Moto Guzzi Griso 8V ‘Real-Time’ and More

Motorcycle Podcast

It’s Memorial Day weekend here in the United States and the crew at the Motorcycle Radio Network would like to send out a special thank you to all the men and women who have served our country in the Armed Forces. Your selfless dedication has made this the greatest country in the world.

This week’s show has another one of those "Don’t Miss" interviews with one of the most incredible women in all of motorcycling. As unlikely as it sounds, if there was such as collection as "The Best Of Bill and Todd" our interview this week with Brenda Fox would be a sure thing. Whether Brenda is profiling on a $100,000 custom bike, ripping through a curve on a leaned-over sportbike or simply standing in front of a camera making any bike near her look so much better, Brenda does it all and does it with style.

But there’s another side to Brenda, and that is her courageous battle with breast cancer. Brenda tells Bill and Todd how the motorcycle community helped her through this challenge, and then continues with what drives this actress-model-stuntwoman-journalist-survivor-entrepreneur. She even tells us how to get Freddie Spencer to "scare the Twinkies" out of you!

If you happened to miss the show, go here to the Motorcycle Radio Network podcast of the interview with Brenda Fox. Do you want to make the interview even better? You can go to Brenda Fox’s awesome at and check it out while listening to the interview!

Next, our favorite California Italian Editor has managed to spend some time with yet another Italian in California. Mike joins us this week with another Real Time Road Test and rides into the super secret test facility on Moto Guzzi’s new all-around superstar, the Griso 1200 8V. Bill and Mike go in-depth about the unique aspects of Moto Guzzi’s trademark transverse V-Twin configuration and the Griso’s single-sided swing arm, and Todd confesses his love of the sculptured exhaust and the exceptionally clean integration of the oil cooler. Mike straps on his helmet and zips up his leathers, connects the Cardo Scala Rider wireless headset and takes us for a blast on the Griso around the M1 roadcourse.

Here’s the link to the Real Time Road Test of Moto Guzzi’s 8V. The podcast will open in a separate window so you can listen while continuing to surf.

Early in the show, Bill and Todd discussed the awesome new high-speed ice riding videos and pictures at the Buell Extreme (Europe) website. Before you jump to the site, just be warned… You might want to break out that old baseball cup before you consider trying Craig Jones’ Meat Grinder simulation at home! Yes, those are ice spikes and yes, they really are rotating within a fraction of an inch of Damen Wing’s Original Equipment.
