Episode 238 - Interview with Author Christopher Koch 

Hello Boys and Girls 

Here on the podcast I have had interview with guests about Route 66, Historic Route 20 and many other great roads in our nation. One such great road rarely gets a mention and one I didn't know about until I listened to the audiobook "Welcome to Metropolis" by my guest today, Christopher Koch. This wonderful road follows the great Mississippi River from the north all the way to the gulf coast. Aside from the amazing stories he tells us in the book, Chris shared his thoughts and what he learned about the route, Superman, motorcycling and himself on this long, cold journey. Enjoy.

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 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 221 - Interview - The Iron Butt Rally with Chris Comly 

Hello boys and girls!!

Time for another interview........

 So you're thinking of doing some long distance riding events. You've looked into one or more of the many rallies that are out there, you've planned on doing your first Saddle Sore 1000 or maybe you've done it already and are seeking something a little more challenging. You've heard of events like The Void Rally, you've heard of the 50cc, you've heard of the 4 Corners ride and they are on your list. But there's something else. Something bigger, something more challenging. Something that may have your family considering you for some kind of therapy. The Iron Butt Rally. 11 days, 11,000 miles, give or take. Who in their right mind would do this you wonder? A lot of people. It's an addiction. Riders from all over the world gather in various locations every two years to take part in what could be, next to the Tour de France, one of the most grueling events in the world. My guest tonight is has ridden the Iron Butt Rally three times and is likely to ride it again and again. Check out Chris Comly's blog at Chris's Riding Adventures.

Episode 217 - Interview with Miranda Young, Ghost Biker 

Hello boys and girls!!

Time for another interview........

I'm sure you've seen those paranormal shows on TV. They raise your curiosity, heighten your senses, expand your awareness and maybe even have you looking over your shoulder. But none of those people ride motorcycles, so how can we possibly believe anything they say? However my guest today explores the unknown, the unexplained, the paranormal all from the seat of her Harley Davidson. My guest on this crisp Autumn evening in the season of ghouls, goblins, witches and warlocks is Miranda Young.... The Ghost Biker.
