Episode 134, in which Rod Holmes invents an adventure motorcycle trailer and starts PASQ

It’s another in our quick-and-dirty summer episodes! Well, except that it’s not all that quick (it’s really a normal episode) – we did maintain the possibility of getting dirty.

If you ride an ADV bike (and soon to be non-ADV bikes, if Rod has his way) and you’ve sought a better solution to your gear-hauling needs than a heavy steel trailer hitch and a squat, two-wheels-on-one-axle fiberglass trailer, you’ll want to check out this episode.

Rod Holmes and his very small team have come up with an all-aluminum, single-track trailer especially well suited for adventure bikes, which is where they’re starting, but it’s eventually going to be more than that. Listen in to find out all about it!

You can visit PASQ on their website or via their Instagram and YouTube presences.

The news in this episode looks at a recent Federal Trade Commission rebuke of Harley-Davidson that has right-to-repair folks all up in a tizzy, and we look into why BMW Motorrad says they’re not going to make any hybrid gas/electric motorcycles.
