Episode 245 - Interview with Jerry Cole, Director of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 

Hello boys and girls,

Everyone knows there that each year, we as motorcyclists have the opportunity to attend and be a part of many motorcycle rally's around the world. Some are big and some are small, some have only been around for a few years and some have been going on past 50 years. There are rally's for every type of rider and I'm sure if you devote some time to it, you could find a rally or event that suits your type of riding, the riding demographic you belong to or the location that is best for you. But of all the rally's that happen each and every year, there is one that nearly every rider out there has been to or wants to go to. I'm talking about the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Joining me today in the V-Twin Cafe is the director of the Sturgis Rally, Mr. Jerry Cole.

Hey, now is your chance to get your Motorcycle Men shirt!! Yes, that's right, you can now get yourself a Motorcycle Men short sleeve T, Long Sleeve Tee, Sweatshirt, Hoodie or Polo shirt. The fine folks at Great Plains Apparel were kind enough to put together this wonderful package for us and shirts are waiting for you!! The current store is CLOSED and new store will reopen soon, so stay tuned.

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.
