Podcast 168: Robb Talbott and the Moto Talbott Museum

This week on our motorcycle podcast, we visit the new Moto Talbott motorcycle museum down in Carmel Valley. Education. Preservation. Restoration. This is what this place is all about, and we are so fortunate to have it added to the list of our local attractions. We went mobile on this one, so that we could walk through with Robb and get the stories behind some of these bikes. And let me tell, you, every bike has a story, and Robb knows how to tell it. This will definitely become one of our regular destinations to ride to, and we can’t wait to go back and learn even more.

With Liza, Jim, Isaac, Zach and Mike.

Podcast 310: The Quail Motorcycle Gathering 2019

This week on our motorcycle podcast we head on down to Carmel, CA for the Quail Motorcycle Gathering. This is a not to be missed event, and we go every year to meet cool people, see awesome bikes and get great interviews.
We start off with Rob Dingman President and CEO of the AMA, and talk about Malcolm Smith and how the AMA will classify electric bikes in racing events.
Then we talk with Jim Carducci, of Carducci Dual Sport Motorcycles. He made a Harley Baja Racer for Tony Gera, who will compete in the Iron Man event on this sweet bike. We all agree that this is a bike we’d love to kick a leg over some day.
Next up is Stefano Benatti, GM of Energica Motorcycles. Fellow Misfit Brandon joins us to learn more about this first of many electric bike companies represented at the Quail this year.
We checked out the Curtiss Motorcycles booth which included their new electric bike, and talked to CEO Matt Chambers about the transition from Confederate to Curtiss, and how their electric bike is truly different from anything else out there.
Helite airbag vests were there too, so we stopped by to talk to Knute about their new airbag jackets, which give you no clue to the airbag hidden inside. I predict that this will be a common thing in most jackets to come.
We stopped and talked to our friend Robb Talbott of the MotoTalbott museum. He shared some stories about some of his bikes on display, including a Montessa that was spared from the crusher and perfectly restored.
Did you know there’s a Canadian company making electric bikes? We didn’t either until we saw them at the Quail, where we met Jean Pierre, president of Lito Motorcycles, who told us all about them.

Podcast 238: AMA Legend Wayne Rainey

This week on our motorcycle podcast we head on down to the Moto Talbott museum in Carmel Valley for a special interview. We got the chance to sit down with the one and only Wayne Rainey. Wayne is a legend in motorcycling (no really, the AMA awarded him that title) with 3 world championships under his belt. He also happens to be the president of the MotoAmerica racing series, despite the fact that he had a career ending crash in 93 that left him in a wheelchair. But that hasn’t slowed him down. His post crash life included racing karts and owning his own race team. We dive into the current state of American racing, as well as getting to know a bit about his history, as well as what it takes to get a curve at Laguna Seca named after oneself.
With Liza, Miss Emma, Naked Jim, Nak and Michael.
