Podcast 322: What Would You Do?

This week on our podcast we throw out some scenarios bikers may encounter, and ask some listeners what they would do. Bike is stolen and you find out where it is? Neighbor sells you a stolen bike? Or how about you loan your bike to a friend who returns it with damage but doesn’t offer to pay for repairs? So what would you do? We also catch up with Brandon who makes more discoveries and comparisons between gas and electric bikes. Liza gives a WRWR update, Henry reviews his new Bell helmet, and listener emails are read (in crappy accents of course).
With Liza, Bagel, Nak, Brandon and Henry.

Podcast 321: What Lubes Your Gears?

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by 4 guests. That’s right, 4 travelers stopped by to experience the Re-Cycle Garage and witness the magic of the podcast. We learn about their stories and experiences, and also we ask them the magic question. We also talk about what has made us happy this week. For some it’s a material thing, and for others it’s an experience. Either way, this is what’s lubing our gears this week.
With Nak, Liza, Bagel, Miss Emma, Zee, Kendra, Arandi, Dean, Naked Jim and Nathan.

Podcast 320: 20 Questions with Mystery Guest Wendy Crockett

This week on our motorcycle podcast we play a little game called Guess the Mystery Guest with Wendy Crockett, who recently was the first woman to win the Iron Butt Rally. These riders are extreme nutters, and Wendy is queen of all the bad asses. She rode 13,000 in just 11 days on her FJR1300. She talks about what it takes to stay comfortable on a long ride, and also her plans to take her whole family on a moto journey in Central and S. America. For this we give her the cool parent award. What a great trip for her 5 year old daughter to experience.
We also talk about the Redwood Rumble Chopper Show, kids in Evel Knievel suits, being featured in the latest AMA magazine, pooping in a river, another possible engine teardown, two-stroke guy, and the appearance of a 79 CB750 in the back of Emma’s truck. And as a bonus, we throw in an Emma’s History Hole on the Honda CB750 for it’s 50th birthday.
With Liza, Bagel, Nak, Michael, Miss Emma and Naked Jim.

Podcast 318: Sheemotos, VnM and a CB750 That Won’t Die

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are off to the races. Well, we went to the MotoAmerica races, though we didn’t actually watch any of the races…..But we test rode bikes, ran into lots of friends and had a ton of fun. We’ll share our experiences on the test rides, which include the Yamaha Niken and a BMW S1000RR.
Our guests this week were also there, but they were hanging with the cool kids in race leathers. Aliki from VnM Sport is here to talk about racing and under garments. And Shiree from Sheemotos is here to talk about racing (and punching Aliki in the uterus) but also she shares her story of overcoming a head injury and later using motorcycling to help women overcome PTSD much like she did. They’ve both got great stories to tell, but we’re going to throw in a bonus story for free. Davis from Atlanta has joined us as well. He’s been riding his 1978 CB750 across the country and spent the day at the shop tearing down his engine and fixing an oil leak. Never ever trust us when we say we want to take a picture with you and your bike. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel people.
With Liza, Nak, Bagel, Miss Emma, Shiree, Aliki, Naked Jim and Davis.

Podcast 317: Killing Squirrels on a Twisted Road

This week on our motorcycle podcast we start the show out with the bad news, and bring it back up all the way to the end. Sadly racer Carlen Dunne has crashed and died while setting a new record at Pikes Peak Hill Climb. This is a huge loss for the world. Also, one of our own was in a freak motorcycle accident, and we send our best wishes to his long recovery. Now lets take it back up. Oh wait, not quite done. Liza and Jim went on an epic ride and managed to kill 1 ground squirrel apiece. Condolences to the squirrels families as well. Okay, now we can take it back up. Mikey 3 Times bought a new bike that he’s going to customize and hopefully become Mikey 4 Times. Austin from Twistedroad.com has joined us to share all the updates and improvements that have been made since his last visit. Now you can find more bikes than ever in almost all the states (NY, what’s thee deal?) and you can get better insurance to make sure you are well covered. Check it out at www.Twistedroad.com
Zee has started a new group called Bunkabiker, where you can list or find places for fellow bikers to crash for the night (maybe crash is a bad choice for words for the biker community)
Lastly we finish with listener emails and go 3 for 3 in answering them.
Congrats to Wendy Crockett for being this year’s Iron Butt Rally winner! Stay to the very end to hear our interview with Carlin Dunne from last year’s Moto Bay Classic.
With Liza, Sara, Miss Emma, Austin, Zee, Naked Jim and Mikey 3 (soon to be 4) Times.
