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.
