Podcast 248: Cat McLeod of Leod Escapes

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Cat McLeod of Leod Escapes. He’s created dream motorcycle trips around the world that take you on an amazing tour that includes track time on a MotoGP track. Whaaaat? That’s right. You can ride a Panigale at Mugello in Italy. Or how about riding on our amazing roads here in N. California, and finish with a day at Laguna Seca. There’s something for everyone here. Good stuff.
But first, we talk about our ride this weekend, and find out who almost died from a stupid mistake. Then Liza crushes the dreams of a new visitor, whilst telling him the realities of what his bike really needs.
Jeremy changed a shock. That’s all.
Then we have Sean McSweeney call in with a report on Daytona Bike Week. Apparently it’s not all Harleys and bikinis. There’s a little bit of everything for everybody, and apparently there’s some racing going on too.
Last up, we read listener emails. Thanks for listening!
With Liza, Harrison, Jeremy, Frank, Bagel, Henry, Cat, Bex, Nak and Naked Jim.

Podcast 246: From Disco Balls to Dildos; Racing with John Knowles

This week on our motorcycle podcast we let Bex take the wheel and drive. We start out talking about what we’re working on in the garage. Then we get an accident update from both Henry and Mike, who learned a lot of valuable lessons dealing with lawyers and insurance agents. Next up we interview MotoAmerica racer John Knowles, who Bex met when she held an umbrella for him at a race. That’s correct, Bex and Kat were umbrella girls. We talk about what it’s like to be a motorcycle racer, and what goes through your head at the starting line.

Next up we play a round of What’s It Worth, British auction style. See how well Miss Emma stacks up against the peanut gallery.
Then we discuss the latest announcement about Harley Davidson partnering with Alta Motors. Will this be the right move for Harley? Or is this a better move for Alta?
