Episode 57: A Poppin’ Good Time

Episode 57 A Poppin’ Good Time
In this episode, Chris’s mic pops. A lot. Then we talk about the rave reviews of the Triumph Tiger 800 family, and James tells Chris how wrong he is about the apparent and rumored new Trophy. Chris fights back with more mic pops to no avail; he ends up on the ropes. Fortunately, the guys are distracted by a voice mail and some email feedback, and the whole mess is rescued when Swingset drops by to talk about his new Dual Sport Podcast and why you should never hang around a certain type of person or two, and why you shouldn’t ride your dual sport motorcycle to a children’s playground. Or something like that.
Also, please note, this is the last new episode of The Pace Motorcycle Podcast for 2010. We’ll be back after a break for the holidays in early January with fresh content, new interviews and a whole new list of things to talk about... Maybe Honda will release a new bike to talk about, eh? Happy Holidays, ride safe and take care everyone. And thank you for a great year of interaction with The Pace. You guys rock!

Episode 49: Triumphantly Honda!

Episode 49 - Oct 17, 2010
Ok, this is the last week we rag on the VFR. Really. I mean... we’ll try. But seriously, the VFR is rumored to be getting a big trailie sibling. That’ll be interesting to see. Right? We talk about how the EPA nerfs bench racing the ZX-10R, but the good news is no one will notice. I mean... who’s gonna wind that thing up that high, right? Triumph continues to be Triumph, and this time they’re doing it with a cruiser - giving away thousands of dollars worth of touring upgrades to the Bonne America. Speaking of Triumph, James talks about his test ride on the Sprint GT and by the sounds of it, one is headed for his garage soon Suzuki gets tricky with pricing on the GZ250, their entry level cruiser-esque bike. Looks like they’re blowing out old stock. Did we mention Triumph? ‘cause we get to see pictures of the upcoming 800 twin in its dirty clothes. Look out F800... The Tiger’s got its eye on your lunch! Guzzi updates the Norge/GT with suspenders and an engine update. Is this the first of the “full line revamp” we talked about a few weeks ago? Or is this maybe Guzzi parts-binning some updates on it before a big change...? Stay tuned. Great things could be headed our way from Carlo’s legacy. We’ll depress you with crappy sales numbers, then lighten the mood with helmets, pictures and contests. We’re like your cranky bipolar uncle, like that. Colleen gets the nod for the tool kit contest, with Sara getting a runner up mention. Rock on Sara! Craig... loved your kit, but hey... Barbie box. ‘nuff said. Stay tuned for more contest news, product reviews and more news about the upcoming video offerings. Big things in store!
