Jon began riding shortly after starting a family, not the typical stage in a person’s life to jump on a motorcycle. The obvious need for self-preservation fueled skill development and eventual MSF coaching certification. After years of riding twisties with friends, he was hooked on sport riding and began studying more advanced techniques. Jon shares his experience with fellow riders so they too can have more confidence and enjoyment in the curves. Be it road trips with his friends or teaching Street Skills courses, Jon’s happy to ride every chance he can.

The photo below was taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway on the way to 2019 Loud Pipes! Gettysburg Meet-up. It was a great trip again this year! Rich is one of the hosts of the Loud Pipes! podcast and the owner of RDub Studios, LLC which produces Loud Pipes!, and three other motorcycle related podcasts as well as the occasional YouTube video. Starting out riding a Kawasaki KLR650 anywhere and everywhere, a 12 year stint was had on a 2007 Harley-Davidson Softail Deuce. Around 2016 he was bitten hard by the sport bike bug, leading to the purchase of a Yamaha R6, and doing several track days on it, and then converting the daily ride from the Harley to a Honda Interceptor. Rich mentioned "I am pleased to support Chris, 'Old Man Slacker', in his podcasting efforts and it is a treat to watch the growth and progress of his podcast over time. "
You can contact Rich and find out more about RDub Studios at http://www.rdubstudios.com/ and the Loud Pipes! motorcycle podcast at https://www.loudpipes.net/.
Harley is retired from a career as a Marketing/Sales Professional at a Fortune 100 Company and is currently a New York State Certified Motorcycle Instructor for the “On The Road Again” Motorcycle School in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. He also serves as their Marketing and Public Relations manager and as a part time wrench. After riding mini bikes, he found himself flying down Utica Ave. on a broken down bicycle with a lawnmower engine driving the front tire through a roller. While attempting to stop it by reaching over the engine to get to the throttle he got the shock of his life through the sparkplug. So, sliding through an intersection with the rear wheel locked and the front still pulling, he knew he loved this sport. Harley got his motorcycle endorsement at 19...his first new bike was the quick Suzuki X6 Hustler and he has had a succession of bikes following that.
What’s in the garage? Harley Davidson Road King, Triumph Bonneville T100, Triumph Street Triple R, Moto Guzzi V9, 1972 Yamaha XS650 and a 1977 Sportster!
He was very active in gymkhana (Mini Coopers) and Road Courses (Jaguar E type). Harley strives to be a Motorcycle Ambassador and Safety proponent!!!

Here is what Jerry shared about himself:
"I rode a little in college on a friend's bike, but I didn't really start in earnest until i turned 40, when I bought a new Honda VTX 1300. I have some great friends who are NYPD Highway Patrol Motorcycle officers who trained me and helped be get prepared for my road test. Those guys, plus Keith Code's Twist of the Wrist book and video was how I was trained and got my initial understanding of the theories on how to ride. I went from the VTX to a new 2008 Harley Sportster 1200L. I really miss that bike...it was great fun and easy to ride. I didn't want to take time away from the kids, and as they got older I decided to sell the bike in 2012, and I got awat from riding for a while. Now they are both in college, so in April of 2019 I found a 2011 Electra Glide Ultra Limited (my dream bike). I ride mostly around Suffolk County and out east when I can, but I am looking to do some touring in the near future. I love the Ultra but it is a very specific kind of ride. So, I hope to get a second used bike this year to have a completely different riding experience like a standard/naked bike or maybe another Sportster. I am very happy to support the podcast as I feel it is an important resource for riders of all different types and skills...especially new riders!"
