About this Episode

In this episode I have two special guests. Shana Sanderson, Executive Vice President of Operations for the Women Riders World Relay (WRWR). And her husband, Eugene Sanderson, who has been instrumental in supporting Shana in her day to day role in WRWR, and who also handcrafted the batons that are passed woman to woman in the WRWR Global Relay and the WRWR U.S. Ripple Relay.

We discuss what motorcyles they each ride now and the motorcycles they started out on, as well as how they got started riding.

We touch on Eugene's experience as a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) RiderCoach.

We also talk about the challenges and rewards related to working with, supporting, and being associated with WRWR, which has grown very rapidly beyond anyone's original expectations. And we consider the ways in which WRWR is helping to change the future for women, women motorcyclists, and motorcycling in general.

And we discuss the construction of the batons, and the technology behind them, and the impressive amount of ingenuity and craftsmanship that Eugene put into creating them for WRWR.

We also touched on the future of WRWR and how Shana and Eugene see it developing in the years to come.
