  • Moto PG Ep 096: Surprise!

    May 20th, 2023  |  1 hr 17 mins

    Life is full of surprises. There's the unwelcome kind, like when the doctor says "I have your test results. I'm afraid it's gonorrhea" and then there's the more pleasant kind, like this episode of the greatest Motorcycling Podcast On Earth when Simon Crafar returns to talk all things Moto GP. Crafar is one of the most respected analysts in the business which begs the question: Why would he be part of this nonsense not once, but twice? Apparently he likes the lads. So much so he even has Borries's books. (Hint, have YOU bought Borrie's books? Go to http://shocknawe.com.au now and do it if you haven't already. Then come back and listen to Simon. It's the most sensible episode since the last time he was on.)

  • Moto PG Ep 095: We've Got Budgies Bigger Than That

    May 17th, 2023  |  1 hr 33 mins

    Freido is away on 'Big Business' but never fear, Boris and Tug are in complete control. And if you believe that you must be a first time listener so welcome to the madness that is MotoPG, the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast on Earth that sometimes even talks about motorcycling. When it's not bogged down in talk of choomlas and Borrie's books (which are good, and you should buy). If you've been here before you know what to expect. If you haven't, proceed with caution. You might love it. We do.

  • Moto PG Ep 094: There's A Good Market In Vintage Merkins (and Dennis Savic is in studio)

    May 3rd, 2023  |  2 hrs 21 mins

    What do women's pubic wigs have to do with the greatest sport in the world? Nothing, of course. But when the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast On Earth puts the two together you know that somewhow it must make sense. So press play and find out how. You won't regret it. (Actually, you might regret it but you won't know unless you try, will you? It's a conundrum, yes, but these are the things that make life interesting. Now forget the philosophy, did you bitches buy Borrie's books yet? Shame and a pox on the house of every single one of you who hasn't. There's a special place in hell reserved for people who don't support the big man. It's the Serbian section and believe me when I tell you, if you're not Serbian you're going to have a hard time fitting in. And it's for eternity. So don't be one of those fools, go to shocknawe.com.au now and start shopping. You won't regret it....(see above). Oh, and Dennis Savic joins the show to answer some of your questions about electric motorcycles. It's not funny (well it is a bit) but it's mostly informative and educational.

  • Moto PG Ep 093: Daddy, What's a Man Choomla?

    April 19th, 2023  |  1 hr 55 mins

    Before we get on to this week's episode, did you bitches buy Borrie's books yet? The big man does nothing but give to you people, week in and week out, and asks nothing in return. Except that you buy his books. Which you should because they're good. Really good. If you haven't bought one of Borrie's books you should be ashamed of yourself and your life choices and do something about it immediately by going to shocknawe.com.au and pressing the 'Add to Cart' button wherever you see it. Go now, before you even press play.

  • Moto PG Ep 092: There's No Fat Germans

    April 5th, 2023  |  2 hrs 2 mins

    There is a very simple answer to all the questions we receive about the greatest motorcycling podcast on earth here at MotoPG HQ. That answer is: 'you'll have to listen'. For example, somebody will ask this week 'Where do you get these episode titles from?' and the answer is 'you'll have to listen'. 'Why is he called The Captain?' someone will say and the answer is 'you'll have to listen.' 'Why should Borrie's Poem legitimately be considered high art?' 'You'll have to listen'.You get the idea. So if the question this week is 'What happened in Argentina and why are Boris and the boys the only ones who can really tell me' then the answer is, you guessed it, 'you'll have to l listen'. So now that you've got the hang of it we don't need to tell you what to do next, do we? Oh, and visit our sponsors and buy stuff from them (there's a handy list with links below) and then go to our website and buy stuff from us. We're in this for the money bitches. Your money. So hand it over.

  • Moto PG Ep 091: Put Some Lemon On This!

    March 29th, 2023  |  2 hrs 14 mins

    It's back bitches! And it's glorious. The gift that keeps on giving once again exceeded expectations to kick off 2023 and Freido, Tug and Boris are here to highlight all the highlights. From the new sprint race to the Captain bitching and Jack Miller flying, there was something for everyone at Portimao. Ep 91 has all the usual insight and analysis from the world of Moto GP and beyond plus there's Borrie's Poem, Rossi's Instructions and the new segment that's sure to be a hit, The Captain's letter. So go ahead and press play. You either will or won't regret it but either way we get to add your download to the invoice we send the sponsors. And at the end of the day, isn't that what it's all about?

  • Moto PG Ep 090: Boris Flies Solo

    February 15th, 2023  |  1 hr 9 mins

    It's not quite The Beatles breaking up but Boris flying solo with no Tug or Freido might be just as confronting. Sadly, though, that's where we find ourselves this week folks with both Tug and Freido indisposed leaving the Big Man unsupervised at the microphone. Thank God the Dirty Badger dropped in to break things up a bit. It's all about testing this week which, as Boris so eloquently notes, tells us everything and nothing about what to expect for 2023. It's a Moto PG with a difference so get it in your ears now. And if you don't like it shut up and keep it to yourself. We'll resume normal programming next episode.

  • Moto PG Ep 089: Pin The Gas On The Podcast

    January 17th, 2023  |  30 mins 11 secs

    Americans aren't like us. Well most of them, anyway. But some are a bit like us and we've found some in the world of Moto GP podcasting. As most of you already know the vast majority of Moto GP podcasts are rubbish. that's why you're here. But the lads at Pin The Gas are different. Because they're more like us. See? Try to keep up people. Anyway, they had Boris on their podcast as a guest awhile back so we're returning the favour in our summer sessions and introducing them to you. Sort of a 'you scratch our back and we'll scratch yours' arrangement. (Anybody who scratches Boris' back deserves a guest appearance. Braver men than us, that's for sure.) So press play and enjoy. We did.

  • Moto PG Ep 088: Simon Crafar. Enough Said

    January 10th, 2023  |  1 hr 31 mins

    When this podcast launched the simple concept (or 'business plan') was to capture the demented ramblings of three self appointed motorcycle racing experts and see if anybody thought they were funny. And to the amazement of many (including themselves), people did. And there was merriment and much laughter and mirth as our three loveable clowns brought their own brand of 'analysis' to the world of Moto GP and motorcycling more generally. But nobody's laughing any more because it turns out people are taking them seriously. And not just unhinged people who don't know any better but serious, knowledgeable people. People who are legitimate analysts and who actually do know what they're talking about. People like Simon Crafar. Yes, you read that right, Simon f*#*ing Crafar. THE Simon Crafar, from the TV. Right here on the Moto PG podcast. So get it in your ears. It's the most sensible thing you'll ever hear on this show.

  • Moto PG Ep 087: The Ginger Ninja Ready To Roll In 2023

    January 3rd, 2023  |  21 mins 32 secs

    Party's over bitches. Christmas is in the rear view mirror and it's 2023 so time to get back to work ahead of what's going to be another crazy season of racing and podcasting. We're kicking off the New Year by chatting with one of Australia's best racing prospects, the Ginger Ninja Joel Kelso, who also happens to be one of the sport's best interviews. Press play now to find out if Kelso really did organise Pedro Acosta's first root (and plenty of other stuff, too).

  • Moto PG Ep 086: Happy Merrynium

    December 27th, 2022  |  31 mins 46 secs

    Last week it was Whitney Houston but the inspiration for this week's episode comes from the late, great English comedian Sean Lock who coined the magnificent term 'Merrynium' to describe the week between Christmas and New Year. You know, that bit between two other bits that nobody's really sure what to do with? So to celebrate the 2022 Merrynium, we bring you Episode 4 of the Moto PG Summer Sessions. Today's guest is Nigel Harvey, a man everybody who loves motorcycles and motorcycling should want to know because Nigel is the Marketing Director of Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Triumph Australia. That means Nigel has access to some of the most beautiful motorcycles on the planet and also explains why Boris loves him so much. Enjoy.

  • Moto PG Ep 085: We Believe That Children Are Our Future

    December 20th, 2022  |  35 mins 33 secs

    Like Whitney Houston, we here at MotoPG believe that children are our future. And that motorcycle riding is the Greatest Love of All. And so on this episode of Summer Sessions we meet some of those children that are our future, the Moto GP stars of tomorrow. Senna Agius and Luke Power are two young riders with the world at their feet. In fact, the only lapse in judgement either has shown to this point in their respective careers is to appear on this podcast. So enjoy it, because it may be the last mistake either of them make.

  • Moto PG Ep 084: The Man, The Myth, The Legend...The Ax

    December 13th, 2022  |  36 mins 45 secs

    There's a few words we throw around too freely in sport. Penultimate is one but legend is another. Genuine legends are few and far between but nobody in Australian motorcycle racing would dispute the fact that Wayne Maxwell is one of them. He's officially pulled the pin on his career but as you'll find out on this episode he's still got plenty to contribute.

  • Moto PG Ep 083: The Summer Sessions and FREE BEER!

    December 6th, 2022  |  54 mins 52 secs

    Just because there's no racing doesn't mean there's no Moto PG. Boris, Tug and Freido are nothing if not innovative so to keep you all entertained during the off season they came up with the brilliant idea of the Summer Sessions where they will interview guests, organise giveaways and try to dream up new ways of squeezing more money out of this hot mess. There will be poems, profanity and plenty of childish humour but to make sure you all listen there is also free beer. Yes, you read that right - FREE BEER. How, you ask? Well it's thanks to MASH Brewing but you'll just have to tune in to find out more (and don't pretend you weren't expecting that).

  • Moto PG Ep 082: Boris Of The Overflow

    November 9th, 2022  |  1 hr 46 mins

    Our intrepid trio aren't the types to look back. Lord knows, the carnage they would see if they did might just make them stop and think and stopping and thinking are NOT among their strengths. But the season is over and so there must be harsh judgement made with the benefit of hindsight and this is very much in their wheelhouse. Boris has a poem (that doesn't miss anyone) and The Captain, Rossi and George all weigh in with end of season thoughts. Freido has joined Twitter (and people think Elon Musk is the one who will ruin it), Tug has some predictions for 2023 and a plan has been hatched for a MotoPG Christmas party (the word 'plan' is doing A LOT of work here). So hit the play button and find out why four out of five people agree this is the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast On Earth.

  • Moto PG Ep 081: Like A Beaver Full Of Cheese

    October 26th, 2022  |  1 hr 24 mins

    'The art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts.' None of these words from dictionary.com's definition of poetry relate in any way to what Boris delivers each episode. For that, you would need to add terms like tawdry, profane, puerile, defamatory and NSFW. Oh, and entertaining. As this week's effort - 'The Hot Girl Yogurt' - proves. It is as offensive as the title suggests and yet, somehow, the giant mad bastard makes it work. There's other stuff in this episode, too, but really, it's the poem that steals the show. Again. Get it in your ears, people. It won't make you a better person but it will make you laugh and ultimately, that's all we can really hope for isn't it?
