I've got a job interview coming up in which I need to prove myself more than up-to-date on street bikes (motorcycles). I've ridden before so I know the basics (top brands, how they work) but it's not a topic I follow.
So -- how can I cram enough info into my brain within the next three or four days to seem like I'm on top of things? I don't need to be an expert, just at least appear to be knowledgeable about the industry, current trends, latest releases.
I'm not really looking for names of blogs and magazines, but rather tips on learning a topic really quickly. I want to be able to ask smart questions and give smart answers.
