Hello and welcome to Front End Chatter, episode 75 of Britain's sweariest motorcycling podcast, presented before your ears by two motorcycle journalists called, literally, Martin Fitz-Gibbons and Simon Hargreaves, and furthermore enabled by the humungous humanoids at the UK's most enhanced two-wheeled web experience, otherwise known as www.bikesocial.co.uk – which is itself a mere digit on the mighty, but gentle, hand of Bennetts, the bike insurance people. Among the topics for discussion today are: • Is the TT more important than MotoGP?
• MotoGP silly season, including why Lorenzo will never, in a million years, take a seat at Repsol Honda, oh, he just did...
• TT latest including the unbelievably spectacular riding at this year's race, some slightly troubling consequences, and what's the point of the Superbike class?
• How many horsepowers do we a) need, b) want and c) can use?... • ... and where does Ducati's V4 Panigale sit on that scale?
• What are the worst bikes ever (and haven't we been here before)?
• What effect will Yamaha's Niken have, if any, on motorcycling? ...and much, much less. More. I meant more.
