Front End Chatter, Britain's best motorcycle podcast, celebrates its 30th episode with a Q&A special. This time we've passed the handlebars over to you, dear listener(s), as Simon and Martin spend a full hour finding, inventing, and in some cases, actually knowing, answers to your questions. Topics include:
- Why many riders find life gets in the way of riding, often for years at a time
- Are bikes getting taller? And does size (of a bike's seat height) really matter?
- Is the Ducati Scrambler "completely wanky"? (Not our words...)
- 10 (or so) great roads to ride in Europe (and one in Wales...)
- The invention of the British SuperCeleb championship, where Hollywood (the culture) meets Hollywood (the baker) at Hollywood (the corner)
- Are the DVLA being sneaky buggers, or are some people just not paying enough attention?
- Plus an ex-pat makes us all feel better by bursting a few bubbles about the reality of riding in Australia
Thank you for downloading and, hopefully, listening. All questions, comments, replies and general communication is welcomed to firstname.lastname@example.org

After six weeks of sponsored silence, Britain's least-consistent motorcycle podcast is back. In episode 29, Simon and Martin discuss:
- Why watching MotoGP racing is a bit like watching two walruses fighting, or a Shakepearean play, or something.
- Will Valentino win the title, will Ducati win a race, and will Melandri win a point?
- The North West 200 race that was won by a movie star.
- The new Honda Africa Twin, and whether it would have been much, much better or much, much worse if it was more like a Varadero.
- Why Royal Enfield have bought Harris (not Rolf), and whether there are any warnings to be learned from Hero investing in EBR
- The passing of Geoff Dukeobe (sorry, Duke OBE) and whether TT spectators in the 1950s got better value from slower racing.
