Episode 241 - Interview with Jamie of Cardo Systems 

Hello Boys and Girls!!!

With the plethora of motorcycle electronic accesories out there, the one thing that many connected riders want is a good communication system. Most of these riders want a system that will allow them to make or receive phone calls, talk with their buddies on the group ride, listen to music and hear the directions from their GPS. These systems come in all shapes and sizes and from many different sources. Whether if it's a budget priced system from Amazon or one from the major manufacturers, each of these systems have their own personal approach to rider communications and each will appeal to a different rider. Joining me today in the V-Twin Cafe is Jamie Cheek of Cardo Systems to tell us all about their side of the communications market.

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.
