Podcast 272: Zee Traveler is Living the Moto Life

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Zee Traveler. She took off on a 1 month motorcycle trip 2 years ago, and found the calling for the moto life. She’s logged 42,000 miles so far, and has big plans to continue traveling. She’s experiencing life the way many of us wish we could, but she’s also made the sacrifices needed to be a nomad. She left her family behind, and has found her place in this bigger moto family.
Next up, we play a new game called “Lets Be Honest”, where we reveal the real cc size of some very common bikes. Then we discuss some big news, including plans for a new trip from Charley and Ewan called Long Way Up, and the new V8 electric bike from Curtiss called the Hera.
Lastly we finish with listener emails.
With Liza, Miss Emma, Zee, Henry and Isaac.

Podcast 271: The Moto Bay Classic

This week on our motorcycle podcast we ventured up to San Francisco to attend the first annual Moto Bay Classic by Roland Sands Design.
This event was amazing! There was cops vs. hooligans gymkhana, flat track racing, live music stage, art, custom bikes, vendors, food, and an amazing view. Emma and Liza wandered the event looking for good people to interview, and came up with some great ones. We talk to Roland Sands about putting on this event; Gage McAllister and his fast as f**k Alta Redshift; Carlin Dunne about setting records at Pike’s Peak; Trevor Doniak and riding for Zero; Austin Rothbard with a Twistedroad.com update; and some of the police officers about the techniques and training required to do stop to stop turns and control.
We also play a game about pronouncing those words we all say wrong, like Klim and Moto Guzzi. Play along and see how well you do.
Congratulations to our winners this month. Rick DeBellis won the free rental with Twistedroad.com, and Keith Martinson won our Patreon Prize Pack full of swag and tools.
With Liza, Bagel, Jeremy, Emma, Nak and Henry.

Podcast 268: LA Stories

Liza and Jim took a trip to LA to take in as much of the SoCal motorcycle culture as they could, conducting interviews along the way. This show features some of the highlights.
They start with the Custom Revolution exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum where Paul D’Orleans has helped to curate an exhibit of custom bikes from around the world. And with the Petersen’s know how in displaying vehicles in new and insightful ways, you can spend hours staring and taking in all the details in craftsmanship. They also explore the other motorcycles throughout the museum, getting stories along the way, and even getting access to the bikes in the vault not currently on display.
Next they visit the Garage Company, brain child of builder and collector Yoshi Kosaka. This place is a museum and a custom bike building wonderland. Definitely want to go back and spend more time there. They were fortunate to run into builder Jeremy Hutch, who they had met at the One Show in Portland. They sit down with Hutch and learn more about his background and building style.
Lastly they visit the famed Lucky Wheels Garage, a co-op motorcycle space that immediately feels like coming home. They threw a little barbeque co-hosted with Junky Turdman from the Creative Riding Podcast, and ask the attendees Liza’s favorite question.
