The guys discuss Honda's filling-up lineup of vehicles at every size and price point, Suzuki finally upping their naked bike offerings by announcing a GSR1000, EBR's SX bike... that's a LOT of torque. The Yamaha FZ07 - is it worth it? And hey, if Harley-Davidson can't electrify you, who can?
The E2E Rally is over and the tallying is all done. We announce the winners in this week’s show, and once again, a huge thank you to all the participants, and congratulations to our winners. In the news we discuss everything from new little scooters and small bore bikes, to new big behemoth power cruisers. Sena tells us all about their new offerings and Erik Buell Racing sets pricing on the street version of the 1190… and it’s pretty darned welcome news. Is Suzuki gonna give us a turbo mid-sized street bike? Well, there’s a concept and it seems to be met with praise on all fronts. So, if the court of public opinion matters, I’d say it’s a lock. Stay tuned…
Also, we have lots of feedback stored up for next week.
First place - Entrant #43, Jack Starcher with 2020 points.
Second place - Entrant #179, Sandi Roush with 1906 points.
Third place - Entrant #69, Dan D’Assis with 1578 points.
This week the guys are triumphantly back and triumphantly a day later than hoped... Eh, it happens. Anyway, the guys explore the new VStrom 1000, talk about Buell of India - sort of - and chat about the ongoing rumor out of Italy. Brammo on the rebound... er... recall list. And my goodness, there’s feedback aplenty. Plus... James gets a free tire! FREE TIRE!!! All this and more on The Pace Motorcycle Podcast, found along with the show notes at thepacepodcast.com.
