We’ve talked to Miguel Galluzzi a few times ourselves in the pages of MO, and even had him grace our screens with his Top 10 Favorite Motorcycles a year ago. I’m not sure you’d expect to see Mr. G in PC Mag, really, but here he is in a quick, yet interesting and wide-ranging interview. Just goes to show you, ahh… something.
