    Anyone recommend some good motorcycling podcasts? Not too into the plethora of chopper ones out there.

    I like Adventure Rider Radio. They actually have 2 podcasts.
    I find that most of the others aren't that good.

    Let me preface this by saying im not a podcast kinda guy.

    Reel45podcast is the only podcast I listen to, it’s done by 4x world speedway champion Greg Hancock. Its sometimes boring, etc etc, but it’s a cool insight to his career and the people who he helps and has helped him from the beginning of his career in the 80’s.

    The Wheelnerds for sophomoric humor with two dudes making fun of Craig's List ads. Cafe Racer podcast is also pretty good IMHO.

    I dig Motorcycles and Misfits. Good mix of personalities and riding on there.

    I also second Adventure Rider Radio.

    I second Motorcycles and Misfits. I’ve been to their co-op, and they’re a great group of people. Plus, Miss Emma is the mechanic at the shop I take my bikes to for service. I freaking love her!!

    Front End Chatter. Two Brits who are also motojournos. Tends to be UKcentric but very entertaining. Lots of talk about racing and new bikes.

    WheelNerds, Cafe Racer, Chasing the Horizon and 200 Miles Before Breakfast are all great. Also BrapTalk, which replaced Two Enthusiasts, covers a lot of industry stuff along with the usual reviews, etc. and keeps it entertaining.

    I would recommend Adventure Rider Radio, but I find myself enjoying the "Raw" one more - it's a panel show of his frequent RTW-experienced guests (including Grant Johnson from HUBB) - Raw seems to have more 'adventure travel / rtw stories' and practical travel advice than the normal ARR, but both are decent. Sometimes I find ARR has guests which are just product placement for his sponsors, but he's gotta get paid somehow. :)

    I used to listen to a decent podcast called The Pace, but it seems like they stopped posting around Aug 2016 (?), or they don't post to my Android podcast client anymore. The Cafe Racer podcast had some decent eps but I haven't tuned in for a while.

    Motorcycles and Misfits is awesome - support ReCycle Garage in Santa Cruz, CA, if you can!

    Hey guys if you haven't checked us out we do a weekly podcast, it's been going on for about 3 years. We currently have around 15,000 listeners a week and it's growing. We talk about vintage bikes, adv bikes, old bikes new bikes, we go to Mid Ohio, AIM expo, IMS shows... The lead Phil has owned Cleveland Moto for over 25 years and has a shop currently. This is not a "goody goody" podcast. We enjoy some adult beverages and swear a bit. It's basically like hanging out with 4 - 9 (depending on the week) of your best garage buddies..

    Starting 3 weeks ago we upped the audio game (I have been a recording engineer for 25 years) and finally I brought out some gear and things have gotten WAY better.
    It's 100% free.. so please if you get a chance give us a listen!

    Cleveland Moto Podcast
    (New Audio style started on Nov 2nd..)
    And we will have a new episode dropping later today!

    BrapTalk is Asphalt and Rubber's Pod cast. Its my favorite and has got some very good and entertaining discussions about new bikes, equipment and amateur racing this year from moto journalist Jensen Beeler, and Shehene Amundi (sp). For racing I subscribe to brotogp, and the Paddock Podcast. Just started listening to revzilla's highside lowside haven't formed an opinion yet on them. Anyway enjoy.

    "This Motorcycle Life" if you want deep thoughts on why we ride. Very, very enjoyable.

    "Adventure Rider Radio" and the sister pod cast "Adventure Rider Radio RAW" which is a round table of ADV riders sharing stories are both excellent.
