This episode celebrates one year of The Pace Motorcycle Podcast.
I broke my jacket and got a new one, Scott sent us another clip, the big GS is available in black, black and more black and the FZ8 comes in any color you want as long as it’s black. Yamaha says you gotta put up or shut up if you want a Super Tenere in the States and Honda might bless us with a new adventurer tourer based on a smaller version of the VFR1200’s mill. Oh yeah… NEW CONTEST!

In the immortal words of Jed Clampett â€œWeeeell, doggies!â€ have we got a show for you this week. Of course we do. We have a show almost every week. This week, however we open with a contribution from someone who actually know stuff about stuff we don’t know all that much about. Then we talk about a whole bunch of Kawasakis including a potential partnership with Bajaj and KTM. We’ll talk about a couple Italians and there are leaks-o-plenty from Triumph and BMW. My bike lost it’s spark, Chad’s prizes are on the way and we have an announcement or two.
We’re flying with out a net this week. That’s right, we recorded the episode “live”. No edits, you get to hear it exactly as it happened. We may have made a terrible mistake. Let us know.
We recorded an abbreviated episode since Chris was on vacation last week. We talked about Harley-Davidson’s 2011 line up, Ducati’s higher zoot 848 Evo and Mr.Â Terblanche’s thoughts on the new Multistrada 1200. Be sure to stay tuned at the end of the show for our long over due follow up on Chris’ CooCase situation.
This week we recap our stellar record in predicting the results of the Cycle World Top 10. We are then joined by Chris Harr while we talk about Suzuki’s triumphant “return” to the U.S. market, Gladiator Rio’s review of the Super Tenere and an iPhone app called TripCast from Jeep. That’s right, Jeep. We close it out with a great conversation about Mr. Harr’s very drool-worthy Aprilia RSV4.
We’ve got it all this week. Boots that keep water in, Barney the Dinosaur and even bigger Bavarian beasts. Then we’ll talk about unidentified things in the woods, something neither of us cares about, electric bikes that might be affordable, and a fleet of electrics from the tuning fork company. Someone can’t count, we’ll bring you the latest installment of Aerostich: Genius or Madness and if you’re keeping score, Chris and I are tied at one each.
