Episode 253 - Interview with Austin of Twisted Road 

Hello boys and girls, 

If you are traveling to some far off location, and you may say to yourself “I really would like to ride a bike while I’m there”. So you have a few options, but usually the only option is to rent one brand or two of bike. But suppose you want to try something completely different. Well, my guest today is the guy you want to deal with. So if you’re traveling to anywhere in the united states, and you want a bike to rent when you get to your destination, you’ll want to get ahold of Twisted Road. Joining me here in the V-Twin café is Austin Rothbard to tell us all about it.

Hey, now is your chance to get your Motorcycle Men shirt!! Yes, that's right, you can now get yourself a Motorcycle Men short sleeve T, Long Sleeve Tee, Sweatshirt, Hoodie or Polo shirt. The fine folks at Great Plains Apparel were kind enough to put together this wonderful package for us and shirts are waiting for you!!

Episode 237 - Interview with Bryan of the Historic Route 20 Association 

Hello Boys and Girls

You have heard me here on the podcast talk about highway and various roadways that we can all ride our motorcycles on. While roads like California’s Pacific Coast Highway and Route 66 are iconic and many tour companies offer tours on these roads, what they lack is more. More of it to keep you engaged. More to see and more to do. Though those roads and others like them are great and perhaps historic, they lack that coast to coast adventure you might be looking for. From time to time you’ve also heard me mention the longest highway in America. Route 20, stretching from Boston, Massachusetts to Newport Oregon. My guest today is Bryan Farr of the Historic Route 20 Association and he's here to tell us all about this little known, but historic route across America.

Episode 235 - Interview with Erik from EagleRider 

Hello Boys and Girls, 

Sometimes when you travel you just can’t take your motorcycle either because you’re traveling with family or you’re on a business trip and there’s no down time to enjoy two wheels. Or maybe you decide to take a trip to a destination far enough away that you just don’t have the time to ride to the destination, so you fly there, rent a car and see it all from the comfort and confines of a little container to view the world as you drive on by. But there is another option and my guest is here today to tell us all about it. Erik Seversen of Eagle Rider joins me in the V-Twin Cafe for a chat about the services they offer.
