Podcast 250: Kids These Days – Racing with Ryder and Evan of MotoCrew USA

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by junior riders Ryder and Evan of the MotoCrew USA team.

We get to know the racers, and also learn about what it takes to support your kids in racing.
We let the kids go (they have bedtimes after all)and catch up on the latest goings on in the garage, and answer some questions from listener emails.
With Liza, Nak, Jim, Bagel, Miles, Ryder, Evan, Michael and the peanut gallery.

Podcast 248: Cat McLeod of Leod Escapes

This week on our motorcycle podcast we are joined by Cat McLeod of Leod Escapes. He’s created dream motorcycle trips around the world that take you on an amazing tour that includes track time on a MotoGP track. Whaaaat? That’s right. You can ride a Panigale at Mugello in Italy. Or how about riding on our amazing roads here in N. California, and finish with a day at Laguna Seca. There’s something for everyone here. Good stuff.
But first, we talk about our ride this weekend, and find out who almost died from a stupid mistake. Then Liza crushes the dreams of a new visitor, whilst telling him the realities of what his bike really needs.
Jeremy changed a shock. That’s all.
Then we have Sean McSweeney call in with a report on Daytona Bike Week. Apparently it’s not all Harleys and bikinis. There’s a little bit of everything for everybody, and apparently there’s some racing going on too.
Last up, we read listener emails. Thanks for listening!

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.
