Podcast 275: Breaking the Law with Matt from Law Tigers

This week on our motorcycle podcast we’re joined by Matt from Law Tigers. Law Tigers is a law firm that specializes in motorcycle related cases. We talk to Matt about the first thing you want to do after an accident, and fitting enough, he was able to impart this advice on Harrison who was hit by a car up the street while Matt was there. We also talk about insurance coverage, theft, lane splitting and other controversial topics.
Then we discuss the self driving BMW GS that was in the video we shared earlier this week. Is the man trying to take away our right to ride our bikes under our own control? Or is the man just trying to give us technology that can save lives? Listen to find out our opinions. Lastly we finish with emails and answer a question about if it’s worth salvaging a free bike.
Congrats to Rowdy R, this months winner of the free Twisted Road rental. And also congrats to this month’s Patreon Prize Pack winner, Michael S.

Podcast 274: John Knowles and the Minibike Endurance Race

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by racer Johnny Knowles, who reports on his recent 24hr race on a minibike. It’s a team event, so he didn’t ride the full 24 hrs alone, but he still managed to complete 120 laps per shift which is no easy task.
But first we get some ride reports from the Misfits, including Paul who did ride 24 hours straight, just to be a Misfit for a day.
We also hear from Kat who has renewed her faith in her Ninja 250 with the help of a drill bit to the carb. Then Nak tries to give everyone a lesson in physics, but we’re still not sure he’s right. But he does, so he’ll sleep great tonight.
And finally we read listener emails, one of which brings up the great helmet law debate again.
With Liza, Nak, Kat, Bagel, Johnny, Paul, Henry, Naked Jim and Justin.
