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.

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!!
