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.
With Bex, Frank, Naked Jim, Nak, Bagel, John, Kat, Liza, Award Winning Mike and Henry. Special appearance by Mike the Squid.

Podcast 244: Mystery Guest with Author Mike Rinowski

This week on our motorcycle podcast we play a new game of Mystery Guest. We ask the Misfits to ask yes or no questions and try to figure out what amazing thing our mystery guest has accomplished. But since his journey is so unique, they fail miserably at this game.
Mike Rinowski put 41,000 miles on his Fatboy traveling around Vietnam. It started out as just a way to spend his free time, but turned into an emotional journey paying homage to our lost soldiers there. And on his return to the states, he rode that same bike across America to visit the Vietnam Memorial Wall, which brought everything full circle for him. He tells the store of this awesome experience in his book, Harley Tracks: Across Vietnam to The Wall.
Next up we find out we hear from Mike about his new bikes. Charley does an upgrade on his brakes. Mycah learns a lesson about petcocks. Liza reveals a new toy. Nak goes on a drunken rant. Lastly, we read listener emails.
With Liza, Henry, Mycah, Charley, Bagel, Neighbor Mike, Miss Emma, Award Winning Mike, Nak, Naked Jim, Saunja and Julie.
