This episode features an interview with Wes Fleming who has been riding motorcycles for many years, has over a 100,000 miles under his belt, and also does a lot to support the motorcycle community through this podcasts, web site, YouTube channel and the work he does for the BWM Motorcycle Owers of America (also know as the BMW MOA).
Wes recently purchased a 2019 Indian FTR 1200 S for his 50th birthday, and that’s what gave us the idea to get together for the first time and do an episode together. Although his new motorcycle is the focus of the episode, we spend a lot of time talking about the process of buying a new motorcycle, and topics like why Wes chose this bike, doing your research before you visit the dealer to make a purchase, and the like (see the episode Description for more details).
I also talk about joining Gina on the Long Island leg of the Women Riders World Relay (WRWR) and some additional details about the Bohn Armor that I wear when I ride.
