Episode 246 - Interview with Jess of Her Two Wheels YouTube Channel 

Hello boys and girls, 

One of my favorite things to do when I'm at home, working out, sitting in my office is to watch YouTube videos. While I do watch many channels that are entertainment based, gaming, music, concerts, as you can imagine the vast majority of the channels that I watch are motorcycle related and most of them are Vlogs of some sort where the rider is documenting their travels or just out for a short spin to share thoughts during their ride. While I enjoy the vlogs of adventure, where the rider is traveling great distances, I also have a fondness for the 10-Minute scoot around the block for a cup of coffee and some silly banter. My guest today shares with us that cup of coffee, entertaining conversations and an insight into what its like to be a women rider from the seat of her Harley Davidson. Jess, of the Her Two Wheels YouTube Channel joins me in the V-Twin Cafe.

 

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
