The Gist

Robin's feelin' fine in "tropical" Kerrville, Texas. Travis, on the other hand is on the decongestant train with an ibuprofen connecting flight. Tim has it even worse, coughing enough all night to get zero sleep.

All of this makes for an entertaining podcast, especially when Honda has a new sub-1000cc street fighter on the way. We also look at portable center stands for bikes without one. Eventually, we discuss our latest article from Brian Wringer.

Tom Burns asks a fine question about how to dodge allergies while on the bike. Our thinking is a dual sport helmet over a Covid mask. Mix in travel-safe (non-drowsy) allergy meds and maybe there's hope!

The site went dark for a night or two, thanks to Robin's "oh so reliable and efficient" code work. Nothing makes a website more efficient than simply not existing for nine straight hours. Fortunately, he found the bug, so we're back up and running.

The newest iteration of Honda's beloved Hornet (now dubbed "2.0") is slated to hit 'Merca in 2023. Making ninety horsepower on a lightweight chassis, we expect great things despite its equally lightweight price tag. Gotta love those street fighters (well, mostly).

Listener Questions

Tom Burns asks (1/2 jokingly) if we have any suggestions on how he might completely encase his head in a bubble so he can ride his bike without taking a hit from allergies. Tom's plight limited him to 2000 miles this year. He says in-ride food/water access for whatever solution we devise would also be a welcome option.
