Episode 238 - Interview with Author Christopher Koch 

Hello Boys and Girls 

Here on the podcast I have had interview with guests about Route 66, Historic Route 20 and many other great roads in our nation. One such great road rarely gets a mention and one I didn't know about until I listened to the audiobook "Welcome to Metropolis" by my guest today, Christopher Koch. This wonderful road follows the great Mississippi River from the north all the way to the gulf coast. Aside from the amazing stories he tells us in the book, Chris shared his thoughts and what he learned about the route, Superman, motorcycling and himself on this long, cold journey. Enjoy.

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 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.
