Moto PG Ep 028 - Ride, Monkey, Ride - to Port Macquarie
"I have just returned from The Captains Folly Tour led by Boris, Tugs and eventually Freido showed up too....and let me tell you all that if you’re thinking of doing a tour with the PG crew do it ....... if you’re not, seriously think of doing the next and the next and .... you get the picture..." That's a direct and unpaid customer review of our first 'On The Road Recording' effort and Jimmy has it right, it was beaut. But like fine wine, we will only get better with age so if you thought the first ride was good just wait till the next. In the meantime enjoy the boys being joined by the Cudlin brothers and a select group of loyal listeners in Part 1 of our special two part recording at the Black Duck Brewery. Now we might have proved ourselves gifted Tour Operators but it's not a get rich quick scheme so big thanks to our geat sponsors Velocity Vehicle Care (who still want Billy Van Eerde to be Australia's next Mick Doohan) and Held Austalia. To get VVC's magic 'make bike shiny' spray, call 1300 990 074 and tell them we sent you. And remember, all proceeds from these sales go direct to Billy Van Eerde. Meanwhile, what's the point of a beautifully presented bike if the rider looks like shit? Don't be that person. Buy the best race suits and gloves going around from Held Australia and pay less then the schmucks who don't listen to us. How much less? To get the special price you have to ring or email and mention Moto PG. The phone number is 1300 916 916 or email To see the full range head to the Held Australia website ( And while you're listening to Boris Tugg and Freido, visit the MOTO PG website ( where you can help make the team richer by buying something in the shop ( Even better, make a regular contribution by signing up to the Patreon Pit Crew ( and getting access to bonus content and a bunch of other great stuff.

Front End Chatter #127
Hello and welcome to Front End Chatter Episode 127, the slightly behind the curve episode, with Martin Fitz-Gibbons and Simon Hargreaves waffling along as usual – supported and enhanced by Bennetts, the bike insurance specialists, and, the home of all things two-wheeled and powered by an engine, internally combustible or electric or, indeed, propelled by little more than an inappropriate fragrant emission. And on the show this week we have: * a new MotoGP World Champeen, and a slightly subdued Portimao ending to the craziest, least predictable and – let’s be honest – luckiest MotoGP season in modern history • the best Joan Mir stat you will ever hear * new bikes for 2021, including: – BMW’s S1000R, the bike with the wrong half of the fairing removed – Ducati’s Multistrada V4 which Simon hadn’t ridden, much, when the podcast came out, but which it subsequently turns out he had. It’s very confusing – Ducati’s underrated SuperSport, now called a 950 – ...and the Panigale V4 SP, whatever that is – Triumph 850 Sport, and how it replaces the world’s shortest-lived model, the Triumph Tiger 900 – Yamaha MT-09 Tracer and GT – Yamaha’s track-only R6, and the death of the supersports 600 * PLUS! A brief dip into the FECsack and topics such as do track days matter when you’re over 50, is a Z900 RS Café better than a Z H2, tyre scrubbers, how come more people don’t commute on bikes, and much – a bit – more... Many thanks to Bennetts and Bike Social for their continued patronage, and many thanks to you, dear listener, for lending us your ears... and please keep sending your thoughts, musings and life stories to us here: You can get us on the Socials: @SimonHbikes @Mufga Cheers ma dears.
