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 230 - Interview with Tim James of Backcountry Discovery Routes 

Hello Boys and Girls, 

If you are the owner of an Adventure Motorcycle or perhaps even a properly equipped dual sport or scrambler, you likely search of routes that will take you off the tarmac and out into the wilderness. While most of us can't afford to take that Ewan and Charlie vacation around the world or through remote areas, there is actually no need to. RIght here in America there are thousands of miles of off-road, wilderness and Backcountry routes one could enjoy solo or with a group. Backcountry Discovery Routes have opened the doors to adventures seekers around the world to discover America in new way, off the beaten path. Tim James joins me today in the V-Twin Cafe to talk about their routes and what riders can expect. Enjoy!!
