Eric was in the broadcast booth this past weekend, announcing the Daytona 200 for the trackside crowd and the NBC Sports streaming broadcast. We recorded this episode before he left Michigan for Florida and we talk about his (at the time) upcoming broadcast. Garrett is back in good health, has finished settling into his new home, and is ready to get back to bikes. He was nearly ready to pull the trigger on a new Royal Enfield 650 Continental GT when another model currently available at fire-sale prices piqued his interest. Pete is continuing to slap leftover parts together, and having surprising success with it. He also put a brand-new, long-distance touring vehicle in the driveway, but it's not what you'd think. We discuss a couple of new bike models we've been watching lately, including a less-ugly variant of the Harley Pan-American, the Triumph Trident 660, the revised 2021 Triumph Bonneville Bobber, and the reborn (yet again) Buell.

    The Return of 'What's The Ask?'

    51:29

    We had a lot of fun recording this month's episode, and we think you will really enjoy listening. As always, we start with our Workshop Update. Garrett has finished upgrading not one workshop space, but two. Pete had surprising success with the flux-core (gasless mig) welder we discussed with Mike Festiva in Episode 111. Afterwards, we play a few rounds of What's The Ask? In this game-show-format discussion, Garrett and Eric must guess what the asking price for six bikes offered for sale online, based only on a photograph and classified ad copy. You can play along, too! Go to Hooniverse.com to view photos of the bikes along with your hosts: Hooniverse | False Neutral Podcast #115 – The Return of 'What's The Ask?'

    Trevor Daley of One Speed Racing

    1:08:11

    Our guest this month is Trevor Daley, Canadian Superbike racer and the driving force behind One Speed Racing. Trevor has the unusual distinction of being a past professional auto racer, a current pro motorcycle roadracer, and an accomplished fabricator on the custom scene. We talk with him about how all those elements came together in his career, and how aesthetics and performance intersect for him and his customers. Along the way, he describes some of his custom builds from Harleys to café racers, which you can see photos of on Hooniverse.com.

    Motorcycle Credit & Financing

    59:38

    The focus of this month's episode is less on building motorcycles and more on buying them. We discuss BMW's balloon-payment financing model, how special financing deals can make a brand-new vehicle more attractive than buying used, depreciation, and the wisdom of paying cash. We wrap up by discussing new bikes that might get us into a dealer's showroom, and used minibikes and karts that have surprising pricetags.

    Yes, We Do Talk About Bikes (Eventually)

    48:25

    This month's conversation encompasses a lot of topics beyond just motorcycles. We discuss boats, trailers, pickups & medium-duty trucks, station wagons, and SUVs—those we own, and those we've considered owning. But fortunately, when we do get around to bikes, there's a lot to like. We continue to be impressed by the Harley Pan-America, and the Aprilia 660 Tuono, among others. Plus, a very cool aftermarket cafe kit for the Yamaha R3 has Garrett scheming.As always, you can follow along with photos of all the motorcycles we discuss at Hooniverse.com.

    Special Guest Mike Festiva

    58:32

    This month we're joined by Mike Festiva, who has a great YouTube channel documenting his creative budget vehicle builds, including a number powered by the Predator engine. In fact, it was his video that inspired Garrett's friend to build the Predator KX, and in turn Pete's current torque-converter bike project. Our discussion covers a wide range of vehicles, from two wheels to six, including mini bikes, trail bikes, street bikes, and Mike's amazing "Mini Pinzgauer" project.

    More 2021 Bikes & Workshop Randomness

    53:45

    On this episode, Garrett, Eric, and Pete discuss few more new models for 2021: Honda's 1100 Rebel, the return of the Suzuki Hayabusa, what Indian is getting right, and Harley continues to get wrong. We then discuss recent garage purchases we've made, are currently considering and, in Pete's case, bought sort of by accident. We wrap up with a quick review of the Chinese-made cobbler's sewing machine Pete bought mid-episode last month.
