Podcast 238: AMA Legend Wayne Rainey

This week on our motorcycle podcast we head on down to the Moto Talbott museum in Carmel Valley for a special interview. We got the chance to sit down with the one and only Wayne Rainey. Wayne is a legend in motorcycling (no really, the AMA awarded him that title) with 3 world championships under his belt. He also happens to be the president of the MotoAmerica racing series, despite the fact that he had a career ending crash in 93 that left him in a wheelchair. But that hasn’t slowed him down. His post crash life included racing karts and owning his own race team. We dive into the current state of American racing, as well as getting to know a bit about his history, as well as what it takes to get a curve at Laguna Seca named after oneself.
With Liza, Miss Emma, Naked Jim, Nak and Michael.

Podcast 237: It’s Deep, It’s Dark, It’s the Britten V1000

This week on our motorcycle podcast Liza gives an update on the Dakar Rally. Congrats to winner Matthias Walkner. Next up, we hear from Naked Jim, who spent the day at the Corbin factory getting a new seat made and hanging out with Mike Corbin himself. Then we hear from Kat who’s got an R6 with problems no one can figure out, and a Ninja 250 gas tank stripping project. Simmer down boys. Not that kind of stripping. Next we enter Emma’s deep and dark History Hole, where we learn why the Britten V1000 may still be the best bike ever made. But it doesn’t end there. Henry joins us for a crash report, and tell’s us how he’s doing after being hit by a car. Lastly, we finish with listener emails, and answer some hard questions to the best of our abilities.
With Liza, Zach, Devin, Isaac, Bagel, Miss Emma, Kat, Nak, Naked Jim, Bex and Henry.

Podcast 236: Give A Shift

This week on our motorcycle podcast we have a lively crew, and……Zach is back! We get an update on Henry, who crashed during our last recording. Then we get into our main subject with our guest, Robert Pandya. Robert works in the motorcycle industry, and like so many, was concerned about the recession in the industry. He decided to do something about, and started the Give A Shift roundtable discussions with other industry insiders. They’ve been coming together to try to pinpoint the problems, and offer solutions. Although he breaks it down for us, there is no easy solution. But he gives us some suggestions on where we can start.
Next we hear from Nak and Liza who had a recent retail nightmare while trying to be a tool box. Then we get into listener emails, and do our best to answer some questions.
With Liza, Animal Dave, Isaac, Bex, Bagel, Miss Emma, Zach, Nak and Naked Jim.

Podcast 235: Shawn Thomas is Living the BMW Dream Life

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Shawn Thomas of BMW’s (this will make sense once you listen to the show). Shawn is the brand ambassador for BMW when it comes to all things adventure riding. He’s really got the dream job. He’s also been sharing his passion with his daughter Hailey, and has taken her on adventure trips to Costa Rica and Columbia. We learn a lot about Shawn in our interview, and discover he has the weirdest UTB bike we’ve ever heard. Oh yeah, throughout the interview we were getting messages about Henry, who was hit by a car while we were recording. We dispatched people to help him and his bike. (Bike is crunched, Henry has 2 broken bones in his leg but will be okay).
We also read listener emails, draw names for our swag giveaway, talk briefly about the Dakar rally, and mention a cool new site where you can basically airbnb your motorcycle. www.twistedroad.com/
