Gabe Podcosts on Sidestand Up Radio!

I had a great time yesterday podcasting with Carla King and the gang at Sidestand Up radio yesterday. It was me, Larry from BMW San Francisco, Carla King, Joanne Donne (of gearchic), Jennifer Bromme from WerkstatSF, and Crystal Gurr from Scuderia West. The topics were varied, talking about City Bike, motorcycle testing, women's gear and all kind of other stuff.

We had technical problems meshing the audio gear and laptop-based podcast system, so we all had to huddle on a loveseat in front of Joanne's Mac Book. But it was fun and engaging, with people calling in and chatting in a chatroom as we were talking to each other. A lively discussion.

The Orange Girl...

Last week, I attended a KTM press event--an introduction of all KTM's streetbikes, including the RC8, RC8 R, and Supermoto 990 R and T. I had lots of fun, but not as much fun as the cast of characters from a local lifestyle magazine that was photographing a young woman, dressed only in orange bodypaint and red wig, on a KTM RC8.

Needless to say, the presence of orange boobies shut down the trackday for a while, but nobody seemed to mind. I present the photos for your enjoyment.

Warning: You can see dark orange female nipples in the following photos, which can instantly warp or damage young minds (unlike gruesome and constant portrayals of graphic violence on TV and video games, which clearly have no effect), or possibly get you slapped with a sexual-harassment suit if you're at work. What a world we live in....

Read my full KTM story:

Quick! What's that behind you?

What? Where?

Cycle World's Blake Conner apparently enjoyed the show as much as everybody else.
