words of wisdom

I listen to a lot of podcasts. And I mean a lot; I’m basically wired in all day, every day. Some are entertaining, some are all about learning and of course there’s a bunch of motocross podcasts I listen to, my favourite being The Whiskey Throttle Show. Recently, I listened to a long interview with Craig Johnston on a podcast called Kurt Fearnley’s Tiny Island. Kurt is famous as one of the greatest wheelchair athletes of all time.

bike sales continue to fall

The story of bike sales was, again, not a great one in 2019. The market fell 6.1 per cent over 2018 and it’s getting tiresome writing that surely this is the low point, only to find out it gets worse. Offroad bikes remained the strongest segments with a 38.5 per cent share of sales (which is 1.6 per cent down on 2019), with Yamaha topping the dirtbike sales ahead of Honda and KTM. Honda sold the most bikes overall, followed by Yamaha with a big gap back to Kawasaki, KTM and Suzuki, who are somewhat tightly bunched.…
