In this episode I have an awesome chat with Miyouko Wu, who makes her living as a nurse specializing in wound care, but who also spends many of her weekends as a track day rider and amateur motorcycle racer. Miyouko started riding motorcycles on the street in 2015, started doing track days a year later, and with the encouragement and support of some very good track friends, including Dave Moss from Dave Moss Tuning, started club racing in the AFM, the American Federation of Motorcyclists. Miyouko also recently started her own social media channel, “Miyouko Moto", to help support her passion to encourage and support more people, especially women, to try motorcycling, track day riding and racing.

NOTE: There is some explicit language in this episode.
This episode features an interview with Hayley Bell, the founder and the main driving force behind the Women Riders World Relay (WRWR), a worldwide pursuit "to ignite a global sisterhood of inspirational women to promote courage, adventure, unity and passion for biking from all corners of the world and do something that’s never been done before to this scale." I also share what I have learned so far from Keith Code's "A Twist of the Wrist" books and DVDs, discuss a new part I installed on my Z900RS, talk about a new Dainese jacket that could really help protect you in a crash, and give some details about a non-motorcycle podcast that I appeared on as a guest to help promote motorcycling to people that don't ride motorcycles.
