europe, this time focusing on the Vespa and Moto Guzzi brands.

As such, we talk about riding the new electric scooter from the Italian brand, the Vespa Elettrica. From there, we turn our attention to the Moto Guzzi V85 TT adventure bike, which we rode in Sardinia.

It has been a while since we have last recorded, but Episode 11 of the Brap Talk podcast is now out for your two-wheeled audio pleasure, and to make up for our delay, it is an extra-long show (2hrs 15min).

The show covers part of Jensen’s travels, which span roughly six weeks and five cities, and then the show turns to talk about getting ready for track days – both mentally and physically.

Episode 9 of the Brap Talk podcast is out for your two-wheeled audio pleasure, and again this is an extra long show, as we catch back up with the motorcycle happenings.

Recorded just moments after Episode 8, this edition is a bit more newsy and covers the recent Honda Super Cub press launch, as well as some current events.

Also of note, we have a Honda Gold Wing Tour to play with over the next few months, and this show includes our first thoughts on this behemoth of a machine (be sure to read Jensen’s ride review from last year’s press launch).

Episode 8 of the Brap Talk podcast is out for your two-wheeled audio pleasure, and because of our hiatus, it is a super-long show.

This two-hour long installment covers three main topics. After getting up to speed on what we have been up to, we talk about the Ducati Hypermotard 950 international press launch, and what this giant supermotard is like on the street and the track.

From the African continent we move back to our hometown of Portland, Oregon, where The One Motorcycle Show took place, and once again solidified itself as one of the most important custom shows in the United States.

Episode 7 of the Brap Talk podcast is out for your two-wheeled audio pleasure, and it is a marathon show. This is for good reason, as Shahin and I will be traveling the coming week, and thus will be a little late in getting Episode 8 out to you.

Don’t worry though, we have some good things lined up ahead, and this show is packed with some good motorcycle conversation.

In it, we get our hands on Ducati’s new models for 2019, and discuss what we like and don’t like about the Bologna brand’s offerings for this year.

Then, we head into some current news, starting with Harley-Davidson’s paid-for study about why motorcycles are so awesome.
