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.

Episode 234 - Interview with Craig from Wild-Ass Seats 

Hello Boys and Girls, 

Let’s say you’ve just got back from a 300 mile ride, or a 50 mile ride and you are in pain. Not a headache or your hands. Maybe it’s your back and or your butt that is aching. Suppose you can’t stay on your bike for more than an hour and your butt gets sore and perhaps parts of you fall asleep. Being in pain on the bike is a bad thing and doesn’t lend to any pleasure which is why get on the bike in the first place. My guest today will help you remove that pain and discomfort while you are riding and put that smile back on your face when you take on that next big ride. Craig from Wild-Ass Seats joins me in the V-Twin Cafe.

Episode 129 - Interview with Long Distance HD Street 500 rider Brian Gosney 

Hello boys and girls!!!

In this episode I had a great conversation with someone who set me straight about the Harley Davidson Street 500. I've always bashed the Street series for their lack of typical Harley fit and finish and their revision to some Harley standards like self cancelling signals. Well, my guest Brian "The Brain" Gosney showed me the light and proved that a lightweight bike like the Street 500 is quite capable for long distance rides.

Don't forget kids to head on over to our Facebook page and give that a like. Also subscribe to our YouTube channel because there are big things coming to that soon and you do not want to miss it! Consider donating to the show to help us improve and get you the best Motorcycle Men experience we can give you.

Please listen to other motorcycle Podcasts that talk about and support our passion. Also, praise the motorcycle and encourage others who don't ride that motorcycling is a sport, pastime and mode of transportation that will give them more happiness than any 4-wheeled vehicle can.
