This is really cool
I'm relatively new to riding. I really love this podcast. It's informative, conversational, and a lot of fun. I feel like going out and riding! Jim and Terry made me laugh several times. I can't wait to hear the next one.
I heard this second episode all in one listening and it was nice. Good information and great interviews. It shouldn't take too long for this podcast to come into its own groove. I can't wait to hear the next one.
These podcasts keep getting better.
I'm halfway through listening to this series of pdcasts, and enjoying them so far. OK, so you're preaching to the choir since I already own a BMW but now I want a Schuberth helmet to wear, while enjoying a round the world Edelweiss tour.
Although the sales pitch is for the newest bikes, the R1200GS seems to keep popping up as the favorite. Glad to hear that the owner of Edelweiss likes the 650GS - like mine.
Walt and Nancy had some great information to share, about their Streetmasters class (the best motorcycle accessory any rider can buy). And of course it's true what Walt said; if you think you need this class, take it. If you think you don't need it, take it twice.
The podcasts aren't rocket science, but a very pleasant way to be entertained while walking with the dogs. It's like kicking tires in a parking lot, with a lot of very cool motorcycle enthusiasts.
Edited: I've listened to every episode so far and they're getting better and better. The first one was heavy on the BMW advertising but subsequent issues are about motorcycling in general. Jim does a great job with the technical side of the production, creating a podcast that is crisp, clean and very easy to listen to.
