This week on our motorcycle podcast, we hear from Bex, who managed to escape death when a mechanic forgot to tighten some important bolts on her bike.
Next up we hear from Bex and Bagel, who give a ride report from the Mods and Rockers ride last week in San Francisco.
Then our special guest Cat McLeod of Leod Escapes shares with us tips for moto traveling in Italy. Live to Ride, Ride to Eat is certainly a motto here. He also has some great tips for packing, and renting a motorcycle.

Lasty, we finish with emails and insults from Nak.

Podcast 310: The Quail Motorcycle Gathering 2019

This week on our motorcycle podcast we head on down to Carmel, CA for the Quail Motorcycle Gathering. This is a not to be missed event, and we go every year to meet cool people, see awesome bikes and get great interviews.
We start off with Rob Dingman President and CEO of the AMA, and talk about Malcolm Smith and how the AMA will classify electric bikes in racing events.
Then we talk with Jim Carducci, of Carducci Dual Sport Motorcycles. He made a Harley Baja Racer for Tony Gera, who will compete in the Iron Man event on this sweet bike. We all agree that this is a bike we’d love to kick a leg over some day.
Next up is Stefano Benatti, GM of Energica Motorcycles. Fellow Misfit Brandon joins us to learn more about this first of many electric bike companies represented at the Quail this year.
We checked out the Curtiss Motorcycles booth which included their new electric bike, and talked to CEO Matt Chambers about the transition from Confederate to Curtiss, and how their electric bike is truly different from anything else out there.
Helite airbag vests were there too, so we stopped by to talk to Knute about their new airbag jackets, which give you no clue to the airbag hidden inside. I predict that this will be a common thing in most jackets to come.
We stopped and talked to our friend Robb Talbott of the MotoTalbott museum. He shared some stories about some of his bikes on display, including a Montessa that was spared from the crusher and perfectly restored.
Did you know there’s a Canadian company making electric bikes? We didn’t either until we saw them at the Quail, where we met Jean Pierre, president of Lito Motorcycles, who told us all about them.

Podcast 309: And The Award Goes To……..

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are graced with the presence of her holy highness Liza, who was awarded the Friend of the AMA award and won’t shut up about it. But first, we’d like to bring you a message from the Motorcycle Safety Council, and remind you kids to always wear your helmets. Kat P. the human lawn dart, gives us a crash report. If there was ever a case of a helmet making the difference between life and death, then this is it. We are so grateful that she was wearing all the right gear and was able to join us this weekend to talk about it.
Next up we give a report on some of the highlights from this year’s Quail Motorcycle Gathering, including the previous mentioned award. (I told you she wouldn’t stop talking about it)
Then we are joined by our guests Jess and Justin, who are traveling around the country with two small displacement bikes in tow, and are riding them around the cities they are visiting. What a great way to travel, but of course when you spend $1000 on two old bikes, you’re going to expect some challenges. But that seems to just make it more fun for Justin.
Lastly, we read emails, and answer some questions that may or may not be helpful.
With Liza, Kat, Derrik, Nak, Bagel, Miss Emma, Jess, Justin, Naked Jim, Douglas and Kat P.

Podcast 308: Still Dancing with Tyler Risk

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Tyler Risk, who has an amazing story of recovery after a crash. She rides a Can Am and loves it so much, she bought two!
We also hear about what got fixed today (a Harley) and what didn’t (a KTM). Jim and Liza give their ride report from their search for the perfect dirt road.
Then it’s time for another Emma’s History Hole. That’s right friends, she’s back! And this time she tells us all about the history of the Mods & Rockers. So get comfy for this one. We’ve got some good stories coming at you. Oh, and don’t forget to turn left. (wink-wink)

This week on our motorcycle podcast we find Liza alone at the garage with 2 broken Harleys. Listen to find out if she was any help at all.

Bagel gives a report on a group ride in N. Cali, Nak, Liza and Anna give a report on the MotoBird/Law Tigers adventure ride in Carrizo Plains during a superbloom, and Liza and Jim have ride reports from the WRWR Ripple Relay through the Santa Cruz mountains and coastline.

Podcast 305: Moto Journalist Gabe Ets-Hokin

This week on our motorcycle podcast Liza shares stories from her illegal dirt biking trip in the Santa Cruz mountains. Then we here from our guest, moto journalist Gabe Ets, Hokin. Have you ever thought that these journalists have it made in the shade, getting all the free stuff and going on amazing moto journeys? Well, that’s partly true. Gabe shares stories from the road and behind the pen. We also somehow manage to get onto the subject of electric motorcycles. Don’t know how that happened, but coincidentally Electric Terry always seems to be in the room. Speaking of Terry, he shares a frightening experience that happened to him today involving a crazy person. Then again, it’s a blurry line as to who the crazy person is in this story. The one who attacked Terry? Or the one that rides around with a full grown husky on his tank? You be the judge.
With Liza, Electric Terry, Bagel, Nak, Gabe, Henry and Jesse.

Podcast 304: Building an Electric Streamliner with Shea Nyquist

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Shea and his fiancee Amanda. Shea got a crazy idea to set a speed record by building his own electric streamliner. How hard could it be? Well, apparently not too hard for Shea, because he’s doing it. This thing will be fast. Maybe 300 mph fast. He’s going to be testing it out this year to see what it can do, but in the meantime you can follow him on his youtube channel, Istagram and Facebook.
We also share some stories from our recent visit to a Harley Davidson dealership, and what we’re working on in the garage. Congratulations to Drew Faulkner for winning our Twistedroad.com contest.
With Liza, Electric Terry, Nak, Bagel, Miss Emma, Amanda, Shea, Jeremy and James.
