The DawgHouse Motorcycle Radio…The #1 Motorcycle Show in the US

THIS is hard to believe! Phil wants to punch his man-crush, JD Beach, in the face! Phil is upset that Jiggy Dog did not race in the Oakland Supercross. Which he would have totally won had he entered!
There is going to be a World Superbike Race in Ireland for 2019. Does that mean that they are going to drop another race or just add another stop?
Supercross finally gives us what the DawgHouse has called for, an early start to a west coast race. It was so early that Warren missed the early heats! Big P, Aaron Plessinger and Jason Anderson take care of business while Eli Tomac still struggled

The DawgHouse Motorcycle Radio…The #1 Motorcycle Show in the US

On this week’s show…

Ken is here for today only!

Phil wants to you to know about new Department of Transportation rules regarding towing trailers.  If you pull a motorcycle or car to the racetrack you might be subject to the new rules.  If you have sponsor stickers on your race bike and your trailer is 10,000 pounds you are a commercial tow and subject to the same rules as commercial haulers. If you get pulled over you might be stuck on the side of the rode until you can hire a commercial driver.

Ken is gloating about how right he was on the return of Ken Roczen to Supercross.  Phil and Warren are still not sure he will make it to race day.

The DawgHouse Motorcycle Radio…The #1 Motorcycle Show in the US

On this broadcast we had sooo much motorcycle racing news to cover we actually go long by 15 minutes, bonus time for you LOL!

The only motorcycle news item we cover, in a very quick manner, was that dipwad (not going not say his name) who swerved into a passing motorcycle.  Well this 69 year old asshat got 15 years in prison for his actions….with the way our system works he will be out in less than 7.

Motorcycle Racing: SUPERCROSS

As we missed a week due to illness we coved both Detroit and St. Louis.  The majority of the conversation was about how Chad Reed became a really stuck it to Ryan Dungy over some innocuous comments.  The DawgHouse consciences is that Reed needs a bigger penalty then he received.

Motorcycle Racing: Flat Track

Again covering two weeks of racing.  But we also delve into the audience numbers, Indian motorcycles domination and how that might just hurt the future of AMA Flat Track.

Motorcycle Racing: World Superbike

Rea, Sykes, Davies or just Rea…. Well until someone can consistently beat Rea this is the Jonathan Rea WBSK series.

Motorcycle Racing: MotoGP

Holy ZARCO!  WOW we discuss just what his statement was in his first MotoGP race. And,

not to be overlooked, how tires played a huge role on the Qatar track.

The DawgHouse Motorcycle Radio…The #1 Motorcycle Show in the US

This week another interesting motorcycle podcast/show.

Dateline Kenya: What do you do if your motorcycle is stolen in Kenya?  Call the local witch doctor!  In this case the guys discuss a recent event where the witch doctor actually comes though and finds the stolen bike…. Or does he?

Dateline Electric Bikes (kind of): It seems we are talking about a new electric vehicle every third show or so, this time Morgan Motors is the latest to offer an electric motorcycle.  Well motorcycle or trike or autocycle, the Morgan 1909 falls in that weird category that that the T-Rex or SlingShot also fills.  One thing for sure is that the Ken and Phil have no love for the appearance of the electric version of the classic motorcycle.

Dateline The Space Age: Graphene is one of the newest “space-age” materials.  Strong, light, heat resistant and able to leap tall building in a single bound, graphene has made it to the world of motorcycles.  The guys talk about MOMO’s attempt to integrate graphene into helmets that are reasonably priced.

Dateline Stupid Rules: In the racing segment Phil brings up the topic of the new rules for World SuperBike motorcycle racing.  It seems that the “participation trophy” generation has come to WBSK.  No one on the show how the lack of achievement will now be rewarded.

In fact we think that there could be fight between the 3rd 4th and 5th place riders to finish 4th….don’t understand?  Listen to the show.


World Superbike rule changes….participation trophies for all!!

The DawgHouse Motorcycle Radio…The #1 Motorcycle Show in the US

This week Ken completes his list of the top 11 motorcycle makers (by sheer number produced).  I was surprised that Royal Enfield was not one of those eleven!

Next we discuss the maybe, possible resurrection of Birmingham Small Arms, better known as BSA.  BSA started in the 1860s making guns  and then added bicycles, then motorcycles and at one time made cars, buses, tools among a long list of things.

The BSA brand was bought by the Indian company Mahindra and it is our hope that we might see BSA motorcycles on the road sometime in the not to distance future.

Next up is a review of the results of World Superbike, Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP racing.

You can listen to the show HERE!

The DawgHouse Motorcycle Radio…The #1 Motorcycle Show in the USf

This week on DawgHouse Motorcycle News Rants & Racing show #383

10 Awesome roads to ride from around the world!  These are not the normal rehashed and rehashed set of roads (well mostly).  The #4 road on the list is the Iroha-Zaka in Japan which looks just unbelievable. Check out this map view of the road….d1

In an earlier show (DawgHouse 373) I discussed the possibility that motorcycles may not be allowed on the road as to dangerous to the riders. The framework that is working in Europe now is called “Vision Zero”, the Zero is for zero deaths.

Ken now has to admit I might be right!  Recently the US government has introduced a discussion of a version of Vision Zero and guess what was left out of that discussion…. MOTORCYCLES!  The AMA is worried that the reason the Federal Government left out motorcycles from it future planning is that they want to ban motorcycles.

In racing news…. MotoAmerica’s 2017 season schedule is out and there are some new tracks!!!! They have added Pittsburgh International Race Complex and Sonoma Raceway (and Ken again has to admit Warren was right). AND… Phil likes the change!!!!

This week on the DawgHouse Motorcycle News, Rants & Racing show #382

Phil has a minor rant about … Ghost Rider?!/!?!  Yes he does, Marvel Agents of SHEILD has twisted is nipple becasuse  it is GHOST RIDER not Ghost Driver!  IMHO they hired an actor and then found out he could not ride a motorcycle! It might not be real motorcycle news but it is fun.

Mondial Motorcycles makes a comeback with a scrambler! Ken’s motorcycle news story is about Mondial Motorcycles coming back from the grave.  Neither Phil or I recall ever really hearing about Mondial.  Of course when Ken was riding wheels were still made of stone.

Riding the Isle of Mann TT Course on one wheel. 37 miles on one wheel, gusts up to 40 miles an hour and the course was not closed for the stunt.  This is what Dougie Lampkin had to overcome to do something no one had done before.

AMA Pro Flat Track makes some big changes. Starting with re-branding as American Flat Track.
