Episode 90 - The Long Lost Gold Wing Show
The long awaited, probably forgotten, but much talked about Honda Gold Wing video podcast from the Brap Talk Motorcycle Podcast. Hey, it only took us two years to publish it! Of note, we talk a bit about the luggage situation on the 2018 Honda Gold Wing Tour, and thankfully since the release of this show, Honda has increased the luggage size of the top box and it now fits two helmets. Also, this is our first stab at a video podcast - God willing, our future attempts will be a little bit better and a little bit more timely. It was a learning experience. Thanks for watching! Big thanks to American Honda for letting us keep the Gold Wing Tour for way, way too long. Also thanks to Arai Helmets and Sena for sending us some gear - we couldn't have made the show without their help.
