In this episode I have a great discussion with Scott Rybarik. Scott and I talk about lots of topics related to motorcycles and motorcycling, including community, running clubs, managing risk and performance, how people learn new skills, taking kids racing, the lessons of motorcycling that relate to other parts of life, modern motorcycle electronics and tires and are they too good, and much, much more.

In this episode I have great chat with Manny Bastos, who got his motorcycle and track day instructor training with Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS), and now runs his own rider training school, Riders Academy, at New York Safety Track (NYST). I recently completed the Riders Academy and plan to do many more track days at NYST. We talk about track days, NYST, Yamaha Champions Riding School (YCRS), my recent training at California Superbike School (CSS), and why people do track days and how any street rider can benefit from learning to ride on the track. And we cover a lot of other topics including track riding, street riding, wheelies and more!

In this episode I chat with Jordan Long from J.L. Unlimited. Jordan is a motorcycle enthusiast, club racer, track day coach and motorcycle podcaster. We cover everything from how he got started riding, to how he found riding again when he was in the Navy stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii, and how he eventually got hooked on racing his Yamaha R6 at the club level. We talk quite a bit about MotoAmerica, and the prior history of motorcycle road racing in the US, with the AMA Pro Series and the days when Daytona Motorsports Group (DMG) ran professional motorcycle road racing in this country. We also talk about his 9-year-old daughter’s interest in motorcycles and how he is looking to get her set up with an Ohvale GP-0. And we end off speculating about when the COVID-19 pandemic will be better under control, and when we might expect to return to some sense of normalcy regarding track days and road racing...and we reflect on how lucky we are that the MotoAmerica road racing series takes place in a single country, and that it will be much easier for the organizers to get things back up and running than it will be for the international based series like MotoGP and WorldSBK.

This episode starts out with me reading the new mission statement for my podcast, and then I look back over the podcast since its inception by reading the list of past episode titles, and more importantly commenting on and giving my thoughts about each episode, what was significant about them, what they meant to me, and any updates I have on the topics they covered. If you have not listened to the back catalog of episodes this is a great way for you to find out which ones you missed that you might be interested in. Then you can queue them up to listen to in your favorite podcast app. Since the Thanksgiving holiday is approaching I thought it would also be appropriate to give thanks and talk about all of the people that I am thankful for regarding the sport of motorcycling that you and I love so much. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This episode is a good old chinwag with Tony Sherriff, who did all types of motorcycle racing in the 1960s and 70s in New Zealand and Australia. Tony shares a lot of stories related to racing both on and off the track. We touch a little bit on how motorcycle technology has changed over the years, but much of what we discuss highlights the fact that while the motorcycles and the equipment have evolved over the years, the true spirit, adventure and excitement of motorcycles and motorcycle racing has definitely stayed the same…or maybe like a fine wine has gotten even better with age!

This episode is an interview with MotoAmerica Superbike racer Kyle Wyman who grew up in the Harley-Davidson dealership that was started by his grandfather in 1962. Both of his parents drag raced cars and motorcycles at the professional level, and he has been racing motorcycles since he was 8 years old. Kyle became a professional motorcycle racer at age 16 and he raced flat track for several years until switching to motorcycle road racing with his two younger brothers. Kyle has owned his own race team for many years and now Kyle Wyman Racing is fielding a Ducati Panigale V4 R in the MotoAmerica Superbike series, which Kyle is riding himself. Kyle has also been a motorcycle riding and racing instructor since 2014 and he recently started his own online motorcycle training school, KWR Coaching, which is open to riders of all experience levels.
