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.

Hello Boys and Girls, 

And welcome to another wonderful interview episode!!!  

You all know by now that I love the Harley Davidson Sportster. I’m a huge fan. What you may also know is that I love when I hear a story of somebody doing something with a Sportster that most people would never do or is completely the most inappropriate bike for the job. Well, my guest tonight has been doing just that and I had to have him on. Drew Clayton, a.k.a. Redbeard the Kilted Rider joins me to tell us about his trip to the Arctic Circle on his Sportster!!
